    Does anyone know?
    I really love this show. Its better then most of the TV shows on TV right now. I always watch in on lifetime at 12-1. Its such a great show.
    Do you think any company will bring it back?

    It underperformed in the ratings. It's as simple as that.

    The show was getting old and declining in ratings. Also the renewal of this show depended on the performance of How I met Your Mother (which did pretty decent the whole year) and The New Adventures of Old Christine, and if Old Christine did really badly then this might of gotten renewed but in reality the opposite happened.

    I'm 100% sure that this show is done and no one else will pick it up. But atleast with 88 episodes and 4 seasons the show has entered syndication and had a good Series Finale.

    I saw the series finale but it sort of left it open.

    88 episodes isn't that much.

    Thankfully it's enough for syndication.

    i'd  never even heard of this show until it started playing on my local syndicated tv channel. but i think its really funny and it shouldn't have been cancelled.

    I watched it while they were still airing new, I wasn't totally consistent in watching it but it's a good show. Sure it has that normal family plot, but there are a lot of good things about it. Hopefully some dvd 's will be released but I kind of don't think they will.

    DVDs probably won't come out in the near future unless were lucky but I'm sure the show will eventually.

    i'd never heard of it untill it started on lifetime wich is really CRAPPY! cuz i love the show and am mad it's over. maybe it would have had better ratings if they would have advertized the show better. it's nice if people know about it....ya, that always helps.
