Bad news Deception fans. NBC has officially canceled the dramatic soap series after one season. It's not a huge surprise, especially after  the network's April 26 press release announcing drama series that would be renewed for next season, its 2013-14 slate, and Deception wasn't on that list of titles.Although the network did warn, at the time, that there would be more returning series announcements made in the following 2 weeks, so we didn't write off Deception's return right away. Taking a look at Deception (which starred Meagan Good and Laz Alonso) it debuted to 5.6 million viewers and a 2.0 rating, which wasn't all that strong to begin with. After its debut, it hovered around the 3+ million viewers mark, a 40% drop from its premiere highs, which is hefty. Its first season ended on March 18, airing 11 episodes total. It was a losing its time slot for NBC, with ABC and CBS leading the hour. »
