The Unit: What Would Have Happened in the Fifth (and Likely) Final Season

20 August 2009 4:20 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Much to the dismay of the show's loyal followers, The Unit was cancelled by CBS in May. The series' viewership had declined in its later years but, despite being preempted several times, still attracted 9.67 million viewers in season four.

The Unit was supposedly being seriously considered to continue in first-run syndication but the deal didn't work out, likely because of production costs. Sadly, while the military drama and Dennis Haysbert, Regina Taylor, Robert Patrick, and Scott Foley will be around in syndication for years to come, we won't be seeing season five of The Unit.

It turns out that the writers had a full plan for year five which Executive Producer Shawn Ryan was expecting to be the show's last. He pitched the storyline ideas to the CBS execs but ultimately they weren't interested.

The Unit: After Cancellation, Producers Get Some Good News

19 May 2009 11:13 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Today certainly wasn't a good day for fans of The Unit. CBS cancelled the show after four seasons on the air. For producers of the series however, today's dark cloud also had a silver lining.

Though there won't be any new episodes featuring Dennis Haysbert, Regina Taylor, Robert Patrick, Scott Foley and company, the show will return to the airwaves next year.

The show's studio, 20th Century TV, announced today that the military drama has been sold in syndication. According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Unit has been cleared in 56% of the country, including Fox and CBS stations. It's sold in all 15 of the top markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Dallas.

Because only 69 episodes have been produced, the stations are likely to run episodes only once or twice a week. While several series have been saved recently because of potential syndication profits, there's seemingly no interest »

The Unit: CBS Cancels Dennis Haysbert Series, No Season Five!

19 May 2009 4:15 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

There's another casualty on network TV. CBS' military drama, The Unit, has been cancelled after four seasons on the air.

The Unit revolves around an elite military unit and their civilian loved ones. The series features the talents of Dennis Haysbert, Regina Taylor, Audrey Marie Anderson, Robert Patrick, Max Martini, Abby Brammell, Michael Irby, Scott Foley, Demore Barnes, Alyssa Shafer, Danielle Hanratty, Kavita Patil, and Rebecca Pidgeon.

Created by acclaimed director and writer David Mamet, the series debuted in mid-season 2006. An average audience of 15.5 million viewers ensured a second season for the drama but year two didn't go as well, attracting 11.1 million viewers. The show has continued to decline in the ensuing years and season four has averaged an audience of 9.15 million. Though the overall viewership isn't too low, the series does skew older. The average age of The Unit's viewership is about 55.

Angela Bassett would make Emmy history if she wins lead actress for 'ER'

17 March 2009 6:26 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There is a spirited debate in the forums about whether Angela Bassett of "ER" should put herself forward in the lead or supporting category at this year's Emmy Awards. The Oscar-nominated actress ("What's Love Got to Do With It") has joined the cast of the NBC medical drama as attending physician Cate Banfield for the final season of its 15-year run. Were she to get a lead nod and then win, Angela Bassett would make Emmy history as the first African American actress to prevail for a regular lead role on a drama series.

"ER" has won 22 of its record 122 Emmy nominations. However, only one of those Emmys went to a series regular — Julianna Margulies as supporting actress for the first season in 1995. And the last series regular to be nominated was Maura Tierney in that same category in 2001. But, as forum moderator Darrin "DoubleD" Dortch points out, "'ER's' buzz has skyrocketed. »

40th Annual NAACP Image Awards recognize Tariji, Rosario, Chandra, Halle and many others

13 February 2009 6:00 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Although the evening's sole openly gay nominee, Wanda Skyes, didn't win in her category (or even attend the event; Queen Latifah was also absent), the 40th NAACP Image Awards show offered an entertaining and inspiring evening last night.

Halle Berry and Tyler Perry co-hosted the annual awards show that pays tribute to people of color in entertainment, on the eve of the NAACP's one-hundredth anniversary.

Beyoncé kicked it off with a great performance of her song "Halo," set against images of the Civil Rights movement. I don't think anyone was really surprised when she won Favorite Female Singer later in the evening.

Jennifer Hudson received a standing ovation when she won for Best New Artist, and proceeded to knock her musical performance out of the park.

The women who took home awards in the major TV categories include Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfriends »
