I am convinced that the bugs got to the people that cancelled this show. Only someone with half a brain would cancel such a great show. I am with the others and hope a smarter network (one with whole brains) will pick this back up.

This show was the most just plain fun watching of any in recent memory... Was amazed to learn it wouldn't even get a season two.

Can we start a petition to bring this show back? Maybe Hulu or Netflix can pick it up? They seem to have better quality shows than the networks.

Loved this show sad it was cancelled. What was the reason for taking it off the air?

Surely you jest "???!!!" A really quirky and whacky program, full of surprising twists and turns, I cannot believe it was cancelled, hope you return it to tv!!!

It was the most logical and believable explanation for the idiots we have running the country. I loved every minute of this show. It is a pity that the network was so shortsighted to cancel this witty satire.

Please reconsider, we need to add some humor to the awful and frightening state of country's politics. Come on, the cherry trees are about to blossom!

What a huge disappointment. It was a bit quirky but had good writers and was a wonderful "tongue in cheek" plot. Turns out the premise is not that far away from reality. Please do bring it back for a second season. The series that have been renewed are not worth watching. I may watch about 3-4. CBS did not give this a chance by changing the times and always making the viewer search for when it was on. Sorry but your renewed shows are awful and I will probably cancel my cable as there is nothing to watch unless you are into vampires, living dead etc. which is not worth the money.

Since the final episode wrapped up the story, I didn't think the series was going to be renewed. Still, it was a good satire about how the political hardliners (e.g. Ted Cruz, Freedom Caucus) are obstructionists to getting anything done in Washington. They're adamant about doing everything their way, like the One Way and No Way groups in the show.
