Powerless: Pulled From the NBC Schedule with Little Fanfare

25 April 2017 10:09 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The concept behind Powerless is a good one.

With so many superhero shows on the air, and with said superheroes and villains doing so much damage to the cities where they live day in and day out, this fun comedy examines the people who live there in the wake of all that action.

Unfortunately, with episodes pulled at the last minute, new runs replaced with reruns, and an office theme versus a full on life theme, Powerless had a tough time finding its footing.

Today, Powerless Executive Producer Patrick Schumacker took to Twitter to share some bad news.

#Powerless will not air this week or next. This, I know for sure. I can guess some other things but they're not good. Thanks for watching.

Patrick Schumacker (@PMSchumacker) April 25, 2017

With only two episodes left, and a plethora of reruns currently airing, that seems like a raw deal to fans of the show, »

Powerless (Essentially) Cancelled at NBC After Remaining Episodes Pulled

25 April 2017 9:38 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

NBC is pulling the plug on Powerless.

The superhero-adjacent comedy has been yanked from the Peacock Network’s Thursday night schedule, which means it’s as good as cancelled. The switch starts this week, with Superstore shifting into its former 8:30/7:30c timeslot. (Superstore repeats will run at 8 pm for the next two weeks.)

Powerless Abruptly Pulled From NBC’s Weekly Slate

25 April 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

NBC has unceremoniously pulled Powerless from its weekly slate, fuelling rumors that the DC spinoff series is on the verge of cancellation.

First spotted by ComicBook, the network has quietly reshuffled its slate of programming so that this week will herald a new episode of Superstore – the workplace comedy starring America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Mark McKinney and Lauren Ash – in the same slot once occupied by Powerless. We should stress that this switcheroo doesn’t necessarily mean that NBC is ready to pull the plug on Ben Queen’s superhero sitcom, but it doesn’t exactly look good, does it? Couple this with the fact that Powerless wasn’t renewed alongside its fellow NBC series – namely The Blacklist and Shades of Blue – and it seems as though the show’s days on the air are numbered.

Powerless Season 1 Episode 3 Review – ‘Sinking Day’

17 February 2017 2:39 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the third episode of Powerless

Sometimes characters boost a plot. Sometimes they ruin one, and ‘Sinking Day’ could be the mark of a sinking show. Two promising storylines get used to bring out the worst in Powerless‘ characters and this is before we’ve started liking them.

The charts are in and Wayne Security’s sales are up. Emily would point out that January is the month she joined the team but Van sees the numbers as an opening to bring up his Gotham promotion with Dad (Corbin Bernsen). Too slow to seal the deal, the team lose an important client because Van forgot to pass on an e-mail that changed the parameters of the project. Dad makes a rare trip to see his son, alright, but it’s not to praise him with job advancement. It’s to punish him with revocation of his respect.
