-- LOS ANGELES, Calif. (December 12, 2007) – It appears the next jump for NBC’s “Journeyman” is into retirement.
NBC has pulled the plug on its sci-fi drama, the network announced on Tuesday.
NBC had until Tuesday to give a full-season pickup to the time-travelling drama, starring Kevin McKidd, but when that deadline came and went without a commitment, it all but sealed the show’s fate.
There are two remaining episodes, which will still air as scheduled, an NBC rep told Access Hollywood. The episodes will air on December 17 and 19 at 10PM.
While the end has come for “Journeyman,” NBC recently gave full-season pickups to two other freshman shows, “Chuck” and “Life.”
That leaves its fourth first-year series, “Bionic Woman,” as the only new show still in limbo.
However, NBC wasn’t the only network busy axing shows from the schedule this week. On Tuesday, ABC announced they had pulled the last three episodes of “Big Shots” from its schedule.
The freshman dramedy, starring Michael Vartan, Dylan McDermott, Christopher Titus and Joshua Malina, was benched from the schedule. However, due to the writer’s strike and the lack of original scripted shows the networks are facing, ABC plans to air the three remaining episodes (two original and one a repeat) in January.
