"Do No Harm" got canceled by NBC after just two episodes. Low ratings are to blame for the show getting bumped so quickly, making it the latest show from NBC to get the ax early on. According to a report from late Friday (Feb. 8), the network has chosen to begin airing "Law & Order: SVU" reruns in its place for the immediate future.
There had been a lot of buzz about this new show Steven Pasquale and Alana De La Garza (pictured), including quite a few promos and magazine advertisements as the premiere episode got closer. The viewers just didn't turn out, though, and it now holds the mark for the lowest ratings ever for an in-season premiere on one of the big networks. Only an estimated 3.13 million viewers turned in for the pilot episode.
On Thursday night (Feb. 7), NBC aired the second episode of the show and viewers dropped again. The worst mark was in the key 18-49 demographic, where the show posted a mark of just 0.7 for the night. It didn't help that the lead-in show failed to bring in viewers either, leading to early rumors of "1600 Penn" getting canceled soon as well.
As if "Do No Harm" getting canceled wasn't bad enough for the fans who did enjoy it, having the show replaced by reruns of another program is certainly not going to come as good news. Stars Steven Pasquale and Alana De La Garza will need to look for some new work now.
