I LOVED THIS SHOWRating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

It always seems that the best shows always go away never to be seen again. This was one of the best, heartfelt, moving programs that I'd seen in such a long time. Till this day I have not found another show that makes me say "sorry but I gotta get home to see my show". I did that all the time when Any Day Now was on the air. I could not be interrupted. The show would always leave me wanting more. Read more
