7th Heaven resurrected

By Colin Mahan

May 12, 2006

This was supposed to be the last season of 7th Heaven. The expensive show, which had run for 10 seasons, was a casualty of the UPN/WB merge that is creating The CW.

Mediaweek reports that The CW has received an infusion of new cash from its corporate parents, CBS and Warner Bros., and will bring the show back for at least 13 episodes this fall.

Heaven, starring Stephen Collins as a minister, is the longest-running family drama in television history, surpassing The Waltons' nine seasons. The show averaged 5.2 million viewers last season, making it The WB's most-watched series.

    I missed 7th Heaven..Im glad it did come back one last season. 11 years for a sitcom/drama is very rare. It was a great family show and did touch point on real life situations and themes. If only Mary and Simon came back.

    I was crushed when the network canceled my favorite show. When I saw the announcement for the new season I ran around the house jumping for JOY. THANKS FOR BRINGING IT BACK!!!!

    I think this has been one of the most wholesome shows around and I hope that it will be around for many years to come. It's not often that we have a good healthy show on the t.v. I wish that there were more family shows on for good examples. Yes there have been real life issues but hey, it is good how they figure things out with out blood and guts all over the place. also whoever does the ratings should take a look at why kids do what they do in real life, they learn it from the programs that we adults provide for them. thank you. for letting me make this comment.

    how can they make haley duff a regular person on the show, if they don't even have simon on there? who all is on it anyway?

    your wondering why they are bringing it back. Well heres a little info:



    "The show averaged 5.2 million viewers last season, making it The WB's most-watched series. "



    "is the longest-running family drama in television history, surpassing The Waltons' " Tv is all about money not the shows. If the show is awesome and is not bringing in the money, Its gone.



    Its really simple

    7th heaven coming back is retarded. it only drew a large ending audience because the show was supposed to be over, and now they are gonna come back without mat, mary, simon, or ruthie this year. sure they may make quest appearances, but its just not the same. if anything, they should have just took lucy and kev and made a spinoff--the way they are bringing it back is just DUMB
