    Boo to NBC for canceling Harry’s Law and The Firm. Maybe you need to take a second look at some of YOUR favorites, Community, Parks and Recreation and Fashion Star, really. Maybe the east coast and people from up North likes this stuff, but not everyone thinks this is worth watching.
    I would change my whole schedule to make sure I got home to catch both shows.

  • Robert S

    Shows that should stay: GCB, Unforgettable, Alcatraz, The Finder, Terra Nova, Awake, The Firm, Prime Suspect.

    Shows that should be cancelled: Once Upon A Time.

    Fox brings out good, new shows and never gives them a real chance. If they are renewing Touch then Alcatraz, Finder and Terra Nova deserve another year. GCB, Awake, The Firm and Prime Suspect never got a real chance. They either were in a bad time slot or moved around too much. Maybe The Firm and Awake were intended as one season shows only?

    I may boycott all new shows this year. If they survive for 2nd season I can catch up online. I am tired of investing my time in good shows that are pulled mid season or leave us with a cliffhanger episode and no 2nd season.

  • Naomi Hill

    20 of my shows are cancelled! ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS!!! These are good shows! The secret circle is awesome, you can hardly leave the screen when it is on… The finder, AWESOME… The firm, awake, I can just go on and on…. this is just incredible.. why even have cable if you are just going to get into a show and have it cancelled… why? I wonder what these people would do if we as consumers just STOPPED watching all together and simply went to streaming on netflix and redbox and movie watching… wonder where their “ratings would go then… freaking ridiculous…

  • EdieB

    I’m so tired of the CW canceling all of my favorite shows every year that i have vowed to finish watching anything that remains that may possibly be left, BUT – I will never watch another pilot for a series on their network. They normally always leave you hanging at a season ending that makes you wonder what happened next??? One would think they could at least write the final episode to give a little closure. Good luck CW, I will not be 1 of the 1.3million+ viewers that never miss an episode, just to find out you’ve dumped one (in this case & last yr many series)! I’m done!!

  • Marie

    Are you all out of your minds at ABC, NBC and CBS?
    We finally get some quality tv shows on the air this year and
    with good quality writers and then I see Harry’s Law cancelled.
    Not all of us tv viewers are air heads that only want to watch all these reality shows with people who want to argue, fight and belittle one another.
    CSI Miami was one of the most decent shows out of all the crime drama shows and it’s been cancelled. I have to say, it has been on for 10 years but it showed details about how the evidence was processed…more learning about those areas than all blood, guts and gore. Guess we have to settle for bubblegum for the brain shows like 30Rock and The Office…geeez! I’d rather have no TV!!

  • ivan

    totally agree with you Debi. no way Harry’s Law, the Firm,
    Ringer , Awake and the Gifted man should have been cancelled
    Its so frigen frustrating when you watch a great show for the whole season and then you find out it wont be back next season when you are expecting it to return! , cuz its so good.
    Exactly Robert, im thinking the same thing, wait for season 2 b4 watching a good show.
    Should cancel bachelor and its bitch counterpart, these are such
    stupid shows, watching these shows kills your braincells.

  • Heather

    Okay I’m really upset that the cancelled secret circle and ringer excepisally since they ended the series with no concrete answers on anything like on the secret circle cassiy and Adam should have ended up together like in the books and at the end it showed blackwells everywhere there where just so many lose ends and I enjoyed that show very much then on ring the two sister just found each other and nobody really nows who that baby’s daddy really is or if anything was resolved between anyone ugh!!!!!! It just frustrates me to no end they should just renew it for like 12 more episodes so they can both have a solid freaking that makes sense:(:(:(:(:(

  • Zoe

    OMG! screw you cbs!
    you cannot cancel unforgettable, with the ending of season 1! ahhhhhhhh
