'Do No Harm' Pulled After 2 Episodes

'Do No Harm' Pulled From NBC Schedule After 2 Episodes

NBC's new drama "Do No Harm" has been pulled from the network's schedule after two episodes, the network said Friday.

The series got off to a very poor start in the ratings with its Jan. 31 premiere, drawing a 0.9 rating/3 share in the key 18-49 demo -- the lowest rating for an in-season scripted premiere in the history of the four networks. The show dropped another 22 percent to a 0.7/2 with its second episode Thursday.

The network will run repeats of "Law & Order: SVU" in its Thursdays at 10 p.m. timeslot for the next two weeks.

The "Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde"-themed series starred "Rescue Me" alum Steven Pasquale as Dr. Jason Cole, a neurosurgeon with an evil alternate personality that emerges every night at 8:25 p.m. and stays around exactly 12 hours. Which, interestingly, is not that much shorter than the series lasted.

I know! I didn't even bother because the commercials were so stupid.

I would have checked it out if it had been a cable drama like it should have been given the premise.

That timeslot is dead for NBC, they need to give up for that specific slot. In general, Thursdays are a difficult night for them. This looked like a good show (and had a good cast), but it should've been put on Friday or on a night with a better lead in.

I saw the first episode and thought it was decent. Not as good as 'The Following' though!

I don't know what they were thinking with that one, it looked horrible and creeped me out. It was on every bus and billboard in town. Sorry, lived the Jeckyll and Hyde thing in real life, I don't want to see it on TV.
