Not a surprise here. After pulling the final three episodes of the comedy Powerless from its Thursday night lineup, NBC has officially canceled the series. Powerless debuted to soft ratings (1.1, 3.1 million in Live+Same Day) and never recovered.
NBC is pulling the plug on Powerless. The superhero-adjacent comedy has been yanked from the Peacock Network’s Thursday night schedule, which means it’s as good as canceled. The switch starts this week, with Superstore shifting into its former 8:30 timeslot. (Superstore repeats will run at 8 p.m. for the next two weeks.)
