NBC Cancels ‘Bad Judge’ and ‘A to Z’ Following Poor Ratings


With NBC’s “Bad Judge” and “A to Z” pulling less a than a 1.0 rating in the key Adults 18-49 sales demographic the network has decided to end both Thursday comedies after airing the original full 13-episode order for each.

“Judge,” the higher-rated of the two, starred “Private Practice’s” Kate Walsh as a “bad judge” who really isn’t. The series pulled a 0.9 in the demo in its most recent airing, while “A to Z,” co-starring Cristin Milioti (aka the mother from CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother”), pulled in a 0.7 rating, which is the lowest rating a primetime show reportedly can hit before it gets the ax. Former “Passions” star Ryan McPartlin recently completed an arc on “Judge.”

“The Blacklist” is set to take over the 9:00 PM hour on NBC Thursdays after the Superbowl.
