The primetime season cancellations are in and the news is grim for at least two NBC cult favorites. The network is pulling the plug on The Event — the disaster-themed drama that starred L.A. Law actor Blair Underwood — and the ratings-challenged Law & Order: L.A. The Dick Wolf-produced, Terrence Howard-led latter only recently returned to the network after being temporarily pulled from the schedule and recast.
Meanwhile, elsewhere on the small screen,
ABC has cancelled Brothers & Sisters, V, No Ordinary Family, Detroit 1-8-7, and Off the Map.
