    I really enjoy this show. It is very well written. So many layers of “Deception” to work through. I hope us viewers can the chance. PLEASE don’t cancel it!

  2. Joanne says

    This sucks. Just when I get into a show, then the ******* networks want to cancel it because the ratings are low. Start streaming your shows on youtube and you will really see how many people watch your shows. Furthermore, stop blocking your network websites for other countries. What I visit my family in Ghana and I want to watch my shows? I won’t be able to because NBC is blocked there.

    I love deception. It start getting good. Please dont cancel it because I want to see who kill Vivian and I want to see what going on with Will and Joanna.

  4. Adina says

    I love Deception and I hope they bring it back for another season. Although I read online that the last episode will air on March 18.

  5. E. Ross says

    It will be typical of the powers that be at NBC to cancel Deception after one season, leaving us hanging as to the punch line. I should have known better than to start watching an NBC show!

    I looooove Deception. The best way to get better ratings is to air the show in other countries. I’m in the UK and I stream it from here every week. I want to know what’s happening next. Please don’t cancel. Just make available elsewhere and you will see the ratings go higher.

  7. Deserie says

    I absolutely love deception, the characters are totally believable,
    The plots keep me and my daughter coming back every week, we even
    record it so we don’t miss it. Please, please don’t take it off, maybe strengthen
    The relationships a little more, NBC give it time, I know it will work.
    Even Ellen Degeneres, said on her show that she watched it.

    I love this show. The writers and actors are worth keeping the show for the second season. NBC SHOULD NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW!!!!!! If they do, I am through with NBC because this will tell me they do not know a good show when they have one.
