    I cannot tell you how disappointed I am that this show is cancelled. The only thing I usually watch is the History Channel because I’m’not really interested in anything else on TV. For some reason I really connected with the cast and enjoyed Emily soooo much! I scheduled my Tuesdays to ensure I would be able to watch this show. I stayed up for the last two Tuesdays waiting for it to come on, so when it didn’t, I finally looked it up today. And the crap about Cults and all the crazies around us (the show they replaced her with) is just another sick thing that our society does not need! COME ON! Give hert back to us!
