    The Good Wife. I truly CAN NOT BELIEEEEVE that show didn’t make it. I thought the acting was incredible; the plots were consistently entertaining; the show was truly a quality show. What a mistake!!! The raters must have not been doing their jobs. :(

    My vote is for the show “The Cleaner”. It is the best show, it is reality… All that they do, is true!!! I truly hope that it comes back.
