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.
