    It figures. Put a decent series on then cancel it and replace it with more reality crap. Good job nbc!

  • Lisa - 2 years ago

    VERY disappointed in the network’s decision to cancel this show. SMH!

  • Joseph-Rocque - 2 years ago

    The networks keep these reality shows but when it comes to outstanding drama/comedy shows they CANCEL.. Not sure that there are any brains guiding these networks.... It's all about money, money, money and forget about the quality of a great series... Shame on them...

  • Dirothy Benjamin - 2 years ago

    Loved this well written & performed show on beautiful Tibee Island & Savanah,GA area... Hurried to get work done or home in time to see every week... NBC please consider returning the show... so many unfinished characters & such great family support & interaction on many levels show... I can't believe you had a bad turn out but this Covid time could have made a difference...
    Praying to see it come back & thank you for all that it was... even if only a tease...

  • Lisa Andujar - 2 years ago

    Why cancel this show. I personally loved it. This show has helped me deal with grief. It made 1 year on July 2 my father passed and I wish I had a support system they do. They need to bring this show back.

  • Brenda Brown - 2 years ago

    Love the fact it talks about acceptance of differences and people even as young as the children were. The challenges of addiction and what can be accomplished once you do recover. The challenge is also fighting the addiction constantly.

  • Meredith Hammond - 2 years ago

    I absolutely loved this program, it really gave families an opportunity to see and witnessed the “It takes a community to raise a kid”. I only hope that this program would continue so many folks have been touched by the program.

  • Rosie Lee - 2 years ago

    This was one of the best shows I’ve ever watched. It was entertaining, true to life, fast paced and the cast was amazing. Why does NBC put these wonderful shows on as The Village was last year also, as summer replacements when people are away and not interested at this time of year? Please rethink this one and give it another chance in the fall. I guarantee people will get hooked!!

  • Janet - 2 years ago

    This series showed how neighbors and friends become part of your family. With all that is happening right now we need this. We do not need more fake reality tv, fire, police or hospital shows. This last episode did not resolve anything. The cancelation of this just shows how the media helps pull people apart. They don't want anything good and kind on television.

  • Diana Champlin - 2 years ago

    My husband and I love this show. It was one of the few shows that we watched together. I just read in TV Guide that it got cancelled. With all the crap on tv, it is a shame that a show with amazing stories and actors is being canned. I wish NBC would give it another season. So many people don’t watch tv in the summer. Please bring it back!!

  • Rachel Martin - 2 years ago

    Such a good program when there are so few. Please give it a chance and renew for at least another year.

  • Lucretia M Castillo - 2 years ago

    I was looking for a new episode which should have aired last night and just found out about the cancellation! How sad! Please give it a Real chance!

  • Sarah DeLong - 2 years ago

    I'm sad to see this truly great show be cancelled. My hubby and I love this show and I don't think there was an episode that didn't bring me to tears. This show is a real gem and deserves to continue!

  • Tabie - 2 years ago

    I’ve read many of the comments & agree that Council of Dads was a Great family show. My family & I looked forward to watching the show. Why cancel a show that was very much real to real life family issues... And I’m sure that many people have now considered a council for there own family. Please NBC reconsider, Bring Council of Dads back for another season!!!!!!!!

  • Jerome s Pelka - 2 years ago

    Absolutely insane to cancel this show. WTF- when the dumb reality shows that are on daily which I never watch get extended. I need to be hooked up to the firestick and the major networks can kiss my fanny!

  • Carey - 2 years ago

    Bring this show back! If NBC won't pick it up, hoW about any of the streaming services? The acting was genuine & the scenery was beautiful! Please reconsider!

  • Lou Ann Clouser - 2 years ago

    Why did they cancel this excellent show?? Too many good shows get axed, but they keep the stupid reality shows & stuff not worth watching. Council of Dads was a great show, I was invested in the characters.

  • Elizabeth walter - 2 years ago

    Why do the networks continue to cancel good shows that promote kindness, love and acceptance? Once again I’m so disappointed.

  • Trudy - 2 years ago

    Please give this wonderful show a second chance. It’s one of the best shows on tv.

  • Jackie - 2 years ago

  • Kelly - 2 years ago

  • Tracey Knotts - 2 years ago

    Bring this show back! Our family loved it!

  • Sandy Andrews - 2 years ago

    Ended way too soon. I'd much rather have these types of shows on television, rather than all the garbage 'reality' shows.

  • Sylina Bolton - 2 years ago

    Please bring it back, we love this show. Give it another chance and i promise you will see that the ratings come up!!

  • judy w - 2 years ago

I truly believe if yall bring it back you will see that the ratings will increase more. PLEASE , PLEASE, give it another chance. Look at all the comments asking for you to bring it back!!!!

  • Justin Weininger - 2 years ago

    Great show sorry it won't be on it anymore this is a mistake by the network unless they're trying to put it on a streaming service so you have to pay for it shame on you NBC

  • Roy - 2 years ago

    They wanna keep supposedly reality shows( which are scripted) and just down right not entertaining but cancel a good show like this. It has everything in society right not that ppl are sensitive about and shows ppl that each and everything in your life doesn't go as planned

  • LJ - 2 years ago

    Shame on NBC for offering us such a great program and then yanking it away so quickly. With all the crap TV is broadcasting, this show was relevant and a breath of fresh air. Bring it back!!!

  • Lisa - 2 years ago

    This is the Best show!!! PLEASE bring it back!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!

  • Martha Winland - 2 years ago

    If the powers that be would watch this show, they would realize what a stupid idea it was to cancel this show. It is great family entertainment. Please bring it back!

  • LInda Perkins - 2 years ago

    I am so very disappointed that this is cancelled. I have been telling so many people to watch it and how good it is. Always looked forward to it. So tired of trashy reality shows and violence. Good wholesome, realistic stories that families can watch. Please reconsider and listen to your viewers!

  • T ross - 2 years ago

    This show should not be canceled please please please do not cancel it I look forward to Thursday’s watching it .

  • Fay - 2 years ago

    This was honestly the only show my husband and I watched every week during the recent very "slow" TV season. It is an excellent show with a very talented cast and the gorgeous Savannah scenery is a real bonus. It is comparable to This Is Us yet it sets itself apart and does it very well. I don't know what your are thinking NBC. We hope you reconsider or that another network or streaming service will quickly pick it up.

  • Beverly Simpson - 2 years ago

    Please do not cancel the Council of Dads show. I love this show because it is about family. We do not have these type of shows on TV any more. We need these family shows because there are no shows like this any more to watch. It brings to the reality of what family should be. It is about love for a family and the struggles that a family goes thru in reality. Please keep it on TV.

  • Wild Goose - 2 years ago

    Cancelling “the dads” was really stupid. I’m going to miss the whole family. Stupid.

  • Gayle Kersten - 2 years ago

    Every week I have looked forward to The Council of Dads. The shows touch on very delicate situations, and its done so well. I love how the writers have developed each character, they have made them real. I so hope this series is picked up next season. I look forward to watching every Thursday and will miss it now that the season is over.

  • Marty - 2 years ago

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed each episode with the multi-faceted story lines continuing each week. We believe it is a “This is Us” type show with good acting and enticing, diverse story lines. We are EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED that NBC has opted not to renew it. Council of Dads is certainly more enjoyable than the multitude of reality and sci-fi offerings. I truly hope NBC reconsiders it’s decision.

  • Sharon - 2 years ago

    This is an awesome show. We have dinner and a movie with this show. There is a group of us that religiously watch and we call It our council meeting. We are all devistated . Please please please don’t cancel this show. We lived it, loved it , and will miss it .

  • Nancy - 2 years ago

    I can't believe the bad decision that NBC made. This is a wonderful show. The story lines, the charcters, the scenery. Bring it back. We need more shows like this, and less reality tv. Please bring it back,

  • Tracey Shepherd - 2 years ago

    Bring it back!!! This is one of the best shows on TV. It should not be cancelled!

  • Debbie - 2 years ago

    Bring it back.

  • Vita - 2 years ago

    Bring it back????????????????

  • Linda - 2 years ago

    Hubby and I really love this show...I’m from Savannah and love Tybee and all the sites...I think the storylines were great and just beginning to develop each actors personalities..also shows the situations of real life that’s happening today...families of mixed races, gays adopting babies and transgender kids trying to define themselves..gives us the understanding of grieving while also raising children and realizing life has to go on..please give this show another chance..read these comments and put our favorite Thurs show back on...pleeaaassseee

  • Lisa E GartmanI - 2 years ago

    I look forward to the show every week I enjoyed the characters in the story line, the scenery was beautiful and comparing it to This Is Us is stupid, it was much better; you should give it a second season at the very least. I really liked the village too, what the hell is NBC doing?!!

  • Nicole Lundgren - 2 years ago

    NBC is crazy for canceling this show!! It quickly became my favorite show. What were they thinking?? Bad decision NBC! Netflix please pick it up!!!

  • Brooke - 2 years ago

    I REALLLYYYY don't understand the logic behind the cancellation of this gem of a show... It honestly makes no sense at all .. From the first 5 minutes of the very first episode, to the last 5 minutes of the final episode, it was amazing. It never lacked in entertainment - and at the same time, it dealt with actual real life issues.... It was a show that made you feel ALL the emotions - and most episodes you felt all the emotions a few different times! It was fantastic and I am so disappointed in NBC'S VERY BAD DECISION TO LET THIS ONE GO!! I sincerely hope they have a change of heart and bring it back - and if they don't, I hope someone else picks it up ; wether it be another network, or a streaming service such as Netflix, HULU, etc.... And if that happens and the show blows up huge ( like we all know it will), then it will serve NBC right for giving up on such a fantastic, real, down to earth, family show so quickly!!
    That is all.... Carry on! ????

  • Katie Hauser - 2 years ago

    Can't believe that it is not coming back. It made my Thursday nights great during trying times. Someone PLEASE bring the show back!!

  • Jane Gilmour - 2 years ago

    Very sad to see this show coming to a swift end. They sure don't give these kinds of shows much of a chance these days, do they? This one, along with God Friend Me, have left me disillusioned about good network TV. Shame on them!

  • Morrie - 2 years ago

    Love the scenery of Savannah! It was so beautiful! The show is/was fabulous! Please bring it back! I looked forward to Thursday! There are too few family shows like this.

  • Pam - 2 years ago

    So sad to see this show cancelled! This was by far the BEST show on TV! We need more shows like Council of Dads that deal with real life issues and how to deal with them and as a family. With the trash that’s on TV today and all the fake reality shows, this was a much needed show! Hopefully someone else will pick it up since NBC didn’t give it a chance.

  • Tonya and Katie - 2 years ago

    We looked forward to watching this show on Thursday evenings! Saddened that it will not be on for another season or even many more. I hope NBC reconsiders. There is still great potential for a long future for these characters!!

  • ABenton - 2 years ago

    One of the best shows on. I love almost all of the characters. The writing is good; it's set in Savannah; real life family concerns. It's too bad that NBC doesn't see the worth.

  • Lani Urbas - 2 years ago

    The very Best new show of the year! Compelling characters, great writing, full story line, so engaging. Do not let this show die, it's just too wonderful

  • L - 2 years ago

    You must reconsider! Or another network should pick this up!! We need a show that teaches the values and importance of family and those we choose as our family. It takes a village and this time you are robbing us by not letting us continue to get to know the extended Perry family. Bring it back for another season!

  • Nancy Stackman - 2 years ago

    Can’t believe NBC canceled this show. Looked forward to Thursday’s to see this show. A show dealing with family issues, family working together. Great cast. Lots of storylines not finalized. Was nice to see a show that was not one the reality shows and sports shows that leave watching undesirable. No wonder Amazon, Netflix, etc are getting more viewers. Please reconsider your decision to cancel this great show. If not hopefully another channel will pick it up. AGAIN RECONSIDER YOUR DECISION !!!

  • Robin Cannon - 2 years ago

    Bring the show back!!!!! Unfortunate NBC did not recognize a good story line. If do not pick up again, I hope another network will and will recognize the shoes worth!

  • Linda Monroe - 2 years ago

    I Love this show! I can't believe NBC isnt keeping this series. Its dropped after one single season. I would hope they would reconsider their decision. This is a great show and family friendly, not many shows today are. with everything that is really happening in this world today... we NEED THIS SHOW!! . this is a great way to see the day to day struggles of REAL LIFE ISSUES. the ONLY- complaint I have is that I dont know what happens after the storm.. will they save the crab shack? Will she make it work with Sam? What happened to Larry at the Bar? What about Anthony returning to the council of Dads and helping Theo? What about Oliver and his husband and Tess and Hampton? ... too many unanswered questions! I pray that another Network jumps on this GEM of a show and let's us WATCH AND ENJOY GREAT EPISODES TO COME!!!
    THANK YOU TO THE ENTIRE CAST YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB!! GREAT SEASON!!!

  • Jon Haas - 2 years ago

    It seems that the Major broadcast networks, particularly NBC, cancel good quality shows if they don't immediately perform. Council of Dad's is an excellent family show with good character development albeit none further. I'm saddened that this show has been canceled. Good storylines, good Storytelling & terrific cast. This is a lost opportunity for NBC to have another hit show, had it been given the time to develop more.

  • Bob - 2 years ago

    Love the show. It’s shows a lot of true values that real Family’s go thu on a every day life. Please bring back the store. Theres a lot of un answers ? And There writers are excellent in there job . Again bring everyone back. This show beats all the crap that is showing all all the others channels. Like I said it’s a mixture of family values

  • Deb - 2 years ago

    I’m disappointed to hear this show has been cancelled. I enjoyed the season and hope a network recognizes the quality of its writers and storylines and picks it up.

  • Tona - 2 years ago

    I'm really sorry that they cancelled "Council of Dads". It's a really good show. I hope it can be shopped around and picked up by some other network or streaming platform. I will continue to help and search for season 2.

  • Sandy - 2 years ago

    Loved this show. Recorded it in case I missed something and wanted to see it again. Please reconsider cancelling it!

  • Donna Yamniuk - 2 years ago

    I always look forward to what show will fill in for the summer when our regular season shows are done. This show did that and did it well. After watching it each Thursday, it left me eagerly waiting for the next Thursday. It was a really nice feel good show and I love how it show cased each individual child in the family. It would be great if it was renewed or at least do a two hour finale. The show, its actors and its audience deserves this.

  • Annette Myers - 2 years ago

    I Loved the show and I’m very disappointed that it wasn’t renewed for a second season. I would rate it right up there with “This is us”. I have several other friends that also watched it. They feel the same way. The way you left it, it could be picked up and continued for at least another season. Please RECONSIDER!!!!

  • Judy Shipman - 2 years ago

    LOVE this show. So disappointed that NBC decided to cancel. There are so many different story lines & directions this show could take. Please reconsider..

  • Annette - 2 years ago

    I'm disappointed that you're canceling Council of dads. I really liked the show. Please reconsider

  • Kim R - 2 years ago

    I absolutely LOVE this show! I am so disappointed that it is being cancelled by NBC, but not shocked because NBC doesn’t know a good thing right in front of their faces!! Please,please ,please , I pray this show gets picked up by another network!!

  • Beverly Corbin - 2 years ago

    Loved the show, more realistic family and friend situations. Hoping network will reconsider, definitely left so many storylines open to carry show forward next season! PLEASE!!

  • Barb - 2 years ago

    Loved the show but felt it finished with too many loose ends. I want to see another few episodes to find out what happened.

  • L Moody - 2 years ago

    This show was unusual and has very good story lines that covered current topics. It is rediculous to cancel a good show like this. It is so nice to see a family show and working together to solve family issue's. It is terrible none of you can see the positive feeling this show gives you when you watch it. I look forward to watching this each week. Why can't you keep a positive show like this on?

  • Robyn Wallace - 2 years ago

    This was a fantastic show! I’m really disappointed that you’ve decided to cancel. This is exactly why network television is losing out to Amazon, Netflix and all the others. You cancel the shows people want to watch and continue showing the same old reruns of Grey’s Anatomy and Bachelor crap.

  • Lisa - 2 years ago

    Loved this show and how they covered so many real today topics. Please reconsider, later timeslot, different network. Loved it and cast.

  • Frances Hollomon - 2 years ago

    With so many upsets in our lives, we really didn’t need another one! So sad this show has been cancelled. It was actually the only night I knew I had a good show on to watch. We even set the DVR to record the series on the off chance we might miss it.

  • Patty McGillin - 2 years ago

    Sorry to see this show end - too many story lines were left to be developed. Credit given for dealing with LOTS of relevant topics in informative, just and acceptable ways. I think the timing of the shows opening may have been a hindrance with all that is happening in the world today!
