If this doesn’t spell possible cancellation, I don’t know what does. Outlaw is the first show of the new TV season to hit production hiatus. After airing only 3 episodes, NBC has decided to put a halt on production with 5 episodes left to air. The plan is to follow the progression of ratings for the next few weeks before making a final decision on the show’s fate, according to a report from EW. Outlaw garnered around 5 million viewers for it’s premiere episode, with it’s most recent episode only picking up 4.7 million.
Outlaw’s appeal is it’s star Jimmy Smits, but we’re not sure what else is going for it. The show’s premise stands behind Smits’ character resigning from his position on the Supreme Court bench to tackle law from the other side. Ironically enough, Outlaw is produced under Conan O’Brien’s production team, Conaco. Interesting team on NBC these days, eh? Conan is not involved with the day-to-day decisions with the show, however. Outlaw will continue to air in it’s 10pm EST slot on Fridays on NBC. Could it follow the fates of Lone Star and My Generation? Are you liking this show? Do you care if it gets canned? Let us know what you think in our FORUMS or comment below!
