Move comes just days after the Peacock put “Outlaw” on an indefinite production hiatus. The shift to Saturdays reps another sign that “Outlaw’s” production stop will become permanent.
In its place, NBC will now run a two-hour “Dateline NBC” from 9 p.m to 11 p.m. on Fridays for the time being. Peacock’s Friday night 8 p.m. show “School Pride” bows this Friday, Oct. 15.
NBC has four episodes remaining of “Outlaw.” Show will finish out its run on Saturday nights — except for Oct. 30, when NBC is repeating two DreamWorks Animation specials.
“Outlaw” averaged a 0.9 rating and 3 share among adults 18-49 in its final Friday night airing this past week.
Series stars Jimmy Smits as a Supreme Court justice who returns to the private sector as a crusading defense attorney. “Outlaw” comes from Universal Media Studios and Conan O’Brien’s Conaco banner; John Eisendrath created the show and exec produces with Richard Schwartz and David Kissinger.
