HORRIBLE NEWS! One of my favorite comedies in years was smart, well-written, and expertly performed by a brilliant ensemble cast. Oh- one more thing: it was still VERY FUN. Fingers crossed it’s picked up elsewhere like Brooklyn 99 & Taxi.#EverythingILikeGetsCancelled 😩 https://t.co/lpeoVcnBop

Fans agreed with ‘The Machine’ actor that the show was canceled too quickly. “So do we. They expect immediate success. If it doesn’t get the grades they were hoping for fast enough, and it’s not financially productive to hit the targets. They’re canceled. Sad , they can’t give shows more time to grow on viewers. [are] canceled too quickly,” one fan commented.
“I absolutely have to come back to this one. I was distracted by so many falls at once. I feel like we have so much solid content that a lot of it gets axed too soon due to programming overflow across different platforms,” another follower shared.
Several users have actually expressed interest in watching the show, claiming that they have never even heard of it. “Sounds like the kind of show I would have liked, but I’ve never even heard of it. It looks like they didn’t do a very good job of marketing which would be NBC’s fault,” another fan added.
