television Awake's Jason Isaacs To Star In CBS Drama Surgeon General Kelly West 8y Among the more promising high-concept dramas to air last year was Kyle Killen's Awake. Unfortunately, the series failed to earn strong ratings and NBC cancelled it, leaving star Jason Isaacs available to pursue other TV projects. NBC's loss may be CBS' gain as Isaacs has signed on to star in a drama pilot for the network.
television Awake Series Finale Preview: Turtles All The Way Down Kelly West 9y As you may have heard already, NBC has pulled the plug on their freshman drama series Awake. Or rather, the proverbial plug will more officially be pulled after tomorrow night's finale airs. With no pick-up for next season, tomorrow night's episode will close the book on the story, for better or worse, which is disappointing, considering it was one of the network's more promising new series this season.
television NBC Cancels Bent, Awake And Two More Kelly West 9y Today we learned that Parks and Recreations and Up All Night were renewed, and last night there was good news for Community. But it's not all good news for NBC. The ax fell for a number of the network's struggling freshman series, some more deserving of a second chance than others. Unfortunately, these ones won't be getting them.
television Idol Owns Thursday Night In The Ratings, Awake Falters Further Jessica Grabert 9y Awake only earned a .7 rating among viewers in the 18-49 demographic.

television NBC Moves Community Finale Up A Week, Bumps Awake Finale Out Of Sweeps Leslie Kasperowicz 9y Fans of Community had better cancel any plans for the night of May 17th. NBC has moved up the season finale of the series to that date, which means 90 minutes of Community all airing in one evening. The move puts the finale within May sweeps, which is interesting for a series that has been facing cancellation rumors.
television Save This Show: Why Awake Deserves More Than A Rookie Run Jessica Grabert 9y Awake is an ambitious enterprise; it is a cop drama and a psychological character study, a family drama and a bit of a mystery. Because it is so many things in one package, it can be hard to categorize and difficult to jump in mid-story. In recent weeks, Awake has been faltering in the stacked nighttime slot on Thursday nights, but I think this has more to do with complication than quality. As a freshman drama, Awake needs the chance to fully flesh out and deserves a second round to really prove it can punch.
