Viewers Can’t Save It; NBC Cancels “Harry’s Law”

In what was poised to be a blow to those confident that adults 18-49 numbers are what define success at the broadcast television networks, rumors late this week said NBC was planning to renew “Harry’s Law.”

The move would have shocked insiders; though “Harry’s Law” is routinely the network’s most-watched scripted shows, it is an abysmal performer–and one of the ratings-starved network’s worst–in the key young adults demographic.

That shock was not to be, however. NBC officially canceled the series Friday, meaning its second season, the result of a lucky renewal in its own right, will be its last.
