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.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
