    My wife and I are really going to miss this show. It was consistently LOL funny for 60 minutes. It was easy to miss a joke or reference because they were coming at you so fast.

    I enjoyed it but I was skeptic of it being renewed so I didn't allow myself to get too attached. The only bright side is that if Netflix goes after Jericho, now Brad Beyer is available again.

    I enjoyed this also. The pilot has so funny. I was hooked immediately. The first 2 episodes were the funniest stuff I had seen in a long time. I was lol, which I don't do often.

    I pretty much gave up on it anyway. Now I don't have to finish.

    My wife enjoyed it. It was a goofy filler show when nothing else was on but I had a feeling it wouldn't last. Just too "out there" for most folks.

    I couldn't bring myself to watch it having been a Baptist for some years and I didn't need a review of some of the hypocracy I saw in these Good Christian women. ugh

    Is this time slot ABC's Kiss of Death, or what?

    (still pissed about the cancellation of Pan Am)

    I think 10PM in general is no longer must see TV. It used to be the hot slot with ER and Dallas but 9PM is where its at now on the networks. Cable seems to have the 10PM slot these days.

    With Desperate Housewives gone, I think ABC is going to have a tough time on Sunday nights. I assume they will put Devious Maids in the old DH slot. They are going to need that to be a hit.

    I wouldn't be opposed to them moving Revenge to Sundays as well. It would probably do well there.

    I think GCB had a great appeal for a small group of people.

    Those with a personal connection to that region of the country, or who were familiar with that type of religious belief/hypocrisy, or who were particular fans of the stars prior work, were probably the only people likely to watch this show. Unfortunately, what little advertising the show received went out of it's way to further reduce the size of that pool of prospective viewers. The number remaining were just not enough to support a network television series.

    It's too bad, because I count myself among that small number who will miss this show.

    Damn... :( It was funny. Poking fun at the so called hypocrisy was part of what made it so funny.

    And Leslie Bibb is still smoking hot. I liked me some Amanda.

    They may have been a little slow out of the gate, but I thought they had really hit their stride with the last couple of episodes.

    Great cast -- I'll miss this show, too. :(
