NBC Cancels New Shows
The Peacock also said that Chicago Fire spinoff Chicago P.D. will premiere Jan. 8 in the former 10 p.m. Wednesday timeslot of its forerunner, which now airs on Tuesdays.
Ironside, starring Blair Underwood, will vacate that time period after its fourth episode airs Oct. 23, in favor of editions of Dateline and various specials (including Saturday Night Live-themed specials, as well as consecutive holiday outings for Kelly Clarkson and Michael Buble in December) through the end of 2013.
Meanwhile, Welcome to the Family is being axed immediately after three episodes.
NBCs Thursday programming has been struggling since the start of the fall season, and even though Family showed a slight gain in its most recent airing, the newcomer remained stuck with a sub-1.0 rating among adults 18-49. A night earlier, Ironside fared little better with a 1.1 rating.
