Yeah, I know it's getting a fifth. But ABC could give it a reduced number of episodes. Like 16. Perhaps even lower. They can sneak around contracts like that. I hope it gets at least 7 seasons. That's enough to wrap up a TV series. It's good too, because it's still got 7/8 of it's original cast, with only two new additions. One of which has been around since season 2.


Private Practice will be fine its in the steady 7 million which ABC loves but if it falls to 6 million then we should worry but as long as it stays above 7 it will be fine.


private practice is coming back next year but I`m still worried


I'm worried for Private Practice. I do hope the ratings go up. :D
