Or end up having its season be finished out on Saturday nights, like The Firm.

I think they're looking for a dark Dexter type show but I don't see it happening.

Not really any new info here, but I did laugh at the tweak to the standard "air time" line.

'Do No Harm' a historic ratings bomb for NBC
2 hr ago | By Sona Charaipotra

Expectations were hardly sky-high for NBC's new Jekyll and Hyde drama "Do No Harm," but the new series, which premiered Thursday at 10 p.m., bombed big time, bringing in, according to Deadline.com, only a 0.9 share and a mere 3.13 million viewers -- the lowest rated in-season premiere ever by any scripted show on the big four networks.

The low turn-out likely means a quick death for the series, which stars Steven Pasquale -- late of "Rescue Me" -- as Dr. Jason Cole, a neurosurgeon whose life faces upheaval when an alternate personality, Ian Price, takes over his body every night. Phylicia Rashad co-stars as medical director Vanessa Young.

In the tough TV climate these days, networks shows have at best two weeks to prove themselves, and if "Do No Harm" fails to raise its numbers next week, it will likely be the latest mid-seasoner to get the axe -- although NBC has yet to pull the plug.

So what's to blame? The pre-launch marketing no doubt played a factor, as did a soft lead in with "The Office" at 1.9. The show also suffered some stiff competition from ABC's "Scandal" and CBS's "Elementary."

Of course, then there's the Jekyll and Hyde premise -- a tried-but-frequently​-failed idea when it comes to TV, with NBC's 2008 Christian Slater-starrer "My Own Worst Enemy," which also died a quick death, despite more promotion and star power involved.

"Do No Harm" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC -- at least for now.

Too bad. Although not quite unexpected. I love that dude from 'Rescue Me' and I thought the pilot was mindless fun. I need shows like that sometimes. Apparently, 99% of the U.S. isn't too interested.

Too bad about the ratings. I liked the show, guess it gets cancelled next week.

Really glad I watched this week's episode while doing laundry. Wouldn't want to get too invested (like I did with Awake and so many others). It was nice to see Samm Levine on-screen again

NBC should really give up on that time slot with original dramatic programming.

It sucks that this is getting such low ratings. I'm enjoying it. It looks like they are moving towards a situation where he can control, to some extent, his alternate personality - kind of merge the two. It could be pretty good if it was given time to develop, but sadly I don't think it will last.

Where have you been? It was cancelled after Thursday's airing. No more will be seen.

If Fallon does get Tonight a weekly big budget Leno show there might not be a bad idea.

Both because of how bad that shot is generally and it'd keep Leno around in case Fallon fails.

Has anyone else been watching the new episodes that NBC has been airing on Saturday nights? I've actually been enjoying the show, and am glad that NBC decided to burn off the unaired episodes..
