    I absolutely loved it. It was an amazing thing to see our countries finest up close and personal and it is a tragic loss of one of them in Texas yesterday, i.e. Chris Kile. I would love for it to become a regular season show. It would be amazing. My parents loved it as well.

    The show was a badly conceived mixing of Mark Burnett’s ‘Combat Missions’ and Survivor. The audience saw through the sham and fled in droves. Considering that by the end of it’s run the ratings had cratered, the only mystery at this point is why hasn’t NBC officially pulled the plug yet.

        Phil,
        Who cares about Eve and who her fiance is? This was about our military and special forces in the U.S. It was not fake. It was real and it was great not to mention they raised money for the various military organizations. It is not a dating show dude. That was not its purpose. Grow up and realize what it was for.

    Never saw it advertized, so completely missed it. Then found it , loved, loved iton cable, On Demand. Love, loved, loved it. Please bring it back! Nothing like it on TV!!!

    Love it, I wish you could make up a show for Grady and Eve together like Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Moonlighting, etc. the chemistry between them is fantastic, thats what great shows are made from. I hope the show is renewed. I thank all our service men that risk their lives, help families hit by hurricanes, the list is long. Now they have a show to donate back and it’s wonderful. Maybe some people should stand in front of a bullet coming at them and see how it feels. Thank you.

    We loved this show! My son is a Marine and I’ve always been proud of him! Watching Stars earn Stripes, and seeing all the Special Ops makes me appreciate the military even more! I certainly don’t think a 4 star General would be a part of anything if he didn’t think it was worthy!! I know I loved the show, all it stood for, and was glad to see military charities benefit from it. I hope it gets renewed for a second season (with the same ops :)

    This was a great show and I missed most of not knowing it was out there. Never saw an advertisement. Great season finale, great dynamic. I am a US Army veteran who did most of these things. miss it still.

    Great Show! Best Reality show yet. Hope to see more in the future. Love the winners!
    As for JNJ, like Susie said, these men and women are fighting for him to be able to give his negative viewpoint. If he doesn’t like the show, don’t watch it. It’s that simple!

    Wretched show celebrating the serial aggressions this country is still in the process of committing. I wish those of you who support it would go ahead and suit up. Go kill other people’s children to make well-connected contractors richer. Then maybe you’ll have the sense to read General Smedley Butler’s, the most decorated solider in US history, about what US militarism is really all about. It’s not about protecting our “freedom.” That’s a sick joke. Haven’t you noticed, simpletons, that our freedoms have been disappeared by the same scum who disappear human beings into our global gulag? The US is a dangerous rogue state, a threat to the world and its own citizens. As Martin Luther King said, the greatest purveyor of violence on earth. Face up to it.

      your views are anti american why dont you pack your bags and move out of this country that you so hate and live else where in the world . I have traveled to many countries and I want to kiss the ground here every time i get home we have the greatest country in the world !!

      Dude go get some mental help…we have fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, grandmothers, etc fighting a war everyday so you can get on a computer and talk like that…it is disgusting and so are you…it does not matter why the troops are over there, the fact is that they have to be and they choose to be and they are fighting for all of the freedoms that we have here in the U.S. and nothing else matters. This show gave back to the military and its causes and showed people just a little taste of what our servicemen and women face everyday. What is wrong with you? Maybe you should go ahead and suit up and see what they go through in a day for somone like you. You are a disgusting human being.

    To JNJ: True Americans love our Special Ops and APPRECIATE everything they do for their country. JNJ, you can also thank our wonderful Special Ops and American Soldiers for giving you the freedom of speech to write those trashy comments. If you don’t like watching Stars Earn Stripes, turn the station. Just a little friendly advice.

  10. JNJ says

    Oh please, another trashy try out show! Get them off the air, represent true laziness on the part of the network. People with real income do not watch this jumk.
