    They better not cancel Deception. What happens to Mia when Wyatt grabbs her, will Robert go to jail, so many unanswered questions.

    When will the three networks learn? This is no longer their world. They are competing with cable and they are trying to measure viewers using an archaic system that doesn’t capture DVR which most people use these days to see everything they want to see. Deception is a good show and certainly better than 90% of the reality shows on TV (although not as cheap to make I know).

    I am frankly tired of even TRYING new shows because I always get disappointed when they cancel a show after I get involved in it. Seriously people. ‘All in the Family’ and other shows that went on to be blockbusters all needed time to grow an audience. In the current network TV environs, we often lose a show after 2 weeks!

    Stick with Deception and let it build an audience. PLEASE

    I’ve watched & DVRed Deception every week and love it. I hope NBC gives it a second season – the finale left too many unanswered questions. Really enjoyed the complex mysterious and relationships. Everyone’s got a dark side and that makes it fun to watch. Just dont move it to Thursday’s that’s #SCANDAL nite.

    I’ve watched Deception every week and love it. I hope NBC gives it a second season – the finale left too many unanswered questions. Really like the characters of Julian and Sophia…but have really enjoyed this soap and unraveling the complex mystery and relationships. Everyone’s got a dark side and that makes it fun to watch.

    What is going to happen to Mia?? Who hired the Russian?? Are they going to have a case against Robert?? Will Julian find out what really happened to his mom?? Please bring the show back for another season.
