Just two days after Quarterlife's creator said that moving the Internet program to TV was a bad idea, NBC has agreed with him, yanking it from its lineup after only one episode.The twentysomethings-who-blog drama debuted on Tuesday night at 10, scoring the network's lowest ratings for that time period in 17 years. The show was co-created by TV vet Marshall Herskovitz as 28 eight-minute mini-sodes for MySpace TV, which were then repackaged to create six one-hour episodes.NBC's Ben Silverman said that moving the show to TV was "so worth a try," but that he had hoped for higher ratings. An NBC rep said that it may move the series to Bravo later in the year. — Mickey O'ConnorRelated:• Quarterlife Creator Calls Move to Network a Mistake
After seeing the abysmal ratings for NBC's Web-to-prime-time experiment with Quarterlife, it's obvious viewers thought the show's network turn was a mistake. Those viewers will get no argument from the show's co-creator Marshall Herskovitz.According to the Hollywood Reporter, in a speech at the Harvard Business School's Entertainment & Media conference, Herskovitz told a group that the drama about a blogger and her group of twentysomething friends "never should have been a network show. It's too specific." The show's premiere was the network's worst performance in the 10 pm time slot in at least 17 years, averaging 3.1 million viewers overall. No official cancellation has been announced, but sources believe it's likely the show's second episode — set for this Sunday — will never make it to NBC's air. Herskovitz suggested that the show will probably end up on cable.— Adam Bryant

"Scott's involvement on Quarterlife was always supposed to be short-term because of his commitment to Greek," he says. "Needless to say, though, he's been a very, very busy man."
Here’s a fun fact. Did you know NBC’s newest drama was developed for the web? It does make sense, after all, since the series follows one of the main characters as she video blogs and spills secrets about her buds on the net (those crazy kids and their internet!). We have our fingers crossed that Quarterlife and its twentysomething pals will prove to be My So-Called Life for the new millennium. Watch it now! | More online videos
