    The show hasn't been yanked but it doesn't look like it will be on for more than 13 episodes.

    It's not cancelled. The remaining" episodes are going to air, and just because they don't pick up the "back 9", does not mean it will be cancelled.

    It's certainly not a good sign, but remember ABC has 4 other shows they have yet to premiere, so they probably just don't need those episodes. The president of the network, Steve McPherson, loves the show, and the critics love it as well. Kristin Veitch, the "reporter" who broke the story, is just trying to get a rise out of people to compensate for her lack of ability. 

    I don't want to give you false hope, though. The chances that it gets a season 2 are falling each week. Next week will be crucial. If it does significantly better for the rest of the season in the new slot, it will probably be renewed. But if not, it's done for.

    The most we can do is continue to spread the word and hope the ratings grow in the earlier timeslot .

    I hope it does get better ratings in its new slot and does well in the future because its the best new comedy that ABC has got.

    It might be the best ABC has got but that's only because ABC has a big pile of poo. Cancel this!!

    This show isn't that bad, its a relatively new concept for a comedy (a group of theives who aren't really that great at what they're doing) Lately the new comedies have the concept of group of friends reuniting or a group of 20 year olds living together.

    I really hope they don't cancel it. I love this show, it's been far too long since an original and funny network sitcom has come along. Though I seem to have bad luck with ABC. Every time a new show comes along I enjoy on this network, it gets cancelled.

    American Idol was the thing that was killing this show and I hope it improves in its 8:30 timeslot away from idol, if it doesn't ABC will probably cancel it.

    It improved by about 2 million viewers last night. Its retention of "George Lopez" wasn't great, but usually the longer a show is paired with another, the better its retention gets.

    There's still hope, guys.

    Well George got 7.7 million and Knights got 5.2. Neither show did great but atleast it was a slight improvement over last week. Hopefully more people will watch the show despite the fact that Wednesday at 8 and 8:30 is very competitive and is more favorable toward Dramas than Comedies.

    I really wanted this show to do good. I loved Donal on Grounded for Life, and was hoping he was going to have another funny show.

    Last nights episode was really great, lets hope ABC doesn't pull it. I want ABC to atleast air all of the episodes and then we'll see what happens in May.

    I hope it won't be cancelled, but I have to admit it just hasn't much "oomph". The cast, however, is awesome. Much better than a show like The Class. I hope that's enough to save this series.

    I know ABC won't pull the series now since theres no point and really nothing to replace it with (except Notes From the Underbelly) but I know they probably will air all 13 episodes and then decide whether or not to renew the show.

    ABC will "burn off" the remaining episodes in the 8:30PM time slot, then it just wont appear on the Fall 2007 schedule since they were already ordered. They will probably put something else in its time slot after the final episode airs at the end of March or early April.

    Yeah exactly, either George Lopez and According to Jim repeats or the new show Notes From the Underbelly. Unfortunately like last season I dont think any of the new sitcoms will make it for next season.

    I am surprised that they were even considering doing 22 episodes

    13 is the standard number for mid season shows
