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?

My husband and I love The Middle. I haven’t seen my husband laugh so hard at a show since Frasier was cancelled. It really keeps us in stitches! I hope it runs for 15 seasons!!

I lOVE The Middle & each of the characters. i admire the actors as well. So nice to have a family whose differences are normal , not hateful & at bottom, care for each other. I can identify with their situations. each week. It’s the only show I reserve the time to sit in front of the tv & watch live. That’s not to say I don’t watch the tapes repeatedly. Thanks ABC for showing good judgment in renewing a jewel of a show.

Sean, I agree completely with you. This one is laugh out loud funny…. the “overrated” one is seldom funny at all.
