After only 2 episodes, NBC has pulled the plug on its struggling freshman series Do No Harm. Starting immediately in the 10pm Thursday night-time slot, NBC will air repeats of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
The series starred Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) as Dr. Jason Cole; a highly respected neurosurgeon who has it all: a lucrative career, confident charm and the gift of compassion. But he also has a deep, dark secret. One morning when he wakes up disoriented in a wrecked hotel room amidst several near-naked women he’s never seen before, he knows one thing: It’s happening again. Every night at the same hour, something inside Jason changes, leaving him almost unrecognizable — seductive, devious and borderline sociopathic.
The series premiered to the lowest numbers ever recorded by the four big networks for a scripted drama series. Things only became worse for the second episode which only had 2.1 million viewers.
Two more shows have joined the growing list of freshman shows that have been cancelled. According to TVWise, ABC has decided to pull the plug on both 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort. Both shows will finish their initial order of 13 episodes.
Both shows got off to shaky starts on the network with 666 Park Avenue drawing the lowest ratings between the two series. Right now the network is not sure what shows will replace them. To find out more details on these cancellations, head on over to TVWise!
What should come as no surprise, NBC has decided to put its freshman comedy Animal Practice to sleep. You know your show is in trouble when the monkey gets more attention then the cast of the series.
In its last airing, it drew a very low 3.8 million total viewers. It will air its final episode on November 7th and then will be replaced by Whitney the following week.
Some thought it would be the FOX series Mob Doctor, others thought it would be ABC’s 666 Park Avenue. Unfortunately for the CBS freshman series Made in Jersey, it is the first casualty of the Fall 2012 season. After only 2 episodes, CBS has decided to cancel the series.
The series debuted with 7.7 millions viewers, but fell off 30 percent during the second episode. Made in Jersey followed a streetwise attorney born and raised in New Jersey joins a posh New York City law firm, where she must defend her clients while surviving her colleagues’ skepticism and her Italian American family’s constant interruptions.
