And finally, we now have the third new series canceled. After just four episodes, NBC has canceled low-rated Friday drama Outlaw. Three of those four episodes aired on Friday, while the series premiere got a sampling the week before the season on Wednesday following the America's Got Talent finale. The latest episode and only did a 0.9 18-49 rating, as CBS ad ABC both doubled that at a 1.8 rating at 10pm. NBC will now burn-off the remaining four episodes that were shot on Saturdays at 8pm starting this Saturday (Oct. 16). The finale is set to air on Saturday, Nov. 13 (it is preempted on Oct. 30 for Halloween specials). On Fridays now, NBC will expand Dateline to two-hours from 9pm-11pm, rather than the planned one-hour at 9pm. NBC launches new reality series School Pride this Friday (Oct. 15) at 8pm, as previously announced. Outlaw joins Lone Star and My Generation in canceled series, though the latter two still has unaired episodes to air. Next on the chopping block could be Running Wilde, Good Guys, The Apprentice, The Whole Truth, Undercovers, or Chase. Jury is still out on Detroit 1-8-7 and The Event, while many other series still continue to drop (Hawaii Five-0, Outsourced, $#*! My Dad Says).
