    Hi! I have been trying to find a definite on October Road. I really LOVE the show. It is about time something is aired that doesn’t have High School Sex going on. It’s been along time since I have even gotten into a weekly show. I had just about given up on tv all together. I really felt connected to this show. Please let the public know if the show will return. I don’t even care when. I just want to know it is coming back. Also, how many people would it take to bring it back? Thanks for your consideration.

    My aunt and I started watching October Rd. during the basketball season when they were airing the games during the time slots usually airing CSI on CBS. We immediately got hooked! I couldn’t wait for thursday to come, to see what happened next. Well, I was totally shocked to see that it was not on one Thursday! Then I start doing research online and find they may be canceling the show already…. Well, so much for watching ABC. I think I will stick to my CBS shows from now on! I guess that is what I get for straying!!!!

  10. Emily Brown says

    When will October Road be back on??? Me and my friends love it!!!!!! If it doesn’t come back i don’t know what i’ll do!

    Get rid of Passions it’s obviously a truly awful show but This new series “Drive” the Cast all can Act and Well I might add. Why would FOX want to cut a show that quite obviously will make them money. That is what they want after all. They Let 4/5 episodes be aired and then pull the plug, that doesn’t give enough time to even get the word out there that there is this absolutely awesome new series even out there. For someone who doesn’t sit in front of the television 24/7. But, then all of a sudden this great show is being aired and you can wait to come home and watch this one show. Then you find out that it’s already being canceled. I’m choked some people are definitely are second guessing their decisions and as long as I can remember your not supposed to second guess yourself. Because when you second guess yourself you make mistakes. That’s just what FOX has done here, with Canceling two awesome series. That would Definitely bring them serious money in their bank accounts. If FOX isn’t in business for money, which obviously that’s what it seems by cutting Firefly and now DRIVE. Truly ignorant move on their part. FOX Bring “Drive” back give it more then 4 episodes, can’t possibly have already gotten an accurate rating on this one series. Please don’t make the same mistake a second time. Your choice to get rid of the Soap Opera Passions is a smart one, so there is still hope. But all, bets are off for stupidity if cut one of your best series of all time. Give DRIVE a true shot. I would bet more than 2/3rds of the people on your committee board, does in fact love this show or at least can hardly wait to find out what will happen next. Again Please, rethink this cut on Drive, give it honest shot.

    Passions will be available on DirectTV through NBC Productions. Thank goodness. It is very diffrent from the usual soap.

  14. Holli Hollday says

    I watch a lot of TV and I am very happy that Studio 60 may be coming back. Admittedly, the first episodes, which attempted to focus on the actual show instead of the charaters producing the sho. The mintue the show format changed. The show was a hit. Then, the stupid network cancels the show. Please tell me they have come to their senses and are bring the show back.
