    good… :)

  • Brad

    A no brainer.

    Why would CBS axe something that is terrible, but continues to print money for themselves?

  • Ryan Schwartz

    Let the Ashton sucks and bring Sheen back comments begin!

    Personally, I’m glad it has been renewed.

  • Charlie

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! This Sucks! Just Like Ashton Kutcher you wonder why the last season That 70s Show had less of him because he’s not a verry good actor!

  • morningtvwatcher

    Despite what some peoples say, it is still a solid show. Ashton is doing a good Job, I have been enjoying this season. this season has actually got better as it went on and has improved since September of 2011 and It is still doing good in the ratings for CBS(Still one of their Highest rated Shows and one of The Highest rated on Monday) so I am not surprise at all that it was renewed!

  • Guy

    Just end it already. The show is the worst show on television

  • SherLOCKED (The Mighty Cringe)

    2BG has taken over the Monday Night and BBT is the number one comedy on the network….TAAHM is down hill from here.

  • AlcoholicsAnonymous

    Ashton is doing a good job on the show. It’s the writers that are destroying the ‘Alan’ & ‘Jake’ characters. They used to be funny, now they’re just pain in the a$$es.

  • Zach

    @Charlie. The last season of That 70’s show only had Ashton Kutcher in four episodes because he wanted to leave but he agreed to be in the first few so they could write off his character.

  • chris

    It is kind of amazing that this show continues to march on with no end in sight. I’ve actually enjoyed this season, but from comments I read, most don’t, yet it still rakes in the viewers.

  • neJANIS

    Show is plain awful now, but it has nothing to do with Ashton or Charlie’s departure. Writers destroyed this show a while ago.

  • morningtvwatcher

    @Charlie The last Season of That 70s Show was not very good without Ashton and Topher and I never understood why it continued on for a 8th Season without them. It’s should have ended after the 7th.

  • Will

    I’m still confused. When was this ever a good show?

    Arguing whether it’s worse than it used to be is pointless – it was ALWAYS bad.

  • #1MentalistFan

    It was about time.

  • ToXiX

    About time seeing it official

    Season 10 will be much better I’m sure. I just hope they don’t ruin the finale.

  • SJ84

    worst show ever (and that since season 1)

  • Dave

    Happy days, not as good without Charlie Sheen but still better than most comedies on tv.

  • RG-X

    All vomit all the time – it’s the same puke they’ve been airing since it first came on. Vomit, re-vomit and more vomit.

  • Hustis Harper

    Even though I can’t stand it, I think it’s good that dumb people have a show they can enjoy.
