    What about Rizzoli and Isles?

  2. jalahyacinth says:

    NO! They can’t keep The Foster’s over Bunheads! :( Why not keep both? They appeal to slightly different audiences anyways…

  3. M. says:

    Happy for “The Fosters”. Although I hope that “Bunheads” will get another season. *fingers*crossed*

  4. Mika02 says:

    This is really why I am now DVRing The Fosters. Bunheads and the Fosters are really two different show renewing one shouldn’t depend on the renewal of the other. It sucks ABC Family is doing this.

  5. Columbus says:

    I am in love with The Fosters – quality television for all ages. So pleased that the ratings are soaring. I also really like Bunheads so I hope that, despite their mediocre ratings, ABCFamily finds some way to renew that show too.

  6. Kira says:

    I was really hoping The Lying Game would be renewed :( The storyline was fantastic and had a really good pace.

  7. Alienate says:

    I guess you had to show a picture from last week’s AGT (China girl with cups) because last nite’s show had no talent what so ever. Except for the 3 guys closing the show. What a crappy 2 hours of TV.

  8. Aprilcot says:

    I wish more people watched SYTYCD. It’s the best reality competition show, IMHO, and so much more heartfelt than most of its competitors. If the people who watch America’s Got Talent are looking for *real* talent, they should switch over to Fox!

  9. G says:

    I’m still not watching anything new on ABCFamily until they renew The Lying Game. :(

  10. Jared says:

    Fans of Bunheads should be VERY worried.

  11. Jacob says:

    I’ll be absolutely furious if ABC Family nixes Bunheads. I hope the critical rallying the show has gotten from a few outlets will help, because I bet ABC Family would love a nice critics fave in their corner to show off to their friends. They haven’t really had one of those. Like, ever.

  12. mia says:

    ABC Family can keep SaB, The Fosters *and* Bunheads. There’s room for everyone!

  13. Seriously says:

    Really Jacob? Because The Fosters is an even Bigger Critical Darling than Bunheads. It’s hugely successful and the critics adore it.
