NBC Yanks 'Boomtown' from Lineup
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has pulled its struggling sophomore drama "Boomtown" from its Friday schedule after just two weeks on the air. The network hopes to jump start its performance on the night by returning former Friday, 10:00/9:00c time slot holder "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" to its old home, albeit in repeat form, beginning this week.

In addition, the Peacock will swap the time slots of freshman dramedy "Miss Match" and "Dateline NBC" as the newsmagazine will now open the night at 8:00/7:00c. This week however, viewers can look for another rebroadcast of Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" to fill the 8:00/7:00c hour, leading into "Miss Match" at 9:00/8:00c. All of the moves were announced via press release this afternoon (read the story).

As for "Boomtown," NBC has at least four more episodes of the critically-acclaimed drama in the can. It's not clear if production resumed on the show's seventh episode this week after a two-week delay (read the story).

For both of its airings, "Boomtown" has finished dead last among the three major networks in the Friday, 10:00/9:00c hour among households and adults 18-49, losing to ABC's "20/20" and CBS' "The Handler."
