NBC pulls The Law Firm, moves it to Bravo

NBC’s Apprentice-like The Law Firm has been pulled from its schedule. In its place on Thursday nights, NBC will air repeats of Will & Grace and Scrubs.

The first episode of the series was watched by just 5.08 million viewers, and the second episode lost more than a million of those viewers.

As the futon critic reports, “It’s not clear if NBC plans to reschedule the show’s six remaining installments for a later date or burn them off on cable sibling Bravo, which has been repurposing the episodes.”

Update: The show will move to NBC’s sibling network Bravo — airing next at 3 a.m. Sunday. Seriously. The third episode will also air at 2 a.m. Monday, and 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
