Inconceivable axed by NBC

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).

I am very upset with the decision to let this great show fade into the sunset! I was so impressed with it's originality. I had finally found the one night of the week and the one network where I could watch 2 great shows in a row! I guess that's over now...back to channel/network surfing! BRING IT BACK...PLEASE!!

I agree that the show should come back. Maybe it should return on another network, say ... Lifetime? It is a show geared toward women anyway...

I agree that this show should come back on the air! I really enjoyed it; there were some fresh new ideas with older familiar faces. What a great combination. The ex. only gave the show two chances to get people to watch. A new show, especially one that is a new idea, needs some time to attract people. Plus, the last two shows that were in this time slot got cancelled as well. Maybe its just a bad time, not a bad show!

It's sad that it got canceled since it was a great show. But on the other hand it's not like we didn't know this was coming.

Why are the major networks to trigger-happy when it comes to axes new shows? Not every show is going to be an instant hit! You need to give most shows time to attract an audience. Have they learned nothing from the cable networks?

At least it wasn't another Law & Order or CSI spin-off... They really need to give these shows 12-13 episodes to prove themselves.... How do they know that the 50% bump in ratings wasn't from people trying to watch Inconceivable? I know that I had my VCR programed for it....

Finally, network execs come tothere senses. There's enough drama in infertility without the made-up crapola this show spewed forth.
