This is what happens when you give an unknown entity a guaranteed 22 episode order. You get screwed when it fails!!! And that is what has happened to The Firm. It has failed…..MISERABLY.
The Firm has been assigned to the dreadful Saturday slot for the remainder of the series (which I feel pretty confident in calling it its first and FINAL season.) This show was so bad it couldn’t even get a Friday night slot. It got bumped to a night where no one watches TV!!!
In its place, the new thriller Awake will premiere March 1st. In the meantime, repeats of Grimm will air until Awake is ready for its premiere. I am anxious to watch this pilot again (after it’s been reworked.) I watch the original pilot and really didn’t like it. But I am willing to give it another chance.
This NBC’s last chance to make something pop in the Thursday night 10pm time slot. Let’s see how Awake fares.
