    Not likely... i think the show was kinda good, then not so bad then just another way to kill an hour... I think the season finale was not quite final, it didn't feel like a season finale, it doesn't have something that will definetily make you watch the 1st episode of the thirds season, nor anything that points to a "and they lived happily ever after" i think the ratings went down and they just didn't care about us fans anymore

    I think it has about a 10% chance (at best) of returning. The ratings are poor any way you slice it, but ABC has, in the past, renewed shows with even lower ratings. And the suits really seem to like this show, so you never know. But based on the numbers, conventional wisdom would indicate that it's a goner. We'll find out in May when they unveil their fall lineup. I'll be surprised if it's there, especially since ABC has already renewed so many other shows.

    I sure hope so!!!!  What's with all the pessimism everyone?  This show is great, loved it since the first episode.  There aren't many shows like this one that hit real issues that "thirty something" friends go through.  I hope Season 3 brings back Sarah Lancaster!!  She's missed, and these new college type girls can go.

    I really hope this show comes back...I've never missed an episode since it started! But things aren't looking good, seeing as Amanda Detmer was cast in a lead role in some pilot.

    I highly doubt it even though it's one of my favorite shows on television.

    It's not about being pessimistic; it's just about being realistic. I'd love to see the show return, but there really isn't a single good reason (from a business standpoint) for ABC to bring it back. Like it or not, this is a business...money talks. A show with Brian's ratings is a longshot at best.

    BTW, we'll find out on Tuesday the 15th. That's the day of ABC's fall schedule announcement.

    So is it cancelled for sure? I'm really not sure ...
    I live in Australia, and we're only half way through the second season-ish ... LOL
