Last week, NBC debuted their much anticipated freshman drama "Do No Harm" to dismal ratings. The series, which followed the Jekyll and Hyde like story of Dr. Jason Cole (Steven Pasquale) premiered on NBC to 3.1 million viewers (.09 demo rating). These numbers give the show the dubious distinction of being the lowest-rated, in-season debut of any big four (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX) scripted series.
In its second week, ratings for "Do No Harm" didn't improve. Entertainment website TVLine reports that the series' ratings fell even further, bringing in just over 2 million viewers. Friday, disappointed with the lack of ratings, NBC officially cancelled the struggling drama.
Until further notice, NBC (9/653 HD for Denver Comcast subscribers) plans to air reruns of popular procedural "Law and Order: SVU" in the empty Thursday night time slot. TVLine reports that there has been no word on if the rest of "Do No Harm"'s thirteen episode order will air.
