NBC has switched off the EKG on Melissa George’s new US drama Heartbeat after just 8 episodes have aired in the US.
The series, with George playing a renowned heart-transplant surgeon, also featured Don Hany.
The show was originally set for a Fall premiere but was pushed back to midseason because of Melissa George’s pregnancy. But with no lead-in to rely on, it averaged just a 1.1 rating amongst the all-important 18-49 demo. Reviews also labelled it a Grey’s Anatomy rip-off.
Heartbeat premiered last month in Australian on Universal.
