The Shonda Rhimes drama ends after five years on the air.
October 19, 2012
ABC has cancelled Private Practice after deciding not to order the back nine episodes of the current sixth season, which will now be 13 episodes in length. The medical drama, originally spun off of the still-going-strong Grey's Anatomy, has aired over 100 episodes since premiering in 2007.

I'm very disappointed that yet another great show has been cancelled. I'm going to end up not watching tv at all anymore if the networks keep cancelling all my favorite shows and adding more and more of this reality crap! I can't stand reality tv. I have been a Grey's fan since day one and still am and I loved Private Practice just as much!! I didn't think you even did the last season justice especially the series finale, which you left hanging!! I was left angry and in shock that that was how it ended. And for Tuesday nights I now have nothing to watch but Body of Proof now since Smash has been cancelled as well.

I am so shocked I really enjoyed private practice. All good things must come to an end I guess. Why? And I hope shondra is going to at least start something new. Her creativity is amazing.

Private Practice has been my all time favorite and I am sick that it will not be returning. I loved the drama without the violance, and it had such a great personal story line. Please bring it back.

I watched this program on Hulu, and I somehow did not get the message that it had been cancelled. Imagine my great disapointment when I found this out just recently. I am so sad,I don't like that it just went off the air with story lines still in play. I can't believe it was one of the lowest rated television shows on the air. Do we really need another reality show or murder investigation show? I am very disapointed.

I had gotten away from watching this show for the past two seasons so I am a person who partially contributed to the end of this show.
For me personally the show was going nowhere new or interesting. It was Grey's Anatomy Lite and I drifted away from Grey's some time before I gave up on Private Practice.
For me the shows were sometimes too infused with sexual subject matter. I was sick of caring who was sleeping with who or how good or bad it was. I doubt people in these professions are anywhere near as concerned with their libidos as the people on these shows.
The shows beyond that seemed to drift into predictability and lacked any real imagination. The shows to me needed to do some reinventing and take at least somewhat of a new direction.
I hate for you all that this show was a favorite but it would seem others have tuned this show out for whatever reason.
Grey's Anatomy has lasted beyond my interest in it but so did this show. Still if the writers of Grey's don't try to keep it fresh without it remaining repetitive it will come to a close sooner than later.
Most won't mind the nonsense overkill sex stuff though. I'm just tired of that on my TV shows.

Sooooooo Disappointed!!!....one of only 2 shows I dedicated my time to. Take Grey's Anantomy away and I may as well turn my TV off forever!...Please bring it back :'-(
I love love loved this show!!! If I weren't home, I would have my DVR set, and many times watched it over and again. Just nothing on TV worth watching but these 2 shows, then you take one away....so sad!!!
