Well, CBS does it again. Afraid to spend a dime of overhead, they keep the cheapo cheap cheap reality hysteria and milk it for all they can. How long will advertisers be suckered into paying for cheapo when they actually pay for primo?

That's really disappointing! It was a wonderful show, there are so many trashy shows on prime time these days and far too many reality shows. Golden Boy was entertaining and actually had a moral sideline to it's series, something sorely lacking in many of today's offerings.

I can't believe this was cancelled! It was a great show! This is why I am afraid to get interested in new shows. So many that I loved in the past were cancelled; this one, The Defenders, Shark. Just a few that come to mind.

CBS, it is one thing if you want to hide the truth in your news programming; but the least you could do is give us entertaining drama! Golden Boy and Vegas were two of the best programs on TV in a very long time! Dump some of the crappy reality shows and those horrendous daytime talk shows! No sense blaming the advertisers either. Most of us either find something to do during commercials or just mute them, or record the programs so we can skip over the ads anyway!

Just found out that Golden Boy has been cancelled after ONE season. I have been waiting all summer long to see the Fall previews, but not one for Golden Boy. This was a good show from the start, showing everyday life and being so realistic. Not sure how after one season that you can make a decision to cancel, what a waste of time and money. My time and money to be exact.

you have got to be kidding????? this is the worst decision CBS has made... the shows on CBS NCIS, Elementary, Person of Interest AND GOLDEN BOY were the only ones worth watching...reality (which is really NOT REALITY should be banned) this the worst concept ever originated....is CBS going to fall into the ranks of all the other networks with BAD decisions????

I agree with all of you. They finally came up with a show with significant character development and then drop it. Reality TV or sitcoms are for the birds (bird brain sized people). It must have been too difficult to main the quality of script. Why else would they drop a good show. It was just too hard for them to continue !

I can not believe CBS canceled this show. Golden Boy. I thought it was wonderful. there are far to many "reality" shows on TV. We need more series with somegood stories in them. there a lot of mature adults that do not watch the reality shows. the show was not on that long, give it another chance. I think the networks give up on new shows too quickly!!!!

I, too, am stunned that Golden Boy was cancelled by CBS. The cast was well-cast, and the episodes were thought-provoking as the older cop/younger cop interacted in not only the cop situations, but also in life situations. Truly, I'd like CBS to reconsider. There are so many inane shows on TV full of smut and slut. I've now limited my viewing to shows which provide some life-lessons and interactions rather than embarassing sexual content.

How stupid can you be CBS. "Golden Boy" was an entertaining and educational show and you cancel. The good shows get cancelled and the trashy reality shows like "Big Brother" and the slutty shows like "Two and A Half Men" and "Rules of Engagement" keep going. Get you head outn of the sand and bring back "Golden Boy".

How stupid can CBS be! A good show like "Golden Boy" is put on the air and cancelled after one season for junky reality shows and slutty series like "Two and A Half Men" and "Rules of Engagement". Get you head out of the sand CBS and bring back "Golden Boy". "Golden Boy" not only was entertaining but educational; but I guess it's better to watch ridiculous shows like "Big Brother" which shows people at their worst.

Yes, how do we get it back? I've been mad/depressed about it. I absolutely loved that show. It had a wonderful ensemble cast, and the acting was great. Maybe CBS doesn't know that Theo James has the lead in an up-coming movie from an adaptation of a VERY popular book trilogy--DIVERGENT. Believe me, he will be a BIG fan favorite when that comes out. You'll be sorry! Please somebody pick it up. CBS didn't give it a chance. We want it BACK!

What the heck is wrong with CBS? They don't recognize a good show when they see one? "Golden Boy" was one of the best show on this season. I don't want to see another dumb reality show where people act like pure fools. You should bring this show back. Every time a quality show comes on, it gets axed. CBS needs to bring this show back.

How do we get it back on? This was another really good show removed but WHY? Who keeps making these decision to take a show off just when people have become attached to it, looking forward to seeing the next episode? I get so sick of most of those reality shows. Some people may like raunch, but I prefer quality TV shows like "Golden Boy." Was it CBS who also cancelled "Unforgettable"? CBS, if you only keep bringing on new shows just to cancel them, perhaps you should hang it up and get out of the TV business.

I am beyond disgusted with this news. I was so happy to have another favorite tv show to add to NCIS and this was not a cookie cutter version of a popular show but a GREAT show standing on its own. WHY was it cancelled??? This show was very tastefully done. A good show with a different twist. Why not at least give it enough time to show its true popularity before giving it the ax??? Please reconsider this. All I can hope is that another station will be smart and wise enough to pick it up. Just like the series "Numbers" a few years ago. Another great show to go. I'm beginning to hate CBS! Why not scrap one of the other crappy shows???

How can CBS cancel a great show like "Golden Boy"? The cast is perfect, the storylines are always so compelling, and the show is unique. The writers of this show are very talented, and I have this DVRd so that I don't miss one episode. This show WAS NOT given enough publicity....audiences really didn't even know about it. I told several of my friends how amazing this show is and, after watching one episode, they were hooked just as I am. This show is heads above so much of the fluff that's called "comedy" ...usually these stupid sit-coms has laugh tracks because the network has to clue the audience in as to when to laugh. I only hope another network has the intelligence to pick this award-winning up and give it time to garner an audience. Another comment was that this show is a WINNER and I am in complete agreement.

Don't do this. How can you cancel a show with so much potential? The story line is so real, the actors are wonderful, and it keeps you waiting in anticipation of the next episode. Seems to me that CBS better CANCEL the staff members who are making decisions like this. This show is a W I N N E R, as is VEGAS, which also got canceled. Bad judgment call indeed.

How can you cancel a show as excellent as "Golden Boy"? On top of that, we will never know how the "Golden Boy" became the Police Commissioner of NY and what happens to all the characters in this story. This is absolutely rotten as if I were reading a good novel and suddenly, half-way through, the book disappeared? Shame on you CBS for throwing at us stupid dull shows with just blood anfd gore and reality shows and not finding space for good shows like "Golden Boy" and "Vegas"!!! Please contine "Golden Boy" even if you have to show it on Saturday morning!

I think its a disgrace, that you have cancelled this fabulous show. The concept was so new and unique, The stars were outrageously good. The storyline was both new and interesting. The idea of showing a currant story with a twist of 7 years from now was so compelling. I've been raving about this show to everyone I know, so when I heard you were cancelling it, I was devasted. Please, please bring it back. Stephanie
