Looks like Welcome to the Family’s welcome to the NBC family was temporary. Very temporary.
NBC has canceled the freshman comedy, starring Glee’s Mike O’Malley as a suburban dad trying to cope with his college-age daughter’s unplanned pregnancy, just three weeks into its run and pulled the series from its schedule.
Here’s what to watch for in Family‘s Thursday night 8pm time slot:
- Oct. 24: encore episode of The Voice

On January 2, Community returns with back-to-back episodes.
NBC also canceled its modern take on the classic Raymond Burr cop series Ironside, starring Blair Underwood as the wheelchair-bound detective, airing one last episode this Wednesday at 10pm ET/PT before filling the time slot with the following:
- Oct. 30: Season premiere encore of Law & Order: SVU
