    I LOVE THIS SHOW….I TUNE IN EVERY MONDAY….PLEASE BRING IT BACK. IT’S GOOD TO SEE ACTORS FROM MOVIE ROLES JUMP INTO SMALL SCREEN TV AND SHINE! MEGAN GOOD IS A GREAT ACTRESS WHO ISN’T GIVEN ENOUGH CREDIT. WOULD LOVE TO SEE WHERE THIS SHOW GOES. I FOR SURE WILL BE WATCHING IF (WHEN) IT RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON.

    I really like Deception; I’ve watched every episode. I really want this show to stay on air. It’s a good show and I like looking at Wes Brown every week!

    I love the show…I think it will surpass Revenge. This is a really good program. I have been recruiting new viewers over the last few weeks. I am confident that NBC will do the right thing and renew the show.

    Love this show! Very original, and captivating…….storyline moves quickly, and just when you think you something figured out, another twist comes. And, nice that they have multiple storylines running at the same time…….the family ties are also interesting to watch

    I love this show, despite its slow start. I hope this will fare better with the domestic audience than other, similar shows, and that it won’t be cancelled !!
