    Everyone I know that knew that Surviving Jack was on, loved it. It has been a long time since I have seen a good sitcom, family oriented, funny, and worth watching every week. Please, bring it back!!! You just didn’t give it enough time to get known. It was up to the 4th episode before I knew it was on and then I turned it onto my family and friends too. They couldn’t wait until the next episode. We kept waiting for more. We are all very upset that Fox canceled this show.

    Surviving Jack was the first sitcom in a long time that I recommended friends not miss. It is brilliantly acted and I was looking forward to the next season. Knowing how others like it I have to ask WHY? Please reconsider.

    Who decides which programs are funny, not TV executives. They always pull the
    funniest and leave on the dumbest. Please renew Surviving Jack, best comedy
    in a long while.

    Best comedy on TV made me laugh out loud. Melon has always been well suited for comedy and this one is GREAT. The ratings were probably down because it started mid season and then on a week off 2. Give it a full seaxon in a regular time slot and then evaluate. I told so many people about this show and when they finally caught it they loved it

    I love surviving jack. I don’t get how they can have thousands of dancing, singing, talent and all those other rediculous reality shows and then pull great and funny shows like this. Why bother making shows at all?

    I can’t believe that another great and funny show is being pulled. Why bother making shows when you pull the good ones and leave a thousand singer and dancing and tanlet shows among the other rediculous reality shows. I would love shows like surviving jack to be on instead.

    Hysterical! Glad to see a good sitcom on again….sad to see it pulled so quickly. Sick of all these ‘reality’ shows. Not sure what smart guys are choosing what shows to keep and what shows to can but I’m seriously considering not watching tv anymore.

    Bring back surviving jack!!! There are plenty of 70s and 80s babies out there who can appreciate this show like I do andthe problems they face as parents and teenagers in the show are relatable to todays problems as well. Love the show and cast dont think it got a fair shot!
