What do you think? Do you watch Designated Survivor? Do you like season two so far?
I LOVE DESIGNATED SURVIVOR!!! It is an awesome show and it has continued to get better. It seems like whatever Keifer touches turns to gold…ie 24. SO if someone sees fit to cancel a wonderful show like DESIGNATED SURVIVOR and keep things like ANY of those crappy reality show THEY HAVE LOST THEIR FREAKING MINDS and THEY SHOULD BE FIRED!!! Just telling it like it is!!! THANK YOU
I LOVE THIS DHOW IT IS THE BEST SERIES ON TELEVISION EVER!!!!!
I love this show and I’m looking forward to 2/28/18 when it returns, I do hope it is renewed for a 3rd season, one of the best shows on TV this year.
My wife and I find Designated Survivor to be a great series. When is Season 3 beginning? Very soon I hope.
This program keeps me glued to the TV. It provides hope that things can be solved when people work together but it also shows the darker side of politics. Please keep it going. Feb. 28 can’t come soon enough.
Great show!!!!! I am missing it!!! Want to see the end of this season and hope that there are several more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A mistake not to have this show continue.
Love it, it would be nothing without Sutherland
I really hope there will be a season 3 of Designated Survivor! One of the best series I ever have seen!
Can hardly wait till February for the next season of DS!
Good to see that the US can be governed differently and solve major problems in a more honest solid way than what we see nowadays.
You’re leaving out Italia Ricci as Emily Rhodes!
With the ending of this season finale, Designated Survivor has to be renewed. It cannot just stop with the cliff hanger at the end. There is so much relevancy to the current way things are now in our country. I love this show as does my hubby. For those who have compromised eyesight the thing we have to write in order to post a comment needs to be clearer.
Designated Survivor is a great show. I would be terribly disappointed if it were to be cancelled. Please renew it come February.
Designated Survivor is my favorite show! Certainly relevant to today’s times! I love Kiefer Sutherland! Please don’t cancel this show!
Love this show so glad it’s coming back
Got a car sticker saying “Kirkman for President” so they better not cancel it! Every well-written and well-acted show that totally draws me in get axed..I’m a victim of 18-34 yr old demographics who rule the airways. DS is a GREAT show and very topical in today’s political world
