    I liked the show. Maybe they'll have some luck finding a new home.

    I would have to say that if Netflix picked it up, they would finally get me to subscribe. I really don't see how A&E could be losing money on this. As noted in The Hollywood Reporter (emphasis added): "Sources confirm to THR that the series — the No. 1 scripted show in A&E's history — will be shopped to other networks."

    It seems they are cutting back on the scripted shows, going more for unscripted.

    I would not mind more unscripted shows. It would make cutting the cord easer.

    Nothng on A&E has ever rung my bell. Give me a million bucks, I couldn't tell you the channel number if you spotted me a range of plus or minus 50. Not in my custom guide, that's for sure.

    I pay for about 250 channels, and never watch more than about 17, and there is still more than I can keep up with that is worth watching, which makes the mind boggle as to how much isn't.

    So, not seeing this show other than the pilot, I can't rule on whether it was that good or not, but this I do know, there are a couple of ABC comedies that have been cancelled that would make a ton more sense going to Netflix than this.

    Great show. People in charge do this stuff to top rated shows and I laugh. Heck USA or maybe better tnt should pick it up.

    Liked the show and its characters.

    Hope it finds a home on USA or TNT or some other big cable channel.

    I actually don't watch Longmire, but Bates Motel is actually quite good. There are times a show has to get past a few episodes for the actors to really get comfortable with the character etc. Heck, Star Trek Next Gen didn't really get good until the third season.

    This just blows goats.

    Great show! Was developing into something that could have led into a final season or could have continued.

    Longmire is one of my wife's favorite shows. Pity I can't post her remarks on A&E's decision to cancel..

    Seems like this had nothing to do with disappointing ratings, but the network's decision to dump all scripted programming.

    I wouldn't despair too much: It wasn't unusual for the series to lead cable TV viewed shows for a given week. Many networks would jump at the chance for a proven ratings leader.

    I hope it lands somewhere intact. I spent a large portion of my childhood thru teenage years between The beaches of Orange County CA and the town of West Yellowstone MT. much of the backdrop of that show, its issues, its pacing so much remind me of the area

    One of my favorite shows. There are very few shows that I watch the day they air (or at the very latest the next). It will definitely be missed.

    Advertisers not interested in this age group? I gotta wonder here. Seems my discretionary income is better now than ever before and should be up til I pull the cord and retire. Granted we probably are less fooled by the marketing gimmicks by now but are more prone to spend on things we want/need then when we were younger and smoked/drank/or chased or extra dollars away. Guess I am missing something here.

    The feeling is mutual.
