NBC Pulls ‘Powerless’ From Its Thursday Night Lineup
Things aren’t looking very good for NBC’s freshman comedy Powerless. According to Deadline, the network has pulled the show, which has struggled in the ratings since its February premiere, from its Thursday night lineup this week and next and will replace it with episodes of Superstore in the 8:30pm time slot. While NBC has not announced that the show has been canceled, this tweet from writer/executive producer Patrick Schumacker does not paint an optimistic picture for the show’s future or the chances that NBC will air the final two episodes of season 1:
#Powerless will not air this week or next. This, I know for sure. I can guess some other things but they're not good. Thanks for watching.
