    I hate to post this message and was hoping not to have to do it. The Unit has been officially canceled by CBS. Here are the links: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news.aspx?date=05/19/09&id=8115

    I will miss this show and feel the story wasn't finished. How CBS could keep "Cold Case" and put it in The Unit's slot ticks me off. "Cold Case" is not a show I can watch since it jumped the shark and Nuked the Frig going back to WWII deaths. Also, CBS took Medium that was cancled by NBC and moved the show to CBS. This is new CBS Schdule;

    Gone are Without a Trace, The Unit, and Worst Week.

    It's just typical of television channels to cancel the best shows that they create and keep the shows that shouldn't have lastest it's first season let alone get renewed over and over again. Being in the UK i'm only half way through season four so i'm going to keep watching but from now on i don't think its worth watching interesting new shows because it appears these days to be a complete waste of time.

    crap like Dollhouse (yes I think thats a stupid show and I know its on a different network) get renewed and yet The Unit doesnt.....pisses me off.

    I hope they make a TV movie to close out the show, I hate when shows last this long just to disappear with no real closure....

    How about Parks and Recreation making it past the first episode much less getting renewed. I find myself watching fewer shows every year...

    I wonder how long this "Three Rivers" show will last...

    Any chance of a US member starting a campaign to keep the Unit (ala Nuts for Jericho??).

    I am more than happy to sign a petition, heck I may even be tempted to send something over from the UK if it's needed.

    While it's sad to see The Unit go, it's not too surprising - it's been on the chopping block for a while now.

    CBS didn't even give The Unit an ending episode to close it. They threw the show right out of their executive office windows. I'll not watch CBS's shows unless they put back another military show back on.

    I think the brass at CBS need to have their heads examined, this was the best show they had.
