NBC yanks ‘Battery Park’

Drama falters post-'Frasier'

Hand NBC some jumper cables: “Battery Park” is dead.

Peacock execs announced Friday it had yanked the cop ensemble sitcom, which couldn’t get arrested in the post- “Frasier” Thursday night slot.

NBC had ordered seven episodes of the skein, which came from DreamWorks TV and Gary David Goldberg, but only aired four segs.

“Battery Park” averaged a 6 Nielsen rating among adults 18-49 and a 8.2 rating/13 share in homes. That’s lower than its time slot predecessor, “Stark Raving Mad,” which averaged a 7.6 rating in the key adults demo.

But “Stark Raving Mad” and fellow Thursday night disappointment “Jesse” won’t be returning to the Peacock skeds anytime before the end of the season either — leading one to assume that those bubble shows aren’t likely to return.

A repeat “Will and Grace” episode will air in place of “Battery”/ “Stark” next week, followed by rerun “Frasier” segs through sweeps and an hour-long “Frasier” on May 18.

With “Daddio” completing its run, “Just Shoot Me” airs at 8:30 on April 27, followed by rerun “Friends” on May 4 and 11, and an hour-long “Friends” finale on May 18.
