Unfortunately, I think everyone who kept an eye on the ratings saw this coming eventually.
While NBC has yet to make an official announcement, Powerless has been pulled from their Thursday night time slot and replaced with reruns of Superstore.
The show started off with poor ratings and never really found itself. Initially meant to be about an insurance company that handles damage claims from superhero encounters (similar to Marvel’s Damage Control), the pilot took on extensive late re-shoots to become about the R & D department of Wayne Tech.
While I was not a huge fan of the Powerless, my wife and I did watch it and did find the series entertaining. While some of the humor did seem rather forced initially, I thought the chemistry of the main three (Vanessa Hudgens, Alan Tudyk and Danny Pudi) did improve week over week and Christina Kirk’s deadpan sarcasm was always delivered perfectly.
An official statement from NBC should be coming soon.
