Why ABC keeps canceling this show I don’t know if it is the dumbing down of America well I can understand that unfortunately, there are people left in America who do have the brains to watch shows of this caliber.
So ABC please bring the show back there so many people who would love to see it and bring it to its conclusion an excellent series.

This is an excellent series. Why it was cancelled is puzzling. Probably has something to do with the dumbing down of America. The history of the CIA in this period is fascinating.

I dont understand why shows that are absolutely great get cancelled. What is it that the networks base their decisions on when canceling shows and replacing them with mindless stupidity.

ABC made a big mistake in cancelling The Assets – a terrific series. Hundred times better than most crap the network shows. Viewers with a brain want shows like Assets.

I don’t get it either. My husband and I watched this when it first came on then gone after two episodes. We love shows about historical happenings. We were excited to see the rest of the series seemingly was going to be on this summer so we could finish watching…then boom, off again. I hate network tv….no wonder I so rarely watch it anymore, very unreliable and mess with the programming all the time, even with popular shows till they lose their audiences because you give up on planning to watch them!
