And in this case, bad news for all those Jimmy Smitts fans out there, since NBC cancels Outlaw. Good thing is it won´t happen right away.
The show will still air the four remaining episodes already filmed. But they would move Outlaw from Fridays to Saturdays 8 PM.
Dateline will expand from one hour to a two hour show to cover up for the loss of Outlaw, cancelled by NBC.
NBC cancellation of Outlaw should not come as a shocker, since the show was getting low numbers even for Friday Night shows. Friday’s “Outlaw” drew 4.1 million viewers and slipped to a 0.9 adult demo rating in the last nationals ratings updates.
