Shows like this rarely last on network television. They get more expensive to produce as time goes on and if the ratings drop the execs cut it in favor of something cheap like a reality show.
Truth be told I rarely catch it when it when it is aired, rather I realize I forgot about it and go watch it on their website a couple of days later. Although I like the premise (and it's blatantly ripped off from the older Fallout games with a minor twist) the writing is fairly weak. And then they throw out crazy shite like Aaron being tied to the nanites such that he can immolate people by the power of his mind.
I think they reveal who the 'President' in in a couple of weeks which might get it some traction. My thoughts on that are that it's probably not going to be who the sitting President was when all of this went down but some crazy Tea Party-esque ultra conservative Senator or government official who orchestrated the whole thing. The woman who plays Secretary... whateverhernameis... is maybe 40ish tops. So, she was like 25 when the lights went out? Doubt she was actually a cabinet member at that age.
