"7th Heaven" Cancelled Because of Costs

7thheaven2.jpgEveryone was surprised and even a bit miffed when the WB announced that, after 10 years, they were canceling mega-family hit "7th Heaven."

Now ABC News is telling us the reason: money. Don't start sending in contributions; the WB says that even though it's their highest rated show, they've lost about $16 million this year. Apparently, a popular long-running show requires some pretty hefty salaries.

The last episode of "7th Heaven" will air in May. The show currently airs every Monday at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on the WB. -- Rachel Cericola

Editor's Note: As of May 18, 2006, "7th Heaven" has been picked up for an 11th season. Check out the CW's fall lineup for showdates and times.

They are going to finish out the season, so I think they will wrap everything up.

OMG!! I can't blieve this I wait every Monday and Tuesday for new eposodes of 7th Heaven and Gilmore Girls now that 7th Heaven is ending i'll die if they take away Gilmore Girls. I wish they would keep going.Too many memories...

-- Posted by: Angeie at January 20, 2006 4:00 PM

They have no plans to scrap Gilmore Girls right now. It is their number two show and I don't think it costs nearly as much... so they have a tight grip on it for now!

I really hate to see the show end. I hope they can at least get a special appearance from Mary, so the whole family can be together for the ending.

For all of you that have been posting... Apparently, the CW (a new network launching this fall when the WB and UPN go away) has expressed interest in keeping "7th Heaven" for another season.

OK well CANCELING 7TH HEAVEN HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ITS COSTS. IT WAS IN THE PAPER AND ON TV THAT SOME GIRL IN THE STATES WAS COMPLAINING TO SUE 7TH HEAVEN BECAUSE IT WAS TOO MUCH ABOUT GOD AND SHE DIDNT THINK THAT THERE SHOULD BE A SHOW ON THE AIR THAT WAS SO INTO THE JESUS THING AND ALL. SO WHO EVER WAS COMPLANING ABOUT THAT WELL I THINK U SHOULD GO TO CHURCH AND FIND OUT ITS GOOD TO PRECH ABOUT AND GET GOD IN YOUR LIFE. GOSH I WAS SOO MAD WHEN THEY CANCLED THAT SHOW. IV WATCHED EVERY SIGNLE SEASON ALL THE 10 YEARS. SO THANKS ALOT

I love the show and I even watch the reruns just to keep seeing it. I was very upset when I learned the last show was left with Lucy pregnant with twins, Mary pregnant with twins, with Matt and Sara pregnant with twins and with the hint that Sandy's baby maybe being Simons. I even cried at the end of that show because I loved the show so much I just couldn't believe that it was ending with all that good happy family matters that would not be showed. That we the fans of the show wouldn't get to see all the new babies that were coming the happiness that Eric and Annie would be to have so many new grandchild. I loved everything about this show it was a show I could watch with any of my children younger ones to older because it was a real honest family show and there isn't many shows like it these dsys that anyone, any age could watch. I love the show so much I hope they find a way to keep it for 10 or 20 more years. Just keep it going with the kids and then with the grandkids and even with there kids just as long as they keep everything as it is now about family a very loving happy family that has an example to people that loving families and chruch families are good, caring, and a good way to live and it sets a good example for a good life!

My daughter and I watch 7Th Heaven every night on the Hallmark channel from 6pm - 7pm it is the best family drama I've seen in a long time, we are in Episode 8 as we are in the UK (Scotland)please don't cancel this show as this seems to be the only show that we can watch as a family unit. Why not focus on Lucy and Kevin as they start their new life together after all Lucy is training to be a minister you can then follow her's and Kevin's family ups and downs. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE KEEP 7TH HEAVEN ON THE AIR.

-- Posted by: Neda at June 16, 2007 9:57 AM

Hey, is all this true? Sad, sad, sad, I really like this show. I've read all the posts and this is what I think:
7th Heaven is really great show and it would be really pitty if it ends, so what if there is some people which are against this show. What I wanted to say with this is that there is good reason for continue this show 'cause everyone can learn a lot from this show. For example, me. I really learnt a lot and now I have a completely diferent point of wiew for many things. What I like about the show is that it isn't like any spanis shows (spanis shows are about imaginary situations) but here in show 7th heaven deal with real issue on aid awarness and family demastic violence and homeless and other issue like that are really touching. The true fact is that this show changes people lives, because this show changed me in better person. Please keep it on the air.
