this was the smartest show we’ve seen since the first 2 seasons of “30 rock”, and are very disappointed to see it gone.

If nine episodes were produced and only three aired, shouldn’t there be six and not four episodes left?

CBS does this with every bomb that gets cancelled on their network nowadays. I guess they want to keep the few fans of the show happy.

I actually think I would prefer the networks to show reruns of their popular shows during the summer. Then I can catch up on shows I missed during the season. For example, I would like NBC to show reruns of Grimm during the summer, because I was watching Fringe during the regular season.
