    So excited Haven is back. I to am nobody who loves to get lost in a little fantasy and a love story. Also I to am over the 50+ population. Ps to the comment or on bad shows and nobodies, learn to spell and structure sentences.

  3. Nancy Houser says

    I am so disappointed. I tape Haven. For some reason the finale was 2 hours and for some reason my cable box did not tape the 2nd hour. Did the 2nd hour show up as a repeat or something? Can I watch the finale online? If so, where?

  4. says

    I love the show it is good, well written a good escape from everything. My problem is what is happening with the episodes form 12/14 & 21. It was not kjn 12/14 and the 21st is showing as a repeat.
    Season 4 is good to know, but what about the end of season 3

  5. Diane says

    I’m so relieved it was renewed. My husband and I both love it, and buy it on Amazon so we can watch it more than once. By the way, he has a PhD and I have a masters. We’re also older than the 25 – 49 surveyed.

  6. Rena Moretti says

    I’ll translate for those who don’t know Hollywood PR:

    Haven’s ratings were really, really awful but we’re going to renew it anyway because maybe we’ll get a job at the production company when they finally fore us for having killed SciFi Channel with bad TV shows like Haven.

    Demo numbers are irrelevant (and ageist), so are Live+7 numbers.

    Advertisers pay for pairs of eyes of all ages for Live+3.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if sites like this one would not let PR spin be echoed unchallenged?

  7. Samara says

    I am beyond thrilled! This is my favorite show on television right now!! I was dreading the thought of watching, yet another, good show being cancelled! Now that I don’t have to worry – I am elated!

    • Rena Moretti says

      Great news for you.

      For me it’s the usual bad news that Siffy will continue to fritter away money on bad shows nobody watches.

      • Tamara says

        1.5 million nobodys. Charming. And what about non-US nobodies, itunes nobodies and nobodies who shop at Amazon and Play and join Lovefilm and Netflix?
        Gosh what a lot of nobodies. Well if all of us liked the same stuff the tv world would be even more bland than it currently is and we’d all be living in Stepford. When I was a kid we had two channels, and BBC2 when the weather was ok, and no video, dvd, tivo or whatever and there still managed to be things on worth watching. Nowadays once you’ve got rid of the porn and sport, then the “reality” crap and all the nonentity, (sorry ‘celebrity’) gossip, there’s a couple of channels of endless reruns only some of which is any good but once you can recite a show backwards you really don’t need to watch it again. Every so often there is something promising which seems to instantly get cancelled (eg Lie to Me, Moonlight) or something that could have been good but took odd directions (Eureka), so please allow us nobodies a few moments of peace to celebrate the continued existence of something 1/2 decent that we actually enjoy and we promise never to bother you or ask yo to watch it.
