DAMN DAMN DAMN!!!!!!
‘God Friended Me’ was my must-watch show of the week. Every episode kept me interested and wanting more. I am sad it was cancelled.
This was my favorite show it allowed a bit of peace after all the violent stuff on TV and everything going on in the world..Please consider bringing it back.. The Simpsons goes on and on and only has 1.4 mil and that just seems unfair..The Actors are very good on God Friended me it’s great to see many of them in new roles.
Please consider bring back !!
Why is it that excellent but quirky shows can never seem to attract much of an audience? Are the masses mostly just…boring? Bryan Fuller has made a career out of proving the point.
Zoey’s is so good. I feel like it’d work really well as a Netflix show. It has a lot of qualities that make it a good one to binge.
I so love Zoey and am praying somehow it gets renewed – it’s my favorite show currently on TV and I watch a lot of TV!
So much this. It is guaranteed to make me smile at least once an episode. It is absolutely my favorite.
I’m dreading the finale, where I assume Mitch dies. This show is so good that I’m sure it will rip my heart out.
Really enjoy Zoeys but had to watch the series finale of Homeland last night. Good Girls I think has run out of steam. It’s the same old same old at this point and where the could be using Rio more they brush past him with a couple of minutes of him looking at Beth and that’s it. He is a big part of the reason that I watch the show. Is next week going to be another situation where she tries to have him shot and then what???
Could not agree more, sadly. Disappointing.
Could not agree more, sadly. Disappointing.
I’m Hoping Zoey’s will get renewed. Both shows double or triple their live views with dvr and online viewing. If it’s renewed, move it to the new Peacock streaming service if they can’t stand the Sunday ratings. It’s such a great show, no need to cancel it NBC.
That’s not good news for zoey. Such a fun show. It’s long shot but I really hope it gets renewed. Good girls had very good 2 seasons,but lost its touch in season 3.If one of these 2 shows can be renewed my vote goes to Zoey.
Zoey is such a great show!!! I love it so, so, so much! I want it to stay! It had better get a 2nd season.
I am so disapointed that God Friended Me, got cancelled. At this time it is
So nice to have a feel good show. May be it will get picked up on a other channel .
Love both”God friended me” and Zoeys playlist. These shows are a must for good tv viewing. Really want these shows to continue ❤️❤️
NBC, if you cancel Zoey, you’re idiots! Great show.
Very sad to see God Friended ME cancelled. Many I know watch this show religiously. We discuss the show and share opinions and ideas from the show. What can we do to get this show to stay on TV.??
I gave Zoey a shot a few weeks ago and binged watched the series on Hulu in one weekend. This is such an upbeat and positive show for everyone; it will make you smile. I really hope it gets a second season.
Please don’t cancel
God Friended Me, we love this show. We NEED this show.
God friended me….. such an incredible show! Such a powerful message week after week! It is sad the network doesn’t see the value in this show. The times we are in we need more positivity! Overrun with crime and medical shows! Zoey’s Extraordinary playlist I hope pray it is renewed! Once again just a great show that does some showcasing of the human spirit! Be smart renew!!!!!!
Reading this article is the first I am hearing that the show is cancelled. I am truly sad to hear this. I was surprised when I saw that it was a 2 hr event. I hope that in time you will reconsider bringing it back. One show that was a pleasure to watch.
I truly wish God Friended Me could have found a way to stay on the air. I am sure I am one of many who loved this show. Not the normal high packed action show, but an extremely caring show for the whole family to watch.
Where there’s a will there is a way.
Bad mistake cutting
God Friended Me!!!!!!!
Why is God Friended Me cancelled..it is a wonderful, family show, I am so tired of crimes, blood, sex on tv…please someone else pick it up …..
NCIS Los Angeles need to continue with their storyline. God friend Me I can’t say enough good things about this TV series.
We need this type of show now. It’s comforting. Simple and I like the hope it leaves us with – bring it back.
PLEASE bring God Friended Me back!!
We need more shows like this.
Sick of zombies, vampires and swearing.
I AGREE 100%!!!!!!! GREAT SHOW. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!
Please return God Friended Me, we really need a show like it in times like these. It is a show that really resonates with people.
God friended me was the one dont miss show of the week for us. It was a very nice change from what is on the rest of the time. So sad that it isn’t co.ing back in the fall. These are the types of shows that there should be more of.
I loved God Friended Me. Along with the Neighborhood, Black Lightening, the Flash, and Roswell N.M.–those are my go to programs I watch every week when they are on. God Friended Me was one of my very favorites cuz the story lines seemed placible. Real life situations and local filming in New York with visible landmarks. The actors were all outstanding. I will miss seeing this show every Sunday night.
American Idol should have been canceled. Not God Friended Me!!
Zoey is such an amazing show, full of fun, drama, heart wrenching, kick into the gut moments that always lets me wanting more! The cast and crew are perfect and I hope that it gets renewed!
CBS: Bring back God Friended Me.
