ABC brought the axe down on a number of shows today, some new, others that were more established and popular. The six casualties were:

  • V Season Finale Scene
  • Zach on Off the Map

The network also announced official pick-ups for 12 new shows. They include Charlie's Angels and a new comedy from Tim Allen.

Off the Map was a really good show! ABC might have had more viewers if they put it on an hour earlier. I agree with the comment about giving the rights to another station. Someone should pick it up. At the very least ABC should do a windup show to finish up the "cliffhanger" story line. With all the junk on television these days it is a shame that this program is gone!

Canceling Brothers and Sisters just means that ABC does not have a clue as to what good television is all about. All of these reality shows just teach our teens and younger children to scheme and lie. Don't they do that enough? I love cooking shows but not so many of them. The Bachelor et al just gives the message that you can pretend to fall in love just to get money. Come on...think about the audience not that reality shows are cheaper to produce.

So sorry to see Brothers & Sisters go off the air with no closure. ABC obviously has no respect for their audience. Sick of realty and food shows!

Please, please, please ABC, reconsider cancelling Brothers and Sisters. That is better than Desperate House Wives.

NO, NO, NO...I've been waiting all summer for Brothers & Sisters new season. There's so much crap on tv...reality shows, that idiotic Bachelor and Bachelorette, the sexist, cheap sex jokes Two and a Half men. So bored with screaming chefs, obnoxious zillionaires passing judgement on entrepreneurs, and so on. I want B&S back...right now.

Why would Brothers and Sisters be cancelled? One of the best shows on TV. I looked forward to Sunday evenings just to watch it. And so many story lines will never be finished....

Very sad that they canceled Off the Map. That was my television time. Also No Ordinary Family. Both were great to watch. ABC should just be taken off the air. Take the crap away and bring back the good stuff.
