LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The journey is coming to an end for NBC's freshman series "Journeyman."<br><br>
NBC had until Tuesday to give a full-season pickup to the time-travel drama starring Kevin McKidd. The network let that option lapse, practically canceling the series, which posted its lowest adults 18-49 rating (1.7 rating/8 share) on Monday without a "Heroes" lead-in. The network already tried out fellow rookie "Life" in "Journeyman"'s Monday 10 p.m. slot last week.<br><br>
Despite the Hollywood writers strike, "Journeyman" was able to complete its 13-episode order.<br><br>
The remaining two original segments will air as scheduled, an NBC spokeswoman said.<br><br>
NBC recently handed out full-season pickups to two of its four rookie scripted series, "Life" and "Chuck."<br><br>
Since the production of most scripted series has been suspended because of the strike, such orders are considered a vote of confidence to the shows and a potential renewal for next season if the additional episodes can't be produced by the end of this season.
