    This is awful news. I really hope we get a resolution to the story. a 2 or 4 hour miniseries would do it. I am so sad right now.

    Damn, I knew this was coming. Let's hope that we get some resolution. Well, the creators said that they had a plan.

    A real bummer. Apparently ABC tried to find another home for it but couldn't.

    Well, the creator said we'd get resolution if the show was cancelled. So, maybe they'll tell us who Sam's father was later.

    THIS STINKS!!!!!

    But when I saw that Big Cat had been hired for a new pilot for another show I was pretty sure that this was coming!! It's so upsetting when quality is pushed out for the dung that is more popular. It's times like this I wish I loved lousy reality shows and other substandard entertainment.

    So long Knights Ridge! It was great to know you. I'm sure glad that I got the season one dvds and made my own discs of season 2. At least this way I can come and visit you in the future.

    Oh, and for my fellow Roadies, I'm Sam's father! ...........(only kidding!)

    Rip OR.

    I posted this in another message. Hopefully it will help ease the sadness. It did for me.

    Sad day indeed,

    This was a great show. I never felt like I was watching TV, I felt like I was living a book. The drama, conflict and tension was so real and that damn fake band is the sybol of everything manly. Bottom line, I bet this beats 90% of programing on ABC Family, but they still can't find a home?

    I am about done with these idiots, this is so much better than 89% of what's on TV today.

    I am so upset over this news. I don't understand why good shows get cancelled. I saw on an ABC preview for this summer that The Mole is coming back.

    Ratings for OR were fairly low. Perhaps they should've made it a summer show, where the ratings have lower expectations.

    Yeah, a summer show like The Mole. Crappy reality tv is taking over the networks. I don't mind some reality shows, but most of them are just total crap. Anyways, over on the ABC OR fan board, they are still trying to save the show in some capacity.

    I really liked this show and can't believe they ended it like that.

    Reality television is getting old and dull. It's a cheap excuse to make more money for the networks and I pray it fails miserably. I want my drama back!

    As are most of you, I am COMPLETELY upset by this news! I just saw! I have been anticipating this happening since February, but I held on hope that the show could make it back somehow!! I felt close to this show because I am the same age as most of the characters and it just felt like a good place to reflect on life on Monday nights!! But oh well, maybe I can see some more peachy reality shows with Howey Mandell as the host!! That'd be refreshing!! Gimme a BREAK!!

    Were it not for Grey's Anatomy, I'd be DONE with ABC!! As a matter of fact, BESIDES Grey's, I AM done with ABC!!

    Nice knowing you Nick, Hannah Jane, Pizza Girl, Eddie, and the rest of the guys in "The Ridge!" HATE that we won't be gettin' to see "What Goes On" with you guys on Monday Nights anymore!! HATE IT!! And HATE ABC!!
