    Please don’t cancel this show. I love it and so do many others. Its definitely something my husband and I look forward to one Monday nights (even during Football season). If anything, change the night or time but don’t cancel teh show. It’s a great storyline and has a star cast. I love that you can never tell what is ever going to happen, unlike some shows. Meagan Good is a favorite!

    Deception is a GREAT SHOW!!! I love the twists the show has and how you can’t tell who should be trusted or who is good or who is evil. I love it and please don’t cancel it. I tape it every week so I don’t miss any episodes and can fast through the ads.

  6. diane says

    Fans adore this show because of the love couple Julian & Julian, I think the ratings are consistent and NBC should renew it!!! I rather watch this drama than Smash anyday!
