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