Can you please tell us why JAG on CBS was canceled?
—Don P., Wisconsin

After 10 seasons, JAG aired its final episode in April because of low ratings. "We've had an amazing run, particularly for a series that was once canceled," says Donald P. Bellisario, the show's creator and executive producer. "Over the last 10 years we have had an opportunity to shine a spotlight on our armed forces and call attention to issues of significant importance to our country as well as the men and women who serve it." JAG is military speak for Judge Advocate General corps, the elite legal wing of officers trained as lawyers who investigate, prosecute and defend those accused of crimes in the military. The series featured actors David James Elliott and Catherine Bell.
