NBC replacing 'The Firm' with 'Awake'

Posted on


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.
