OH YEAH, and, PLEASE BRING IT BACK! It was brilliant!
AT LEAST bring it back for half season and give the writers a chance to give it an ending, as was done with Jericho, but then again that required one of the biggest internet-uproars in TV history to make happen. SO BRING IT ON GUYS! If they cancel your show, don't take it lying down! Be heard! Kick the cage! if enough people scream loudly enough sometimes prayers ARE answered!

Back in the day, (lets say, '70s-'80s) it wasn't uncommon for shows with weak ratings on the first season to be given a second season anyway, just based on someone with pull just KNEW it was good, so let it ride. Now days this pretty much unheard of. One season weak "ratings", yer OUT. There's a long list of great shows that never would have been by today's standards. Two of the top good examples of shows that had poor ratings 1st season but got a second chance, that wouldn't get one today, SEINFELD, (no ****), and Happy Days.
AS For the other eternal question here, why to crap reality shows go on year after year while brilliant "scripted dramas" like The Firm and Harry's Law, & Jericho and Fire Fly and Cane (and on and on), get the axe. Believe it or not, there's fairly good business-sense reason. Scripted dramas, on average, compared to your typical "reality" show, COST MUCH more to produce. What kind of ratings a show needs to be renewed is tied directly to "cost to produce". THAT is why all those reality shows you hate so much live on and on, they don't cost $#it to produce.

I was enjoying this show. I really hoped it would be back for another season. I guess we can count on NBC for one season ONLY of a good show. Why do they keep the garbage and cancel the good shows?

I do not usually write to complain. This show was 1 of 2 shows I watched weekly. I would very much like to continue watching this. The movie was good but this series was the best I have seen.

Wow - *I agree with Pamela and Dave etc -all the intelligent shows are cancelled and stupidity reigns!! Are the networks taking into consideration that we are taping on PVR's and watching on-line and this isn't being picked up by their current rating system maybe ?? Just when we get into the plot it is cancelled - remember "the Event" " "Stargate Universe "another with plot twists etc - BOO -There must be something we can do as WATCHERS??

NBC (No brain channel) continues to assault us with network crap. When they get it right, it must be a scary thing, for they immediately cancel the offending series and go back to showing us garbage. Whew! I'm sure glad somebody at the no brain channel has their finger on the pulse of the American public. (That's right, they do, because the public would rather watch something that requires no thinking to deduce)

As per usual, trash television reigns supreme, and shows that illustrate any level of depth or character development get the axe.

How about do away with all the retarded comedy and reality TV shows instead?

People don't like to think anymore, it seems :( *sigh*
