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.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    luv the show and all the characters! I watch the show when it comes on and also on demand! The last episode and ending left me wanting more. Just coz “goodbye Jason” was said…doent mean. It has 2b the end. Surely hoping the network reconsiders and adds another season.

    I watched the first two episodes and was really upset they cancelled it that quick. I thought it was great! When I found out they were going to air the rest of the season this summer, I was thrilled. I haven’t missed a single episode, and from day one have loved the show! In my opinion it is one of the very best on the air, and there aren’t that many really good ones out there! The shows like “Do No Harm” that are that great, unfortunately, are usually cancelled, only to keep shows, that should have never made it to day one. I would be ecstatic to see a season 2 of “Do No Harm”! Here’s to hoping!

    Do no harm started slow I admit, but as time went on,and we got deeper into the story,I was totally hooked.NBC cancelled it prematurely. After only 2 episodes, they determined that this show should be cancelled. The cliffhanger came from left field. Now I want to know more! They already decided it will not return, but hopefully maybe, if the home audience makes enough noise, maybe they will give us a few episodes to explain the first season. They jumped the gun……..again.

      NBC has me and my friends watching it after years of avoiding stupid programs and now they want to ca cel it? Sometimes I think they set certain programs up for failure by giving them bad time slots. Putting anything at all to compete with Person of Interest and canceling it because it couldn’t compete was just stupidity for NBC. Do No zhathaway is interesting and intelligent. Don’t cancel it, and ifNBC is stupid enough to cancel it anyway then another network should pick it up. This was really good.
