Sadly gotta agree with this one. For me at least, I already know the story to start with and it's not a good one. I watched the first episode, and while it was well done of course there were no surprises, and I just couldn't see continuing to watch a show that highlighted one of our greatest failures.

I Watched the 3rd and 4th épisodes in the last two weeks but on ABC Schedule for july 5th and july 12th, the are showing Mistresses, my cable recorde just advied me that the show has been retired by ABC...
What's wrong with ABC, they're giving us the hope to see the last 6 épisodes and after number 4, bye bye and don't forget to see our new series the upcomming autumn...
For sure, I'll surely come to like many new series that will surely be cancelled again...
Poor ABC !

I just watched the third episode of The Assets, and my DVD is set to record episode 4 @9pm on Sat 6/28, and Episode 5 on 7/5. So it looks like they are airing the entire season, which might be bad, if there is a cliffhanger.

It annoys me that they don't give the show a chance. I was watching it and looked up the actual case and read the book just to keep up with the show...At least finish the story before you cancel.

This was a good show. Sad to see that ABC has let another good one go too soon.

I never paid any attention to the Aldrich Ames case because it was boring. The John Walker spy scandel of the 1980's: now there was something to pay attention to.

I can speak for my entire family when I say we are very disappointed The Asset has been canceled! We looked forward to watching the show. Big Mistake to CANCEL!!!
