    Deception is a really good show. Its nice to turn on the t.v. and find something other than all these terrible reality shows.

  2. ty durant says

    This show is so good. It will be a shame if NBC let this show go off the air. This could be the new hot drama’ Please keep this on the network or somebody else will pick this show up’ For sure….

    Love this show… It gets better and better… And the other NBC shows have had terrible numbers… This one deserves another run. I want to see how it continues.. Joanna is a wonderfully rich character.,.. and so is the conception of Vivian Bowers life.. The combination of the two is character dynamite.

  6. Vicki and Shelby says

    Mother and Daughter night every Monday. Great show. Had us in the first ten min. on Episode 1. Love love love it. Please do not cancel!!!!

  7. Taylor says

    I love this show!!!! My sister is away at college, I’m still in high school but we watch it at the same time every Monday, it gives us something to talk about sometimes I miss it so then I go online and watch it. I usually don’t get into TV shows like this because you have to keep watching it every week but I’ll for Deception I’d make time to watch it even if it came on every other day. I have never been so glued and attached to a show before. Please don’t cancel it, come back with another season!! It’s amazing

  8. JEN says

    DECEPTION is a good show and should not be canceled. i love watching it i will watch it when it comes on and then again on Demand – very intriguing and if anything move it to another time slot/day but keep it!

  9. Chauncey says

    I just started watching the show Again and I agree it’s an excellent show. It should stay on the air.

  10. deception fan says

    This is the only network show I watch. Trust me I am 100% cable channel veiwer who gave up watching any basic network shows 3 years ago. Deception has me hooked every Monday! Love this show and the characters. NBC better take a chance on this show because it has major potential. The chemistry is hot between Wes and Meghan and NBc should surely capiolize on that. Plus there is still more story to tell and secrets to reveal that justifies for season 2. New night and time, better promotion could be the best thing for this show to become a hit

    DO NOT Cancel _ This is a great show. IT has a little of everything. I love MIA Bower Keep her sweet. Is Is great to see the Bower boys turning out to be good guys and the step mother to be good t MIA even tough she really is wicked.It shows that people are complex . The only reason I do not watch on Mondays is that I may be doing school work – but than I watch later on demand or on the internet . Sometimes I cannot find it on reg broadcast T>V . Love this show- Advertise times more. Love to hate Will.

    Deception is written with much character and class. I love how it relates to all people no matter of race, age, gender, or class. It seems that most quality shows always get canceled or it at the very least considered. I believe with proper advertising, the ratings will skyrocket. The marketing for the show it not parallel to the quality of it. I absolutely live the program. I looked at the numbers and it appears that they have declined with the viewers; however, continue to write as you are and the ratings will increase!

  13. Angela says

    This series is excellent it has everything, I look forward to a second season the writers, are excellent , and also the cast members you got it right. Excellent, Excellent. Keep it comming

  14. denise says

  15. Courtney says

    I absolutely LOVE this show! Please don’t cancel it! Just move it to another time/day… Great show and great cast.
