05/11/2012 05:56 pm ET

NBC has canceled "Harry's Law." Series star Kathy Bates tweeted the news to her followers.

The legal drama from "Ally McBeal" creator David E. Kelley was one of NBC's highest rated shows in the Nielsen ratings, except in the coveted 18-49 demographic. The second season of "Harry's Law" debuted to 7.5 million viewers and has fluctuated between 7 and at one point 9 million viewers in the ratings since. The May 4 episode of the series had 7.7 million viewers but a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

The series was considered on the bubble because of its low 18-49 demo rating, but its overall numbers worked in its favor.

NBC has previously canceled "The Firm," "Prime Suspect, "Free Agents," "The Playboy Club," "Awake" "Bent," "Are You There Chelsea?" and "Best Friends Forever."
