It was a very poor start for Do No Harm. While the premiere did a bit better than the episode of The Firm that aired in this timeslot a year earlier, that’s little consolation. This season, Rock Center with Brian Williams has been airing Thursdays at 10pm and has consistently been one of NBC’s weakest performers in primeteime. In its first showing, Do No Harm nearly matched Rock Center’s series low record. Not good.

    This was an excellent series, I love it. I live in Romania and all my friends here like it as well and we all agree it was weird. How the f…k could you have such low ratings with it? Are all people there brain washed with those stupid really craP and can’t see a good one? WTF guys! Don’t cancel it, some of us need to see quality TV.

    BTW, also being a watch collector I went and bought a Zenith watch, the same Jan wears on the show. A fan here.

    Loved Do No Harm to the very end. I know we’ll never get a season 2 but the least NBC could do is release it on BLURAY and DVD with creator David Schulner doing a vid stating what would’ve happened with the rest of the series. I continuesly contact them about how i can get my hands on a copy but they keep blowing me off, I told them I’d be more then willing to pay. I know it’d never be the same as the show but I’d be open to a conclusion to the series in novel form. At least in my eyes it’d give the fans some closure.

    I absolutely adored this show. I still will. They can’t cancel without some kind of ending that will at least put the fans at rest. BRING IT BACK!!!!

  5. Mia says

    I loved this show It was awesome and when I first saw it I couldn’t wait for the next episode it made me cringe for more!

  6. Lin Sou says

    I enjoyed every episode especially the season finally. I would loved to watch continued seasons of this show. It would be a disappointment if it is canceled.
