No love for ‘No Harm’ — brotherly or otherwise

    If you’re going to make it on TV, you have to do it in a hurry. “Do No Harm,” a new Jeckyll-and-Hyde-inspired medical drama taking place and partially filmed in Philadelphia, is off NBC’s Sunday-night lineup forever after only two weeks of terrible ratings.

    OK, they were some pretty bad ratings. Philly.com’s PhillyGossip blog reports that the premiere episode had the lowest ratings of any in-season premiere since 1987. And last night’s ratings were even worse. (But it was up against the Grammys. That’s hardly fair!)

    The show starred Steven Pasquale as a tormented surgeon and featured Phylicia Rashad.

    There’s a joke in here somewhere about patients and patience, but we only write jokes about shows that people are actually watching. If you want to see shots of Philly on the magic screen, you’ll have to wait until Brad Pitt’s summer zombie apocalypse thriller “World War Z” comes out in June — oh wait: it’s just Glasgow, Scotland, dressed up as Philly.
