My girlfriend and I are completely hooked on the TV show Sons & Daughters. When it didn't air last night after not airing last week, needless to say, we got a bit concerned. Especially after what happened to Arrested Development.

I did a Google News search and found an artile at The Mercury News stating that Sons & Daughters is among a whole slew of ABC comedies that are on the renewal bubble. I'm dumbfounded.

I learned tonight that Fred Goss, who plays the show's main character, is also the creator, a writer, the director, and a producer of the show. Thanks to a post over at Ramblings of a bald man, I also learned that Fred Goss is active online and that he even blogs.

At his blog, Fred points to a petition that anyone can sign online to try and keep the show on the air.

I'm personally amazed that it has even come to this. Sons & Daughters is in a league of its own in terms of reshaping sitcom comedy and intertwining it with genuine emotion that only someone encircled by a dysfunctional family (read: everyone) can appreciate. I'm anxiously awaiting episode 11 and hoping we don't see another great show go the way of the Bluths.
