NBC cancels 'Do No Harm' after only two episodes

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Do No Harm has only aired two episodes and NBC network has already opted to shut the show down.

The series followed Dr. Jason Cole, a neurosurgeon battling with an alternate personality. Previews for the series show a young doctor attempting to save lives every day, only to be punished by his alter-mischievous-ego which takes over later in the evening.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Do No Harm brought in the lowest ratings of a scripted series in modern history. The show first aired on Thursday, boasting a wretched 0.9 rating for adults 18-49, followed by a 22 percent decline for the Feb. 8 episode.

Its time slot will be replaced by reruns of Law and Order: SVU for the following two weeks.

Do No Harm, created by David Schulner, starred the likes of Steven Pasquale, Jennifer Butler and Michelle Hillesland.

The cancellation of the freshman series follows more disappointing news after Christina Applegate announced she would step away from her leading role in Up All Night following "major changes" to the sitcom.
