NBC cancels 'The Firm'

NBC announced today that it is moving its low-rated legal drama The Firm to Saturday nights. That’s TV talk for “You’re fired.” The network will burn off the remaining episodes and be done. Well, even after the show is cancelled and forgotten, they’ll probably still be paying John Grisham for the right to use his title well into the next decade.

The move was hardly a surprise. Last night The Firm drew only 3 million viewers and notched a bulimic 0.8 rating in the adult (18-49) demographic. For the next few weeks, the slot will be assumed by repeats of Grimm.

Beginning on March 1, NBC will turn over Thursdays at 10 p.m. to a new series, Awake, starring Jason Isaacs. Intriguing premise. Check out the trailer which explains it far better than I ever could.
