'Do No Harm' canceled after two low-rated episodes
The 2012-2013 television season has claimed another victim. NBC has canceled the drama "Do No Harm" after just two episodes, according to The Associated Press.
The show was a medical drama with a modern day take on the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and starred Steven Pasquale of "Rescue Me." Pasquale played a respected neurosurgeon who turns into a dangerous alter ego each night. Other cast members include Phylicia Rashad, Alana De La Garza and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
"Do No Harm" started with a record low audience for its premiere and the ratings dropped even lower for its second episode on Thursday, February 7. NBC will fill the 10 p.m. timeslot with reruns of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" for two weeks.
Pasquale previously starred on the NBC comedy "Up All Night," which experienced a shake-up in the cast on Friday, February 8, when star Christina Applegate announced she was leaving the show.
"Do No Harm" is also another failed duel identity drama that has failed to capture an audience in recent years. "Lone Star," "Awake" and "My Own Worst Enemy" all featured duel or split identity lead characters and were canceled after only a few airings.
