The legal series starring Jimmy Smits struggled right out of the gate in its Friday night slot at 10 PM ET. The production of the show, which has shot eight episodes, was put on hiatus last week, with the most recent episode dropping even further in the ratings on Friday, which lead to its cancelation.
The site reports that a two-hour version of Dateline NBC will fill in for the hour-long series. Dateline NBC had previously aired in a two-hour block from 8 PM ET to 10 PM ET, with Outlaw ending the night at 10 PM ET. The network will debut the new series School Pride this Friday, October 15, at 8 PM ET, with the two-hour block of Dateline NBC airing from 9 PM ET to 11 PM ET on Friday nights from now on.
The last four episodes of Outlaw that have already been produced will air on Saturday nights at 8 PM ET, except for Saturday, October 30.
