What happened ABC no balls can you not stand up to washington and the rest of the dumbasses that run this country. Did the show hit home. Last Resort was the best show on TV and you cancel it. Bring the show back and listen to the people. 9 million people watched this show. Maybe FOX can pick it up they have balls and they will not let others tell them what they can and can't do. What a show. LAST RESORT bring it back. we don't need another reality show that is scripted.

ABC you suck you cancelled a show that was well watched by many. Do you not know what you are doing? Last Resort was a show that was talked about at many jobs and what was to happen next. What happen was it to close to being true and someone was to scared to run and order more that may it might step on someones toes. Bring the show back. David from Charlotte, nc

With its fan's help Drop Dead Diva was uncancelled as an outcry of support for the show after learning it had been axed. Also CBS has uncancelled Unforgettable and will return in the summer of 2013. PERHAPS ABC could follow suit and UN-CANCEL Last Resort too!! If enough Noise is made to raise the boat once again!!

This was a great show. I really enjoyed it. I don't understand why ABC put it on opposite a number 1 rated show-Big Bang Theory. I hope they change their mind and renew it. It would also make a good mini series if they wanted to rerun it or sell it to another network.

ABC never did know a good show when they had one. I Hope some network has someone with a little intellegance and picks up the show. At least for a nother three or five seasons!! Dumb shits prob. thought a show that portrayed the millitary with honor for God and Country was just to much to handle and caved to thier left wing ideological bull shit!

I am so heart-broken about this series Last Resort being cancelled. It is a Great Show and I don't see why it is being cancelled??? I wish ABC would reconsider their decision and give it another try. This show has a spectacular cast, great drama and an intelligent premise. Why can't they see that??

Again, just like in 666 Park Ave., you are making a huge mistake. My co-workers all are nuts about this show; I work for a 7,000 person employer and I can tell you that we are all so disapointed. You had us watching religiously and now you will lose us!

ABC you need to get a grip!! Other networks are having much better programming and you are WRONG in cancelling one of your BETTER shows!! Someone needs to get a backbone and stand up at ABC and give this show LAST RESORT a fighting chance!! I don't see why ABC is not listening to all these viewers who clearly are interested in this SHOW!! It is one of ABC's BEST. Don't you know when you have a good thing? Look at what people are saying. Everyone is enjoying this smart, clever, gripping new show!! It could also go on after Revenge as a lead way into a good night of television Hello???

Looks as if this show was hitting too close to home to be OK with the present corrupt administration and ABC folded when Washington applied a little pressure.

It is a sad state of affairs when a show that is this Superb is denied further access to the public. Someone needs to rethink their strategy. I hope another NETWORK comes along and claims this show so we can continue to enjoy thought provoking intelligent television!! This is not the same old dribble that is on every other station. ABC needs to get their act together and raise the submarine to glory!!

I was hoping that ABC would change their mind and NOT cancel this show!! It is a Great show and it has drama, characters, plot, convincing characters and everything you want in a good television show. What is the problem?? For once there is a show that has a new concept with compelling story lines and Now it is going off the Air?? What Gives?? This is a rash decision and to put some stupid comic book inspired show on in its place is ridiculous!! ABC should rethink their strategy and keep Last Resort on!!!

This is a terrific show!! ABC needs to keep this on, It is exceptional with a lot of drama, and suspense. My husband and I both enjoy watching it together. The characters are excellent and very believable. It is a new concept and riveting to watch. Why would ABC want to end a show that has everything... characters, plot, story line and drama?? It is one of the BEST shows out there!! ABC needs to wake up and listen to the viewer who totally enjoy watching this show. My husband and I can't wait for Thursday nights to watch the show!!

We have enjoyed this series very much & are very disappointed that ABC would cancel one of the better shows it has. ABCdoes not have that many good shows on & I don't understand why a show with so much to offer is cancelled. Will think twice before I turn ABC on to watch a program again.

Listen to me. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE! ABC ,please tell me that this is not the result of some narrow weak minded, far left wing, girley men, critics and programmers who apparently can't see that this is , hands down ,and without a doubt ,"THE BEST SHOW ON TELEVISION TODAY" ! Stop being political about it and open your narrow mind. What are you afraid of? Did you think that Capt. Marcus Chaplin would finally wrestle with Obama, while Lt. Grace Shepard punches Hillary in the kisser? (BRING THE SHOW BACK) I love the drama and suspense; I could not wait to get home on time to feel the hair rise on my neck.

Really disappointing that this is cancelled. My whole family enjoyed it a lot. The critics panned it in the beginning and that spelled doom for this great show. Sometimes, good shows just need a little more time. Just look at Jag.

How disappointing!! Very little sex, good story, believable characters, good acting. Too bad ABC doesn't know that good television does NOT have to include homosexuality, promiscuity, and a lot of swearing!! Of course that's what ABC has become... :(

I'm afraid the realism of this show was it's undoing. The scenario portrayed in this show is too close to some current events. I love the way in which the writers have made an effort to keep political parties out of the story line. They produced an honest attempt at a drama that I feel should be given more of a chance. I do believe the scenario is one that is hard to make work for more than one season.

I think this show was the most interesting military drama I have seen in a long time. The scenarios on most of these shows have been rehashed to the point of exhaustion and it was nice to see something fresh. I am saddened by this cancellation.
