They should cast Karah Gravatt. She would be a great addition to the show.

This show is absolutely hysterical! Reba, Lily Tomlin, Sara Rue, the kids…just a great cast of characters! It is not uncommon to laugh through the whole show! I do hope this is renewed for another season as it does deserve it!

LOVE the show!! Such a great sitcom I love the promo for Malibu Country and Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing”what else can you do over and over in a reality situation but who can do it with a slight change and twist OH YEA AN ACTOR” SO correct at least we understand they are acting other wise on the reality TV it’s just pure BAD ACTING which is what you get with reality TV…Anyway only my opinion..

I feel that Reba is an absolutely funny Woman a fantastic actor a beautiful personality with a beautiful clean clear accent. She should have the show stay on longer and longer. Her ex should be brought in to not stir up crap but to take the punishment he deserves for ruining their marriage. Reba should make good of her career and supersede her ex in a few short show years. Her ex should become a lowlife and fall to ruin as a marriage breaker should. Reba’s actual life should play a reflection as to her character. Bring in some of her buds to make appearances to liven up the show some. This is what some of the older shows did like I Love Lucy and all her works. Reba is a huge star so promote her as such. Even if it’s just as a passing in the recording studio it will bring everyone in to see the special guest. Only an idiot would make this show go away. Lilly makes a good 60’s Mom that we can relate to and is still funny as ever. Praying for the show to stay.

This show deserves to be renewed! Reba is a very funny gal and so is Lily Tomlin!
This show gives me a Teenager something to look forward to watching. where it doesn’t involve parents being dumb or push-overs. I think America needs this show because society has stereotyped mothers roles and respect towards parents. This show shows that there is still hope, and that the children don’t rule a household. Thank you Reba for giving this to us Americans,, your fans,, and world-wide fans,
This show holds a strong message within.

Love each actor individually..just not together. Reba is an amazing performer and singer seems cheesy to hear her sing on this comedy. Lessens her intense presence

I feel like I have seen this show before. Only it was called Reba, and it had a much better and funnier cast around Reba.

KEEP IT!!! Characters in these type of shows have to develope over time. We as viewers need time to “get to know” the characters. Even after only 3 episodes the “friendship” is beginning. Hot in Cleveland became so popular because of that. Learn from TVLand!!! That’s where I’ll be if this show is cancelled!

I hope ABC gives this show a chance. It is so nice to see and enjoy a good comedy instead of all the other messy shows that are on tv .

Love Reba (as a performer.
The show is a loser.

Agree with you, Bob. This show is nothing but a loser. If I want to hear or see a Southern family go through the trials and tribulations of life I’ll watch “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo”. At least THOSE southern accents are real. Reba needs to stick to singing..

Are you accusing Reba McEntire of having a fake southern accent? Now, that is hilarious.

Totally think Malibu Country should be renewed for a second season!!!!!!!!!!! Please don’t be dumb (no offense) like the CW was and cancel this show like they did Reba. It was such a good show, and there is too much reality on these days. Please keep this on, please!!!
