Do No Harm: Cancelled by NBC After Two Episodes

Do No Harm canceledTo absolutely no surprise, NBC has cancelled Do No Harm, their new Thursday night drama. The network has pulled it from the schedule already, leaving 10 episodes unaired.

Do No Harm revolves around Jason Cole, a neurosurgeon with an unusual dilemma. Every night at 8:25pm, he becomes someone else — an alternate and evil version of himself who goes by the name Ian Price. Jason has managed to keep his alter ego from appearing, thanks to medication. Unfortunately, the serum stops working suddenly and Ian appears, more dangerous than ever.

The TV show features the talents of Steven Pasquale, Alana de la Garza, Ruta Gedmintas, Phylicia Rashad, Mousa Kraish, Michael Esper, John Carroll Lynch, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Samm Levine.

The series premiered last week to just a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.12 million total viewers. Those were incredibly bad numbers.

How bad? It’s the lowest demo rating for a scripted series premiere in television history among the four major broadcast networks.

Since the pilot was released online a couple weeks before the television airing, might more people tune in for episode two? Nope. The second installment saw the ratings drop even further — to a 0.7 rating with 2.21 million viewers.

NBC has wasted no time in cancelling Do No Harm and reruns of Law & Order: SVU will fill the timeslot for the immediate future.

Production of the 12 episodes of Do No Harm was completed last month so this leaves 10 episodes unaired. There’s no word on when or if NBC will release them.

What do you think? Did you like Do No Harm? Why do you think so few people gave it a chance? What did you like about it?

I loved this show, please air the remaining episodes, we need closure for Jason if he is the one leaving. I hope his brother is fooled and Jason is the one staying. What a great character he has played in DO NO HARM. Very interesting and compelling show. Please bring DNO back. I couldn’t quit watching this show it was that intriguing to me.

I absolutely loved this showed. It was on a the wrong time of year though to get the following it deserves. The network needs to do better with the timing. The lead actor and the show premise were great.
