Report: ABC Cancels V and BROTHERS & SISTERS

May 13, 2011 by  

Multiple outlets are reporting that ABC has canceled V and BROTHERS & SISTERS.

While the season finale of BROTHERS & SISTERS had some closure and a potential series finale feel to it — the hour included a wedding, romantic reunions and a pregnancy — the V season finale definitely didn’t.

Are you disappointed to lose the Walkers? Or are you more bummed about V not getting a third season?

    Nooooooo! Brothers and Sisters is the first cancellation I am really bummed about.

    Yeah I guess the finale did have some closure, and both Tommy and Kitty were there so at least the whole family was together. But Kitty’s pregnancy! I wanted to see where that was going.

    Please consider haveing some kind of closure to Brothers and Sister, because season V seemes to have unfinished business. I care a lot about Brothers and Sisters and would hate for the ending to come so soon. I really look forward to watching this show and all the charters were right on time with their parts, a job well done.

    Of course I am sad to waive bye-bye to the Walkers (though not as sad as my mom will be!) but I think that the writing was on the wall and TPTB knew it as seen by their season, I mean, series finale!

    Now, someone get Dave Annable back on my television right quick, ok?!

    This is SO sad. Brothers & Sisters does NOT deserved to be cancelled!! This is my FAV sho ever!!!!! :(:(:( please abc this is horrible.

  5. Shayla Mason on May 13th, 2011 5:34 pm

    I knew it was too good to be true that the Walkers woul finally be happy! I knew the way Nora was looking at her family on the dance floor had the “End of the Road” feel. I will truly miss the Walkers!!!!

  6. M. C. Bell on May 13th, 2011 5:51 pm

    Add me to the list of people who really enjoyed the Walker’s and their trials and tribulations. Somehow, it doesn’t feel finished to me and I would like to see another season of it with Tommy settled, Justin enjoying something and finding out what happens to Kitty. No Fair, ABC canclling in mid-story!

    Whyis it thay they always cancel the best shows on TV and then renew Jersey Shore for another season and offer those classless kids spinoff series? Not everyone is 25 years old and want to watch 25 year olds behaving badly. I used to think those peopel that told me the don’t have a TV in their house were crazy, now I wonder why I still have mine? I am so bummed about Brothers & Sisters, what a horrible mistake ABC is making, now I have one less reason to watch ABC, they are just becomming the worst!

  8. Sandi on May 13th, 2011 6:41 pm

    Ohhhhhhh, my favorite show and I have very few favorite shows. It very much reminded me of my family growing up that has discentigrated because of death and fighing over a piece of property. Cancer is a terrible disease.
    I don’t like the energy of V…..I think it is the right kind of energy to put out into the world about trust and safety.

  9. Dorita on May 13th, 2011 7:11 pm

    I feel really frustrated that good programming like Brothers and Sisters get canceled while so much drivel stays. I will miss them, guess I will get more quilting done now.

  10. JC on May 13th, 2011 7:27 pm

    Why doesn’t Lifetime TV pick up Brothers& Sisters. They seem to have some good shows, i e Army Wives, Coming Home, and good movies. They need more good shows to fill in the blanks, instead of repeat, repeat of minor old shows…
    just a thought.

  11. Tanya on May 13th, 2011 7:41 pm

    The Walkers were going some where. The season finale left too many loose ends to be a series finale. Why cancel one of the best shows on ABC? Too expensive? Two thumbs down! Lots of deadwood to ax and instead cut down a beautiful oak.

  12. Brenda on May 13th, 2011 8:04 pm

    Im going to miss Brothers and Sisters. It reminded me of my family. Real problems in families. Why do you take off good shows to put trash on like sex and drugs and vampires? I dont get it!

  13. Denise on May 13th, 2011 8:11 pm

    Oh, I really don’t like this decision. I love this show, and while it was more visually entertaining with the so handsome Rob Lowe, I feel invested in the Walker family and have enjoyed their family ups and downs over the past few seasons. Hopefully it will end up on another network. Agree with posts above, they throw money at those idiots on Jersey Shore and cancel a show that is worthy of watching.

  14. Barb on May 13th, 2011 8:36 pm

    One of the few shows that are not a Reality show, which I am sick to death of. I really liked Brothers and Sisters, one of the best shows on TV. TV Exec have their head up their — when they deceided to cancel this one.

  15. judy on May 13th, 2011 8:55 pm

    one of my favorite shows. What a bummer.

  16. chillady on May 13th, 2011 9:17 pm

    Are you kidding!!!!! They cancel one of the best shows in the line up , WHY? yet they think Kutcher can carry 2-n-1/2 men. Who’s smoking what

  17. chillady on May 13th, 2011 9:19 pm

    UN-CANCEL Brother’s and Sister’s

  18. Joanne ONeil on May 13th, 2011 9:43 pm

    I’m so sad about the cancelation of Brothers and Sisters. It was my favorite show.

  19. debi on May 13th, 2011 10:03 pm

    Five years ago I was so pleased to finally have a show to witness, with actually well written, thought out storylines.It was one of my favorite, relationship driven programs. Brothers & Sisters was well written, artfully acted by a steller ensemble cast and to top it off courageous storylines. Now the only drama all I have to look forward to watching is Parenthood! Thank you to everyone for 5 seasons of well spent Sunday nights!

  20. Diane on May 13th, 2011 10:23 pm

    I am so sad to hear about Brothers & Sisters being cancelled. That is one of the great TV shows to watch. Me and my sisters love to watch it and then call each other to go over what happened. This is a show that has touched us because they are real situations that have happened to us in our lives.

  21. Carrie on May 14th, 2011 12:42 am

    So bummed over reading this. Brother’s & Sister’s has touched my life in so many ways and gave me something to look forward to during a rough time. I found myself laughing and crying over the similarities to my own siblings. Hoping it resurfaces somewhere else on tv.

  22. Patricia on May 14th, 2011 2:15 am

    I really, really like Brothers & Sisters! So much of TV is crap these days. I wonder when the execs are going to think about the “intelligent” sector. So much that is on now seems to be for idiots. Brothers & Sisters felt more like “reality” than the reality shows which are hyped up crap! BRING IT BACK!

    Your taking off Brothers and Sisters. What a waste. ABC will not stop cancelling my favorite shows. This show rocks, cancel some of the other garbage like some of the dancing and bachelor shows. What a waste . Boo for disney.

  25. Brian on May 17th, 2011 3:39 am

    Honestly, never heard of Brothers & Sisters. But “V” is awesome!!! I love that show and it has only been getting better. Now they go and cancel it! The only two shows I watched on ABC were V and No Ordinary Family, I’m very disappointed. Still disappointed they canceled Flash Forward…

  26. Kyle on June 10th, 2011 10:19 am

    I’m so sad Brothers and Sisters was cancelled! It has been my favorite show for a long time and I never missed an episode. I would love to see if another network would pick it up. The writing was so good and the characters were some of the best developed on television. Each of them had so much to give to an amazing story line. Brothers and Sisters will be sorely missed!

  27. Ricky Stencel on December 13th, 2011 5:57 pm

    This really is acquiring a bit a lot more subjective, but I considerably prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has a lot more flair, and some cool attributes like ‘Mixview’ that let you swiftly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, permitting you to navigate about exploring by comparable artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also wonderful enjoyable, letting you find other people with shared tastes and becoming pals with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your buddies are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will probably be relieved to know you can avoid the public from seeing your personal listening habits should you so select.

    OK 1st take a very good look at your self. What do you like what do you not like so significantly. Work on that which you do not like. But do not listen to other individuals their opinions do not matter only yours does. Function on having the attitude that this really is who you are and if they don’t like it they can go to hell.
