Episode 02-02: Wednesday, 9/28/11
Week two’s installment held steady at a 1.2 in the demo and 7.63 million. It’s positive that the show didn’t lose any viewers but these numbers are still too low.
Season average: 1.2 demo and 7.58 million.

Episode 02-01: Wednesday, 9/21/11
The new timeslot has not been kind to Bates and company. The season debut attracted a poor 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.53 million viewers. That’s a decline of 45% in the demo compared to the series premiere last January and a loss of 14% when compared to the last episode of season one. Fans should be very afraid for the future of this series.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 9.39 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Harry’s Law TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?

Kathy Bates is mailing it in. This show is silly. Bates with a gun, how childishly clichéd. 2 eps and I was out in season one. I think it was the lawyer firm combination shoe store in the middle of a poor neighborhood that left me laughing. Bates is a good actress but in this she’s just cashing the checks.

karen p. November 18, 2011 at 11:34 am

I don’t get it when people say it’s another Boston Legal now! How?

Is it because they are not in a shoe store? So, that doesn’t make it the same as BL.
Like Adam said in one of the earlier shows, “their shoes!”
Yes, their shoes-that don’t fit.

Jann November 18, 2011 at 11:28 am

Love the changes. I have opened my mind to new possibilities. I think it’s better then last season!

I love Cassie and Ollie. Very few people have seen their deeper sides. Everyone thinks Ollie is arrogant, he’s not. He got Cassis to open up. Most men would have taken her first response and left it at that…he dug for more. He got her to open up about something very painful. Also, the way he handled her in the end shows his “rea” side.

I think these two are a GREAT addition to the show.

Harry is great but the show can’t be just her…..I didn’t get the “shoe” thing. It was dumb….this is better.

It’s not another “lawyer” show as a few keep saying. Harry’s is STILL the same. The quotes in the show are the best!

This season rocks and so do the additions…..these two new people are amazing actors….they add a lot to the show. Wish people would actually pay attention to them and see they are interesting instead of just whining they want the others back!

As stated above, dropping Jenna & Malcolm was a mistake. As was moving the office. I watch the show, but it’s going to lose viewers with the changes. Going back to the old office might work for awhile.

Jeanie November 4, 2011 at 9:28 am

Do not cancel!! It’s a great show! As in life and business, employees come and go!!

Tha Critic November 3, 2011 at 3:25 pm

Love the show but two things screwed it up for me. 1. Time slot: It competes with “Modern Family” which I really like a lot and other big shows. 2. Change in format- it seemed to be lighter in tone and have more humor. Like someone else said, it was unique with its setting in a shoe store. Now Jenna and Malcolm are gone and other than Harry, Adam and Tommy the other two characters are boring.

Catherine November 3, 2011 at 10:02 am

They changed it in to Boston Legal 2.0. I really liked it when it was just the few of them and the worked in a shoe shop doing local cases mostly pro bono. Now it is just another slick las show that I won’t be watching any more. Sad to say ……

Mharsela November 3, 2011 at 9:55 am

I like the show but I don’t really like the changes, I hate to say this but I don’t think it would make it for a next season. I miss the original concept and actors.

Anonymous November 2, 2011 at 5:44 pm

i like the orginal harry’s law better

Khepra Khem November 2, 2011 at 1:15 pm

The show lost its edge bring back the old show in the urban setting

RAISINKING October 29, 2011 at 3:09 pm

I agree with “”dido”" they should have stayed in the little office, something different. I also liked Jenna in the program. They have brought in too many different people. Should have kept it.
I really enjoy the program, something different, or at least it was.

dido October 21, 2011 at 12:25 pm

I think that was a big mistake getting rid of Jenna….and taking Harry out of her little office.Now it just seems like all the other lawyer shows. We really enjoyed the first season but do not like all the new changes….but Kathy Bates rocks !!!!!

Cheryl D. October 20, 2011 at 10:54 am

IanGto, I totally agree with you.

She does not take any guff from anyone, which makes her a tough cookie. I wish I had the
guts to put people in their place like she does.

It is a legal show that you can watch without having a law degree to understand it.

I do not understand why the big change. Sometimes, when you change things, it does not promote success. Why fix what is not broken?

I truely hope for a third year.

IanGTO October 18, 2011 at 9:36 pm

Harry’s Law is one of the best shows on T.V! I LOVE Kathy Bates and she gives a fl,awless preformance in every episode. I do agree that erasing the orginal plot idea has been a mistake. What we love about Harry is her defiance toward an unjust legal system and her belief that not all hope is gone. She shows us that if we stand up for what we belive in we can change the legal systems prejudices, corruption ,greed and sterotypes. This season the writers and the excetives took that away from us without any valid reason. I think Harry’s Law deserves a third season and that the powers that be should give Harry back to its viewers. I hope to see another season and many more but with the Harry WE love and cheer for.

China November 11, 2011 at 1:01 am

I agree it should be renewed. We thought adding Mark Valley was a good addition.

karen p. November 18, 2011 at 11:36 am

I love the addition of Mark Valley!

Georgia October 14, 2011 at 10:32 am

I never miss an episode, as I adore Kathy Bates, but I am not happy with the season. Last year Harry’s Law was unique! The shoe store, the gun sliging Harry in the tough neighborhood is gone, helping those in the neighborhood that were in truble, having a gang member protect her…that concept is missing!! The other people posting that it’s turned into “Cincinnati Legal” are right. Getting rid of Jenna and Malcolm was a mistake.

Anonymous October 17, 2011 at 12:49 am

I agree with you 100%.I can’t understand why the big change was made.I loved it last year.Think someone made a big mistake.

Diane November 3, 2011 at 11:19 am

Agree with Georgia!!! Now, it’s just another corporate legal drama. Wouldn’t be surprised if it gets canceled. Seems like whenever a network moves a show to another night, the show invariably ends up being canceled. Why couldn’t they have left Harry’s Law the way it was? It was much better last season!
