NBC Schedule Scoop: The Firm Out, Awake In on Thursdays

NBC is making a big, although not entirely unexpected, change to its Thursday lineup.

Low-rated rookie drama The Firm is being banished to Saturdays effective immediately, and filling the 10 pm void beginning March 1 will be the anticipated new thriller Awake.

Grimm reruns will air in the interim.

The Firm this week courted barely 3 million total viewers while scoring an anemic 0.8 demo rating, plunging another 20 percent on both counts.

Created by Lone Star‘s Kyle Killen, Awake is an Inception-style thriller about an injured cop (Brotherhood‘s Jason Isaacs) who wakes from an accident to find himself toggling back and forth between two separate realities — one in which his wife (Terriers‘ Laura Allen) perished in a car crash, the other in which he lost his son.
