LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- The good news: NBC plans to broadcast "The Lady Varnishes" - the previously announced "online only" episode of "Andy Barker, P.I." (read the story).
The bad news: both it and "The Big No Sleep" - the last installment of its six-episode order - will run on Saturday, April 14 starting at 8:00/7:00c.
The news, confirmed via scheduling updates this morning, does not bode well for the show's chances for a second season.
In its place on Thursdays, NBC will bump up the 9:30/8:30c time slot premiere of "Scrubs" by one week.
"Barker" posted a series low 1.8 adults 18-49 rating (according to preliminary Nielsen data) for its special 10:00/9:00c airing last week, making the decision not much a surprise.
