  1. This sucks. I love Perception and what’s worse i am hearing rumours that Covert Affairs may not be back either which would be even worse as i love that show too! So many good shows are being cancelled of late while some of the duds somehow get to continue.

  2. The show had a good run but maybe there is a Will & Grace curse going on, Sean Hayes’ new show ‘The Millers’ has just been axed early in it’s 2nd season and Debra Messing’s new show ‘The Mysteries of Laura’ is looking shaky even though it just get a full season order. Time will tell if it is renewed for a 2nd.

  3. Nooooo!! I love this show with its ability to incorporate real psychological disorders with the traditional criminal genre. Most importantly I love McCormack’s ability to play an individual with schizophrenia without looking like a fool putting it on. Losing two TNT dramas in 2 days sucks =(. At least we’ll see the final season in HD on Universal.
