    Seen commercials that didn’t excite me to start watching.On a boring day with nothing on tv, after zapping from channel to channel I came across the weekend break of underemployed.After half an hour I already decided to watch till the last show on weekend break.Nowadays it’s all the same bs on tv. This show is finally something different and actual to real life.So the actors got my vote of making not only a second season but many more…!!

    Do NOT cancel this show!
    If you gave such a crappy ass show like jersey shore 6 seasons it’ll be fair to give underemployed a 2nd season. Advertise it better!

    Keep it it’s real life stuff people can relate to not like the actual reality shows where everything is so staged looking. Too many networks are getting rid of great shows before they have had a chance to catch on by more people. Since when is 12 episodes one season what happened to all the shows with like at least 24.

    Love this show! Way better than half the stuff I’ve been seeing on MTV I’m in a different age bracket not typical slightly older so you have more than just a young audience.
    Really enjoyed each characters personality and issues they dealt with. So please renew the contract!!:)

    Nooo bring it back please I really liked the show. I can actually relate to this there are teens and college graduates that are going through this.. What they need to cancel is teem mom the message that’s really getting out there is that if you get pregnant you might get a chance to sign up for another season of teen mom and become rich off of it smh girls don’t care how hard it is there are a lot of janelles in the world who always use their parents as babysitters..
