Just what NBC needs. Do they have a clue? This show died years, years, years ago.

Is this show still on?!? It's time to pull an "Ole Yeller" on it and put it out of its misery.

Who knows, maybe George Clooney will see his movie career slowly die, only to return to ER, using it as his comeback vehicle. Then he can go on to years of more sucky movies as he "ages gracefully".

This show has been in a coma for several years now. Please let it die!

Well, I think it is a great show. They really improved it this year. I sure want to see it stay for a while longer.

I like ER and wouldn't mind seeing it for another year. I think they just need to wrap up the current Luka/Abby storyline. Bring Luka home & have him go to work at a private practice so Abby doesn't have to be on her own any longer. And Gregg, do I detect a bit of jealousy over George Clooney?!

I'll take ER over Grey's Anatomy any day, and I work for an ABC affliate.

I would like to see Dr. Weaver pass thru town and wind up as a patient.

I hope "Men in Trees" gains more viewers and gets renewed for a 3rd season.

I haven't seen ER in many years, so don't want to comment on how the show is creatively. And I do see the point of those who think it should end, already. However, just one look at NBC's ratings shows that they might not be able to afford to cancel it right now. It's still a decent performer in a tough timeslot. How many NBC shows can you say that for?

ER should stay on the air. The writes amaze us weekly with new storylines.
Never cancel it.

As a viewer, I've come and gone from ER over the years, and was worried that the lack of star power would hurt the show, but honestly, the people they have on the show now are doing a great job. I love Stanley Tucci and hope he stays on, and Mekhi Phifer, Scott Grimes, Maura Tierney, Parminder Nagra, Linda Cardellini... They are all doing great... Even John Stamos is growing on me now. The stories have been very good. I actually am enjoying the show the last two seasons or so, more than I ever expected. I would be up for another season!

ER should hang it up. Who is still watching this show? I haven't watched for almost 5 years. I think it's time for NBC to let go.

I happen to agree. Even my daughter gave up a few years ago.

Does anyone have a link to the list of all the writer-producers who signed that pledge? I want to see if all my favorites are taking a stand or not. Thanks.

Folks, it's not about personal preferences. The show is still delivering a decent demo and decent numbers within it, so NBC ad sales can sell it to advertisers and make good money. Like it or not, as long as you want "free over-the-air TV" (which it never really has been, by the way), those are the sole measures by which a show is on the air or not, with very few exceptions.

I hope it keeps going. It's always been one of the best shows on tv, and will be still. I tire of people saying it's no good anymore, but in the next breath saying they haven't watched it in 8 years.

Maura Tierney is the only interesting thing in ER. Ok, Parminder Nagra is also not bad.

I totally agree, Chris. I admit that I stopped watching for a couple of season after Dr. Green died, and Dr. Carter was doing his Doctors without Borders stuff. But I came back regularly the last 3 seasons, and have found the cases and presentation more compelling and interesting with a lesser-known cast than it ever was in the heydey with Clooney, Edwards, Wylie, LaSalle, Marguiles, etc. I will take Dr. Morris & Pratt over Dr. Green & Carter for interaction and entertainment value every time.
