    @ Michael

    I don’t know why you and your mom were so confused, the story really isn’t that complicated.

  • danny94

    dont think gcb will get renewed abc arent in the business of saving shows in the 1.0’s

  • AO

    John A asked, “How does it skew that old?”

    An abundance of Americans in the 50+ demo.

  • rob60990

    When your lead actress is in her 60s, your show is going to skew old.

  • Chris

    @Michael So you can understand REVENGE but not ONCE? If you started watching if in the middle of the season you will be a little confused. It is easy to understand though. The kid is simply Emma’s son. That is it for now.

    rob, did you ever hear of “the golden girls”…lol

    It’d be so unfair if GCB gets cancelled. It has held up better than any drama ABC has premiered the past 3 years.

    Aside from Revenge, One Upon A Time, and Scandal, of course.

    It’s just bad luck that it premeired in a year where ABC has had 3 drama hits and no need for a face-saving renewal they’ve come famous of.

    On the other hand, ABC was lucky this year.

    Renew GCB and claim 4 drama hits in your beloved PRs :D

    Besides, with DH ending, Body of Proof and Private Practice close to cancelleation, they’ll have some holes to fill.

    Get real. Look at the ratings GCB got when they played in the DH slot a couple weeks ago. Disastrous! GCB is dead, dead dead. There’s no way that ABC will renew it.

  • SarahL

    Wow, Harry’s Law keeps sinking to the bottom.

  • Juan

    Sad for GCB, it was really funny and too bad it was adjusted down. Also too bad that Desperate Housewives wasn’t adjusted up and be steady with the past few episdoes. I wish it would go with a bang. Finally good for OUAT, its so great

  • Bee

    darn it GCB! :( it’s still on the bubble. but annoyingly, every tenth counts for them. ABC should be bringing back GCB, PP, and scandal all for 13 episode seasons and then extend them based on fall performances. PP is for obvious reasons. scandal and GCB got the bad luck of starting in a particularly horrible spring. both have good buzz and reception and cancelling them without giving them a chance to build on that hype into the fall would be a mistake.

  • OMG

    I think, sadly GCB might be cancelled. I guess it was fun while it lasted. It is just a fun way to enjoy watching television. It does not take itself too seriously, and definitely has room to grow. However, given the relative rookie success season for ABC, it will be lost in the shuffle. Add in some rather promising pilots, it is not looking good. ABC definitely has the potential to achieve more than a 2.0 rating in 10pm shows.

  • Bee

    Renew GCB and claim 4 drama hits in your beloved PRs :D


  • Brian

    C’mon ABC, renew OUAT, Revenge, GCB, and Scandal :)

  • Bob

    Dang it GCB. Well it was really good at the beginning. Sunday night’s episode was a bit boring so I can understand it going down some. I hope it survives. Harry’s Law….UGH!!!!

  • Jack

    NYC22 good bye!

  • Dillan

    Oh GCB :(

  • rob60990

    “did you ever hear of “the golden girls””

    I actually did think of that before making my comment but I have no clue how it did in the demo back then.

  • sarah;roger long

    gcb its great! please bring it back.

  • Networkman

    ABC has some great pilots in the work. I find their pilots more promising and interesting than the other networks. Once Upon a Time is a hit. It helps lead off the night perfectly. And imo, is doing some damage to CBS’s The Amazing Race. ABC has to find the most worthy show to follow it after Desperate Housewives ends. And that is not GCB. I would love to see how Revenge would fare after OUAT.
