The three freshman series all premiered this spring and aired without strong ratings or critical success. Abby's, The Enemy Within, The Village and the recently canceled A.P. Bio were left up in the air when NBC announced its fall schedule during upfronts week. “The next season’s schedule is fluid, we want to give those shows a chance to fulfill their run and we’ll take another look at them then,” NBC Co-Chairman George Cheeks said on NBC’s May 12 upfronts call. “Remember we program 52 weeks a year so there are a lot of slots.” The Michael Schur-produced Abby's was a Cheers-like multicamera sitcom that had the distinction of filming outdoors. It averaged 1.7 million viewers and has yet to complete airing its first season. The Village averaged 4.1 million viewers, while the Jennifer Carpenter psychological thriller The Enemy Within averaged 4.4 million viewers. All three shows were from Universal TV.
