Just rewatched this show. Cancelling it was a stupid decision.

Just read that NBC is going to cancel The Player. Well it just goes to show that the dumber the program the longer it will continue. This was one of the few programs besides the CSI series that we watched. Poor decision.

I agree with Clayton. Can't we just follow a guy looking for answers. Instead of looking into the lives of Hollywood's goof balls. Maybe Cosby could have done a better job with NBC. We know why not.

I just started watching the show and really got into it, I saw only five episodes and wondered why there was only five shows. I really liked this show hoping that there would be a new season. I am really disappointed that a show, which I thought was really good would be cancelled. I really wish you would put it back on giving it another chance. After five episodes which I have now have watched it is disappointing that there is no more episodes to come. Would leaving a comment make any difference on the show possibly returning. I think you need to give it another chance. I feel like this was a tease, and then a big cut off at the end. I will say, it was a good show and I want to see more of this show, so make it happen. From the other comments I have read it appears there are quite a few other people that seem to be disappointed too.

Sorry, sorry, sad decision!

I didn't think it was all that good right from the start. Too much action to compensate for bad acting and predictable formula for a plot.

If the show is good vs evil and the good are set to win in the end NBC (and all other channels) seem to want it to fail to promote the "bad guys" coming out on top
it seems to me the bbetter the show the faster they shut it down.
same with any that stand for any form of positive values
i guess the ratings go out to all the perversions and garbage
