It seemed like the perfect formula. You get a woman who looks almost identical to Kerry Washington and create a show with a name that sounds almost the same. But apparently, “Scandal” is more interesting than “deception,” since Megan Good is about to hit the bricks. The show has been cancelled after a very short run on NBC. It only got a 1.1 rating in the 18- 49 demographic, which is a pretty instant death sentence for everyone involved.
Good is a great actress, and she’ll surely get another good job in the long-run. Good luck to Megan.
Good sent out this tweet after the show’s cancellation:
I’m sorry everyone… I just wanted to let you know that NBC has decided not to renew DECEPTION… and I just wanted you guys to hear from me first… I am so thankful …and humbled ..and blessed by the out pour of love and support -to see it come back.. and saddened that it is not… Thank you so much for supporting me 🙂 means so much… Well as I can before 🙂 …Daddy always does best onward and upward 🙂 … Thank you NBC for the Opportunity- I’m definitely better for it ! … Lego .
In addition to Good, “Deception” starred Victor Garber, Tate Donovan, Laz Alonso and Katherine LaNasa. The show’s initial 13-episode order was reduced to 11 episodes before it premiered, which is generally seen as a warning sign for new shows, although NBC maintained that the move was so that they could air all 11 installments uninterrupted, since the network didn’t have room on its midseason schedule for 13.
When reached for comment, a representative for NBC had no further information.
