NBC cancels ‘Ironside,’ ‘Welcome to the Family’

LOS ANGELES – NBC says it’s canceling two freshman shows, “Ironside” and “Welcome to the Family.” “Ironside,” starring Blair Underwood in an updated version of the Raymond Burr police drama, will air its final episode on Wednesday. Burr’s “Ironside” aired from 1967-75, but low ratings will keep the new series to a total of four episodes. “Welcome to the Family,” a Thursday night comedy about a young couple’s unplanned pregnancy, won’t have a chance to say goodbye.
