Get XXX (Widescreen Special Edition) on DVDWell ABC has cancelled Day Break. The remaining seven episodes may show up on ABC.com at some point but since the show has been de-listed from the website and no longer shows up in the networks list of shows, I wouldn’t put to much hope in that. Only 13 weeks and you will find out everything about what is happening except it only lasted six. Pulling the rug out from under yet another TV show fan base. I don’t understand the networks. It is like they are trying as hard as they can to alienate as many viewers as they can as fast as possible. I hope is does make it out online or is released via DVD as I really liked the show and thought it was very well done. What do you think of ABC and the cancellation of Day Break?
