    I love girlfriends so much. I would hate to lose one of my favorite shows in my personal opinion. its the one thing I look forward to every week. although this season is a little different from previous seasons with a whole new plot theme and storyline. I have came to an conclusion that it maybe the last season but the studios is waiting to give the news because its only mid season. There’s a series of facts like the poor promotion for the show, most recent tapings (most likely for the 8th season) have been frequently cancelled back to back. and hears the most fearing part the ratings are falling and I seen the list for the most definite fall 2007 prime time show lineup for the CW and Girlfriends was absent. although it was a really short list and the CW is probably still deciding on the lineup it may just be the last season depending on how there rest of this season goes. My heart jumped when I found out about the show coming to DVD (finally) but my heart will burst if the show is cancelled I understand that its just about money and girlfriends has been in syndication for a couple of years already BUT I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WILL DO IF I LOSE THIS SHOW I WAS 9 YEARS OLD WHEN THIS SHOW CAME ON (Monday SEPTEMBER 11, 2000- TOE SUCKING) & HAVENT MISSED AN EPISODE SINCE AND I JUST BOUGHT THE EXCLUSIVE UN AIRED PILOT EPISODE OFF OF eBay I can’t do it

    I would hate to see it go but it's changed. I watch every single rerun that I can (a million times) and I bought the DVD yesterday so at least I have the first season and can't wait for the others as they come out. But it has lost something so I won't be surprised if it does not return.

    What's the unaired pilot like?  Are there different actresses?

    I'd heard this year's ratings were up.

    To answer one of your questions. The tapings are canceled constantly not with just this show but others as well. This has been going on for years. Studios also don't always announce their total line-up. Also the ratings are in line with the CW. So weeks there are several million people who watch tv and then other times there are less. And more importantly there is ALOT more advertising this season than any other.

    Girlfriends is one of my all-time favorite shows. I have my DVR record the reruns even though I've seen them many times. I would hate to see it go, though all shows must come to an end. I just hope that when Girlfriends does, it will be a very good and satisfying ending. If all goes well with the season, especially with Toni gone, I think there will be an 8th season.

    The mall in my town has big Girlfriends posters promoting the show all across the mall... I thought that was nice, that's the most promotion the show has ever gotten.

    The unaired pilot are false rumors but the DVD is hella good. And I would love to see Girlfriends on for another season and a movie ;-)

    What does it mean when 'tapings are cancelled'? That the show is not ready to tape or the studio was not ready? I dont get the correlation. Thx.

    It just means that the audience will not be there. This is done alot around the finale or a special taping this way folks are surprised.

    Now that's something competely different. I already knew Girlfriends had an unaired pilot but its NOT featured in the official DVD.
