This comes as no surprise to anyone. Production on the low rated Thursday night drama Prime Suspect has been shut down, effective immediately.
Questions about this shows survival has been swirling for week, as its ratings have been dismal since its highly touted premiere in September.
Prime Suspect got its fate, unofficially, yesterday when NBC announced their mid-season plans, and Prime Suspect. – and fellow Thursday night comedy Community – was nowhere to be found on Spring 2012 schedule.
New drama The Firm will replace Prime Suspect in the Thursday 10pm timeslot as of January 12th.
Prime Suspect will continue its run of 13 episodes on Thursdays until further notice.
