    I really ;ike the show and all the stars so I hope they do not cancel it. If they cancel some of the shows that it seems it may and there is nothing but these reality shoes and I do not like them.

    Please keep Memphis Beat — one of my favorites especially when Jason Lee sings the Elvis songs at the end

    It’s one of the best shows on tv now and I hope it comes back for more than just a second season. Perfect cast, great music and terrific writing.
