One episode of the medical drama will go unaired.
August 24, 2011
ABC has announced that the first-season finale of Combat Hospital has been moved up one week from September 13 to September 6. What this means for its fans is that one episode of the freshman medical drama will go unaired on the network.
The move also doesn't bode well for the future of the show - on US shores at least. Combat Hospital is a Canadian-produced series that also airs on Global Television in Canada. If ABC opts not to move forward with a second season of the show, it is quite possible that Global will pick it up.
A similar situation happened with drama The Listener, which NBC originally started airing for a Summer run in 2009, only to pull it from the schedule after a handful of episodes. The series continued on Canadian airwaves and was recently renewed for a third season.
As it stands, the future of Combat Hospital is unknown at this time, but ABC's decision to leave an episode of its first season on the shelf puts chances of a second one in serious doubt.

How do we get these comments to ABC? This will be the 5th show that I have been interested in that will have been canceled in a year. I think if this show gets canceled, a boycott is in order. I'm so tired of this. You get into these shows and then they just disappear with no warning. I thought the general public decided what the general public wants to see? Are we not the general public?

Please don't cancel this show. It is one of the best shows that I have seen. Why do they cancel the good shows? Who rates these shows? Please someone pick up this show. It deserves to be seen.

Please don't cancel this show!!! There is no more brothers and sisters, Chicago Code. All there is, is reality TV. Not all of us like the reality shows. Leave us something please!!!!

Please dont get rid of this show I really enjoyed it and I watched every episode religiously Chicago Code is another really good show that has neem taken off the air after the first season. I donÃ¨t think its right these networks dont look at the facts before taking shows off the air. It's the public who watch these shows so we should have a say in what stays and what goes

Please don't cancel Combat Hospital!!! You cancelled some of my favorite shows already. Do you want me to stop watching ABC alltogether??? You cancelled Off the Map, and The Deep End....At least you didn't cancel Rookie Blue...

If they dont bring it back it just shows how stupid they are and they like to air stupid reality shows that have no reality to them how stupid can you be.

This was a really great show. I have been curious to when it was starting back. I think it would be a smart decision on ABC's behalf to bring it back. Is a great show. My whole family watches it. Please keep it going.

I just looked it up on another website. IT says that one of the stares said that it was cancelled. Apparently it is supposed to be the show with the most viewers to be cancelled after one season. But I hope that it isn't true.
