'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"
