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.

    “Ridiculous 8 Million + Viewers and it gets canceled I hope that a cable network possibly TNT or FX Picks It Up !!!”


    Very, very, very unlikely. I think the majority of cable channels skew younger than broadcast ones anyway, or at least most that produce original scripted primetime content.

    So, what does NBC do with the remaining episodes left to air this season? Pull them?

    Harry’s Law is a trending topic on twitter now

    “”And no one is shocked”

    Except Kathy Bates of course. She looks so foolish now.”

    How? There are a lot of people who don’t pay attention to the ratings of their show much like many actors refuse to/just simply don’t watch the movies they’re in.

    Hell dude some DIRECTORS OR PRODUCERS or whoever the hell it might be don’t even check into the ratings of their own shows. Silly sounding I know, but it’s true.

    C’mon people if Awake got canceled and Rock Center got pulled, did You really think Harry’s Law had a shot?

  • Sally

    What ? 8 million plus viewers and you cancel ? We are sick of watching trash on tv. Bring Harry’s LW back.

    Pretty soon there will be no viewers period watching scripted network tv because the shows are idiotic. It’s getting there already. Then where is your demo?

    NBC expects to rely on SNF and the Olympics to foot their bills, I guess?

    I’m done with this network. And my father worked for an affiliate of them for many years, back when nbc was something to be proud of.

    Move HL to a other channel, please!!!!

  • Flame

    TV by the Numbers 1-0 Kathy Bates

  • Crystal Ilsley

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I love this show. How could they do this to us????

  • Max

    Does anyone know how many episodes the show still has to air?

  • Ultima

    So, what does NBC do with the remaining episodes left to air this season? Pull them?

    The remaining two episodes will air as scheduled. May cancellations almost never involve pulling shows off the air.

    HL was doomed without the Chuck lead-in.

  • Gabe

    A shame, though it makes perfect sense.

    “Until advertisers decide that their methods are wrong”

    This is it exactly. Maybe it’s finally time for viewers to prove this to advertisers.

    HL was doomed without the Chuck lead-in.


  • Caringtype1(Save Harry!)

    NOOOOOOOO!!!!! I’m literally sobbing!!!!!!

  • Drew

    Now Mark Valley can come back to Human Target for a season 3!!!

  • DW

    i must say i did think it had a slight chance with the total viewers but it’s the ratings. which like the ratings themselves , are turning into the relic that advertisers do not want to cater to.

    I’m not surprised Harry’s Law was cancelled. When they moved it to a weekday night across from one of my other favorites, I had to make a choice.
