  • Renee

    Why was The Firm cancelled? That breaks my heart! I loved that show and more than likely it’s because they moved it to Saturday nights!!!!!

  • Susan

    It’s not that NBC can’t create good shows, it’s that they keep the crappy ones (Yes, I’m talking about you, Whitney) and cancel the good ones. Prime Suspect, are you kidding me? That show was great. I still watch the TIVO’d episodes I kept. And Harry’s Law? They should be so lucky to get another actress as good as Kathy Bates. I’m a former TV producer and it makes me lose faith.

  • sara

    i was shock when i heard that the secret circle was cancelled i know alot of people love that show and i do to an the secret circle was a good series you soooo need to renew it and the firm should be renewed or some other network should at lease take over it was really good i want to know more of these shows and i an sooooooooo glade that the vampire diaries and supernantural is renewed

  • Shirley

    so far six of the shows we like to watch are cancelled. I really am tired of starting to watch shows and then they end up being cancelled. I guess reality shows is all the networks want. I really am not interested in them. I like the shows without the smutt and racey parts. I guess they are just too hard to find anymore. Canceling my tv service, whats the point in having it. Augh

  • angelica

    I just have a quick question if anybody would mind answering… What ever hapend to switched at birth???

  • Joy

    So sorry unforgettable cancelled. Just starting to get real interesting

  • deborah

    NBC you suck!!! bring back harry’s law, that was a great show. how dare you cancel it because it has “older viewers” … discrimination!!!! #a30yroldviewer

  • ivan

    Great shows that should NOT have been canceled:

    a gifted man
    the firm
    harry’ law

    good shows that were canceled:


  • ivan

    very sad to see these shows canceled ( see above post )
    add Missing to the list

    you get into these shows, start enjoying them, looking forward to more…
    and then these bigwig idiots cancel these shows that should stay on.

    Happy to see these shows renewed:

    the good wife
    the mentalist
    shark tank

  • Brandon

    The CW has yet to release a statement confirming or denying that The L.A. Complex is still cancelled or renewed yet. Do you have a source that says else wise?

  • Barbara

    My husband and I love Harry’s Law. We are very disappointed that the show was cancelled. Please reconsider NBC!!!!!!!

  • ivan

    Im with you Barbara, very upset to see Harry’s Law cancelled
    that would be a shock if NBC reconsidered

  • Karen

    Harry’s Law is cancelled? Really? We loved the eclectic group of attorney’s and clients. Guess being over 29 doesn’t work any more. We will really miss this show

  • the Secret Circle

    NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! T IS cancelled ): ): BOOOOO!!!

  • the Secret Circle

    NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! The Secret Circle IS cancelled ): ): BOOOOO!!!

  • Nick

    The CW has officially announced that The LA Complex will air season 2 starting in July. Since it is a Canadian import, Season 3 is unavailable, not having aired yet. This is why it is labeled as yellow for “undecided”. It was renewed, but doesn’t air during the broadcast season. So should it be labeled as canceled or renewed?

  • Dee

    The only reason we watch NBC is for our local news and for AWAKE. I agree with you, Mike. We’re done with you, NBC.

  • Ruth Claessens

    LOVED Missing. So disappointed it appears to have been canceled. Any chance it could return? It was brilliant in ever way possible.

  • cannuck

    Greatest crime of the season is the cancelling of Harry’s Law. A well written, well acted smart and sensitive show. Yet both dreadful NCIS shows and empty headed pap such as 2 1/2 men remained not only untouched by celebrated. I give up. Every different unusual show disappears and we’re left with borning and predictable…again. Blech! I’m blowin up my TV.

  • Carmen Burnett

    Why in the world would they cancel “Harry’s Law” when it is such a wonderful show? David Kelley is an excellent writer.
