Malibu Country has to be renewed for a second season as Reba is a very talented and amazing actress and singer, not to mention she is just plain awesome! All the cast are great! it is just one of those shows that cheers you up right away :) I think ABC has to give it a chance as I don’t see the point in bringing out a show for just one season as it doesn’t do it any justice. This show rocks and I think our TV’s could do with some fresh new faces to fill it with :)

ABC needs to renew “Malibu Country.” Reba McEntire is such a talented entertainer, and it is nice to have her on TV again on Friday nights!

The inaugural season ratings definitely merit a second season, and I think ABC sees that. “Malibu Country” consistently retained about 90% of its lead-in (successful by any measure) and remains the most-watched freshman comedy, despite airing on low HUT-level Friday night. Considering that, along with the fact ABC is up on Fridays by 13% over last season for its best Friday performance since the 2008-2009 season, it’s clear that ABC has other nights to build. Fridays shouldn’t be a focus.

I love Reba the singer , the actress, and the person. I love the show. ABC will be making a mistake cancellimg it. However u should take a lesson from the old Ozzie and Harriet Show and Nashville show on TV now. Ricky sang once on every show and viewers went wild. They sing on Nashville. Let Reba sing a song a show. Why are u wasting her talent. We all love her singing and people would tune in im droves to hear her!

I’m not so sure Neilson is the way to determine ratings any longer.. the decent shows get cancelled and the idiot junk continues to stay on.. put the damn receiver on our TV if you want some real ratings… Killing fun, enjoyable programing for stupid reality junk is nuts!

I love this show so much. It’s nice to be able to watch an actual comedy on television these days besides all the reality shows that have taken over. “Malibu Country” is actually doing very well, becoming tv’s #1 biggest and most successful freshman sitcom. This show needs to be renewed.

Malibu Country is awesome. It needs time to be noticed (and it will) – with all the shows available to watch out there. This will be a 7 year or more hit. Great Cast. Awesome humor. Wonderful show. It’s a great one – a keeper.

this show has great potential to bee a good hit. Reba is very good and Lily Tomlin is great. The show just needs time to take off. Look at the original TV Show DALLAS. It did not get really big unitl its 3rd season. Then it goy so big it is back on the air over 20 years later. Give Reba a chance to make this show good.
