The Assets: canceled episodesAt the recent Television Critics Association press tour, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee reflected on cancelled mini-series The Assets.

    I really enjoyed watching this series, why does ABC do this? They resumed broadcasting the series last month & now it’s gone again, can’t they just finish it once and for all, you suck ABC!!

    PLEASE show the rest of the episodes of the Asset!!!!! It isn’t fair to pull a series after 2 shows then show us 2 more only to pull it again & leave it undone!!! It was an intelligent story & then it’s replaced by a low brow show like Mistresses? Really are we all that stupid?
