NBC’s calling off ‘Heist’

Peacock plucking new drama

“Heist” is about to get yanked.

NBC plans to air one more episode of the caper series, but hasn’t committed to keeping the show on the schedule beyond this week.

Peacock had already shifted the new drama’s timeslot after a disappointing launch (Daily Variety, April 3).

Having originally aired on Wednesdays at 10 p.m., the show’s weak start convinced NBC execs to move it down to 9 p.m.

“Heist” has aired just three times so far, but its averages have dropped consistently week-to-week.

Show debuted with a 3.0 rating/0 share in the adult 18-49 demo, which sunk to a 1.8/4 by week three.

“Heist” stars Dougray Scott as a professional thief who assembles a criminal dream team to rob several Beverly Hills jewelry stores during Oscar week. Things get complicated when he and the head of the LAPD robbery/homicide division (Michele Hicks) fall in love.

Doug Liman and Robb and Mark Cullen are behind the midseason show, which comes from NBC Universal TV and Sony Pictures TV.
