Great show amid the TV wasteland, there is very little programming worth watching and Hell on Wheels is worth watching. I hope AMC takes into consideration that Dish dropped them and the ratings faultered a bit. It always comes down to money not the quality of the programming.

Incredible show!! the lily-cullen hook-up just might be the hottest one on tv since Kate and Sawyer in the bear cage. All these characters are finally moving somewhere…PLEASE give this show more time to keep going.

I would be very unhappy if this show is cancelled. I really like this show and would like to see a season 3. Season 2 has been great!

glad to see the ratings went up this week after taking a dip last week! I have grown to love the show and I hope it stays around!

The series is awesome. I am sad that it has only 10 espisodes once again. I could go for many more. I am always anxiously awaiting the next episode.

The real problem here has to do with AMC asking to much from the Dish Network and their millions of subscribers. Dish decide to replace AMC with Mark Cubans/Ryan Seacrests axstvHD formally HDNet. If and when Hell on Wheels does get cancelled look for DirecTV to come save the day. This is a great show that I can guarantee DirecTV will be looking at to invest in and to add to their Audience Network like they did with “Saturday Night Lights” and Glenn Close “Damages” both of which is a hit for DirecTV.

The second season is off to a terrific start. I can’t wait for the next episode.

I can’t get enough of this show! I’ll be very sad if it cancels :(
