  2. Patti says

    I just would like to say I think it sucks that the Lying Game has been canceled but they can show these stupid shows that end up staying like oh I don’t know how I met your mother ? Really the Lying Game at least had you wondering what would happen next. This one has no plot at all How I Met Your Mother is just DUMB and should be canceled …Cancel it and bring back the good shows that keep people interested for gods sake . Who cares about Ratings they get paid either way …

    This is for all The Lying Game fans. They need a lot more of support. Get you friends to help to bring The Lying Game back for a Season 3. I even went as far as to post this to some of the facebook pages. They need 7500 more signatures, they only have 4592 signatures, and growing slowly.


    I just signed the petition “ABC Family: Bring back The Lying Game!” on

    It’s important. Will you sign it too? Here’s the link:

    I really love The Lying Game. It is a good show. Why do they always cancel the good shows? The reality shows are the ones that need to be canceled.

  6. Kim says

    The shows that they need to cancel are all of this fake reality shows and not the family shows like the Lying Games. Please bring it back!!!!

  7. lynn says

    I’m getting so sick of them canceling shows that are good and leaving huge cliffhangers. I think they should tie up all the lose ends. I’m about to boycott the like some others already are.

  8. Kelly Pendergrass says

    Are you kidding me. I couldn’t stand waiting between seasons. My daughters and their friends, my employees, we always talked about this show trying to figure it out. Who leaves a show just hanging with no answers? That’s ridiculous!!!!!!! Don’t tell me to read the book because it doesn’t run on the same story line, really people that was just rude!!!!

  9. country momma says

    why cancel such a good show??? I actually enjoyed sitting and watching it with my daughters, something we NEVER agree on. I say re-sign the cast and move on with another season!!!!

  10. Peggy says

    The networks cancelled Drop Dead Diva and were able to bring it back , so why is it ABC Family feels it has to drop a show that is doing well for another reality show that we all know is spliced together for so-called intrigue? The Vineyard reminds me that I am so glad I didn’t deal w/ Jr High crushes when I was 20, they really need to dump it and bring back The Lying Game, and if they plan on only airing a specific show for so many episodes, don’t leave it w/ a cliffhanger! I read all 8 books that make up the storyline, to try and see what was similar and the series moved far away from actual storyline, and it’s a actually a better storyline, shame ABC can’t stand behind their creation and that so many think reality TV is what we want…..

  11. Paula says

    I am so furious that the Lying Game was Cancelled!!!!! And actually twisted and the vineyard are boring… I stopped watching ABC family since the only good show on anymore is Pretty Little Liars. I agree with the person before me… They left the Lying Game fans on edge!!!! BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!

    • country momma says

      I agree 100%!!! I can’t even get into the Vineyard its stupid highschool drama, my daughters don’t like it either

  12. Ang says

    I wish they would bring this show back. I loved it and it had fans and a following. They brought in other not so awesome shows like the vineyard and twisted. get those gone bring this back and all will be right.

  13. Laurie says

    Stop canceling all the good shows! Too many questions were left unanswered. At least make one more season to wrap it up. Too many shows are cancelled and it deters me from even trying to “get into” a show because it will be cancelled in a couple seasons without a conclusion. The Lying Game will be missed.
