ABC Family Cancels Make It Or Break It

ABC Family is taking the spring out of Make It Or Break It's step, by axing the show. The cancellation was confirmed by show creator Holly Sorenson, who tweeted out the bad news:

This is bad news for fans of the gymnastics drama, but a great opportunity for me to overuse a ton of gymnastics puns. After three seasons of bounding about ABC Family's schedule, Make It Or Break It will make its final dismount on May 14. The show flipped onto the scene in June of 2009, and initially earned top scores from viewers. Season 2 was a balancing act, but ABC Family opted to renew the series for a Season 3 short routine of eight episodes. But as the series progressed, it tumbled in the ratings, was accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs, and began holding up liquor stores.

And the judges give that last paragraph a 3.5, 4.2, and a 2.3. Damn you, Russian judge.

So stupid they canceled this show. They do not care about fans just about how much money they are going to make. We spend three years watching this show and we never get to see the ending. It's like watching a movie with no end. Who won the freakin gold, where is emilee and damon? So not fucking fare!! stupid abc family

This is a bunch of crap! I love that show! I think they should be still playing it. THEY CAN'T JUST SHOW THEM GETTING INTO THE OLYMPICS, BUT NOT THEM AT THE OLYMPICS. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD DO THAT. I'M DONE. OFFICIALLY DONE WITH TV, CRITICS, PRODUCERS, AND ABC FAMILY. DONE.

I don't understand why they stopped the show it was a really inspiring show that really relates to people and the a lot of the topics was based on some everyday living it happens everyday in this world we live in every episode of this show i watched brought tears to my eyes people really struggle and can relate to each of the girls in that show and things like what the ROC girls went through effects people in real life, that show delivered several messages such as love courage faith strength and gave the message to no matter what u went or going through never give up and its a shame that they took it off i hope they find it in they heart to realize that the show wasn't hurting anyone but making them stronger the problem with this society now is that people are scared to talk about everyday life or even speak the truth instead the wanna have shows that has no message at all they need to grow up just cause you judge doesn't mean your judging right................Thanks my opinion

Thats bull!! I think they shouldve let the show do the 4th season! Finish a damn show for once! At least mention Emily! And end it after the Olympics! Why do shows always have to leave cliff hangers?! Sometimes its exciting but times like these, you really want to know what happens!!!

So disappointed that they cancelled this show. At least let us see an actual full season, or at least go to the Olympics. I hate that they cancel shows with a cliff hanger, producers should be penalized for stupid ending such as the way they cancelled this show!!!!!!

Eight Epiosodes? Is not a season. 20? Yes. I heard they cancelled because Emily got pregent and she was the whole point of the show. Honestly I didn't even like her that much! Payson , Lauren & Kaylie !! How could they end it like that? Did Payson win a gold metal so Sasha could have his back? How's Lauren? Why would they end it like that??!

Eight episodes is hardly a season... I was hoping the series would conclude with them winning gold at the Olympics! How could they end it in the middle like this?

There are millions of people out there who love this show! I don't know why you would end a series in the middle of a season, but once we know there will be no magic left. After all the magic is in the mystery, and once the second part of the season is revealed then we won't be able to sit there and wait. Wait until we know what's happened. I hate and love how it ended, as it does let our imaginations run wild on what happens next. I hope they will uncancel in the future, or maybe make a movie of how it all ends. After all, if they made a movie it would be a great way to end a fantastic series.

Make it or break it shall always have a place in our hears.

Why not finish the story? They should have at least put an episode where they do a run through the final weeks before the Olympics and show what happens once they get there. I mean, yeah they want to hype up for the Olympics and they are soon, but it's a show; make something up! Not fair to the fans guys! You left us hangin'!

The actress got pregnant in real life so her "teen pregnancy" on the show was just a way to get her off the show entirely.

Finally! I couldn't stand this show from the first moment it aired! I called it "Chuck it or Suck it" after awhile since most of the girls were snobby, cocky sluts and the others were bulimic. Just like "Secret Life" is called "Ho show" in my house, however that show is somewhat hilarious and interesting and this one just wasn't.
