NBC yanked freshman series Inconceivable from its 10:00 p.m. slot on Friday, October 7, with a promise to return the show to the air the following week. According to scheduling updates released by the network this morning, however, Inconceivable won't be back anytime soon.
The repeat of Law & Order: Criminal Intent that took Inconceivable's place last week saw a 50 percent increase over the newcomer's latest ratings, according to Nielsen reports. NBC is banking on the reliable courtroom drama to keep drawing the masses and has scheduled further Friday night repeats for the rest of the month.
After so long of a hiatus, it's unlikely that Inconceivable--which only aired twice--will return to the fall prime time schedule at all.
The unlucky drama follows the doctors and staff of the fictional Family Options Fertility Clinic as they try to help their clients conceive while navigating their own personal and professional lives. The cast includes Ming-Na (ER), Jonathan Cake (Fallen), and Angie Harmon (Law & Order).
