Alot of the shows aired are not suitable for tv and not interesting. Most of the series from the 70′s were good and you looked forward to watching them. There is nothing on tv that i can say that i want to even turn my tv on for. If i have to see one more music video or girls gone wild i’m going to cancel tv. Our kids watch tv constantly and we have taught them nothing but infidelity and divorce. I think it’s only going to get worse if people like you don’t help to change what we see. Everyone i talk to feels the same. Help to teach our kids that life isn’t all divorce,cheating and sex video’s and maybe the next generation can fix the damage already done. TV is the biggest influence for people use it right!

I cannot believe they pulled daybreak. What is abc doing? do they know? what, do they have to have a trillion people watching in order not to pull a show? As you can tell, I am a little disgusted with them. They should at least let us finish watching the final episodes.
