    PROMOTE MORE SO MORE PEOPLE WILL TUNE IN, IT WAS BEING PROMOTED MORE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON, NOT SO MUCH IN THE MIDDLE.

    This show is the only reason I really watch MTV, I haven’t been able to catch it on tv because I thought it played on Saturdays (mtv site advertised that at some point). Alot of people can relate to it which makes it beyond GREAT…Love it…Every episode keeps your eyes open. I give it a 10/10 rating.

    DON’T CANCEL THE SHOW. Underemployed is literally my favorite show on MTV and I tell all of my friemds to watch it. The thing is, the show aired on Saturdays and no one wants to sit home on a Saturday night! What I did was went on MTV.com or ondemand and caught up on the show on sundays, which I’m sure a lot of others did too. BY FAR the best show that has ever aired on MTV and if it gets cancelled I promise you I will never watch another show on MTV again, except Awkward of course. I WILL get everyone I know to watch the full season on Netflix or something because this show CAN NOT get cancelled.

    This is only season 1 give it a chance it is a good show is your gonna take anyone show off take buck wild off that is a pointless show…they act childish and seems to me they want to be a country version of Jersey not working fir shore .

    Aww I really hope this show doesn’t get cancelled!
    It’s one of my favorites! I just hate the fact that MTV plays
    all these other dumb shows over and over and didn’t even give
    this great show a chance.

    Please Do Not Cancel. I Love This Show! I Love The Life Principals Portrayed Within The Story Lines & Cannot Wait Every Week For a New Episode. If The Ratings Arent As Good As MTV Would Like They Should Just Promote it More. Its Truly a Great Show!!

    I absolutely love this show and for everything it has exposed this season. It puts such a reality cap on my generation. It has given me great perspectives to live my weeks by. I could not be thankful enough for having this season air during this semester for me. Please create a SEASON 2 of Underemployed (and make sure Miles and Daph end up together please).

  8. Amber says

    Don’t cancel the show! I love Underemployment and can’t wait for season 2. Beside a few other shows that air on MTV everything else sucks. I can’t believe they would keep Snookie & Jwoww over this, that is about the most ridiculous show that’s ever aired.

  9. Mimi says

    Please do not cancel this show!!!! Its like the only show I watch apart from PLL. But me and a lot of people look forward to this show every weekend! Diego Boneta has worked really hard and so have the other actors im sure. Just let there be a season two!!!
