    Help save Special Unit 2. The show was renewed by UPN. But, CBS (thanks to the merger) cancelled it and the 9 episode full season commitment UPN gave it. Even if you are not a fan. Please sign. Just for the fact that UPN at least gives some of the scifi/fantasy shows a shot. Whereas the big 3 networks can low rated episodes after a short time. Here is the link (no pun intended):

    Signed and done.

    One of the few reasons why I watch the UPN network.

    Just signed.

    I can't believe this show is being cancelled. Isn't getting good ratings for UPN?

    What a shame. I really like this show.

    I enjoyed the show and made a point to watch it each week.

    As of Jan 13, the shows on UPN are ranked:

    1. Enterprise

    2. WWF Smackdown

    3. Buffy

    4. The Parkers

    5. One on One

    6. Girlfriends

    7. SU2

    8. The Hughleys

    9. Roswell

    10. UPN Night at the Movies

    (UPN doesn't have a lot of shows, does it?) So SU2 is in the bottom half. Worse yet, it loses a huge chunk of its lead-in, Enterprise, the #1 show. The thinking is (not that I totally agree) that it should do better.

    Think of all the shows NBC has put after Friends. While they are sometimes accurately touted as the "#1 new comedy", they lose too much of the Friends audience and get cancelled; year after year after year. This year's victim: Inside Schwartz -- it's gone.

    I watched a few SU2 episodes and couldn't get into it. I like Scifi's "The Chronicle" better.

    UPN programming in a whole is in jeopardy. CBS hired a new person as an entertainment president who says her first job is to unify the networks wild programming. She says the shows are to male driven and they need a new audience. I see alot of shows possibly disappearing in the future. I guess males are not a good group for ratings.[​IMG]
    NEWSBREAK...............this just in UPN has ordered the WWF to feature hot male nude oil wrestling for Smackdown to bring in female viewers.[​IMG]

    I heard the woman they hired worked at Lifetime. UGH! I can just imagine the crap she will put on.

    SU2 is one of my favorite shows.
    But lets see CBS/UPNs histories with good genre shows
    Now and Again - gone
    Magnificent 7 - gone
    Nowhere Man - gone
    American Gothic - gone
    She-Wolf of London - long gone
    With Roswell in jeopardy it looks like the only reasons to watch UPN is for Buffy and Enterprise. There is no reason to watch CBS.

    This show is actually quite good. I've started watching it this fall and really hope that it sticks around. Petition signed!

    This is one of the best shows on TV. . .it combines the best qualities of The X-Files and VIP. It's more entertaining than 95% of all the shows out there. I very rarely get into a new show (like once every few years), but this one has me hooked.

    I didn't know about the UPN/ CBS merger. As a consumer, I have yet to see a big merger of any kind result in something positive from my perspective. . .
