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 is a good show!! Don’t blame the show for low ratings when they didn’t even advertise it much. For other shows, I see so many promos and trailers on youtube. For this, only one.

  2. CHUCK says

    I love this show! It was poorly advertised as everyone that I talked to about it had never heard of it. If it had been released and advertised along with the other new shows, it would have come out as the best new show. What a waste if it is not brought back!

  3. Lorna says

    This show was not given a fair chance, but SHOULD be! I recently started watching it, and found out it had already been cancelled – I don’t think many people knew about it. If NBC wants to let it go, some other network should take it on. With better advertising, it could be a leader in primetime.

  4. Missy says

    This is my favorite show for the summer!!!! Please order a second season and advertise more. Get the word out. I heard about thid show from a coworker and now I am hooked. I cannot wait for next week’s episode. They keep getting better and better!!

  5. Lisa Cohen says

    I love this show! KEEP IT! I agree, if NBC is willing to give it up then cable should pick it up. It’s gotten much better as it’s gone along, I dig it and hope it has life….

  6. emz says

    please bring back this show, it was worth it i cant believed they will not continue, such amazing show. please bring back.

    I really like the show and don’t think it should be cancelled. Especially since there isn’t anything on in the summer that is very good. My only complaint about the show is how the character could fix a lot of his problems by just being honest. Obviously not with everyone, but with a couple close people. It just seems like he won’t share his secret because the show would loose some of its tension, but I’m sure they could build in suspense in other ways.

    I am totally enthralled with this show. I have been watching on my pvr. I couldn’t watch it when it aired but am catching up to it now! Excellent show that wasn’t given a chance!
    SHOULD NOT BE CANCELLED!!

  9. J S BRANCH says

    I like the show I think it was not given a chance. I think it should be renewed. Each episode gets better so pleas bring it back.

    This is such a great show it’s so sad to see a show like this go off air. Too bad no one will see this and there’s nothing I can do. I think they just need better advertising cause no one knows about this show. They just need to play more commercials about it. It’s a very interesting show and I wish there was some way they can continue to play it.

  11. Mary Ann Monahan says

    What a shame! Great stretch from Rescue Me for Pasquale. I love the show and the possibilities for it. Not happy to see it go, how can we get it back?…send it to cable… Replace Dexter on Showtime… Oh yeah!
