NBC keeps saying it is bringing back MISS MATCH but there is no sign
of it on the summer lineup.  I am way past the age demographic but
LOVE the show.  Is there any update on the future of this series?

I'm bummed, too, Alexis.

I'm afraid this delightful show has received the axe. On Monday May 17
NBC announced its fall lineup -- and "Miss Match" has been canceled.

See San Francisco Chronicle's TV critic Tim Goodman's column of May 18:

And, this May 18th article by Robert P. Laurence, TV Critic for the
San Diego Union-Tribue: 

Btw, not only did NBC dump the charming "Miss Match," but they've
ordered up an American version of the instant classic "The Office." (I
have no hope that that very British show can be translated into
American; I just can't imagine it.)

I'm crossing my fingers that tomorrow Fox will give "Arrested
Development" a 2nd season.

More and more I use my TV to watch DVDs (including great TV series on
DVD), not the current fare of gross-out reality shows and dim-witted

Sorry to give you the bad news.

Thanks for the kind rating and tip!

Re: your question about what you can do to protest, I'm afraid there
isn't much that can be done now that the axe has officially fallen.

Try voicing your displeasure here:
at NBC's feedback site. 

As long as you're contacting NBC, you might also want to ask if
they're going to release the series on DVD.

According to this fan site/episode guide compiled by Devon Tudeski:
a total of 18 episodes were taped; several never made it to air.

Btw, I did some Web searches to see if another network might be
interested in picking up the series but, sadly, I've found nothing to
indicate that might happen. What a shame.

With GA's days dwindling down to a precious few, I'm looking at some
of my old answers and I found this howler:

"[N]ot only did NBC dump the charming "Miss Match," they've ordered up
an American version of the instant classic "The Office." (I have no
hope that that very British show can be translated into American; I
just can't imagine it.)"

This may explain why NBC ignored my application for Head of Programming.

Thank you.  If there is an avenue of protest?

I'm amazed that NBC never showed the remainder of the episodes!  Over
here in the UK we have a satellite channel called Living TV and they
have been showing Miss Match, and they have just finished showing all
18 episodes.
To be honest the later ones haven't been as good because they tend to
focus mainly on the (annoyingly contrived) relationship between
Michael and Kate and Adam, but it's still a warm, funny, feel-good
show and NBC should at least have shown the remaining episodes.
