NBC has brought production to a halt on Outlaw, the network's new legal drama starring Jimmy Smits. Three episodes have already aired at 10 p.m. Fridays but the series hasn't exactly burned down the house of Nielsen: Outlaw only averaged 4.7 million viewers on Oct. 1, down from its premiere week average of 4.98 million. The network still has five original episodes in the can that are scheduled to air so its plan is to monitor the show's performance in the coming weeks before deciding whether to resume production.
