That is so awesome about Breaking IN…it’s one of the funniest new shows to come along on FOX in years…it’s a MUCH better show than Raising Hope, which despite all odds was renewed. Bret Harrison not only deserves a great show like this, he deserves to not get it pulled out from under him prematurely like Reaper was. As a DISH customer/employee I’ve been re-watching episodes of Breaking In (the Goonies ep was my favorite so far) as well as hundreds of other shows. http://bit.ly/dJzWgo Check it out!

Hopefully the network saw Michael Rosenbaum on Attack of the Show Wednesday promoting the show even though it was supposedly canceled earlier that day. He was kind of pissed but maybe the show will return after all.

You're so right on! They are probably wishing they never canceled "24." And the remaining two good shows they had to follow "24" are now canceled. Their idiots.
