The future is not looking bright for freshman drama Notorious. Word is out that ABC has trimmed the show's episode count down to 10 from its originally-planned 13. The move follows a slow start for the new Thursday night series, which has underperformed in the 9:00pm hour between Grey's Anatomy and How to Get Away With Murder.

While Notorious is not yet at cancelled status, new series that have their episode counts reduced do not have a good track record of returning for additional seasons. For now, the show's remaining five episodes will air as planned, but the likelihood of seeing more appears remote at this point.
