NBC Pulls Two Shows Off the Schedule Deadline
NBC sent a pretty clear signal to two series that are waiting to find out whether they will be renewed. Deadline.com reports that the network pulled the midseason dramas “Believe” and “Crisis” off the schedule for the last Sunday of the May sweeps period.
The move reinforces the perception that neither show has much hope of being renewed by the network, the report notes. The network pulled the two series for a “Women of SNL” special that will air in their place May 18.
Both "Believe" and "Crisis" have been struggling, the story notes. Both shows drew 1.0 ratings in adults 18-49 in the fast nationals this past Sunday. The report notes that NBC has had a hard time bringing its Sunday night schedule up to speed after losing football at the end of the NFL season.
