    Has the show been cancelled?

    I don't see it on the preview schedules for next fall.

      ABC pulls 'Commander in Chief'

      LOS ANGELES, May 2 (UPI) -- ABC TV has put an abrupt term limit on its freshman drama, "Commander in Chief."
      The network Tuesday announced it was pulling the Geena Davis series for the rest of May sweeps and running the newsmagazine "Primetime" in its 10 p.m. Thursday slot for the final three weeks of the season, Zap2it.com reported.
      The series started as one of the most-watched in the fall and Davis won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of the first female U.S. president.
      However, two extended breaks and behind-the-scenes changes as well as a schedule move from Tuesday to Thursday all contributed to a deep slide in ratings.
      "Commander's" three Thursday night shows have averaged about 7.5 million viewers, which means half the viewers who tuned in during the fall are now focused elsewhere, Zap2it.com said.
      ABC said it would probably air the final three episodes sometime during the summer.
