    I think it could have worked if they had the group turn on Liotta after Liotta tries to go good. Better structure of good guys and villians. But noooooo. They had to make all the main characters bad.

    CBS didn't call it cancellation, they called it 'being replaced with CSI & Criminal Minds reruns', which I guess could translate to CANCELLED.
      Too bad, I liked this show...

    Im not surprised, I posted a review that said the show needed lots of work and was shot down for it. Im sad because I love Ray Liotta but this show was just dreary. I called it on Kidnapped as well, Vanished is far better. Oh well Im sure alot more shows will disappear. Hopefully they will come up with something more original, I love The Nine.

    I liked it but it was too dark. There were little redeeming qualities to any of the main characters. I thought Smith was better than both Heist and Thief combined but there was little chance for survival. At least with other shows where the main dudes are bad, like Prison Break, you like the characters (except the child molester in PB) despite their flaws. I didn't like any of these characters in Smith (but loved the action...) I do think it deserved more time to gain a fan base. I think all shows deserve at least that.

    As for Vanished, I think the acting is the worst I've seen in a primetime drama ever... Kidnapped was better in that category. (No one will ever make a show as good as 24 so they should just quit trying...)

    Well, it's on hiatus, there is no official confirmation that's it's cancelled.. yet! The network may air the rest of the episodes. I always thought they should have made a movie with it!

    They'll probably all be in the next tv drama.  Hopefully one that has a bonafide good guy as the lead.

    Sorry, but I'm not surprised at all. This show is definitely not my cup of tee. To be honest, I almost fell asleep during the pilot, and I didn't like the characters, none of them. Hustle was much more to my taste. However, I agree that it wouldn't be fair to cancel a show that soon.

    It's no where to be found on CBS's website...a tell-tale sign that the "hiatus" is likely permanent

    I hope it's not canceled but the show is on at 10pm.  What kind of ratings are they expecting?!  I saw the Pilot but I fell asleep before I could watch another episode.  I have the other episodes on DVR.  I like the show.  It did need some work but it shouldn't be canceled. I guess this is what happens when a network like CBS does a show that should be on Fox.

    The show has been OFFICIALLY cancelled by CBS as of October 6, 2006.

    It's a tough but very real aspect of "pilot" shows. Move on with your life.

    This is a great show and the best theif show out there. If it is cancelled then im goin to be mad. Someone said they didnt like the pilot the pilot was an amazing episode. I truly loved it I haven't see the third episode yet watching it right after i finish but so far the pilot was the best of the 2 IMO. I really hope they see what the fans have to say before they pull the plug.

    I love Ray Liotta and enjoyed "Smith".  Unfortunately, new series don't get a change to prove themselves unless they're dumb reallity shows.  I love "Vanished", "Kidnapped" and "Shark". 

    Shows are cancelled before solving whatever mystery there is, example "Invasion", which I loved - the producers can't even sell the DVD without an ending - which baffled me - the same happened with "Reunion".

    I hope "Smith" returns and solves the mystery hints a bit sooner - Smith's wife - I think people stopped guessing what her story was and didn't want to wait to find out - too bad. I loved the show and all the characters, no matter how bad they were - some of you should check out "Dexter" on Showcase - now there's a dark character - but interesting - I'll keep watching "Dexter" and I've ordered the book it's based on.
