Why is it that these people of ABC always cancel great shows!?! ABC seriously needs to put some new people in charge. No Ordinary Family was an amazing show!!! Mr. Sunshine shouldn't have been cancelled either! How the heck do they expect to get viewers with poor advertising, changing the times constantly, always changing the days it comes on, and putting it (NOF) up against NCIS and Glee!?!?! ABC is PATHETIC. I forgave them for cancelling FlashForward (another show that should still be on the air), but I refuse to forgive them for cancelling NOF. I will no longer be watching ABC, not even for their NEWS!!! ABC Family has been doing the same lately. They cancelled State of Georgia, Nine Lives of Chloe King, and Kyle XY (I STILL can't get over that one, ESPECIALLY with the huge cliffhanger they left us on). Soon I'm pretty sure they'll be cancelling The Lying Game. I'm getting sick of this network, which is why I've switched to CW and Fox. ABC seriously needs to bring back NOF. If not, then another network should pick it up! Six million views DESERVES another season! AT LEAST one more! Give it a proper ending for crying out loud. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK!?! (The same goes for The Nine Lives of Chloe King. Any network that cancels a show after an ending like THAT is beyond pathic and stupid.)

I can't believe the only ABC program that was decent, Brothers & Sisters, is cancelle! It had interesting plots and family values that always brought them back together. I hope the producers will continue to make additional episodes and find a way to make them available to the interested public. Bye ABC! I won't be watching anything else on your network.

You cant be serious about Brothers and Sisters...I love that show. Please reconsider. Off The Map was just getting good as well. Why take on what has already been done...doomed to fail for sure. Charlie's Angels...you have been there done that...not one actress can replace the originals.

Can't believe Brothers and Sisters was cancelled. We always looked forward to watching this show on Sunday night. Tired of reality shows....need to bring this show back!

I am so very disappointed that the one show that I made a point of watching every episode has been cancelled. It was well written and beautifully acted by an excellent cast. It was in a class by itself. There are so few shows with any emotional truth, or engagingly real people, represented on them. I loved the way this flawed family was portrayed. I am so sad. What is ABC thinking?! You have lost one interested viewer.

haven't heard of the other shows considering i'm in australia we're normally five years behind anyway... brother's and sisters i stopped watching at the end of season 4 when rebecca left... so not really surprised it was axed. maybe now you can bring back Veronica Mars?

Thanks a lot! Been waiting for the new fall season. What are you thinking? One of the best shows on tv - Bring it back!

ABC could have at the very least had one final season of Brothers and Sisters so they could bring the show to a close in a way that fans could have been "satisfied" with instead of just letting the show "dangle" in mid air! I HATE when networks make these decisions with no regard for the fans!

I am very disappointed in ABC for canceling Brothers & Sister's they obviously don't recognize a great show when they see it. I guess i will have no need to watch the ABC network. I'm pissed to the point that I feel like starting a petition to get ABC to re-consider there drastic decision. Who's with me ????
