Friday saw the cancellation of several shows on ABC and NBC, following Tuesday's string of Fox shows which got the TV equivalent of a pink slip.
One "on the bubble" show, "Brothers and Sisters," starring Calista Flockhart and Sally Field, was denied a sixth season, while many of the rest were shows that had started since this past fall.
For example, one of the highest profile new series of the season, NBC's "The Event," was also canceled.
However, show creator Nick Wauters tweeted that this wasn't necessarily the end: "Alas #theevent will not be back on NBC next season but we r actively pursuing other avenues to keep the show alive. Stay tuned for more info!"
The Peacock also canceled the third of its three new Thursday night comedies this season ("Perfect Couples" was pulled off the schedule to make room for "The Paul Reiser Show," which was canceled two episodes in). "Outsourced" was dumped by the network the day after its final episode aired.
In the meantime, Entertainment Weekly reported that "Law & Order: Los Angeles," the replacement for the original "Law & Order," would not survive to season 2, while ABC canceled the high profile comedy "Mr. Sunshine" one day after its star, Matthew Perry, announced that he would be returning to rehab.
ABC wasn't done there. Other shows that will not be returning are the reboot of "V," cop show "Detroit 1-8-7," medical drama "Off the Map," family superhero dramedy "No Ordinary Family" and traditional sitcom "Better With You."
"Family" star Michael Chiklis tweeted, "Many thanks to the fans of #NOF around the world and to the cast, crew and writers. I had a lot of fun."
Joanna Garcia, a vet of "Reba" and "Privileged," wrote about "Better With You," confirming the bad news on Twitter: "I'm so thankful 4 all of ur love & support...SO blessed 2 have such amazing fans!"
It wasn't all bad news on Friday. Aside from "Chuck," NBC picked up "Parenthood" for a third season, while midseason series "Body of Proof" and "Happy Endings" will get a second season on ABC, along with a third for "Shark Tank."
The official Twitter for the writers of "Happy Endings," so far the only one of the four new relationship comedies to get picked up, tweeted the "officially official" news to fans: "We don't know when we'll back. We don't know our order. We don't know who killed Rosie Larsen. All we know is how much we don't know."
In the meantime, CBS and the CW still have a lot to announce, and all of the broadcast networks will be making their fall schedules "officially official" next week, so stay tuned to find out more in the coming days. In the meantime, were you a fan of any of the canceled or renewed shows? Post your thoughts below.
Bring back my favorite show. I loved Brothers and Sisters. Why would you cancel it?

"Brothers and Sisters" was a wonderful show that really made me deeply think about my life, family, friends, work, and love. I feel a lot of shows these days can't bring you to that part of yourself and I appreciate the writers and actors who made this wonderful family come alive. I am so bummed that I just watched the final episode on Soapnet! The thoughts and lessons I take away from this show, however, will always be there! THANK YOU BROTHERS AND SISTERS!! And to any of the actors, writers, and creators of the wonderful show who may some day read this, THANK YOU for impacting me!!
Such good acting, such good drama. With all the vacuous programs being aired, that one was one of substance. So sorry to see it go.
Regarding Brothers and Sisters: I just viewed several reruns of Brothers and Sisters and now I am kicking myself for not having watched the show when it was originally aired. I have looked thru my TV menu to find a few more programs will be showing this week. So that makes me feel a little better. I was so surprised to see it started in 2006 and went half way thru 2011. My God where have I been. Why would they take this show off the air? It is the best thing I have seen since ever ! Now I am going to have to go out and purchase it on DVD. I hate to do that when I spend so much money on a certain TV service that should show all the reruns. I should just be able to choose a program and the year it started. That is not to much to ask for!
I loved as much as you will obtain performed proper here. The comic strip is attractive, your authored subject matter stylish. however, you command get got an nervousness over that you wish be handing over the following. in poor health without a doubt come more previously once more since precisely the similar just about very frequently within case you defend this increase.
I beloved up to you'll receive carried out right here. The caricature is tasteful, your authored material stylish. however, you command get got an shakiness over that you want be delivering the following. ill undoubtedly come more earlier again since precisely the same nearly very regularly within case you shield this increase.
It's appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it's time to be happy. I've learn this post and if I may just I desire to suggest you few fascinating issues or suggestions. Maybe you could write next articles regarding this article. I desire to learn even more things about it!
I can't believe this show was cancelled! I've been watching reruns on soap net these past weeks catching up on the very first episodes that I had missed in the begiining not realizing the show had been cancelled. I really enjoyed the story lines. So disappointed about the cancellation of this fine show and the disappointment of ABC and other networks that give us these really lame shows such as "once upon a time" in place of "Brothers and Sisters". What were the big shots thinking? Huge shame!
I can't believe Brothers and Sisters was cancelled! ABC exects what's wrong with you guys? This show was so much better than 95% of the shows on tv right now. Bring it back!!! Take a public poll!! REALLY???
I understand that "All Good Things Must End", but Brothers and Sisters was a GREAT thing. The acting, the story-line, and the humor were incredible. What were you thinking to cancel it?
oh my Goodness.... in my opinion the people that are making decisions about what we watch must be blind, old men. The characters, the acting, the story line, etc., everything about "Brothers and Sister's" showed quality. Please run everything again, just for me, please !. I need to see if Calista Flockhart goes out with her co-host anymore. I mean I saw an episode where he came and assisted her with baby sitting. oh my, he tried so hard to get the girl. I have to see if she continues to stay away or gets her fiance back. I have to see how the Mistress's daughter gets her 5 million dollar trust fund. Where does the money come from?????? If that cheating Father hide money for her and her mother I will just die. But on the other hand he should. Oh this show definitely gives one the push, pull when it comes to morality, revenge, stepping over the line..... I could just scream.
I am very disapointed but not surprised that the best acted casted and written family drama that ever was is canceled. brothers and sisters costs plenty but you get what u pay for. should have moved it to nine pm .
i'm an afican and when watched keeping up with the kardiashians i thought to myself 'i hope every american family isn't like this' and i saw brothers and sisters and i'm like 'thank God !!'.
my point is that brothers and sisters actually portayed some good things to non- americans and the fact that it was so well directed and acted is a plus...
so i sincerly appeal to abc not to break my heart and by taking away my fanasty family and please reconsider their decision
I can't believe the networks lately! Canceling Brothers & Sisters, Hawthorne, and Better Off Than You, and this being the last season for Desparate Housewives and One Tree Hill. ABC what is wrong with you? Not to mention no more Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I can't believe we will no longer hear ' MOVE THAT BUS', unless we watch a repeat. PLEASE , PLEASE bring back Brothers & Sisters. It as well as Desparate Housewives had the BEST cast, of the most talented actors and actresses.
I'm sodisappointed that Brothers & Sisters was cancelled that was one of my favorite shows. It's always the great shows that end up getting cancelled. PLEASE PUT THE SHOW BACK ON!!!!!!
Brothers and Sisters is a great show and there aren't that many on TV anymore. Please bring it back. No more reality shows,PLEASE!
I'm so disappointed that this show has been cancelled, I loved this show and can't believe ABC would do this, it was one of the best shows on TV and great actors. Please please someone bring it back
What is wrong with ABC and what is their reasoning for cancelling Brothers and Sisters??? I love, love, love this show. The cast is amazing and the story lines are always interesting. I've been watching since day one. I am also disappointed that Desperate Housewives is ending! This is just wrong!!
Please bring Brothers and Sisters back Im having withdrawels.
I am addicted to Brothers and Sisters and cannot believe that it has been cancelled, especially when TV continues to have crap on every station every night. This show was about family and life's trials that each of us can connect to on some level. the cast was amazing and the best combination of actors of any show on TV. Each was amazing in their roles. Yet, the stations continue to broadcast reality garbage that is meaningless and a waste of time to watch. There is no longer anything decent on TV and I question who these shows appeal to anyway. Get a life!!!!
The mere fact that a GREAT show like " Brothers and Sisters " being taken off the air shows you what television has become. We were VERY surprised when it went on to begin with. Most of the shows these days are stupid shows with absolutely NO substance. As soon as a show goes on the air that has substance and lets the public empathize with the characters, off it goes, only to be replaced with shows geared to people with IQs of 30.
Some of the characters in this series are world famous.
The networks can't keep a show on the air that makes people think. They need to put on shows to sleep by.
you got it right ! It's about inteligence. T.V. shows are competing for that almightly ADVERTISING dollar to stay alive. Just as all of us hard working Americans are doing. Only we are going to our average jobs each day chasing the same almightly dollar. It is so unfortunate that T.V. programming is a snap shot of what the AVERAGE viewer is interested in. AKA, it is a snapshot of what the MAJORITY of viewers can mentally comprehend. Even though there are a few intelligent viewers out there, it's just not enough to keep the good programming on. If we as consumers are sad about having to watch less than average programs; think how the writers of these shows feel when they have to dumb down their writing, just to make a living. It almost makes me feel sorry for them. But I am sure they are making alot more money than me, so I'll just continue to chase that almight dollar too and catch the reruns or purchase the dvd; if they have them? HEY STAY SMART.
I'm developing a site site and I was thinking of changing the template.Yours looks pretty nice! You could visit my site and tell me your viewpoint!
So off the map and brothers and sisters has to go....for what ??? More kardashian crap about their lives ?// Who gives a %^&* about them! Any more reality shows and I'm gonna turn in my cable subscription! Leave the good shows alone and bring back Brothers & Sisters...I need somehting intelligent to watch!!
what the heck!! I guess you can't be sustained if your not a stupid show about the Kardashians!!
I am very disappointed with this decision and don't not understand why this was concelled.
why did brothers and sisters get canceled it was awesome jerks i hate you
PLEASE DO NOT CANSEL Brothers & Siters it is one of the best TV shows on air...
I don't understand the way networks think! Now we get an atrocious show – Pan Am – in placed of our beloved Brothers and Sisters. Stupid v. intelligent. Dumb v. thought-provoking. Should be canceled v. should be brought back! Guess what will win? Not the good guys. Dumb and stupid seems to win the day everyday. Yuck to ABC!
Sorry to hear the show was cancelled .. It was a show that made Sunday nights something to look forward to .. Pan Am is of no interest to me ...Now I have to play solitaire ..
I've watched the entire series from 1-109 on net flix to understand why it was really cancelled as a series. Still no answer. Please bring this show back! or at least shows like this back to TV . or better yet bring the group back and a movie movie would be nice! fans........ are longing!!!!
THIS SUCKS!!!!!!! Every show I watch on ABC gets cancelled. I have watched Brothers & Sisters since it started and was waiting for it again and just found out it was cancelled. I have also watched V and Detroit 1-8-7. Very disappointed. I will not watch ABC again. I will watch all of the shows on-line or not at all.
Why....why....why???....would you cancel show like brother's and sisters? It was a great watch for us our family every Sunday and to replace it's spot with Pan AM is really a terrible decision! WHY? I no longer watch ABC on Sunday evening. We now watch cableor other channels instead. ABC used to be our ost watche channel. Our opinion.....terrible decision.
It is crazy that they cancelled brothers and sisters! I loved that show! I also loved off the map! This is ridiculous, sometimes I even wonder why I have cable. These networks have no common sense when it comes to a good show. If they want to lose business, I guess it's their problem! Get the hint, "brothers and sisters" was a very popular show! So was " off the map."!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love, love, love Brothers and Sisters and have been waiting for it to return ...Take off some of the garbage shows like "Housewives of Podunk Holler" and keep the quality shows on for viewers like us who are educated and don't want to be part of the Botox Broad insanity that's on TV now.
It's not too often that I enjoy watching t.v shows nowadays,But when I discoverd there was actually a show with such an awesome cast and storyline,A show with never a dull moment that had great script ,dialouge,humor ,real life situations with just enough tasteful sensual moments but not enough to be embarassed by ,I was hooked,and still am to the re-runs on sunday nights ..I even got my 19 yr old daughter hooked .Its a show for both generations to enjoy,
I just got ito this series ad i love it why are they canceling it? how can they do this to us, i sure hope maybe Lifetime picks it up like Army wives that would be great i was waiting for B&S to come back the i see this boo hooo
I am just now finding out that Brothers & Sisters has been cancelled. I can not tell you how dissapointed I am that this show is no longer on the air. It was a cast full of wonderful actress & actors. I spent many nights watching this show & crying my eyes out. It brought out every emotion I had & was definately a show that I could relate too. We cancelled our TV a year & a half ago & I still managed to watch this show every week online. After Desperate Housewives ends there will me nothing left on ABC to watch. ABC if you take a minute to read all the comments on here you would learn how great of a show you had. Maybe if you would have put it in a prime time hour it would have better ratings. I have friends that don't stay up late enough to watch the 10:00 shows but I recommended this show to them & they LOVED it just as much as I did. They have been renting the back seasons to get caught up. :) Anyway's I'm done ranting I'm just so dissapointed that is was cancelled!
I can not believe they cancelled Brothers and Sisters!!! With all the junk on TV anymore and not to mention way too much reality garbage, they remove a decent, enjoyable series! Well, now that ABC is ending Desperate Housewives at the end of the season, it's time to find a new network for Sunday nights. Stupid move ABC!!!
Why was something so good cancelled but shows like Big Brother and Survivor and all the other stupid reality shows still on the air? Poor leadership for ABC if you ask me. Let me run the place. You'd see more drama shows like this and less reality television. No one cares about reality tv anymore. Put stuff like this on that keeps people watching. that reality crap is all rigged anyway.
Shame on you ABC for cancelling Brothers and Sisters! Many people can relate to family drama that goes on in daily life and its not another reality show! Some one mention in their post "no ratings"! Who the heck are they asking??? NOT ME or obviously any of the other people that are just as disappointed as I am. Once Desperate Housewives goes off after this season, I will have no reason to ever watch ABC again. Shame on you!
They didn't ask me and my dad either. we never missed an episode! Poor taste on ABC's part!
It is just wrong to cancel a show that so grounded in American culture.
I am with the hundreds of B&S fans above! What are you thinking ABC? It was one of my favorite shows with a great cast that made you a part of their family. It is was one of the only shows left that I watched on this station- all that is left are comedy sitcoms, medical shows and raunchy reality tv. Yuck!!! Please bring it back !!
I did not even know Brothers and Sister was cancelled until I went to my DVR to see when it would be premiering and saw it was not there. I can't believe I watched this awesome show for all these years and don't even get a final episode. Very, Very disappointed.
I can't even believe that they cancelled this show! I am totally disappointed! Just look at the people that want it back!!! Really ABC??? GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!
Totally disappointed. I just can't believe they would drop Brothers and Sisters. I was never disappointed in that show and it was always interesting to watch. Guess I just don't have good taste in shows; they seem to want to cancel anything that is good.
Wow !!! How can a network(( ABC)) cancell a show like B&S and leave all the stupid crap on ,Its not beacuse of poor rateings as B&S was one of the most watched shows of any network . Well after Desperate Housewifes goes off .so can ABC . I will definately not watch ABC... .ABC had to have hired some off the wall idiots, that doesn't know a great show . read the comments .people liked this show . I hope another network will pick it and put it back on the air
I can't believe Brothers & Sisters has been cancelled. I have been awaiting the new season and just learned of the cancellation. I am so very disappointed. I looked forward to Sunday nights, never missed an episode and made other plans around the program. It was my favorite program and I hope some how, some way I will again look forward to new weekly episodes.
what onb earth are you idiots thinking. i have watched soaps on abc since i was a young child and now you are cancelling them and now you are also cancelling Brothers and Sisters. that is totally stupid.you get rid of the good shows and for these stupid shows that are absolutly crazy. what are you guys doing?this is absoulte nuts and then more. bring back the soaps and Brothers &Sisters please.i beg iof you and so do alot of other people.
I agree!!!! Brothers and Sisters is one of the best shows out there!!!! Get rid of shark tank and all of the stupid reality tv shows!!! Brothers and Sisters is a wonderful show, story-line, and great acting!!!!!!!
Soooooo disappointed that Brothers and Sisters was cancelled. One of the BEST TV drama shows EVER! Great cast, great stories. Really going to miss it. Maybe I need to check out a different network.
so disappointed that Brothers and Sisters is cancelled and Off the Map.... those are some very good shows, i loved everything about them. The world is going to reality tv which sucks!
I am so disappointed that Brothers & Sisters has been taken off the air. I guess if it wasn't for Hawaii Five-O I could delete CBS from my channel list. Moves like this remind me why it is my least favorite network.
I am so disappointed that Brothers & Sisters was cancelled. I looked forward to my hour of Sunday viewing of that show.. I was in shock..I kept saying its not true. PLEASE bring the show back!!
Please do not cancel brothers and sisters!! It was my FAVORITE show!!!!
Brothers & Sisters was the only show i watched on ABC, I loved this show and all the actors,what a sham.I guess now we get all that REALITY TV.How BORING i wont be watching.
what a croc...
why would you canc. brothers and sisters? I am sooooo sick of reality tv because it is not really reality they tape things and put them together in the edit room. changes the whole tone of things. I would like to escape from the real world sometimes and reality tv is not it. I hope that another network picks up brothers and sisters. abc is really screwing up thier lineups both during the day and now at night. they have canc. the soaps that have been on forever. It was really nice to be able to sit down or tape it to watch later and be able to escape what was going on in the real world for a short while. why do we need another talk show? truth we dont, If i wanted someone elses opinion about something I would ask a close friend not these morans they are putting in the place of a soap example: the chew....they have lost me when that show comes on. I usually only watch abc but will have to start looking else where to fill my afternoons.
I guess its good they kept des. housewives or they would have totally lost me...what ever exec. they have hired to redo the format for them. I hope they didnt pay him much cause they are going to need that money to keep the airwaves going. if I wanted to watch another talk show I would changed channels. hope they get what they wanted. I am sure the numbers will be strong for a while cause people will be curious but I think after a while they will get bored. you can only talk about so much if you dont believe me check out the view. look how many hosts have come and went on that show. BORING!!!!!!!!!
It seems that every series I like gets cancelled. Brothers and Sisters was so well done; I loved every character. Why let us get invested in a series and then kill it??????? And it sounds like I'm not the only one bothered. I also followed Off the Map every week. There's not much I will watch any more.
im not going to watch anymore tv series they never give them an ending.....its all about the money .....at least give the shows an ending....only movies for me anymore
Thats the trouble with these networks They get you all involved in a show and then they take it off I cant believe there taking Brothers and Sisters off.
I can't believe that Brothers and Sisters is cancelled. I hope another network is smart enough to pick it up
I am with everyone else on the poor decision to cxl Brothers and Sisters. I never missed it (thanks to DVR). I love the cast and their characters. It's so ridiculous that if a show is good, it's out. If it is ridiculous it stays. Why aren't the executives giving it another chance? Money of course. Our whole world is run by the dollar, and I miss the days where things stayed on because they were GOOOOOOOOD. Oh well, there are worse things going on in the world than cancelled TV shows. We should all count our blessings that we have time to write about, and be upset about such a honestly silly thing. In the scheme of life, we will survive......however, Sunday nights won't be as good without the show. they should reconsider!!
This was my favorite as well. All we have now is crappy reality shows. The programming is horrendous.Goodbye ABC on sundays.
Sorry, I mean flesh and blood and soul.
Don't cancel Brother and Sisters! Even I could not watch it at the prime time. I do ctach it up online all the time. It is the best TV show! How could you cancel a show with so much fresh and blood and soul?
Don't cancel Brother and Sisters! Even I could not watch it at the prime time. I do ctach it up online all the time. It is the best TV show! How could you cancel a show with so much soul and humanity?
One of the only shows I watch very sad you took Brothers and Sisters off. Love the cast and hate you left us without our happy ever after.
One can never work out the powers that be, with so much crap on TV one has to wonder what fool made the decision to scrap one of the best dramas on TV, the great actors and down to earth story lines of Brothers and Sisters will be greatly missed. I looked so forward to each new season. I couldn't agree more a book without and ending once again. Will the powers that be ever truly complete any series without a leaving the viewers high and dry once again.
Very disappointed this show was cancelled. It is my favorite!! Bad decision to cancel!
I will MISS this show , With some of the JUNK on T.V. "Brother & Sisters was a VERY well put together show . So what will be on Sunday night "JUNK" ????????
It's the dumbing down of America. Keep the idiotic reality TV shows with pathetic losers rather than watching the incredible acting and story lines of Brothers and Sisters. Sally FIeld, Calista Flockart, Rachel Griffitths and the rest of that cast of B&S are some of the finest actors around. It seems the networks always cancel the shows that are thought provoking and entertaining (My so called life; Sisters, to name a few). There's not much truly entertaining TV on mainstream network TV any longer.
I will sorely miss Brothers and Sisters. I was shocked to find it cancelled. I have never missed an episode (thanks for DVR) and have always loved the interactions with the families. This was really my favorite show on any of the channels. I wish they would run even a short season with 9 episodes and run through closure on the families if they want to end it. What will we do for a Sunday night family drama that makes us feel good, feel bad, and see the dynamic of a family that struggles but loves each other above all else....
I love Brothers & Sisters. If we are not going to be to watch the show we dvr it. Please Please do not cancel Brothers & Sisters. It is one of our favorite shows.
After so many other favorites got cancelled over the past few years, I looked forward to the Sunday lineup of Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters. That one night was worth watching. My newest favorite was Outsourced, though. The premise was pretty timely and the characters interesting and the plots were wacky. I'll sure miss that one. It was my favorite for a good laugh. I can't think of any shows I'll be watching after this. What a waste of good talent.
Detroit 1-8-7 is the greatest show. I will miss its complex characters and story lines. Body of Proof? blechh!
I loved-loved-loved Detroit 187-One of, if not the best new show-–What nut jobs chose that time slot? That was the biggest problem-I love The God Wife-would tape on and watch the other. PLEASE RE-THINK taking 187 off? Just for a better time slot or better yet let the fans select it...............Faye
no ordinary family was a cool show. I hope another network pick it up.
Can't believe they're cancelling B&S!!!!! This show had such great story lines and such a wonderful cast!
Can't believe they're cancelling B&S!!!!! This show had such great story lines and such a wonderful cast!
Why do they take the good shows off the air? Brothers and Sisters was one of the best shows on and now they are canceling it? Who is in charge? The public wants good shows... not dumb stuff like "Survivor"... ABC needs a new producer apparently. They are not going to have anything worth watching now!
I love Brothers and Sisters too. If I see one more cop show I'm gonna puke.
Unbelievable – ABC probably cancelled Brothers and Sisters because they didn't want to pay good salaries to these great actors and actressess. ABC continually pre-empted the show with award shows etc. I watched B & S online when I missed it. There were only 2 shows worth watching on ABC and now only one what a bunch of fools
Keep Brothers and Sisters on the air it's the only thing I watch on Sundays All the people above who want it to stay can't be wrong, this sucks !!!
Brothers and Sisters is watched by a lot of people here in Puerto Rico.
Great Cast and Good Stories. Please – someone – pick up this show. I miss it already. Diana
I mean, I can't say I'm surprised Brothers and Sisters got the axe. I really loved the show, but the past season was really boring. Shame on the writers? Once Patricia Wettig was removed, and the entire Ojai empire was destroyed...so was the premise of the show. I love what they did with Kevin and Scotty but the show really fell apart the past season. BUT..... don't they all deserve a chance to turn it around? Cancelling Brothers and Sisters really makes me start to hate ABC, and watching all TV all together. I'd almost rather just read a book.
Can't believe they are cancelling Brothers & Sisters....one of my favorite shows! Great cast with great storylines!
Please reconsider! We need other shows besides reality TV.
What is all these cancellations based on? What is wrong with the network execs? Is there no way to object? I work my butt off all day and just want to relax with a show once in a while at night, and the quality shows all get cancelled?
WE LOVE THE EVENT! DO NOT CANCEL!
i am going to miss brothers and sisters so much!they should revoke the cancellation! all the good shows on abc seem to get cancelled.i.e UGLY BETTY!
I will definitely miss Outsourced. Laugh out funny, quirky comedy with a great ensemble cast? Why would they want to give that kind of show a chance when we could watch more crappy reality tv. THPT!
ABC station you are history in our house as of today! We have blocked your station from our TV.
Along with Brother and Sisters our household watched every week the following shows:
Castle, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Body of Proof and Dancing With The Stars.
No more...........Hope other people do the same.
Hope everyone from Brothers and Sisters find jobs soon! I will miss seeing you on Sunday nights?
Brothers & Sisters was a wonderful show & I really enjoyed it since the very first episode. Most of the shows that I've enjoyed & felt were great entertainment have been cancelled. All the garbage lives on for another season.
Great acting, good story lines.........these are always the ones to go. I'm so glad to see other people are just as upset as I am.....
Who makes these decisions & exactly where is their taste?
Waaaay too early to end Brothers and Sisters!! This is one of the best shows on right now – don't understand the thinking here. Oh well, gives yet another reason to cut back on TV.
I looooovvvvedddd Brothers & Sisters too.....can't believe it's done!!! Another network NEEDS to pick this up!!!
I always watched this show – it was wonderful!! Something is fishy regarding ratings. Everyone I know loved it and all those above did also. ABC – wrong move.
Please Don't cancel Brother and Sisters!!!! This is one of the BEST shows on. It's my favorite!!! Let it go another season...We are not ready to say goodbye!!!
Brothers and Sisters is a terrific show. Shame on you ABC
I cannot believe they would take this show off the air, I have watche Brothers and sisters since the first episode and always looked forward to sunday nights, it figures I guess the networks are more concerned about reality T.V. who cares about keeping up with ritch spoiled women, when I watch t.v. I want to be able to relate to a real problem and that is what Brothers and Sisters was a real family with real problems..... And dont get me started on off the map, Im gonna stop watching T.V. all together this way Im never disappointed=(
I am soooooo disappointed about Brothers and Sisters being cancelled. It is the best show ever in along time. I would rank it right up there with Dallas. Every week peeks my interest and keeps me coming back and the cast is amazing. Please don't put a reality show on in its place.......as I will be turning the TV off.
Don't know if it will do any good, but I contacted ABC and told them it was a BIG mistake to cancel Brothers & Sisters, maybe if everyone contacts them, it might help, couldn't hurt
Finally Outsourced is GONE! I loathed that show. Perfect Couples was getting pretty bad. Now if they could only cancel The Office, Thursdays might just get a little bit better. Sorry, but it's just not funny anymore, and neither is Community. gRR!
I love this show and hope it gets another chance. It is so much better than other shows, particularly reality shows.
The characters are great. The story line interesting and I am so sad and disappointed
Is the network NUTS! cancelling Brother's and Sisters. They cancel the show, then I will start watching other stations and not watch what has replaced the time slot for B.& S. The network screwed us again!
ABC is determined to be last of the networks in programming. Cut soaps and other scripted shows to cut cost and guess what ABC? WE WILL NOT BE WATCHING YOUR DRIVEL. YOUR PROGRAMMING IS HORRIBLE!
Brothers & Sisters deserved a final show.
F'you ABC... Why don't you cancel Grey's and Private Practice while you're at it. Really? You keep Shark Tank and cancel Brothers & Sisters... SMART!
I agree we finally have a television show that appeals to so many groups and it's cancelled. Brothers and Sisters has to be one of the best casts ever assembled. I am also not happy about Off the Map. This show has been cancelled and a show like Combat Hospital will be coming on. Please enough, too many families are living this on a daily basis. At least Off the Map showed us some other cultures!
What a shame to take off a QUALITY show, please reconsider your poor judgement call!
OMG, please someone send all these replys to ABC or some other network. This is not a SOAP story. This show is so realistic that when you watched it you would say "WOW, I can see that happening in my family". PLEASE, PLEASE someone take over this show. It should not be cancelled, so many more story lines.
I am SO bummed.. Brothers and Sisters is my favorite show!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE someone, see it's worth and pick it up!
My family and I love Brothers and Sisters. It's great to show families that don't see eye to eye with each other. They still deep down love each other. Plus they are there to support each other even if it is hard. I hope ABC reconsiders. Brothers and Sisters is good family entertainment.
I was first devastated when OLTL was cancelled, a few days later Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution was cancelled. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that Brothers & Sisters was next... We hardly have any good dramas out there. All there is is reality shows and cooking shows. We get enough of that on cable, we need drama!! A show like B&S was amazing! Each episode was heartfelt and I could easily be entranced by the story lines. I am so disappointed in ABC and will no longer support ABC or their sister networks- and I'm not the only one you're losing! Shame on you ABC!!
Very sad to lean that Brothers and Sisters is being canceled. As a loyal viewer not knowing if it was returning or not I do think that finally was a great way to end, though of course left it so the Walkers live on with much more story to tell. Maybe NBC should pick it up and get the Walkers back to their roots at Ohi foods. Or maybe ABC will wake up and instead of wasting money on new series' that will just end up getting axed anyway and keep something good they already have or at the very least could bring the Walkers back for 2 hours specials once a month.
It's Ojai foods as in Ojai California I think.
I am so sad to learn that Brothers and Sisters is not in the line up for the fall! I absolutely LOVE this show!!! The writing is so clever, and the cast is just wonderful. Please ABC, reconsider this. You are making a terrible mistake!!!! I don't know where you are getting your ratings, but it's evident on here how much folks love this show!
Well that's it! ABC has really done it now! If they are cancelling Brothers and Sisters, then I give up trying to watch any more programs on TV. This was my favorite show and has brought up many issues for our immediate family discussion which may have even changed some decisions we have made in our own lives. All the story lines and actors were the best and I looked forward to it every week. What a disappointment. This was one of the last shows left with any quality on television. There must be some real morons in charge these days at the networks. Those dime-a-dozen reality shows are disgusting.
NBC/CBS or FOX pick up 'Brothers and Sisters' PLEASE. Love this show.
I am saddened by the news Brothers & Sisters has been cancelled. I love that show and we look forward to the next episode each week at my house. Please reconsider.
I don't know what ABC was thinking, I was looking forward to watching it, I can understand other programs, not Brothers &
Sisters! And what about Off The Map, that was different, not the same old program. I really think ABC should reconsider
these 2 programs.
So disappointed about Brothers & Sisters being cancelled! It's a great show compared to all the other crap reality shows. ABC you're making a mistake!
DETROIT 187 is a very good show!!! I really liked it!! Very well written and performed!! By all means, let's cancel something interesting and challenging to make room for the insipid garbage they broadcast!!
"You can't cancel Brother's and Sister's it is the best show on TV" enough said pay attention to what the public is saying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....................!
I can't believe that they cancel a show like Brothers and Sister and leave all this other crap on. I call it junk TV. There are very few shows that a normal person can watch. Brothers and Sisters was one of them. It was my favorite show and I looked forward to it every week. This is just the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. Why don't they cancel some of lame brain stuff they are playing. I can't believe people actually watch some of that worthless TV.
Oh well!! What good does it do to give you opinion nothing changes.
I can not believe that the following shows would be cut: V, The Event, Detroit 1-8-7-, and America's Most Wanted. These are all good shows that at least deserved another season to finish their plot! I hated it when they let Flash Forward go and we never did get to see an ending to it. Crime shows and Sci-Fi shows do appeal to some audiences! I think we need to see the shows we enjoy also and not just a whole bunch of family sit coms.
Best drama around!! Just found out last night the show was being cancelled at a party! Every women (mom) there was disappointed. It was their Sunday night wind down show to gear up for the week. BIG MISTAKE AGAIN
Who makes these decisions. ABC is definitely becoming the worst network ever!!! Cancel the best daytime soaps and now the best nighttime show. Brothers ans Sisters should get another chance, but the idiots running ABC are cluelessssssss!!!!!
Broken hearted over Brothers and Sisters - adult-targeted shows are getting more and more scarce – to be replaced by a clone of Snookie and her friends no doubt to appeal to the youth market. Seems ABC would rather pay millions to talentless housewives in every city in the U.S. than outstanding actors like those on B&S. I think I will have to boycott ABC - may not make a difference, but I'll feel better.
I did like Brother's and Sister's, but life happens and I don't watch anything anymore. But, when I was watching some tv, it was one of my favorites. Netflix should be getting it and I'll get caught back up eventually.
One more thing......put CSI: New York back on Wednesday nights and move Blue Bloods to another night besides Friday too.
Brothers and Sisters is one of my favorite shows! Please reconsider and don't cancel it! I also want to say that this year, the networks messed with the schedules so much it was hard to keep track of which night our other favorite shows were on. Fringe is one of my very favorite shows and I think when it was moved to Friday night, it killed it. Of course I still watch it but if the network is wanting a younger audience, I don't think you are going to get it on a Friday night! I haven't heard what you are doing to CSI: Miami but moving it to Sunday night against the other shows probably killed that one too. It was fine on Monday nights. The night it had always been on! Leave the shows with longevity on their usual nights and try the new shows in the open slots instead of the other way around. You're killing prime time!
Boohoo on Detroit 1-8-7 that show is absolutely fantastic. Yeah on CHUCK, too bad it is going to be their final season (according to another article).
Where do these networks, especially ABC, get the living brain donors who make the decisions regarding what shows stay and what shows go? They make me sick. At least tie up the loose ends on these shows before they're cancelled! Ive got news for the programming executives. Not everyone is as dumb as you people. Not everyone has the attention span of a sand flea. Not everyone has so few functioning brain cells that all we want to watch are moronic game shows like Shark Tank. They bounce the shows around on the schedule, show reruns about half the time, and then they cancel them. They're just as bad over on NBC. I watched Perfect Couples. It was smart and funny, and they cancelled it and put on the steaming pile of poo called the Paul Reiser show only to yank it after two episodes. Did they not know it was a steaming pile of poo before they cancelled a good show so they could air that?!? Idiots. The networks are run by idiots.
I think Brothers and Sisters was cancelled because it is a soap opera. Yeah it was on at night but it is a continuation series. I don't understand how Desperate Housewives is still on.
Loved Detroit 1-8-7 & Brothers & Sisters. Now, what?
Remember when cable came out and it was no commercials ?? We all flocked to cable for 7.95 a month. Regular tv was oh so boring well I think the networks are paying us back by putting royal trash on TV and 10-12 min of commercials within 30 min. All the good programing days are gone. ABC has repeatedly run soap like shows since way back and they continue to drop them withough any notice or story line ending.. I only watch a few of their shows as my way of boycotting.. Thank goodness for DVR.. so I can not use to much of my vaulable time.. on ads. I see ABC being in last for a long long time, too many people have lost insterest in their antics, every season...
I think it is bad enough that you watch Greys Anatomy and the 3rd week it is into the season they are showing you repeats and then it goes on hiatus for the holidays and by the time it comes back on who can remember what the story line is... So frustrating and disgusting. Sure is not like the good old days.
Dee that is one reason why I have lost interest in shows. I lost interest in Grey's when Izzy lost Dennis and she became an idiot. That was way over the top.
I ditched cable and switched to CBS. I love the programming on CBS and due to lack of cable have found shows that I have never watched before. It was like an eye opener. I am getting cable back since the so called digital signal keeps going out on me. It is too frustrating to watch, but I will stick with CBS for viewing MY shows, my husband no doubt will go back to his syfy channel. :)
Seriously people? While I admit that there is alot of worse crap on the air than Brothers & Sisters, I would hardly say that is is the best drama on TV. Actually, since the first season the storylines have been completely hokey and far-fetched. No one family could possibly ever endure the amount of tragedies that the Walker Family has. And one more thing...are the siblings quintuplets, because I swear that they all look to be the same age!?!? On a positive note...I do like Sally Field...I like her, I really really like her!
This is just ridiculous. I just contacted ABC on their website. Maybe we can get them to change their minds, if everyone voices their opinion!
I so enjoyed watching No Ordinary Family...it's a nice clean family oriented show. I was looking forward to the return of the show to see what happened next with their powers.
They got it wrong again. I love and look forward each week to Brothers & Sisters. This is a bad decision. I hope another network picks it up.
Can't believe Brothers & Sisters was cancelled. It was an excellent show and ABC is making a huge mistake. Hope another network picks it up and that ABC's loss with be another networks gain..
Brother's and Sister's is a fabulous show! I love the acting and the story line it is the best show on ABC why would you cancel it. This is just wrong.
With all the crap on TV and they cancel B&S what is ABC thinking? The only thing was two gay couples is a bit much one was enough, maybe another network will pick them up...I love Sally!
Who is the idiot who decided to cancel the show? Best show ever.
I would appreciate you re-thinking about canceling B&S, this is truly a show of how life is with so many differences, dramas and the Love that comes through, in my family there's a little bit of B&S.. With this great Cast it would do this world an unjust to us all.
Thats uncalled for.
All jib..a..boo shows will be cancelled.
I loved Perfect Couples, it was hilarious!! That was my favorite new show, along with Mr. Sunshine. I hate TV!
Its about time they cancelled gay butt hammering show Brothers and Sisters.
This was a great show. Great cast, portraying real life deep characters. Why in the world did they let it go? I was shocked when I saw this. I also looked forward to it every Sunday nite. Good writing, drama, comedic relief and so much heart. We need this show, really! TV has gone down the tube... Can you rethink this one ABC?!
They are doing this cause they only care about the young teenage audiance.
think of how many networks have been ruined trying to please the teenagers
Who does CBS listen to? Over the years, they always seem to cancel the good solid shows and pick up crap. I am horrified that Brother's and Sisters were cancelled. I really hope another network or Cable picks it up. Forget CBS, they are so clueless.
Sorry but America is tired of these gay men hiney fingering shows like brothers and sisters.
I hope another network picks up Brothers and Sisters. It's sad to see a show that deals with real issues get the boot.
To the cast- we did our job and loved you and will miss you.
Please reconsider cancelling Brothers and Sisters it is my favorite show on television, the only one I watch religiously on Sunday nights. PLEASE do not make this mistake!! Thank you!
When are they going to cancel american idol? They totally ran out of talent after the 3rd season. The judges are a joke. Especially steven tyler. What a loser!
I think you already said this
Yea. My phone is screwy and I didn't think the first one posted
I heard they are finally cancelling american idol. They have completely run out of talent and no one cares about the new judges. Steve tyler is a total retard.
I know. I hate that show so much. Steven tyler is the ugliest person I have ever seen
I agree too. Who cares about kareoke idol. Randy Jackson is worthless.
Kareoke sucks. That show is garbage.
American Idol is the biggest waste of time. All the contestents are terrible. Judges are annoying and they are jerks. Cancel that ****!
I used to love B&S but stopped watching it this year. They never allowed anyone to be happy on that show more than two seconds or so. What a downer it became. I won't miss it now.
Too bad about "V", but I really couldn't stand "Brothers and Sisters," in spite of it's mostly stellar cast. I wish Sally Field would just decide to age gracefully and quit trying to be "Gidget" or "The Flying Nun."
I love Brothers and Sisters but I guess it has been on for awhile. But OFF THE MAP?!?! Seriously! This show is amazing!! Please tell me they are reconsidering. It will be a real shame to loose this before it really even got a chance. Totally bummed :-(
I can't believed they cancelled V and The Event. I like these sci-fi like shows that stretch the imagination. Pretty soon all we will have on TV is reality shows! They will be happy then. Perhaps, the Syfy channel can pickup these shows. For the networks, it's all about ratings, dollars and cents!
I LOVED the Event, but it was so hard to keep up with the show if you missed one show, you really could not catch back up. I watched it every week till they stopped it for awhile, then I kept forgetting it was on and when I did try to catch up with the show it was too hard to figure it out. They should have made that show into a movie and left TV behind.
SO glad to hear Happy Endings will return!
VERY sorry to see Detroit187 go...loved the show
I'm so disappointed to learn that Brothers and Sisters is being cancelled. It's the only show that I never miss. With so many inane shows you would think ABC would want to preserve this one with it's wonderful story line and great acting. This has happened before though, so it shouldn't surprise us...it just makes you wonder, what the hell are they thinking.
neva seen it but u guys sound upset.but there are lots of shows & u will find another show.
I can't believe Brothers and Sisters was cancelled. It is one show I always watch on Sunday. I enjoy seeing the family interact and was interested in how the story was going. I just hope you reconsider.
Susan Lucci was on the View the other day. She said All My Children was being replaced by a food show or something & it cost 40% less to produce. So what does that say? Screw you ABC !
@Twisted. I see you were ran out of town. Ha ha.
Cancelling Brothers & Sisters is the worst!!! I CANNOT believe it!!!!! I love that show. Oh goodness. I might as well cancel cable. Why in the world cancel that show?! Ugh...
I was saddened to learn Bros. and Sisters was cancelled. I loved The Event, too. What an interesting plot line. This was only the first season and makes me wonder why they don't give new shows a chance. Idiot producers! I'm so sick of these stupid reality shows that cater to the teenagers and the mindless adults.
Are you Serious???...Brothers and Sisters???...I have been watching it since the beginning! Is ABC trying to deliberately destroy their ratings??? They seem to pull every show that ups their ratings. Not a fan of ABC...please fire whoever is making these decisions. Bye Bye ABC.
I thought (momentarialy) that ABC might have wised up when they ordered additional episodes of Detriot 187 - one of the few GOOD shows, with talented actors, and good story lines that was new this season - but oh no - can't have a good show on ABC anymore - gone 187, gone soaps that have been on since I was in high school, family shows like B&S - so they can put on another "food" program (isn't there a whole channel devoted to that), a healthy life show - duh if your are watching that you are not out walking, exercising or doing something truly healthy, and probably a whole bunch of ignorant reality shows - just what I don't want to watch when I am winding down for the day - CBS and the cable channels will now become my viewing ground ........ good luck ABC in selling your new fall line up .......
Are you kidding me, first you are taking One Live To Live Off and now Brothers and Sisters. I think that we all need to not watch ABC at all. Everyone needs to stand up for these good shows they are taking off. ABC, you are making the biggest mistakes by your actions of taking these shows off. And then to put new food shows on and weight shows on to take there place. Are you kidding. How many shows about food and weight do we need. We need happy entertainment like Brothers and Sisters and afternoon entertainment like One Life To Live. I think I am going to cancel ABC from my TV just as fast as they decided to cancel everyone's shows that need to stay put.
BUMMER. I really liked Detroit 197, OFF THE MAP & Brothers & Sisters!!!!!!
What do we have to do to get Brothers and Sisters back!!!?? I watch every week since the first season.
Thank God they canceled Brothers and Sisters my favorite show now I won't have to be glued to the tv every Sunday night. Housewives has gotten so dumb how did it make the cut. I am sad to loose my favorite show but I am going to turn off the tv. The last 2 seasons has really helped me break the habit there is hardly anything good on any more except CBS has a few good shows and Wed nights on ABC but they will screw that up too.

I hope sally field finds work though man ive had it for her ever since the flying nun
Hey guys for those of you who can get a and e at the same time as brothers and sisters is a show called breakout kings has good substance give it a try and say to hell with the networks
I used to like B&S and still do watch occasionally, but it has jumped the shark recently. The Sara wedding episode was really cheesy – ex. the men all singing her a song. i mean give me a break.
But the real reason this show is canceled is it was WAY too expensive to produce. I read Calista Flockhart got $2mil per episode. I can only imagine what Sally Field got. A great cast is expensive, and it simply didn't pull in enough viewers to command the big advertising bucks.
Ya know when reality first came out it was cool i mean just look at surviver and its still there but we need the mix of entertainment shows also to let us use our immagination but now they have room for sleepin with the stars or something stupid like that
I love this show, it actually has some substance to it, but no they would rather put their stupid reality shows that make no sense what so ever but for some idiot to have 15 minutes of fame. I'm ready to disconnect my dish and throw the tv out the door because these networks have no idea what people want to watch nor do they care!!!
Brothers and sisters is the best show on tv. I never miss it. Please don't cancel this wonderful show!
FYI ya’ll Vee is the same person as Sunshine Girl, B lo me, twisted, head diva in charge, Yo!!, I am batman, @N and a few others yet to be exposed… careful out there
this was one of the worst years in tv..Ihave very little time so i pick one show a night to watch . I got to say was hard pressed to pick shows V was the only high light of tuesaday . Mr sunshine was a very good show so nbc you had me there so no more nbc . think i will get deeper in to books on tapes and jst use tv for the news . what the hell is up with these people stopping good shows and leaving some of the lame ass stuff on . I rember when it was hard to chose something now it is cant find nothing . of course they dont care what we think guess we will get more med shows or police shows . Now the only thing to look forward to is the walking dead which is a great show .
Hi Deborah: I couldn't agree more !!! We are trying to get V and other shows we love back at iwantmyshowback dot com. You may want to consider joining us there. My favorite 3 shows got cancelled all at the same time :(
DONT CANCEL BROTHERS AND SISTERS>>>>>>> TERRIBLE MISTAKE
brothers and sisters is a great show, I never laugh and cry as often as I do watching this show.... please bring it back... its a shame how much great tv has been cnxled across all the major networks... reality tv shows are just garbage
I am with you on that one, every Sunday I was laughing and crying. I will miss that. Brothers and Sisters really got you feeling your emotions. It was a great show with a great cast. If ABC didn't make the cuts it made with cast it could of been even more great and may have still stuck around
I can't believe they cancelled Outsourced!!! Great show...got better with every episode!!! In case anyone feels the same way here is a link to the "Save Outsourced" page on Facebook.
I love Brothers and Sisters and Outsourced and The Event and V. I am tired of getting attached to shows and seeting them go so quickly.
Ok ABC. Seems you're heading in the direction of having cheap half hour shows and realityshows to save a buck. Go ahead. WIth the cancellation of All My Children and One Life to Live (daytime) and now several shows my husband and I enjoyed in primetime, you've just pushed us over to NBC, CBS, HBO, Showtime, and several other networks. I'm sure they are thanking you profusely right now. Foolish.
I can't believe that they took off Brothers & Sisters! I love that show. Instead they keep stupid reality TV shows like that Shark one because they are cheaper and don't have to pay good actors any money. Well, it will cost them in the long run when no one watches their station anymore! I will not watch stupid reality tv! I also liked No Ordinary Family. It was a fun show!! We need Fun shows on tv!
I so loved Brothers and Sisters and looked forward to watching it every week. It allowed me to laugh, cry and enjoy a glass of wine with this family! ABC execs, this is a very bad decision! Please reconsider and bring this wonderful show with its talented cast back!!
I will no longer be watching ABC. I loved Brothers and Sisters and like many other of you laughed and cried with this truly dynamic family. Sad day for me. Tv has gone to the dogs
let' see, what's left for me to watch ...almost nothing. Big Bang Theory and House. Over the years so many good shows have been taken off...now we see Lie to me, Brothers and Sisters, No Ordinary Family, etc. I guess teh networks just want us to get back into reading or playing more computer games. God forbid we get off the couch and get more exercise. Either way, there's really only junk left on tv. Think I'll cancel my cable.......
@B lo me. What a baby!
Brothers and Sisters is an amazing show, highlighting the importance of family, through good and bad times. I love Sally Fields and the role she plays as Mother. Why is this show being cancelled when there are so many on the air that are substandard at best...dislike this decision!!
Well, ABC..you did it again! You took a great family show and canceled it! This was one show I had to watch unconditionally. I watch very little TV anymore and was obsessed with BROTHERS AND SISTERS! All my emotions let loose during this hour I spent watching it. I laughed and cried with the family antics and troubles and can tell you I was truly transfixed! The hour flew by and the characters felt like MY family. All I can do now is beg you to reconsider your sad decision. Please, what will it take for you to reconsider??? Please... don't do this!!
Since ABC is so h*llbent on all these stupid reality shows maybe they show make one showing how ignorant the companys executives are in making their cancellation decisions. We finally get decent programming only to have it pulled after a couple of episodes for those d*amn reality shows. Thats what life is for-reality. Thats what tv is for-make believe relaxation. Theyd better get their act together before they lose all their viewers for good. The Neilsons are a joke if you ask me.
I am gonna miss outsourced and better with you, both witty comedies.
I really like Better With You. ABC has Wednesday night on lockdown with a great line up. I can't belive it didn't do better with ratings. I will miss Outsoursed as well. I would like to see another network pick it up, but I know it is unlikely.
@sunshine girl* im ok just a little ticked with that a** lloyd xmas
Brothers and Sisters goes off the air but all the other garbage stays on. So tired of all the reality TV that keeps on going and the junk TV shows. I can only assume that these shows are cheap to make and that investing in real talent and a solid story is no longer important to TV executives. Shame on them.
Off the Map was my one of my New favorite shows. Extremely upset it willnot be returning UGH!
I agree Off The Map was my new favorite. Extremely disappointing! Gray's Anatomy is getting old. Take that off the air instead.
I am so sick and tired of the 3 major networks canceling shows left & right.
I love Brothes & Sisters, Parenthood, The Event and Off the Map.
The reason new show do not due well is because people are sick of investing a season on a
show for then to cancel it.
This is why the cable network and the paychanel series are more popular.
I HATE ABC, they are the worst. I hope they go bankrupt.
Brothers & Sisters is my FAVORITE show..EVER! How can they cancel it!? I hope they go to another channel, and keep the show on...
Love the show – how could they cancel this, like every other fan is saying? Made me feel like my family with its intertwining issues like them, is not unusual. Just loved this show. Will miss their weekly episodes? Not more reality shows to replace a classy show with great cast of characters. PLEASE DON'T CANCEL SHOW!!!
I am so very dissappointed that Brothers and Sisters was cancelled! With all the other crap on TV these days,it was great to watch a down to earth family show. The characters were so real and you could actually identify with them. I have watched this show from the very beginning , it was a must watch on Sunday nights at 10,usually from bed. There is so much they can pull from now,Kitty's pregnancy, Sara's relationship with Brody, please reconsider!
I didn't realize until just today that Brothers and Sisters won't be back next season. I really loved that show, and looked forward to it each week. I cannot understand how it could not have had the viewers after reading the peoples comments on here. Well too bad the bigshots at ABC won't read our comments or concerns. It's all about the money. Shame the way our world is now. I will miss the show and all the characters terribly.
I just wrote ABC about cancelling Brothers & Sisters and No Ordinary Family. I don't watch their network as much any more as it is, in fact these programs and Desperate Housewives are the only ABC shows I do watch religiously. What turds.
It has gotten to where I don't want to watch TV any more. Everytime I get interested in a show it gets cancelled.
I'm glad NBC and ABC cancelled some of that garbage (Paul Reiser, Outsourced, Mr. Sunshine, Perfect Couples, Detroit 187, etc). But I'm mad that ABC cancelled Better With You, which I really enjoyed. I've never seen Brothers and Sisters but I know that it's a favorite, and with the cancellations of OLTL and AMC, ABC is going to be losing ALOT of fans this season.
you must be kidding – calling Detroit- 187 " garbage " ? I "d call it an exceptionally good show, Alas , just like Southland, it did not fit the mold . People don't like when a cop-show hits too close to real life.
I agree about "Better with You". It made me laugh out loud, every time I watched it. I am very disappointed it has been canceled. I also enjoyed watching "No Ordinary Family" and "Off the Map" and "V". I give up on ABC. This is the second season they have canceled all the shows I was following on their network. I dont want that to happen again so I am not even going to start watching anything new they present. I will continue to watch "Castle" but that is it.
Alex, Detroit was one of the finest shows on ABC. As for OLTL and AMC, well ABC they weren't going to get my viewership anymore anyways. So I guess it does not matter if they cancel Detroit or not. From the websites I have been to I am not the only one. ABC will be hurting and hurting big time.
I agree with another poster, B&S writing the last season was atrocious.
I cant believe Law & Order: LA is gone. It was bad enough when they cancelled the original after 20 yrs no less. Well at least I still have Law & Order: SVU. That one is the best anyways. These companies really need to reconsider what their doing. They cancel all the viewers favorites and leave sorry reality tv on the air. Why? Im sure money is the answer to that. @B lo me...How are you?
I am so upset that Brothers and sisters is canceled. This is the only show I wait for faithfully every week since the first episode. I cannot believe the crap they leave on but take off a good show with a great cast.
Something is wrong with ABC
ABC, you WERE known for quality programs, Now you cancel Brothers & Sisters. Good luck with your future ratings. As far as I'm concerned you NO LONGER are #1. Thank the Nielsens (whoever they are) for their ratings and your network going under. I'm not watching you anymore.
THANK GOODNESS!!! OUTSOURCED WAS FINALLY CANCELLED!!
please!!! please!!! please!!!! don't cancel brothers and sisters!!!!! abc have a heart and listen to us!!!!
I am in disbelief that Brothers and Sisters is being cancelled. This is a wonderful show with great story lines and talented actors. Please find a way to reconsider!
My wife and I , along with Daughters, Son-In-Laws, Sisters and Brother-In-Laws have watched, become enveloped, laughed, cried felt apart of this family show since its inception. For ABC to pull this out from under the viewing audiance without so much as a finale, shows the lack of heart by the producers. I for one will discontinue watching ABC forever.
I am livid and mad as hell that the bottom line to the producers is always about money.
why are these shows being cancelled? For another reality show I suppose? Networks love those shows b/c they don't have to pay for quality acting. Just what the world needs more screwed up people living their lives on TV.
Wake up America! SHow your displeasure turn that crap off. Someone watches it or it would not be on.
SOME ONE NEED THEIR HEADS EXAMINED AT THE NET WORK THAT JUST CANCELED "BROTHER AND SISTERS". WHAT ARE THEY THINKING. TV STINKS AS IT IS WITH ALL THE REALITY SHOWS. THIS WAS A GOOD FAMILY SHOW. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED. AND MAY I ADD MAD AS HELL.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! BRING BACK BROTHERS AND SISTERS FOR GODS SAKE!!!!!!!!!
So sorry to see that Brothers & Sisters is cancelled. One of the few shows that portrayed modern family life, warts and all.
Tis ashame these networks get you hooked on a series, as their plan, then YANK them out from under your feet without giving it a chance, such as No Ordinary Family. I liked both Brothers and Sisters, but I'm not surprised they're both gone. Because this is what the network's characters have become.
I have no idea what we can do about it except to strike TV, but how do we do that really? It's sad. They don't really care about US – the VIEWERS and how WE feel becasue if they did they'd ask – they care only for the numbers and if the numbers aren't in the top, oh I don't know, TOP 5, they cancel the show(s)!!!!
We are peons in their little games. After this year, no new shows for me. Ever.
That'll show 'em.
Question: How many accountants does it take to cancel a show? Bottom line – $$$$$ – to heck with talent.
I am so disappointed that Brothers and Sisters was cancelled. I LOVE that show! The entire cast was absolutely wonderful, the story lines were real life issues. Please consider bringing back Brothers and Sisters!!!
Whoever decided to move Law and Order to LA doesn't understand what viewers actually love about the original. We loved the gritty NYC setting, the darkness of it, and Jack McCoy. Law and Order is not supposed to be sunny and colorful. Bring back the original.
Not surprised...I started watching "V" and it was a pretty good show, however knowing how ABC always cancels the best shows especially the shows with the continuation plots...such as UGLY Betty moved it around too much and another favorite Life ON Mars moved it around also then cancelled and I jsut could not invest the time in ABC again...sorry V
After Life on Mars cancellation by ABC I have not watched any of their shows since...just not worth it they will cancel on ya! Love cable and syndicated TV.....
Say it isn't true! I watched this show faithfully every week.Good scripts each week and great dynamics between all the characters on the show.Brothers and Sisters is one of the best shows on Tv.We must start a campaign on the network page to have them keep this show on the air!
It has worked in the past and it might work for us now. It can't hurt to try, or at least have them move it to another night if they won't keep it on the current slot.There is nothing good on Saturdays, for instance.Heros,Ghostwhisperer, and now Brothers and sisters, why do all my favorite shows get cancelled?
Brothers & Sisters was one of my favorite shows. Watched it every week. Please reconsider.
I just saw the season finale for B&S and thought it was the WORST!!! This show has turned into the most ridiculous schlock in prime time and I vowed to myself I'd never watch it again. Well, I guess the network (and the public?) made it easy to fulfill that vow by pulling the show, thankfully. What a waste of so many good talents and beautiful people.
I totally agree! I used to love Brothers & Sisters, but it was awful this season. I can't believe how horrible the writing was. The storylines with Kitty and Sara were always so silly and annoying. I'm not surprised that it was pulled.
I agree with Bill R....I watched Brothers & Sisters for a few years but I thought they "jumped the shark" when Kitty had her playground "affair" right after her husband almost died! The family dinners/fights were funny the first few times, but quickly got old. I'm sad to see such good talent wasted on story lines that were not worth watching.
So disappointing that Brothers & Sisters was canceled. So many great laughs over the past years. Not many worthwhile programs left to watch. I really enjoyed The Event as well. Both were well acted and written programs. Hopes that both networks would reconsider.
Hi peeps. These boards are dead.
FYI ya’ll Vee is the same person as Sunshine Girl, B lo me, twisted, head diva in charge, Yo!!, I am batman, Superhiro and a few others yet to be exposed… careful out there

I'm getting to the point where I will be less likely to watch new network programming in the future. I just cannot invest my time in a program's storyline just to have the network cancel it without bringing the program to a satisfactory conclusion. Brothers and Sister was a favorite and, although they didn't announce it's last show as being a season or series finale, I got the sense that the story was finished. However, for other shows that were canceled, V and The Event, the networks didn't bother to honor them with an ending. Also, let's not forget the disrespect they showed the viewers who chose to invest time watching their network. Instead of producing programs that might turn into long-term series, perhaps the networks should only produce programs that can be wrapped up in ONE season.
I agree completely. Why spend time getting interested in a new show when some Joe Schmoe decides to cancel it out of the blue?
The networks only have themselves to blame for the lack of viewers for some shows. I love The Event, but I knew it was doomed when NBC took it off for 3 months. This show has a lot of characters and multiple story lines. They didn't bother to show reruns when it returned in early March. Those of us with TIme Warner cable could watch all the episodes On Demand to remind us of what has gone on, but not everyone has Time Warner. I don't know what the thought process is behind these hiatuses (sp?) lately, but I'm sure ABC killed Flash Forward and V by doing the same thing. Even a hit show like Lost dropped viewers probably because of this policy.
As far as Brothers and Sisters...not surprising...it's a quality show...why on earth keep it on? They'll probably replace it with a reality show.
bad decision abc. how can a pure, down to earth, realistic show like 'brothers and sisters' be cancelled???? there is no need getting hooked ever cos who knows, it may be cancelled just when u are in the moment. Better stick to movies and theatres.
ABC has been notorious this past month at breaking the hearts of the fans of their shows. It's all about money and their inept program managers. I have already shut off ABC due to the cancellation of my favorite soaps....but now, they have cancelled the best nighttime show, Brothers and Sisters. Go ahead ABC, bring on more reality shows...I am planning on tuning you out forever. your shows are tanking because of your stupidity. YOU SUCK!!!!
That's so sad Brothers and Sisters isn't coming back. Shame, shame, shame. One of the best things on TV! Pleaes rethink this. Just like Ghost Whisperer. Another great series that bit the dust with no official ending. Just terrible networks do this to the audience.
Shame on ABC for cancelling Brothers and Sisters and not giving it the opportunity for a proper ending. As I have stated on another site, done with ABC.
Now that all the good shows will be off air, including all my children & one life to live, there's not much left to watch. I guess that leaves more time to go to our new casino! Boo to ABC & the others who cancel good shows!!! :(
I'm REALLY upset that Brothers & Sisters was canceled! I loved that show! So many great shows are being canceled and reality junk like Shark Tank is still on air? How is that possible?
ABC is making a big mistake in canceling shows that people have invested in..because for me as av viewer why would I spend time watching shows tha tmight be yankded after one or two episodes or even one sesaon.....I would rather watch something I cna have some closure to ....a movie, etc.......SHAME on ABC for canceling Brothers & Sisters and leaving the garbage on TV that passes for entertainement.
it seems to me that abc is cancelling alot of good shows to bring on alot of garbage that noone is going to watch i have a feeling abc is going to lose alot of viewers.
I cant believe they are not going to continue Brothers and Sisters! It is a show filled with a great cast and writers. The story lines are so real and the cast really captures the emotions to the point where we can relate to them. The fighting is the funniest thing and I know of many families who go thru the same type of arguing and picking and telling secrets...its so sad that ABC decided all those reality shows and teenage shows are more interesting. I guess we will need to find another station to give quality shows like this one. Sally Fields-u will be missed!!!
please bring back brother and sisters.its a great clean show and it so true how we live our lifes.
Brothers and Sisters will be greatly missed.
with all this crap they put on television nowadays...teenagers changing bf and gfs like underwear...tis a shame they cancelled a show like brothers and sisters where almost each and every episode brought tears to my eyes...wishing that i will oneday have a family like that...yeah u knw wat ABC sucks big time...
I AGREE ABC IS MAKING SOME TERRIBLE CHOICES IT CANCELLED AMC AND OLTL, NOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS. I THINK SHOULD GET RID OF WHOEVER IS MAKING THESE STUPID DECISIONS. I HAVE A FEELING ABC IS GOING TO LOSE ALOT OF VIEWERS
I don't want shows that bring tears to my eyes. I want shows that bring a rise to my levis.
Happying Endings is ok but I rather have that show axed for No ordinary family. Seriously what is going on. They canceled many shows I liked this year. Lie to Me, the event, chicago code, no ordinary family, law and order la, and some others.
I just don't understand tv now days. Stations keep s on shows they have to beep every other word because of the language, but won't keep wholesome shows on like Brothers and Sisters. I have laughed and cried while watching this show. It's being booted because it's clean, real and touching. You are soooooooooo wrong ABC for canceling this show.
I am so with you. I loved Brothers & Sisters. I hate that they cancelled it!!!
I agree they ake off the good shows that have family lines in them and keep the ones they need to leep evry word or where eveeryone is jumpijng in the sack with the first person they meet,
No point to keep paying the high cost for T.V. Noting left to watch anyway ! Brothers and Sisters was THE BEST !!! Time to get back to just sitting out sid ewith family and friends and visiting and in the winter get back to card games and board games !
I Agree!!! MOST of the shows on TV aren't worth watching . . . B&S was one of my favorites too and I miss it terribly!! But they will keep on all those darn reality shows . . . . dumb move!!!
WOW... you are all really stupid lol.
THE SHOW HAD NO RATINGS... that's the ONLY reason it was cancelled.
get to this http://www.SUPERSONIC.US.COM
I can't believe "Brothers and Sisters" has been cancelled. One of my favorite shows. Great actors, great acting and good storylines. And then they keep garbage like "Shark Tank". I wonder, like all other cancelled shows, if it will be there on Sunday and then just gone. No finale. PLEASE PEOPLE AT LEAST HAVE A FINALE!
They did leave the show at a good spot though with the wedding and everybody in a happy place. I did want to see more of what is going to happen to Kitty.
Well this just sucks. It was the only show I watched on Sundays. Really hope another network picks it up.
Brothers and Sisters was a GOOD quality show!!! It has a wonderful cast, great writers and story lines. I am so disappointed that it is canceled and the way they treated the fans is sad as well. We should have at least been made aware of a SERIES finale and not led to believe we were watching a SEASON finale. It is frustrating to become invested in these shows and then not even get any storylines wrapped up. It's like we've been reading a novel only to find that the last few chapters have been torn out of the book and there is no way to find another copy of it. YUCK!!
I am so disappointed about the news. I have watched the show since the beginning and really look forward to it every week. Why do they take off the good shows and leave in the stupid shows. This show had meaning and great actors. I am really going to miss the family. I got my daughter hooked on the show and she feels the same as I do. Is there anyway we can do to change the minds of whomever decision it is to do this?
Must you yell.
I am so angry that the powers that be have cancelled the best show on TV.........Brothers and Sisters. This is it for me I
have seen so many of the really good shows get the axe. Never have understood the reason behind this, but I'm sure it has to do with money. My TV is off to ABC for good now after this stupid move and I sure an even stupider reality show will be taking it's place. The ABC executives are all morans because they can't handle intellegent shows and Brothers and Sisters was. I hope ABC has a window in their stomachs since they have their heads up their ass.
WHAT??!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW COULD THEY CANCEL NO ORDINARY FAMILY, THAT SHOW WAS THE BEST. I WATCHED EVERY EPISODE. LOVE HAPPY ENDINGS GLAD THEY KEPT THAT SHOW, BUT I WANT ANOTHER SEASON OF NO ORDINARY FAMILY.
I AGREE!!! This was one show our entire family watched regularly and everyone enjoyed. Network programming is a joke – no wonder so many series are showing up elsewhere – HBO, STARZ, FX, etc.
brothers and sisters is my favorite show! how does a show like happy endings get picked up for another season, when a show like brothers and sisters, which has one of the most amazing casts and is always full of heart, humor, and drama gets the axe?
i agree..i really enjoyed brothers and sisters. well here's to second life in syndication.
brothers and sisters is an amazing show. maybe another network will pick it up! I enjoyed off the map too. it was starting to get good. Pretty soon, I won't have to even turn on the the tv as all of the good shows are being cancelled. way to go networks. way to work on keeping viewers versus getting those tv's to be shut off!
Seriously? If it's intelligent,let's cancel it! All the network suck!
Bummed, bummed, bummed. I love "Brothers and Sisters". Figures they would cancel a show with intelligent, thought provoking and humorous writing and brilliant acting and will now air something stupid. And the networks wonder why they're losing audiences...Glad I have Netflix and HBO....
I love Brothers & Sisters, i wish the network would work harder to save the good shows. Charge more for advetisering if necessary.
So disappointed to see B&S cancelled! My favorite show right now, and such an amazing cast. I will miss it.....
Shocking ABC would cancel such an amazing show! Brothers and Sisters hands down best quality show on ABC..
I'm sooo upset about Brothers and Sisters and Off the Map...it's pathetic that shows like Shark Tank and Happy Endings continue while these excellent shows are cancelled!
Really? Who the hell decides this? Why on earth would you cancel such a show as Brothers & Sisters? It is a great show! How sad. I'm sure the network will come up with some stupid reality show to replace it!
This is a total bummer... I love watching Brothers and Sisters....and Off the Map was my absolute new favorite...I am very disappointed in the ABC network.
My favorite show bar none- could relate to all the family drama-the acting was magnificent. PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL BROTHERS & SISTERS
I can not believe this...I love Brothers & Sisters. I do not miss an episode. Looks like ABC is doing it again :(
Someone please pick it up
I agree, Brothers & Sisters is an amazing show. It touches on real life issues in a realistic manner. The cast is simply fantastic and the show has NOT HIT THE WALL, so why cancel this fantastic show???? I agree, with the cancellation of Brothers & Sisters and Lie to Me, I think I just might have to cancel my cable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't believe they would cancel a show as GREAT as Brother's and Sister's! Why in the world would you do that? Please oh please say it isn't so...how are we to go on without knowing what's going on with the Walker family? Please reconsider the cancellation (unless it's the actors choices)!
I can't believe that Brothers and Sisters would be cancelled. It was the most heartfelt show on television. The cast was excellent, the storylines incredible and the Network, short sighted. Hopefully it will find a home somewhere else, I surely will follow. To all the Cast, thank you for the years of tears and laughter. Thank you for making my Sunday evening something to look forward to. To ABC, I guess its time to move to a different channel.
I agree! This was my favorite show and looked forward to it ever Sunday! Everyone needs to go to ABC and email them about your disappointment, or maybe we should start a facebook Campaign to save Brothers & Sisters.
I agree. I loved that show. I'm so diappointed that it got cancelled. Sherry, how does one contact ABC?
To the morons who can't figure out WHY this show was cancelled, I will solve the great mystery for you.
THIS SHOW, HAD NO .... Wait for it..... it's really suspenseful..... R A T I N G S!!!
Shows with ratings don't get cancelled. DUH.
How does Shark tank get renewed and a show like Brother and Sisters get cancelled? Get rid of Shark tank and LEAVE BROTHER AND SITERS ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is there something we can do? I agree with everyone else... It's an intelligent, well written show with a great cast... Darn!
Can't believe they canceled Brothers & Sisters. I'm finished with network TV. There's nothing good on any more. Much better shows on SHO and HBO and other channels. I can't stand these reality shows and I refuse to watch them. The networks as we know them are on the way out. They'll have to charge like premium channels and give us something decent to watch.
I agree all good family shows get cancelled! this was my favorite show too..
how could they cancel brothers and sisters??!??! i love the show and was my favorite!!!...i will miss all the characters especially kevin :(
I agree Ivan. Brothers & Sisters is a great show and there is so much junk on and they cancel a show like this with some quality. I think the head network honchos are using monkeys to choose their shows! Since the caliber of TV is rapidly going downhill (too much reality shows) that maybe I will consider video games and lots more good books and maybe an extra evening walk or two INSTEAD of watching television. Guess I need to invest in some more DVDs to watch.
Why on earth did anyone decide to cancel "Brothers And Sisters" ????!!?? It's such a great series, please please let them continue to series 6 and many many more!!!
Brothers & Sisters is one of the BEST shows on the air. How could they cancel it? I'm deeply disappointed that they leave so much junk on the air (like all those ridiculous reality shows) and take off a great show with a wonderful cast and following. Sickening.
I am so bummed about Brothers & Sisters. What a huge mistake to cancel such an outstanding show.
I agree, I loved Brothers and Sisters. It was one of the 2 shows I watched on ABC. Brothers and Sisters and Extreme Makover:Home edition. I guess I'll just have to watch some other network at ten pm on Sunday. Too bad.
I completely agree! Brothers and Sisters is an amazing show! I sure hope another network will be smart enough to pick up such a great show.
Deff agree. B and S is one of my favorites and am heart broken to see it go . This is a big mistake and hope they will learn and restart the show . Hope the network reads this and listens to the people! You will be missed!
I enjoyed the quality of this show and the actors that the show attracted – seasoned actors like Richard Chamberlain and Sally Fields along with Callista Flockart and Rachel Griffiths.
I LOVE Brothers and Sisters, even have the DVR programmed to record it, old or new. Watch it live as often as possible, record it all, watch it again and again. Sure, there were a couple of times when the story lines went awry, but that happens on every show that lasts more than one season. I agree: if it is witty, well-written, true-to-life, sensitive, beautiful...cancel it. This BITES! So sad!
Noooooooooooooooooooo... I am so disappointed!!! i love Brothers and Sisters... It is a great show... I just love it... Just remind me of my family.. 7 brothers and sisters... Full of love and hate. Forgiven.... Great show.. WHY? WHY cancel it?? WHY? Noooooo... So good!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO – where is my favorite show on Sunday nights!! ABC you are loosing it!! Taking shows like this off the air and putting on reality shows is not the way to maintain loyal viewers!
If it is not put back on I will stop watching and encourage all friends and many family members to stop watching ABC
I love Sally Fields – what a big mistake you are making – It is time to turn off ABC!! Lets Cancel ABC !!!
I too am sad about Brothers and Sisters getting cancelled. Talking about diversity...this show had it! There are way too many "reality" shows on and not enough hour long dramas like this one!!!!!!!!!!
I totally agree with ivan., was so looking forward to Sunday's pm
I agree with you. Brothers and Sisters is well written! It's sad that networks can keep so-so shows and cancel the best one.
Bummer... I have enjoyed watching B&S and I so looking forward to another season of "The Walkers". So sorry to see this show cancelled.
We just watched what was left he last season. This show could have gone in so many different directions! How can something so great get canceled. Sarah, Brody, Daniel, Justin, and how about Kittie's pregnancy...all intriguing and exciting story lines.
We're so sorry to see the end of what should have continued....

I just can not believe that brothers and sisters was cancelled! I have been watching for it to begin again and I am so disappointed. With all of the other junk that is still aired I can not fathom why they would cancel such a great show. The actors and actresses are top notch and the story lines interesting and real. ABC has lost a lot of its appeal and I hope that another network picks up on their great loss! What Fools!!!!!
I agree is such a good cast and they have such a message not matter all the problems they have betwen the family they allways help one to another and stick togheter It was my favorite show i hope they come back again
I think some other network should pick it back up I didn't know it was off for good till it didn't come back on. Ithought it was just the start of a new set of problems with Kitty and the baby and she could get sick again Sarah just met her dad and got remarried with other silbings by her dad Justin hooked back upwith Taylor and Tommy just started again and saw found someone finally mora got her love back. So confine it please
This was one of the best most realistic shows on the air!! It'd be nice to know when a show you watch every week is not coming back, instead of waiting for the premier and having to just guess they cancelled it! Now It looks like private practice is just going to disappear too, frustrating!!
