I was extremely disappointed when you removed Body Electric as I have been doing this workout 6 days a week for the last 15 years. At first you replaced the Sunday timeslot with Allaire Back fitness which I tried and Body Electric does more for my back than the new program. Margaret Richards has always been ahead of her time, has the most unique workout and has been a staple of Public television stations across the country. Now, as of January 1, 2015, you have removed her completely. What did you replace her with?! Another dime a dozen Yoga show. The line up starts with Priscilla's Yoga, now the new Happy Yoga sitting in a chair which I find very boring and doesn't deserve to be called a workout (you already have Sit and be Fit so why another), followed by at least 2 more Yoga variations. Why have 5 Yoga shows in a row? Why have that many at all?! Give your viewers some options. Body Electric has 20 years worth of shows that could be aired and she's working on making more. It is the best variation that offers options for all fitness levels and has the best warm up, a mix of Yoga, Pilates, and light weight lifting, and a cool down. Unless you have plans to bring her back, you have lost a 6 day/week viewer/supporter.

I just found Body Electric again and am so sad to see it discontinued. Sounds like you are working on getting it back. I can only hope that you are successful. I know that Margaret is trying to make more episodes, but we need her oldies in the meantime. Thanks for working on getting her back on!
Love this program! I am 69 years old and it helps keep me agile, fit, toned, and looking forward to the next episode! The pace and extent of exercise is great for me and for those much younger. Keep up the great work, Margaret. I highly recommend this program for all women 40, 50, 60, and beyond. Stay young!
We are glad you enjoy Body Electric. Unfortunately we received word that all rights are set to expire December 31, 2014. At this time no indication has come from the producers about re-upping rights and no new shows are being produced. Hopefully you will enjoy some of our new exercise programs like Happy Yoga and Allaire Back Fitness.
We’re sure many of our viewers will miss Body Electric.
Thanks for watching and supporting programming you value.
