NBC cancelled Philly-set drama "Do No Harm" after only two episodes. The show was a modern take on Jekyll and Hyde in which a surgeon (Steven Pasquale) turns into a cruel-intentioned badboy each night night. The cast also featured Phylicia Rashad, Samm Levine and Alana De La Garza.

The first episode of the show did not get off to a good start, carrying the dubious honor of the lowest rated in-season premiere since 1987 when current ratings metric were implemented. Last night's ratings only got worse, dropping 22 percent in the demo from the premiere. Episodes of "Law & Order: SVU" will air in its place for the next two weeks. 

Settings for "Do No Harm" included the School District of Philadelphia building and the Franklin Institute.
