    I really hope they dont cancel the show, I loved it. I feel if they kept it around for another season, other people might be interested in tuning it. I thought it was great and I really want to see a second season.

  2. Ashley says

    This is the ONLY show I watch on tv. I am extremely busy and I choose this as my one show. I look forward to it each week. Please do not cancel it.

  3. Jennie says

    Please do not cancel this show! I don’t watch TV but I look forward to this show so much and it would be so sad if it was to be cancelled.

  4. Lora says

    for what it’s worth. I also enjoyed this show and am surprised and sad that its numbers will probably lead to cancellation. where was the MTV support for this show?

  5. Joanne says

    This show reminds of How To Make It In America and I loved that show too, but is got canceled too. Please don’t cancel this show. This takes a stab at real life for young adults. This, Teen Wolf, Real World, and the now canceled America’s Best Dance Crew are the reason I watch MTV. You guys need to promote the show more. Maybe do more commercials on MTV and MTV2.

  6. Olivia says

    PLEASE DON’T CANCEL UNDEREMPLOYED! It’s an amazing show with so much more to offer. It’s the only show I watch on MTV. The perfect (and positively influential) show for teenagers and young adults. If there was better advertising it could do so well! ONE MORE SEASON!
