NBC renders verdict on ‘Outlaw’

Production suspended on Jimmy Smits starrer

Guilty of poor ratings, “Outlaw” has been tossed to the primetime equivalent of solitary confinement — Saturdays at 8 p.m.

Move more or less means NBC has canceled “Outlaw,” although the Peacock will burn off the show’s remaining four episodes.

“Outlaw” averaged a 0.9 rating and 3 share among adults 18-49 in its final Friday night airing this past week.

Peacock put “Outlaw” on an indefinite production hiatus; the shift to Saturdays means that “Outlaw’s” break will become permanent.

In its place, NBC will 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 Friday, Oct. 15.

“Outlaw” will finish its run on Saturday nights except for Oct. 30, when NBC is repeating two DreamWorks Animation “Shrek” specials.

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 produced with Richard Schwartz and David Kissinger.
