Last season, ABC had high hopes for A Million Little Things but the drama series really struggled on Wednesday nights and it looked like it would be cancelled. The numbers got better when the network moved the series to Thursday nights and the show was renewed. Will the numbers improve in season two or, will they slide downward? Will A Million Little Things be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An extended family drama series, A Million Little Things stars David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, Grace Park, James Roday, Stephanie Szostak, Tristan Byon, Lizzy Greene, and Chance Hurstfield. Set in Boston, this series revolves around a tight-knit group of friends who are each feeling stuck in different aspects of their lives. Their worlds are rocked when one of them unexpectedly takes his own life and this horrific event serves as a wake-up call to the others. As they each deal with their grief, they start making changes in their own lives and truly start living. Along the way, they discover that friends may be the one thing to save them from themselves.

I didn’t watch season one. I’m not a fan of personal drama dramas. Started watching about mid-second season and am enjoying it somewhat, except I need to take notes on who everyone is and what all their interpersonal relationships are. I vote “Don’t Cancel”.
Don’t cancel this show!!! I think about the characters all week and want it to keep going!!!
I LOVE this show!! My husband and I look forward to watching this together every week!
I love it and each week looking forward to the next eposide I think the acting is terrific. Don’t understand why their not getting recognition.
My sister and I are thinking the same thing. We absolutely love the show, the dimensions and cast, however with it being aired so sporadically we are getting extremely frustrated to the point we may not follow it. When it went off the air for the summer, then started back up in September which we were so excited about. Then low and behold before we knew it it was off again till January 23rd. I think the ratings would go up substantially if it aired continually on a weekly basis! I would think the viewers that love the show, and… Read more »
Noticing the negative numbers in January and now in February. A Million Little Things is a phenomenal show, however the problem (in my view) is the breaks that happen between the shows. It was bad enough that it wasn’t aired between late spring until the end of September. Couldn’t wait for it to come back on…and then from November 23rd until February it was off the air again. What is that about! ? This is the type of show that is wonderful viewed on a regular schedule. I am sure the ratings going down yet again is because viewers get… Read more »
That’s a very good point. My wife and I feel the same way about Outlander which we also love. But we go through withdrawal after every finale!
Keep it please!! I’m a big James Roday fan and I think he’s really good in this show!
Love the show
please don’t cancelmit, the characters are compelling. it just needs more time for word of mouth to spread,
Love it keep it going, but please put some humor to lighten it up
DONT CANCEL IT!!! It’s one of the best shows!! So real and heartfelt. Please keep it going!!
Cancel it already please ABC
Cancel it please please
Please cancel it. Season 2 is so boring.
This is a great show and hopefully it will continue and not get cancelled. I was wondering, with the rankings do they count only those that watched it in its time slot or do they count those that DVR, watch it “on demand” or on their computer a day or two after the airing? I work nights so I watch the show when I have free time after its first airing. Its a great show, with some interesting plot lines and characters you can identify with.
A Million Little Things is great!
I absolutely LOVE A Million Little Things. It’s one of the best written shows I’ve seen. The friendships are so moving and it’s always suspenseful wondering what’s going to happen next like who is PJ’s father? Will they tell the kids who the new baby’s real father is, will maggie and gary survive. I SO look forward to this show every week! DO NOT CANCEL IT!!
