"The Loop" is an American sitcom that ran from March 15, 2006 to July 1 2007 on the Fox Network. The show starred Bret Harrison as "Sam", a young professional trying to balance the needs of his social life with the pressures of working at the corporate headquarters of TransAlliance Airways, a major U.S. airline. Set in the city of Chicago, whose downtown loop area acted as the setting for most of the show. The show's theme song is "Hockey Monkey" by James Kochalka Superstar and the Zambonis.

The show was renewed for a second season consisting of 13 episodes on May 12 by Fox. cite web|url=,0,2733413.story| title='The Loop' Gets a Reprieve|| date=2006-05-18| accessdate=2008-02-12] It was one of only two sitcoms renewed for the 2006-2007 season on FOX along with "The War at Home".

In the second season, almost all of the show took place in the workplace, and less of it with Sam's friends. The producers stated they found most of the comedy to be with Sam and his co-workers and they wanted to expand on that.

On November 28 2006, it was announced that the show's second season episode order had been reduced from thirteen to ten, with Fox's crowded spring schedule believed to be the main reason for the reduction.

The show was cancelled on May 17 2007, before the second season was even broadcast. FOX eventually burned off the remaining episodes on Sundays beginning June 10, 2007. [ [ Fox Confirms Cancellation] ]
