ABC Family Cancels 10 Things I Hate About You

ABC Family has just cancelled 10 Things I Hate About You. The sitcom will air the remaining five episodes of its current second season before it ends.

What happened here? When the show debuted last summer, it was popular! In fact, it was more popular than Ruby and the Rockits, ABC Family's other short-lived sitcom, and that one starred David Cassidy. David Cassidy, guys. 10 Things was on its way to becoming one of the most successful film-to-TV remakes ever! It shared just enough parallels with the movie to do it justice, yet it could also stand alone as its own brand of current events-laden rom-comedy. But sadly, ABC Family decided to bring it back at a weird time of the year (March) and post its episodes online four days after they aired on TV. Fail. And now it's joining those other shows to romp and play at that big farm in the country.

It looks like we don't deserve quality shows: as soon as some appear, they get the axe. It's much better to rotten our minds with trashy, so-called reality, shows... I hope the cast know it's not, in any way, their fault: they were great, as were the writers!

Are they crazy?this is their best show... actually this is their only good show!
It has one of the best writting on tv, comparable to ModernFamily, The Big Bang Theory, HIMYM...and the cast is flawless, best young cast on tv.
The only problem with it is the tv station that airs it, it's like ABCFAMILY did all they could so it would be canceled. They didn't aired it with their other original shows, instead they made fans wait many more months to watch the new episodes. Most people didn't know when it came back because of the lack of promotion. And they decided to air it at the same time than some of the most successful shows on tv like DWTS, House, Chuck, HIMYM...
And they make the fans pay to watch the episode online, which they don't do with their other shows.
I really hopeother network would air it, it hasa huge fan base, just look at the number of downloads of its episodes on iTunes... it just needs better promotion.
Everyone who loved the movie would love this show.

I can't believe they would cancel something like this over Secret Life of the American Teenager. That's the worst show I've ever seen in my life and it gets another season!

I'm still pissed at them for cancelling The Middleman. At the rate they're cancelling shows, you'd think they were still owned by Fox.

....ABC family has other tv shows? I really don't think they can afford to cancel this one this soon. Perhaps trying for a regular season would help them?

perhaps it can be picked up by another network... this is too good to lose.
