The press had already figured out “Mob Doctor” is probably not getting an additional order for the so-called “back nine” episodes that would give the freshman drama a full season order — and a future on the network.

On Wednesday came word three of the remaining episodes on its initial order will be burned off on Saturday, Dec. 29; on New Year’s Eve (which falls on the show’s regular night — Monday — but is a night of very low TV viewing unless you’re Ryan Seacrest hosting “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve”); and on Saturday, Jan. 5.
