The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

This is. really a great show but please Andy and Sam need to get married already. No more crazy distractions . Get rid of the chick who seems to want Sam back after Sam and Andy finally got back together. Otherwise I look forward to a series renewal for summer 2015.

This show started sucking really bad. Only Peter Mooney saved the show. We have had more than enough of dumb “Andy & Sam”. Kill them both off. Let Sam croak at the O.R. and then have Andy put a bullet in her brains and then let’s explore Nick better. If the writers don’t wise up now this show is finished! Started off good, tanked very fast in S2, S3 was the pits and S4 the worst until Peter’s character Nick upped the ante with his excellent acting. He’s about the only one who doesn’t looked bored of d0ing this show. Gail is a bore, Dov is insufferable, Traci is good & so is Chris. Matt Gordon & Lyriq Bent, excellent Keep all those and axe the rest. It’s time for Dov & Gail to die for good!!!

Think you need some more research. It was renewed a few months ago, and season 5 should air in January 2014

I typically add renewals/cancellations as updates to ratings posts but forgot to add one here. Thanks for your note. Production starts in early 2014 but season five won’t air on ABC until next summer.
