NBC Recuses 'The Law Firm' After Two Weeks
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has quietly yanked its David E. Kelley-produced reality series "The Law Firm" after just two weeks on the air.

Repeats of "Will & Grace" and "Scrubs" are set to fill the Thursday, 9:00/8:00c hour this week and next according to scheduling updates released by the network today.

A lackluster 5.08 million viewers tuned into "Firm's" premiere on July 28, building off its repeat lead-ins "Joey" (4.22 million) and "Will & Grace" (4.37 million). Said numbers dipped to 4.04 million (or 20.47%) for its second episode on August 4, according to preliminary Nielsen data, down from both "Joey" (4.36 million) and "Will & Grace" (4.09 million).

A note on the show's official web site indicates the remaining six installments will be burned off on cable sibling Bravo, which had been repurposing the series following its run on NBC. The next "new" episode is scheduled to air on Sunday, August 14 at 3:00 a.m. eastern time with encores on Monday, August 15 at 2:00 a.m. and Tuesday, August 16 at 6:00 p.m. (Click here for Bravo's full schedule for "The Law Firm.")

Kelley, David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Jonathan Pontell and Robert Breech are the executive producers of "The Law Firm," which comes from Renegade 83, Inc. in association with David E. Kelley Productions and 20th Century Fox Television.
