Smash was one of my favorite shows of all time.
Still upset about terra nova, and finder. Maybe if enough people vote it 5 stars on Netflix they’ll do more seasons, like they did with arrested development.
Reality shows are ridiculously dumb. Keep the well written shows and stop this reality show crap already!

The NBC shows we all watch are still there….We love all the Law and Order shows because they are done with class and true grit. We are so tired of all those low quality, empty TV shows that come and go. What happened to the writers of the shows that have good quality story lines. My family is also so tired of the negative, dark side of life shows about vampires, aliens, etc. that aren’t truly believable that the American audience is really tired of spending their extra time trying to watch these untalented empty quality shows. Surely we can find some writers that still know how to write good quality shows that the whole family can watch again and bring about good positive nature to our country again. Do you truly not realize how much influence you have on our people? Use it wisely!!!

Thank God Chicago Fire got renewed. ( and of course SVU)

But then, I find it sooo hard to believe that a network that has the insight to recognize how great those 2 shows are could go so wrong with 2 of the best shows on the air – Smash the best ever, wonderful cast, fabulous guests, memorable music – what are you thinking. And moving it to Saturday – makes no big difference to me, I DVR if I intend to go out or catch up on mu iPad, but historically isn’t Saturday one of the worst nights for Prime Time TV? Many of us are very upset about this decision. I truly hope you reconsider your rash move.

And deception – great show. You got us all invested in these people and now you are going to just leave us hanging. I am so disappointed. Really so inconsiderate on your part NBC!

I still don’t get how NBC could go from asking for an ENTIRE season of The New Normal and then AXE it….That was the WORST decision, NBC :(

Agree. There are morons in charge. Still in diapers and CLUELESS about what Americans watch. Using Nielson as a ‘guide’ for who is watching is as accurate as the electoral collage is for counting votes.

With these mini minds in charge…network TV is doomed. Obviously. If its smart, uplifting, intelligently written and cast, it will be cancelled. If its stupid, base, sophomoric…it will be renewed. That’s the rule.

You have to bring back Deception. It was the best TV Drama on NBC in a very long time at night.

glad that law & order svu was renewed. 4me it is the best procedural on tv. although i watch hannibal, it is quite grusome. i did watch criminal minds, but because l & o svu is on same time i picked it because criminal minds can get pretty grusome too.

They cancelled Go On??? How stupid can you be! I hope another network picks it up….TBS maybe?? They already have Cougar Town, so this would be a great addition!

Why did they cancel so many of their sitcoms? I’m so confused, WTF were they thinking. Do they just have so many new ones waiting for next season? Do they really expect me to just watch all of them when they canceled so many good ones? Whitney was so fricking funny, why did they cancel it? WTFE!!!

clean the slate. nbc has the WORST writers for their shows, and has the WORST director of programming in tv history.
