NBC axes 'Bent,' 'Awake,' 'Chelsea,' 'Best Friends Forever'

'Are You There, Chelsea?" won't be anymore

Four of NBC's freshman shows won't be returning to prime time.

The casualties include three comedies — "Bent," "Are You There, Chelsea?" and "Best Friends Forever." All three shows premiered in midseason and drew mediocre ratings.

The network has also canceled "Awake," which starred Jason Isaacs as a detective caught between two realities.

[Update: 2:44 p.m.: NBC just announced it has also canned "Harry's Law," which is actually one of its most-watched shows.]


NBC renews 'Parks and Recreation," Up All Night," "Whitney"

NBC picks up Ryan Murphy's 'New Normal' and J.J. Abrams' "Revolution"

NBC adds two new comedies, "1600 Penn" and "Animal Practice"
