CBS should never have cancelled Unforgettable in the first place. With 12 million viewers, what was CBS thinking? This was the best (and only) show with a killer female lead since Cagney & Lacey. Glad it’s back this summer (I won’t miss one minute), but this show and Poppy should be given a full season!

Can’t wait for Unforgettable. I was beyond pissed when they cancelled it, especially since it did so well in ratings. But I am very grateful it is coming back:) Thank You CBS!

I am looking forward to seeing Unforgettable again. Really love the show. But who thought of putting the more on Sunday night? Why save it just to put it in the worst time slot on tv? If one doesn’t want to watch sports or has to work, the only way to watch a show is by recording it. However, with prior tv programming notoriously running over a DVR won’t be able to record. And even if one would want to watch the app directly, who can stay up long enough? As much as I love Unforgettable, Sunday night’s will kill any show.

I’ll probably just read the novel instead of watching the adaptation of ‘Under The Dome’.
