In roughly the same amount of time it took for me to learn how to use my heating unit in my new apartment, NBC canceled its midseason bomb Do No Harm. The Steven Pasquale-starring Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-esque medical drama premiered last Thursday, and promptly set a new record — it was the lowest rated in-season broadcast scripted series debut in history. Yes, that’s a mouthful, so we’ll paraphrase: no one watched it, and that’s bad.
This week, its ratings declined even further, to 2.2 million viewers and a .07 in its demo. So, from now on, you’ll be seeing reruns of Law & Order: SVU on Thursday nights.
This is pretty terrible news for NBC, but it’s even worse when you realize that roughly an hour ago, the network lost Christina Applegate from its struggling comedy Up All Night.
Wait… so when does The Voice come back, again?
