The Middle: Renewed for Sixth Season on ABC

The Middle season sixAw Heck! ABC has renewed The Middle sitcom for a sixth season.

The Middlefollows the Heck family from a small town in Indiana as they try their best to get ahead. They’re played by Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher, and Atticus Shaffer.

Like most shows, The Middle is down year-to-year (by nearly 10% in the demo) but this series has remained a consistent performer for the network on Wednesdays at 8pm. That’s particularly important since ABC continues to struggle to find new comedy hits. Of this year’s crop, only The Goldbergs is a moderate success (it’s also been renewed).

What do you think? Are you glad that The Middle is returning for a sixth season or do you think the show should have been cancelled? How long should it run?

The middle is great! It is comedy that the average American can relate to. No smut and no disgusting sexual references. It is the only show I record if I am not home at 8pm on Wednesdays.

The Middle is the only network show I watch and I actually set it up to record. I love it so much that I bought the first five seasons! It should NEVER be cancelled… I agree with another commenter that it’s nice without sexual innuendos and embarrassing to watch scenes.

I think this show should never be cancelled! I LOVE this show! I love the fact everyone is not “perfect looking” and that it is not over-sexed like everything else these days – and the fact this show HAS NO LAUGH TRACK! I swear, since watching this sitcom I can NOT go back to sitcoms with laugh tracks. They seems so…FORCED! This is just about the only sitcom on these days that actually makes me LAUGH OUT LOUD! I’m not saying it’s perfect. Sometimes Axl is too hyper, Sue smiles too much, and Frankie just doesn’t seem to care! But hey – that’s really why it’s so great. Life isn’t perfect, and there are so many things to relate to in this show.
