NBC has announced their fall teevee schedule and “Harry’s Law” didn’t make the cut. The drama, based in Cincinnati, got decent ratings but those watching the show are too damn old and fourth place network NBC wants to attract younger viewers.
I just have to ask this question to the suits at NBC: With you being in fourth place and all, aren’t you lucky to attract any viewers?
Honestly, I don’t care. Kathy Bates was the star of the show and I’ve always liked her but not enough to sit down for an hour to watch the show. I’m old and the show was on too late for me (lying, I have no idea what time it is on).
All the regular commercial networks want to attract people 18 to 49. If you’re not that age, you’re considered over the hill and these networks consider you dead. Probably the cable networks feel the same way but I’m not going to do any research on it because it won’t mean anything to me.
I stopped watching teevee on a regular basis when I was in my 40’s—back when the networks cared about me. I didn’t care about them then and now that I’m 58, they don’t care about me either. I guess we’re even.
So sorry “Harry’s Law” fans. Please know you’re old but look on the bright side. You can still watch “60 Minutes.” So far, that hasn’t been canceled. Not yet.
