What do you think? Which of these ABC TV shows do you enjoy? Will you be watching any of these season or series finales?
I feel The Middle , I enjoy watching. Much more than a lot of other short sit-com shows. I WILL NOT watch Roseann, can not stand her…old show, should not be on again….Station 19 I thought might be ok, but now I am not sure, not much story line except sex… too much like all the other shows out there.
The Middle is a favourite in our house, one of the few that we could watch as a family. I commend the writers and ensemble and everyone involved in creating this series, thank you.
The Middle has been a great show. Never had high ratings, but plugged along. We will miss the Heck’s.
I will miss The Middle. Shows like Roseanne and Station 19 could get permanently cancelled tomorrow and it wouldn’t be too soon.
One of the only shows that ABC has to offer. Sorry to see it go. They need to renew or make a sequel. After Roseanne and American Housewife there is nothing left. Please reconsider
