  1. It is a mistake to cancel #DesignatedSurvivor. Please reconsider. This is a fantastic show.

  2. Don’t cancel Designate Survivor !!!
    That and the Good Doctor are my all time favorites!!!

  3. I love the new show Deception. I can’t believe they want to cancel that one. It is so fun to watch and love the characters and actors on the show. Please reconsider this one.
