We need more family oriented entertainment. This family is a joyful, loving and God driven family. So inspiring to others who need to know how God can affect their lives.  We don't need more "ridiculous" families to watch destroy themselves!!

      I miss watching this family. They are sincere, warm and loving and with all the garbage on TV today, it's a program I can watch and not worry if any of the children wander in. Wonderful family entertainment to offer an alternative choice to the thousands of horrible choices on television today.

      the ladies with teens at my church come to my home and we had veiwing parties when the show was on.It opened up a lot of dialog with our teens and we had a lot of fun.My duaghter has decided after watching the Duggars and Now the Bates(the Bates are our favorite family, ones we never missed when they were on and the teens perferred the Bates)has decided to wait and do a courtship when she is ready for marriage.PLease bring the show backon and for once because it will help the youth of this courty who are searching for wolesome examples who are more conserative teens and not about the money.I think 1 show for the good of the youth to invest in our countries future would be worth 1 show.The Bates show did help my daughter choose to wait and choose courtship over dating boys in high school now.Surely her worth is worth one show and wo knows, maybe other teens might decide to wait instead of watcing teenmom.Plaese think about the future of our teeens and youth.

      The Bates family is inspiring, uplifting, and amazing. I like to be uplifting and my kids and I really miss them and the Duggars when they are not on.
