For once do keep a good, intelligent show…audience should have other options other than those “reality shows” that is just garbage. Give viewers the chance to discover this show by advertising, and more marketing…because hinestly a lot of people does not even know that this show is even on air..

The first season was incredible. Second was.. meh. The reason the views have dropped is because they stopped the growing relationship between Daniel and Kate. All of the romantics in the viewing list are now not interested, since it hurts to see Kate getting back together with Donnie.

Love the show. With so much crap on, leave one show for me to look forward to.

Love this show! It’s interesting, yet hard to find. Thankfully, I have it programmed into my DVR. They just show it so inconsistently it’s hard for anyone to stumble across it. If TNT supported it, this show could have a following comparable to “Downton Abbey”!

Please keep this show! I suffered the loss of House and cannot think of losing another sexy Dr.

I found this show very interesting and could hardly wait for the next episode. \I have already purchased season 1 & 2. \I agree that there has been very little next to no advertising for the show. Scheduling may also have a major part in the ratings.

It was very very thought provoking and informative. Often we have a tendency only see the negative and not the positive elements or the work arounds. This program should definitely be renewed.

Thought-provoking! I recorded the 10 shows this past summer and started watching them recently. I am now a big fan and this show definitely needs to be renewed. What does it take to keep quality shows on the air??


Steffi September 3, 2013 at 4:41 am

what happened to the other 4 shows that were supposed to air of season 2?!?! I can’t find anywhere where they said they are cancelling them, yet I see where they were added, and considering it’s renewed for another season I would think they wouldn’t be cancelling shows for THIS season…. someone please tell me where t

The four remaining episodes are expected to air later this year or in early 2013.

I just found about this series, and love it… Renew it please!

I too find myself among the ranks of the “Perception” fans, and I’m proud to say so. Please, please keep the show! It’s clever, well written, and well acted. It’s unfortunate that the viewership is down, but I wonder if that is due to less advertising for season two than for season one? It was only by chance that I was able to catch the season opener this year!


Barbara July 25, 2013 at 4:05 pm

I think this is an incredible show! I love it!♥ please please please dont cancel.


Roy Pendergist July 24, 2013 at 1:21 am

I am also a huge fan of this show. I think the writing and the show is better this year than last year. I hope they keep it.

Just found out about this detective show this season. Very impressed. Great actors, love Eric McCormick’s character and the other actors of the team. I really like that the storyline embraces members of society that we meet in real life, but usually don’t get good characters in television unless they are “the bad guys.” Really enjoying the latest one, when the detecting that falls into the virtual world that so many people spend much of their days in. Check out this show if you haven’t yet.
