    I think cancelling “Parenthood” would be a HUGE mistake on the part of NBC. It is so refreshing to watch a TV show, today, with such exceptonally talented actors (both young and old), who can, so convincingly, portray each of the distinctive characters that make up the Braverman family. The characters are so convincing and the storylines so realistic and compelling, that you just can’t wait to see the next episode. Jason Katims has blown me away twice, now—first, with “Friday Night Lights” and now, “Parenthood”. BRAVO!!!

    Not smart of NBC to wait until March for Revolution to return. Hopefully the fans do not forget to tune in. A lot of people have already lost interest and the long break will not help the show at all.

    What the heck is NBC thinking???? I only watch TV on Tuesday nights. Lately all of my viewing time has been spent watching The New Normal, Go On, and Parenthood. Tonight I pop the corn, get my drink and comfy chair and WHATTTTTTT ……….. No Go On, then I check the guide and see that some silly game show is taking over The New Normal spot. I think I just gave up on tv and will call the cable company tomorrow and cancel.

    Please renew parenthood we watch very little tv but we have always watched parenthood.We also have done Nielson rating but it’s never been during parenthood.

    I find it hard to believe that NBC has cancelled such a great half-hour show. After 3 episodes of ANIMAL PRACTICE, I really think it should be picked up for the full season. Great acting and hilarious situations with the animals must be applauded – at least it has a good storyline. With all the other crap that is remaining on TV, why would you take off something that is good? Who is deciding this? Please give it another chance as it should be picked up. C’mon–Rizzo needs more TV time. Please consider reversing your decision…

      why would nbc give a full season order to a comedy only 1.1 in the 18 – 49 demo rating…

      it the lowest rated comedy on network tv and probable some cable sitcoms are rated higher…

      NBC made the right choice

        Clearly the bulk of the viewing audience had the same issues I have had watching this show. Because anyone I have talked to (inlcuding the nearly 5K people on FB) have all loved this show. My youngest son is not a big tv watcher. He is 11 years old and actually sits down for an entire episode of the show every week. When he discovered that the show was not being aired anymore, he stopped watching ANYTHING on channel 11, and has vowed not to bother with the network ever again. So when he gets to the age they are “targeting” (An age I am personally in) he will NEVER give NBC primetime numbers. He is also an incredibly outspoken 11 year old. And has already written the network to complain more than 100 times. Hey, Family Guy was brought back after 6 years because of people doing this. I can only hope that Animal Planet or Comedy Central will pick the show up and let it keep going. I mean someone with a clue about good television shows would be nice.

    Well Comcast/Xfinity isn’t helping the ratings for any of these shows. Not only did it NOT record what was scheduled, but it also would not allow me to tune to the channel during the time that it was supposed to be recording them. So although I would have given ratings to the NBC lineup from 8-10pm cst they won’t show because Comcast prohibited the viewing of any of them. WTG Comcast, as if the networks didn’t already think that all good shows should be removed before anyone gets a chance to watch them, but now you are not even letting them get a peek at the fact that people already are watching them, or at least want to. Ok Rant over.
