What happened to Kidnapped on NBC?
Kidnapped started out on NBC in the third hour of primetime on Wednesday nights. It was cancelled after three airings in that time period but NBC tried to throw fans of the show a bone. They said they would complete the shows initial 13-episode order and give fans of the show an ending to the kidnapping mystery. So they moved the show to the second hour of primetime on Saturday nights. After two weeks of weak ratings there and before the two-week sweeps period, ratings during sweeps are what networks use to set advertising rates, started in November they decided to pull it from the airwaves completely. They did however complete the 13 episodes and will put a new one out each Friday online at the NBC Kidnapped website. This will be your only chance to see what happened unless they decide to release it on DVD.
