Replacing THE FIRM starting March 1st!

Post by Chari910 » Fri Feb 03, 2012 2:04 pm

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.

Wonderful news indeed. What a great start to Saturday morning.

Can't wait to be able to watch this show online.

All the best to everyone involved in making this show, and especially to Jason. Hope it's a great success, both personally and professionally.

Hooroo,
Carole

About time... one step closer to ever getting to see it now. But I'll have to wait for the DVD anyway...

They've released a new poster as well:

I'm hoping that this means the show will be up for sale to a UK broadcaster soon - with a chance we'll get it in the Autumn (probably on satelite TV since the BBC is only buying in European detective drama at the moment, and Channel 4 has yet to announce its purchases) - but this UK site looks hopeful:

Otherwise I'm waiting on the (US) DVD too.

All good news!!!! I'm very happy although I'm not jazzed by a 10PM airing. I would have prefered a 9PM slot.

Yeah. Private Practice and The Mentalist have pretty good followings. Hope Awake can siphon some away.

Okay. Let's be happy it's not Friday or Saturday at 10:00. Also, Monday with Castle and Hawaii 5-0 would have been a lot of competition. We just have to wait—some more—and see.

I wonder if they will promote it during the Superbowl tonight, as the Superbowl is on NBC. This would be a perfect opportunity for them to spread the word. :shock:
