    "Tyranny" for sure. I don't know, I normally could care less about stuff like this BUT this time I took it personally. I fall outside of the coveted demographics, I loved Harry's Law and the head actress in charge just happens to be one of the BEST in the business. This got my attention!! Not good for NBC.

    I don't know why some big law firm doesn't take on these network for age discremination.Isn't there a law against this.I watch at least 10 hours aday more then my sons in there 30's.They do watch there watching what there children want.there lucky to get to watch an hour a day of what they want.We are not stuck in the 60's.I watch all kinds of different programming.I'm not an old pruned.I like excitment,sex and scandle like anyone elseNeilsen alse refuses to chane with population.Its all crap.Can someone put a discremination suite against these network for age discremination?We have to pay cable and satelite bills like anyone else.If I don't count them pay my damn satelite bill.

    Well said! Us Baby Boomers want smart TV and we are the ones with the most disposable income. Kathy Bates rocks her role. Exceptional cast. Exceptional writing. Being Harry's Law back!

    I completely agree. Just like Kathy Bates said in Fried Green Tomatoes when she rammed that VW "I'm older and have more insurance." evidently, there is no respect given to the over 50 group and we are the ones with the money, and the time to watch TV. My spending days are far from over. I'm still young enough to be able to change the channel since this network does not appreciate me and what I, along with millions of other over 50s, have to offer!

    I am fed up with the advertiser's deciding what people want to watch. Neilson controls much with their calendars that most people just fill in without even watching the shows. There has to be a better way of determining what we are watching. and when. This was one of my favorite shows and the list of actors was great. Please bring back out show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
