    If this show was on FOX it would have been canceled 1/2 way through the frist show. ABC at least is giving it a shot for the entire season. I hope it's picked up as it is a very good and interesting show.

    I hope if they cancel that a proper ending is given to it. It is a pretty good show. If in doubt just watch this week episode, the best of the season so far.

    Hopefully this will be a keeper. It reminds me of another great show that was cancelled well before its rise to fame...The Black Donnellys. Love the show though. Keep it going ABC and maybe try and advertise a show other than your flagship shows for once.

    I get more and more attached to the characters every episode. What a great ensemble! And it's not just a set of separate storylines, they're interwoven in a very engaging way. I feel everyone working together in the final result. I really hope ABC reorders!

    I'm new to this forum, but I have to say, the weakest part of this show could be the reason is aired. For me that's Amber Tamblym or however it's spelled. Although she has her moments where she flat out hot, she's not the lest bit believable to me as a NYC cop. Sure, she's supposed to be the rich girl who doesn't want the cash, but she's just not right for the role. I really dig the rest of the cast and should they made a traveling pants TV show, sign her up, but I think she's grossly misscast in this role.

    ...will not be back for a second shift after wrapping its current run. ...series creator Noah Hawley shared Sunday via his Twitter account. "Thanks for all your amazing support. Last [4] episodes start May 27."

    Drat, this show was worth a renew!

    Very sad to see this show not get renewed. Why does ABC even bother with new shows just to cancel them?

    Sadly it has been canceled and can't say I'm not surprised since ABC always seems to cancel good programming.

    Part of the problem may be that ABC has such a history of cancelling good shows without giving them a fair trial that people are reluctant to tune into something new. Making a cancellation decision based on just five episodes reveals that there are no bounds on the executives' stupidity.

    Looks like the five episodes are turning into ten. That is a tad better than the 'ended' I keep seeing everywhere.
