    With us liking both the Firm and Harry’s Law and then cancelling, is it possible that USA or another station could pick them up? Sure going to keep an eye out for the future.

    Since the greatest part of our growing population is over 65, get rid of the so-many reality shows for youngsters, and keep the good stuff that we seniors enjoy (and, we’ve got $ to spend on the advertisors). Harry’s law was great…well, maybe not GREAT, but entertaining.

  • Linda W.

    Harry’s Law started to go down hill at the point when Season 2 started. Somebody somewhere decided for whatever insane reason that the season I Harry’s Law didn’t look enough like just about every single law show since time began. So, in spite of the fact that most of its season I viewers LIKED it BECAUSE it was so original and different, the powers that be just completely revamped it. They make it into a pale imitation of a bunch of tired old law shows from the past. They made it unoriginal and boring. It’s a shame, but I believe that it what killed it. Season I fans lost interest, that’s all. I KNOW I did!

  • Vicky

    Aww… Two of my favorite shows…of course I am in the “old” category. Even the people who work for NBC make fun of you! (watch Jay Leno)

  • Steve

    Screw You NBC.

    Harry’s Law will do very well this upcoming Saturday and Sunday night!

  • Carol smith

    It is sad when a show with good script and acting gets bumped– and there’s no better than Bates!
    I was confused when it appeared last night, Saturday and missed 15 minutes of finale. I’m viewing anyway and hope to puck up in first re- runs. Those who make choices about which shows to Ross is much Luke our private equity system in US; decisions are made for investors if the shows, not furthering art.
