    I am not happy about the following shows being cancelled. Terra Nova, Missing, Gifted Man, Secret Circle, Ringer. Why?????????? oh and the FIRM. Best new show ever.!!!!

  • Aspen

    NOOO!! the river and ringer is cancelled???? whyyy! ABC always does this! they leave you wanting more on the edge of your seat and take it away! this is bs. a huge pile of bs. I’m also very upset about are you there chelsea and especially GCB! GCB was hilarious! I’m sad :( you suck ABC. and nbc. sigh.

  • sara

    I’m so sad GCB got cancelled! Tis bullshart if you ask me!

  • Brian D

    BOOOOOO Fox for canceling Finder. I think the writing needed to get deeper into the personal histories. The finale was awesome.

  • sorbado

    Two really great shows with something positive to give the public and you idiots cancel them . A gifted man was a great uplifting program one of few that are on anymore. It was a refreshing program and Unforgettable was also a great show something different show that comes from another point of view. Now just blood and guts and everything the political climate will push you to put on . You guys are a bunch of wimps. Stand up and do something individual instead of what the politics of the nation want you to put on . I am sorely disappointed!!!

  • Vanessa

    I’m glad scandal, fringe and person of interest was renewed. Those are my favorites. I wish that awake was given another chance. I found that it was quiet intersting. I guess maybe it was too hard to follow?

  • Heather

    Damn it why did they cancel ringer they always do that the cancel show at a clif hanger only to put on really really stupid shows to replace them

  • Terry

    I watch almost everything. I am a couch potato because of a back injury. Alcatraz, The Finder, The Firm, Unforgettable, and Harry’s Law should not have been cancelled. Alcatraz was an amazing show, that 1 has me the most let down. It was so interesting and had so much more to show us. Bestnew shows IMO are Grimm, Person Of Interest, Once upon A Time, Scandal, and Revenge. I did like Awake and Missing but I think these shows would have gotten tiring with the storyline. How many times could she keep just missing finding her son. They could have just made it where she rejoins the CIA after finding her son and take the show that way but the name of the show wouldn’t fit anymore. I will truly miss House and Desperate Housewives and kinda miss CSI Miami. Let’s just hope they have some good shows replacing some of our favs. Terra Nova was another I just remembered about. That was pretty good also, would have liked to see that 1 get another season.

  • Phil

    I actually liked The River on ABC. I dont know why everyone hated it. Glad to see “New Girl” and “Parks and Rec” got renewed though

  • Denise

    Wow I really liked Unforgettable…bummed. Terra Nova was good too. never can understand that some of the most interesting shows get cancelled. Awake kept my interest as well. Still missing ‘Lie to me’. Awe well it gives me more free time away from the TV and all those commercials.

  • Abdullah

    The secret circle & Awake were very enjoyable and had high ratings, unlike other shows that are renewed. lets hope another network picks them up and renews them !

  • Tonya T.

    I cannot believe Awake, The Firm, & Alcatraz have all been cancelled!!! What the H***?! Those were some of my favorite shows! If you want to cancel some shows then try Two and a Half Men or some of those shows that are all about sex and really don’t have a story line! I thought the TV shows were getting back on track…getting away from all the reality shows, sitcoms that were based on sex or someone’s sexuality. I mean REALLY…come on bring back the shows that have excitement and or a nice family sitcom. One that your not embarrased to sit and watch with your children…something with a story line to it! STOP CANCELLING ALL THE GOOD TV SHOWS!!!

  • Dwill67

    AWAKE is cancelled! So sad! One of my fav shows this past season! Who makes these decisions anyways!? BAD CALL NBC!

  • KatieBug

    Please renew ‘The Missing’ I LOVE that show!!!!

  • Bob

    Harry’s Law shouldn’t have been cancelled just because 18 to 39 yr olds weren’t watching. The show had an exceptional cast that was really starting to gel together. I’ll miss the show.

  • Bekah

    I totally agree with Tonya! I LOVED the FIRM!! Please leave the decent shows with the good stories and cut some of the trash!!

  • Andy

    Cancelled to many great shows and keep some lame ones

  • Will

    Sci-Fi on the major networks never seem to workout, I liked the River and Terra Nova…dont know why They bother bringing these shows on Ill just stick with cable

  • Gail

    Harry’s Law? No more Kathy Bates? How sad. Good writing, actors, plots, dialogue. This show addressed current issues and concerns across a wide spectrum of society. Guess the “powers that be” prefer the audience (and voters) to be mindless and uniformed. We are disappointed in and disgusted with NBC.

  • Ali

    I can’t believe these barbaric idiots cancelled the following amazing shows:

    A Gifted Man
    Prime Suspect

    and GCB and Pan Am which were always a fun watch.

    Leave it the networks to hook you and then leave you jonesing. :(
