MEN IN TREES Cancelled

With this evening’s unfortunate news [courtesy of TV Guide's Michael Ausiello] that MEN IN TREES run on television has been officially cut short by ABC, this TV Addict thought it only appropriate to rerun our recent edition of ‘The Backlot.’

Thanks to reader Todd W in NC for the Tip!

    I sincerely agree with each and every comment from above, and it is October and people are still writing in about Men in Trees. What is wrong with you, ABC? You have to know that Men in Trees is a great show for fans to still be writing in about it. You really need to reconsider your decision and bring it back on the air. It has such a following of loyal fans and you have to know that it would have gotten more fans then you could have imagined, I am sure. I would also like to know who has the power of deciding what shows stay on the air and what shows are cancelled. Because all they are doing is abusing the power they have and they do not know what they are doing and do not deserve their job. I could go on and on about this but I am sure that it will not do any good. It really does not make a whole lot of sense, does it?

    Maybe if enough of us keep this going on bring Men in Trees back I think the idea of anther network picking it up is a great idea. I’d follow for sure. Canceling Men in Trees was a huge mistake, like some of the other people said it didn’t have any killing going on, no reality and it was okay for a tween to watch. Bring it back or one of yu other networks pick it up. If possible I’m going to suggest that to Lifetime or Oxygen or any one of them anyone care to join?

    I can’t see how they canceled this show, it was awsome. I think that canceling Men in Trees was a dumb move on the networks part. I love the show and have missed it since it has been gone. I hope another network picks it up.

    You’ve got to be kidding me!!! I’ve been waiting for MIT to come back on for Fall and are you serious? Last season they said “Don’t worry everyone, we’re not going to cancel it” Now it’s back to being cancelled!?? I said it before and I’ll say it again – the ABC exects who made this decision should be fired. Maybe I can talk to my cousin who is an exec on another ABC show and see if he knows anyone who can help……

    It’s great to hear that so many other people loved Men in Trees. It was definitely one of the best, if not the best, shows on TV. it’s so true that the networks don’t give the good shows a fighting chance. So many shows are cancelled after only a few episodes….how does that give the networks a true measure of how a show is doing? A show like Men in Trees draws in the viewer in the first five minutes and they’re hooked forever. Please bring the show back or at the very least, release it on DVD. ABC, if you’re going to cancel an awesome show like this, at least make it available on DVD for the die hard fans to watch over and over again.

    I really loved men in trees,I think it was a stupid decision to cancel the show… That was one of my favorite shows and I was waiting for it to return, but now NO!!!! this sucks… ABC really needs to get their act together… And come on give us back Men In Trees, it was a good wholesome show….I am very disappointed…

    ABC SUCKS……GIVE US BACK MEN IN TREES………….IT WAS MY FAVORITE SHOW!!!!!!! BRING IT BACK..BRING IT BACK….

  • Tania

    I am so bummed to hear Men in Trees is no more, I LOVED it and it was my favorite show since Northern Exposure. Please bring it back!!!! Maybe another network?

  • Mary

    I am sad to hear that MIT’s has been cancelled yet totally ridiculous shows stay on the air. I guess that either the network or the majority of viewers are not intested in heartwarming stories with non violent characters. Hopefully another network will pick it up. I believe there is still a good size audience for this show.

    Oh man I can not emphasize how UNHAPPY I am that ABC cancelled MIT. This is/was my FAVORITE show, it was actually the first show that I looked forward to every single week (when I could find what time and day it was being showed). Are you serious?! All these stupid over played and over hyped reality shows, who gives a crap about them! Has anyone noticed that thats the only crap theyre putting out now is stupid freakin reality shows??!! Why because your too lazy to keep up with all the writing and producing and directing of an amazing show with depth, good actors/actresses, a beautiful setting and story line?!?! I am not watching your network anymore thats for sure, and the least ABC can do is release MIT on DVD so all of the many MANY people who enjoyed the show can watch it at home. You know since you decided to screw around with the show and move them around so much that it never gave the show a chance to continue building a loyal fan base?! Yea ABC you are ridiculous. Keep just thinking about money and thats it, its what you do best.

  • Cort

    I only have one thing to say. This is unbelieveable….canceling “men in trees” and ABC is still airing “lost”!???!!!! REALLY??!!!? Of all shows to cancel and they picked one of the BEST shows on ABC. This is outrageous!

    yes i agree with all of you men in trees was a good show and abc should bring it back and get rid of the shows that suck but the only way we will get or show back is we all stop watching abc then maybe they will listen

    It’s typical for television to cancel a program like Men in Trees, so they can put filth on like, Bimbos of Beverly Hills or other shows that are uterly disguisting to watch. That’s the mentality of the village idiots of ABC, NBC and other net works that would rather put shows on tv that teach our children immoral views. The stupider the show, the better it is for them. I’m from the old shcool. TV was great back then, but that’s also when we had morals and taught our children morals. To ABC, CBS, and NBC, try that on for size. But your probably to stupid for that. So keep running the filth your used to.
