Please put Memphis Beat back on the air. It was good watching a show that showed real people. It was clean and gave you different sides of life. We need to see more shows like this today. Rizzoli & Isles is a good show too. Why not have the two shows on together.
Please do not let this fall on deaf ears.

I LOVE this series! I’ve been looking for it to return. Very clever and well done – the acting is superb! A cut above most anything else on TV these days . . .

I think Memphis Beat is a very down home character driven show that includes amazing music and great plot. It would be a shame if the show was discontinued. I have several friends that are fanatic fans, as I am.

I love Memphis Beat and Jason Lee is super in this series. Please don’t cancel this show.
So many great shows are being cancelled and being replaced by more stupid reality shows.

It deserves a second season. All Housewives and reality shows should be removed and snatched off TV today.
