Are you kidding me? It took so long for one of the major networks to come out with a TRULY FUNNY comedy and ABC was finally the winner with with this one!! Hoping our comments matter & that they'll reconsider.

I too love this show and all the characters. I agree that it does a great job of representing this era in a realistic way much like I remember things being in the 70s.

I would very much like to see the sitcom return next season as it was one of only a very few new shows this season to really capture my interest. I find it frustrating when good shows that can be enjoyed by many viewers are cancelled to make way for shows that are characterized, scripted, and marketed to appease only the certain sector(s) of the viewing population that the broadcasting companies believe will make their network(s) appear more politically correct and/or of greater social awareness.
However, the reference to Hillary Clinton fails to support the argument because Hillary actually did win the vote of the population as a whole but lost the election because of the electoral college vote distribution; which made me feel like some votes, including mine, just didn't count. Just as I feel that my like, and the like of others, for this TV show just doesn't count either because the network has decided the viewers as a whole don't matter, and only the opinions of certain sectors of the viewer population should be of concern to them.

absolutely accurate and very pc from what it was like at least for me I love the show and how the characters work with one another however ABC like in the past dose not know the difference from night or day or up from down, they have now idea on how to run a broadcasting company. Altho I voted for Hillary Clinton, the direction ABC is going (more dominate female television programming)
as this country has proven
they like Hilary Clinton will lose...

Why why would you cancel this show? It was a clean, funny show in which it show family values.

I am surprised this show was cancelled. It was funny and we liked the retro style. The mom was sadistically hilarious. So reminiscent of 1970’s living.

Loved this show. It really sucks that they kill off the good clean shows and leave the crap on!!
