Part of the DC Comics universe, the comedy follows Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens), the new Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. The cast also includes Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi, Ron Funches, and Christina Kirk.
Things haven’t been looking good for Powerless since the show debuted in February to dismal ratings. So far, only nine episodes of the comedy have aired, earning an average rating of .71 in the 18-49 demo and only 2.29 million viewers. This makes Powerless the lowest-rated and least-watched NBC series for the 2016-2017 season.
In April, NBC pulled the series from its Thursday night schedule, effectively cancelling it. It’s unclear when or if the network will air any of the show’s remaining episodes.
What do you think? Did you see Powerless? Do you think NBC should’ve given the show a second chance?
