Will the ratings remain high or will they fall in season five? Could it be cancelled or is it guaranteed a sixth season, thanks to syndication profits? Stay tuned to find out.

THE MIDDLE IS THE BEST FAMILY SHOW ON TV. THIS IS APPT. TELEVISION FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. MY HUSBAND AND 2 BOYS AGES 13 AND 16 LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY WEDNESDAY FOR THIS SHOW. WE WATCH THE RERUNS AND HAVE BOUGHT DVD’S OF EACH SEASON. ABC WOULD BE FOOLISH TO EVER CONSIDER LETTING THIS GREAT SHOW GO. THERE ARE NOT MANY SHOWS THAT A FAMILY CAN SIT DOWN TO WATCH TOGETHER.

LOVE “THE MIDDLE”. It’s a gem of a show. It should be promoted by ABC with fanfare and consistent advertising of the show. It’s a wholesome and “real” family life situation comedy. Can’t wait for Seasons 6,7,8,9,10….20

I love love love the Hallmark channel. I watch it all the time ,however, when “The Middle” comes on, I run to the remote to change the channel. What a horrific TV show. I gave it a chance but I won’t even contribute to the ratings….CLICK!

I LOVE the Middle – Keep it ON! I find it fun to see what happens as the kids grow up. My only disappointment ever with that show is that they showed KENNY’S FACE. Was way better when you only saw his back. Brooke Shields is great as the trashy neighbor too!
