Please bring back this show. “Made in Jersey” was great. Loved the characters and story lines. CBS really blew it when they canceled this show. There are hardly any good shows on TV and they had to cancel THIS show??? Pretty stupid move, if you ask me. >:-/

I agree. Made in Jersey was not given a chance. In my opinion, this show has great potential and some talented actors. Tired of the reality shows. Come on CBS…listen to your audience.

I loved this show and excitedly watched the final episodes without realizing that is what they were. I was so happy to see that they had found a new home. Clearly I had not gotten enough sleep over the holidays because silly me I thought that CBS actually wanted people to watch their station on Saturdays, unlike the other 365 days of the year that I don’t even bother checking the lineup on it. Oops! My bad, but at least I was able to get 2 hours of entertainment out of it, and a few minutes of hope that not all tv execs had lost their sense of entertainment.

I loved this show they should have given it a fair chance. I think the ratings would have reflected that they should have kept this show on air.

So sad to see it go! This is why CBS is one of the lowest ranked networks, and will remain in that position as long as this network chooses to support the mindless reality shows that turn good brains to mush! Heaven forbid CBS actually show respect for their viewers discerning tastes in programming and keep shows like “Made In Jersey” on the air! Oh, I forgot! The show consisted of good actors, quality writing and consistently got better and better with each episode that aired. That is a sure fire reason to pull the plug! CBS, keep it up and you are sure to stay exactly where you are, …at the bottom!

Made in Jersey has potential. Give it a chance or give another network the opportunity to do so.

We really enjoyed this show. It wasn’t given a chance. Please bring it back. We have watched every episode. It got better each week.

I enjoyed all 8 episodes. I’m sorry that once again CBS pulled the plug too quickly on a good show. If I were pitching a new show, CBS would be my last resort because they seem to have the quickest trigger finger. Unfortunately everything is about $$$ and quality tends to matter much less. The executives at CBS look at this as a failure of the show, but it is their failure. If you can’t make a rating success out of a quality product, maybe it’s time for some of the executives to go.

I enjoyed this show and would think that the network should reconsider. I liked the characters and the storylines – a lot more fun than some stupid reality nonsense! Maybe USA can pick it up or some other good network will give it another shot.

We just discovered “Made in Jersey” and thoroughly enjoyed the few episodes that we’ve seen, and now CBS, true to form, is cancelling it. Hopefully, FOX or USA will pick it up. Apparently when we like a TV show, it gives it the ‘kiss of death’.
