NBC’s had a rough go of it on Monday nights this season, and Trauma is the first casualty. Trauma, which started with low ratings to begin with, fell off slightly from those low starting levels as the season went on. As a result, NBC has finally decided to cancel it.
The plug will be pulled on the show after it is finished filming its current 13 episode commitment. Without much else in the pipeline, NBC will allow the remaining episodes to air.
In related news, Chuck, which is scheduled to take the place of Trauma in midseason, has been given an additional 6 episodes.
