The Firm has lost NBC’s Thursday night account.
After dragging its heels for weeks in the ratings, NBC is pulling the John Grisham-inspired legal drama from its weekday lineup.
Instead, NBC’s new high-concept drama Awake will take its place starting March 1.
The Firm will move to Saturday nights at 9 p.m. for the remainder of its run – so, yes, it’s basically cancelled, no surprise there. Last night’s episode delivered only 3 million viewers and an anemic 0.8 rating in the adult demo. Awake stars Jason Isaacs as a detective who finds he is leading a complex double life after a tragic accident.
