CBS to air 'encore' episode of The Unit

dennis haysbert the unitCBS is trying to build on the great ratings it had for the premiere of The Unit on Tuesday night, by offering an 'encore' episode of the pilot this Saturday. The Unit premiered up against new ABC comedy Sons & Daughters and against ratings juggernauts American Idol and House. So, while it didn't beat AI or the unfriendly doc, it did kick ABC's sorry butt by more than 10 million viewers. The Unit, about a covert, special ops miltiary unit, stars former 24 president Dennis Haysbert and is executive produced by genius playwright David Mamet.

The sad thing about this is the general consensus (and Jonathan's review) that The Unit really sucks, while Sons & Daughters is terrific (just ask Joel).

I thought this show was AWESOME!! i love crime/cop shows and i guess this isn't really either but it fits into the category. I think that the acting is fine and it has to be a little "over the top". It's a secret unit..i mean really. overall FABULOUS!!

Maybe I'm just not a good American, but I thought this show sucked. It was badly written, badly acted, and way over the top. It's a shame Dennis Haysbert couldn't find something better. He's just wasted in a show like this. As for Scott Foley -- he is SO wrong for this part. And those wives! They're straight out of Stepford!

"Sons and Daughters" rocks! These other shows are great too but they need to be moved to another time slot.

The premise of this show is intriguing and timely. Unfortunately, the acting is horrendous, the only thing that kept me watching for the full hour was the HD.
