Cancellation Buzz: NBC Cancels 'Mercy' and 'Trauma'

Can you guys keep up with all of these cancellations today?! From THR: Some wonder how low rated an NBC show needs to be to get canceled. This is it. NBC has put the medical drama "Mercy" out of its misery. The long-struggling Wednesday night freshman drama most recently pulled a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 in the 9 p.m. hour. The network also officially pulled the plug on its other freshman medical drama this season, "Trauma." NBC executives indicated the show was cancelled once already this season, then ordered a few additional episodes once it became clear "The Jay Leno Show" wasn't going to last. "Trauma" was averaging around a 1.7 rating in its final days. "Mercy" and "Trauma" joins "Law & Order" on the NBC axe-list, which after a protracted struggle officially got cut this morning.

Monday Ratings: 'Chuck' hits all-time low as DST begins

NBC's Chuck posted its all-time lowest rating Monday night. With the start of Daylight Savings Time, many 8 p.m. shows tend to dip. Overall broadcast usage dropped 9% during the 8 p.m. hour. "Chuck" (5.8 million viewers, 1.9 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) took a rough knock, down 17%. Tweets co-creator Josh Schwartz: "'Chuck' fans, it's time to get organized." ABC didn't get too much traction exposing its own reality hit on "20/20" during this low octane night in the ratings. The two-hour special "20/20: Inside the Bachelor: The Stories Behind the Rose" (8 million, 2.3) revealed some tidbits about the long-running series (average number of contestants each bachelor has sex with: three), though performed somewhat modestly. Fox came out on top with House (11.2 million, 4.0) and 24 (9 million, 2.7), both down a tad from last week. CBS was second with Rules of Engagement (7.8 million, 2.7) standing on its own while the rest of CBS' lineup aired repeats. Still, those "Two and a Half Men" and "Big Bang Theory" encores generated a 3.8 rating each and won 9 p.m. Despite airing all originals, NBC placed fourth. Trauma (5.2 million, 1.5) was up a tenth. "Law & Order" (6.9 million, 1.8) tied a "Castle" repeat to place second at 10 p.m. On The CW, Life UneXpected (2.1 million, 1.0) climbed despite the onset of DST. "Unexpected" unexpectedly posted its best rating among women 18-34 (1.8) since its second episode, climbing 29% from last week's debut 8 p.m. airing. Gossip Girl (1.7 million, 1.0) was on par in the adult demo though climbed slightly among young women. Source
