    Kind of sad but absolutely no surprise. The Kabbala stuff is fun, but it never got an audience.

    not fair!

    It sucks that it had such terrible ratings. It really was a good, intelligent show. Oh well.

  • Pavelsauce

    Oh my god, what a shocker!

    I certainly won’t miss the show. The only episode I saw was the 2nd season premiere.

  • David Howell

    At least Fox are no longer batting .000 for successful dramas this decade thanks to The Following.

    Touch should never have been renewed.

  • craiguk

    Apparently Kring(e) has joined the writing staff on The Following, a Fox spokeman said “We’ve not managed to have a genuine success in Drama on Fox last for more then 2 seasons, so this is just a continuation of that business model”

  • John

    Well, this adds fuel to the new season of 24 fire! Bring back Jack!!

  • harvey

    well atleast i found out before i got into the second season 2, if the season 2 has a cliffhanger i wont watch it

  • mmogaddict

    Season 1 was great. It had a nice feel good vibe to it. Season 2 went in completely different direction and hence it was abandoned by the viewers.

  • Cerebro

    The final verdict on “Touch” was, pretty much, a forgone conclusion. I can’t help but feel, a little, disappointed, though. I was indifferent on Season 1. I thought Season 2 was a huge improvement. The storyline was, much more, tightly focused and moving at a brisker pace. Sadly, the audience lost interest. Getting dumped to Friday didn’t do it any favors, either. I can only hope tonight’s finale doesn’t end on any sort of cliffhanger. That would just suck.

  • UKTVFan

    Deadline is reporting that Fox is eyeing a return of 24 as a “limited series,” most likely 12 episodes! Sounds good to me – each episode covers 2 hours, and by not having to make 24 episodes per season, less filler (in theory).

  • ToXiX


    Aw don’t u go saying things you don’t mean because Bobs burgers is way better than Touch

  • Hisoka Oni

    That’s Shame :/
    I think he has more information for us like followers (that’s awesome), and the second season is more better than the first …

  • Mary Ann Kraner

    I enjoyed “Touch” while it was on, but I’m not sure there was more to be done or said in the series. It had a good run, but I think ending it now was a good thing. I love Kieffer Sutherland, so I hope he’ll do another series soon, but I can’t say I’m sorry that ‘touch’ has been canceled.

  • Gigi

    I am soooo sad Touch is being cancelled!
    This is a great show. So many shows are being hurt because I think everyone does what I do, I DVR them! So if only two millions viewed it on the time slot aired, are they taking into consideration all those people who watch it on a later time with no no no commercials?

  • Pat

    I just wish it had an ending.

  • DeeDee

    I think that sucks! It is one of the best shows on TV and there is plenty of junk on there. Oh well I guess I won’t be tuning into anything on FOX next season…………This is a great show and has a huge message!

  • Madman

    You have to be kidding me!
    A show that I can actually watch with my children,that we enjoy. Where do they get these ratings from. I have never been asked what I watch,and no one that I know has ever been asked what they watch. Well at least they finally found the only crappy show that that was dragging the network down, shew!
    I guess the idiots do not watch their own shows,there are at least a dozen other shows that need to be axed before I would get rid of Touch.

  • Pam

    I actually liked the show. However, they postponed the new season from the normal September/October time to February which I’m sure didin’t help. A pity, much better than those stupid reality shows about people who can’t find a date or manage their households. I mean really!!! At least Touch had some substance despite the slow storyline.
