Tara’s rating have been sliding for awhile so the cancellation isn’t actually a big shock. Last season, Tara averaged more than 550,000 viewers while season three to date is down more than 40%, averaging about 325,000.

In addition to tonight’s, there are three episodes left in season three. The series finale is set to air on June 20th and is titled “The Good Parts.”

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that there won’t be a fourth season or was it time for United States of Tara to end?

    Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Say it isn’t so! I cannot believe they dropped the show. They added a couple of crappy shows to the line up and running the final season of WEEDS. With any luck the creators will lobby to replace the line up hole with Tara. If FOX can bring back Family Guy, then they can bring Tara back. It’s not as though they killed her off or gave anyone closure to the show. They just left viewers hanging.

    Hate that they cancelled and leave us wondering for the rest of time what happened to Tara to cause her DID! Is there a book? The writers should have a wrap up video that explains where they were going! Would love it to be brought back! I miss my Tara fix

    Please do reconsider to renew the show. It’s so awesome and I’m sure a lot of supporters of the show will be glad if the guy responsible in renewing the show will reconsider in the future. Look what happen to the show “Mad Men” please…..
    It only took me a whole 1 week to finish the Seasons 1-3 via Netflix video streaming, and I still can get enough of it. It has everything mostly the family values that you rarely find on TV shows these days. Final Verdict RECONSIDER RENEWING the show UNITED STATES OF TARA!!!!!!!!! Please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please
