Update: NBC confirms that Harry's Law is cancelled. Let the "will Harry's Law be shopped to another network" talk begin!

According to Kathy Bates twitter feed, Harry's Law has been canceled:

Yea, Tweeters. Sad news today. Harry's Law will not be renewed for a 3rd season. We are all terribly sad. Many thanks for all your support.

    TVBTN won! LOL

  • Justin

    Thank god.

  • Dan

    No Brainer

  • rob60990

    If we needed anymore proof that total viewers don’t matter.

  • SherLOCKED (The Mighty Cringe)

    thank goodness

  • Ray

    Oh my god. It’s official. NBC is run by absolute morons.

  • Julia

    This is a complete and total shock. Rumors of a show with horrible ratings possibly getting renewed were wrong????

  • Jos

    Good, season 2 stunk.

  • Bright

    Then I don’t understand why just 5 new dramas. that doesn’t fit to me

  • Petar

    After CW madness with nikita and this renewed will be to much i guess.Good that NBC new CEO is nit like CW ceo.

  • Jon Haven

    The TVBTN crew should mass tweet the director who said “Who is TV By the Numbers?” That would be sweet. XD

  • Ray

    @Dan – Oh yeah, complete no brainer to cancel the scripted show which brings in the greatest number of viewers!

  • forg

    When the demos are barely passable even for CW, it’s really hard to think that a show will be renewed by a major network, no matter how high total viewers are

    And yes TBTN won! So congrats Bill and Robert? :d

  • SarahL

    Good to see NBC getting rid some of is deadweight.

    Robert and Bill, congrats on this one.

  • John A

    U know it would have been great if renewed. So many surprising renewels today and this wouldve been most surprising.

  • Tom

    I am literally not gloating, but can we get a permanent page linked to Numbers 101, showing HL’s demos and overall viewers yet eventual cancellation, that we can link to anytime anyone mentions total viewers?

  • forg

    Anyway, for what is worth, NBC should have made Harry’s Law a 10 pm show. The way it was scheduled this season, felt like it was just a cannon fodder

  • Tony ^_^

    I thought it would be renewed due to the gazillion viewers it has and that NBC would work something out with advertisers. But this just proves that demo is more important than the number of viewers.

  • Brittney

    And no one is shocked.

  • DavI’d

    Haha usually I wouldn’t care if a show I dislike is cancelled but those cocky comments from Kathy and the EP made me hope it got cancelled.
