Kathy Bates is still not happy about 'Harry's Law' being canceled

Don't expect Kathy Bates to be popping up on NBC anytime in the near future.The Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stars on FX's "American Horror Story: Coven" this fall. At the show's TCA press tour session Friday (Aug. 2), she was asked if it took a show like "AHS" to bring her back to TV after the way her last series ended.That was "Harry's Law," which was canceled last year after two seasons. It had pretty strong total-audience numbers (8.8 million viewers) but was among NBC's lowest-ranking shows in the 18-49 demographic, which is the network's priority.Bates did not shy away from criticizing that way of thinking. "I think they treated us like s***," she says. "They disrespected us and our 7 to 11 million viewers, and they're getting what they deserve.""AHS: Coven" is scheduled to premiere in October on FX.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/08/kathy-bates-is-still-not-happy-about-harrys-law-being-canceled.html

David E. Kelley on 'Harry's Law' cancellation: 'It's still hard to make sense of that'

David E. Kelley is as sorry as anyone that "Harry's Law" is no more.The NBC legal drama that earned title star Kathy Bates an Emmy nomination had its loyalists, many of whom haven't given up on the show returning in some form. Creator and executive producer Kelley has a new project -- his TNT medical series "Monday Mornings" is a collaboration with CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta that premieres Monday, Feb. 4 -- but he understands and appreciates the "Harry's Law" mourning."There a lot of things I think we could have done better with that show," Kelley tells Zap2it, "but it's still hard to fathom that we were their top-rated scripted show ... or close to it, depending on whose data you look at. It was either us or 'Smash.' That it wasn't good enough because our viewers were too old, it's still hard to make sense of that.RELATED: 2011-2012 Canceled TV Shows"My feelings are compounded... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/12/david-e-kelley-on-harrys-law-cancellation-its-still-hard-to-make-sense-of-that.html
