The Slap: Season One Ratings

6 March 2015 12:29 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

NBC is billing The Slap as a mini-series so it doesn't seem like there's any danger of the series being cancelled. However, if the ratings are bad enough, they could certainly pull it before all eight episodes have aired. Conversely, if the ratings are really good, they could figure out a way to bring the characters back for a second season. What will happen? Stay tuned.

How Did NBC's Slap Strike You?

12 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you’ve seen any of NBC’s recent promos for its new miniseries The Slap, you may have been tricked into thinking that Zachary Quinto’s Harry is the lone bad guy in a group of do-gooders.

But the show’s premiere episode, which debuted Thursday, paints a much different picture.

Early into the hour, it becomes clear that every character in the ensemble is massively flawed, particularly Hector (The Killing‘s Peter Sarsgaard), from whose perspective the episode is told.
