    I love this show, and have watched every episode to date. It’s adorable and is one of my favorite shows!

  2. Keith says

    I watch this show every week. The show is quirky and so are the characters. I only wish that they would not have had so many reruns during the season. It seemed like they would have three or four new episodes and then a rerun or two and then go back to the new episodes. It became annoying not knowing if there would be a new episode or not. Also I would have forgotten what happened to the characters in the last new episode.

  3. Pilar says

    I love this show and look forward to it every week and not only because its after my other favorite show. I would watch it even if it was on another day. Its so funny and I love the cast especially since it has two of the funniest people on there, SNL’s Ana Gasteyer and Chris Parnell. I absolutely adore Jane Levy and Jeremy sisto, the whole cast is wonderful and entertaining. This show makes my week. So please renew it and do not cancel this great show.

  4. Dawn says

    We really love the show. For me, there was no “breaking in” period. I was captivated my the show within the first five minutes. I usually don’t warm up to shows so fast.

    I hope that Suburgatory sticks around for another season. (Or two or three or four etc.) Between The Middle, Modern Family, and Suburgatory, ABC Programming is “kicking booty!”

    I think ABC is doing pretty well with its comedies this year! I’m not a huge fan of ‘Man Up’, but I’m really enjoying this show as well as ‘Last Man Standing’. I hope they both stick around.

  6. Craig says

    This is in my top five of new shows this season, and it is a nice lead in to Modern Family. I think it is helping to give Modern Family better ratings this season.

  7. Iris says

    I hope it stays on. I like Jeremy Sisto from L&O. The girl who plays his daughter is a breath of fresh air! The show is funny, and we all need a good laugh now & then. With all the blood & guts & shootem ups, we need a break from all the violence a few times a week! As a matter of fact, it”s the only new sitcom I’m watching. The others didn’t do it for me. And I watch a LOT of TV! I’m also sick & tired of hearing about your 18-49 crowd!!!!!!!!!!! What are the rest of us? Chopped liver? Our TV tastes don’t count? Bite me! And THIS is me being nice! You wouldn’t print what I REALLY have to say!

  8. says

    I really hope the show stays on! I enjoyed it, thought it was cute and funny and kept my attention, since I really dislike comedies. My company sent them jewelry to wear on the show so that is the reason I watched the series and set my dvr. I ended up keeping it on the scheduled dvr and can’t wait for the next week!
