NBC Sets 'Awake' Debut to Replace 'The Firm' on Thursdays


NBC Sets 'Awake' Debut to Replace 'The Firm' on Thursdays


The new fantasy drama starring Jason Isaacs is going to launch on March 1, bumping the John Grisham-inspired legal drama to Saturdays.

After struggling in ratings for weeks since it was debuted in early January, "The Firm" has lost its coveted slot on NBC. The network has announced that new series "Awake" will take over the Thursday, 10/9c slot from the low-rated legal drama, scheduling the premiere of the Jason Isaacs-starrer on March 1.

"The Firm" will continue airing new episodes on Saturdays at 9 P.M. beginning February 11. In the meantime, repeats of fantasy crime drama "Grimm" will fill the "Firm" Thursday timeslot until "Awake" premieres.

"Awake" follows Isaacs' detective character, Michael Britten, who finds himself living two lives after a tragic accident involving his wife and teenage son. He solves crimes in both worlds with different partners and starts noticing strange links between the two realities.

"The Firm", meanwhile, is based on the 1991 John Grisham novel of the same name. Starring Josh Lucas as Mitch McDeere, the show's latest episode drew only 3 million viewers and a 0.8 rating in 18-49 demo.
