    Please keep it! Even if on another night at a different time! Such a great storyline, characters, cast, writing…please give it a chance!!!

    Cannot cancel this show!!! It’s getting soooo good and I love the characters, relationships and twist!!! 😀 another season for sure!!

    I love this show! The lead is a black female cop. Being a female latina in law enforcement, I know personally how difficult it is to be in this line of work. It’s even harder when your a woman and a minority, it’s a double whammy. You have to work twice as hard to prove yourself because no one respects you or takes you seriously. Most men have a hard time dealing with women as authority figures and don’t like taking orders from us either! I hope Deception gets renewed for another season. We need more shows like this on tv.

    Deception is a great show and I feel it would be a tragedy if NBC cancels it…I am so tired of reality shows and feel this is a great drama for their lineup. I rather watch this show than Biggest Loser and other boring shows.

    Please keep the show on and renew the season..I definitely enjoy the drama, sex and story line. Love it… It’s a nice change from all the stupid reality shows and it’s original…

    Deception is the only reason I stay up on Mondays. The show has so much going for it. Every Tuesday morning I sit down and talk the show over with my mother in law to see if we missed a clue as to who killed Vivan. Once we saw the first episode we picked who the killer was. Since the real killer has yet to be revealed it will be nice to see who actually won between us. Please keep Deception for another season. Even if you have to move it to you sister station.
