    I hope NBC renews Deception it is a great show with a great cast. It keeps you focus i on trying to figure out “who done it”. We need more of these kinds of shows instead of reality shows. Hope NBC does the right thing.

    This the best show I have seen in a long time. I am not an NBC watcher, but I don’t miss an episode of Deception. Renew it. It’s the Tuesday morning talk at work. Please don’t take it off.

    It’s an awesome show. Please don’t cancel it. Perhaps there are too many foolish people still watching the Bachelor instead of trying out new programs. There are lots of great new tv shows and Deception is one of my new favorites. I’ve gotten friends addicted to watching it so you need to spread the word.

    I love this show. I was instantly hooked. The writing is great, the show is just scrumptious with drama. Hoping for a season two. It’s about time there’s something new worth watching on NBC!

    Please, please renew Deception for another year;
    One of the few really good series on TV. …fingers crossed!

    With each episode the story gets more interesting, the acting gets more believable, and I look forward to watching each week. I dvr this each week, hope it sticks around.

    I really enjoy the show…it’s different from most shows on tv currently. I think Johanna and Julian make a great pair. Also nice to see people of color head up a great cast like this. Hope the show keeps going.

  8. Z Marie says

    Please keep this amazing cast and take a new, quicker approach to the episodes. Don’t let some many plot snags dissipate. Too, perhaps some trust would balance the distrust. Why can’t Johanna and Will actually trust and care for another AND she sleep with Julian if she must. There’s really great tone overall, but I mostly read not watch TV, and I’d like to see more self-actualization. I mean we lose it as so as we have it so don’t be afraid that there’s no drama in characters being autonomous.
    Thanks for bringing S. Epatha Merkerson on tonight’s episode.
