Save Harry's Law Protest Growing
Harry's Law, starring Oscar winning actress Kathy Bates, was not renewed for next season by NBC. The network cited that the show, though very popular and winning its time slot, didn't appeal to the right demographics. The network complained that viewers were over 55 and not the more marketable younger crowd.
But doesn't the network realize that we in the senior market have children and grandchildren?
Doesn't the network realize we are the ones often supplying the money for those purchases that advertisers seek?
Doesn't the network understand we buy for our children and grandchildren?
Here's what John Kliese had to say on cincinnati.com had to say:
Are you upset about NBC canceling “Harry’s Law” because the audience (mostly 55+ and up) was “too old,” in the words of NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt?
More than 40,000 people have “liked” the Save Harry’s Law Facebook page. Here’s the link.
But in all honesty, I’m not sure we’ll have any impact. Eexecutive producers Bill D’Elia and David E. Kelley already have moved on to a new TNT medical drama, “Monday Morning.”
From the Cornfield, I for one do not want one of the best shows on television to be gone.
If NBC doesn't see the value, perhaps one of its sister networks: USA or TNT will take up the show.
