    Okay, watched the second show (MUCH better than the pilot) and I'm sold! Love them and their relationship; will watch every week.

    This was a great show that they didn't give time to pick up steam. Could have tried a new night on the schedule and tweeked a few things here and there. I really liked this one and it wasn't just because of the eye candy.

    That's too bad. But I'm not too surprised. I was hoping it'd be like Alias but it was much slower. Still, I liked it and hoped it would make it.

    Not surprised, could tell it was doomed 2 minutes in watching the premiere episode.

    I watched the pilot and half of the second episode and then removed it from my taping schedule. Really tedious and I'm not surprised it's been cancelled.

    I have to say, I'm not surprised it got canceled. I watched the first few episodes and thought there was potential, but then I just stopped watching. It had all of the ingredients for a big hit, but it just didn't work. It's a shame, because I would have loved to see Boris Kodjoe on my TV every week for a very long time. Now this means Alan Ball can hire him to play QUINN on True Blood!

    NOOOOOOO!!! Say it isn't so....! It the ratings aren't through the roof right off the jump, NBC yanks shows off the air.

    Guess we might as well forget about seeing anymore network shows headlined by people of color. I am done watching any new shows on NBC...DONE!

    Still haven't forgiven them for cancelling Lipstick Jungle...and of course I'll never forgive them for taking Another World off the air.

    So let me guess, they'll probably be cancelling Chase next, just because I'm into that one too.

    This is a pretty good article that discusses the cancellation and why it happened: Is J.J. Abrams too big for TV? - CNN.com

    It's not that Abrams is to big for TV the show seemly sucked, there was no chemistry between the characters and no tension or interest in what they were doing.

    I actually thought the chemistry was pretty good after the first episode. Like most shows the first episode is a set up where people get introduced and it takes a bit for the rhythm of the show to get going. I only watched it On Demand not when it aired.
