NBC's 'Outlaw' Officially Canceled and Moved
"Outlaw" is officially the first canceled show on NBC this Fall. The production had been halted last week, pending the number which October 8 episode pulled. Turns out Friday night 10/9c slot is still tough on new series for the rating was stuck on the 4.6 million average.
Eight episodes of the series have been produced and four of them have aired. The final four episodes will air on Saturdays at 8/7c beginning this week while the empty Friday night slot will be filled by a second hour of "Dateline". "School Pride" which led "Outlaw" remains intact on its 8/7c slot.
"Outlaw", starring Jimmy Smits, follows Justice Garza who quit the law he believes is flawed to start his own practice as an attorney. Determined to represent "the little guy," he's using his inside knowledge of the justice system to take on today's biggest legal cases and make plenty of powerful people unhappy along the way.
When it debuted on Wednesday, September 15, it drew well above 10 million viewers with the lead-in from "America's Got Talent" finale. When it was moved to Fridays, the rating immediately plunged to 4.8 million viewers. As comparison, CBS' "Blue Bloods" drew 13 million viewers on the same night and at the same time.
