Leap of Faith is a half-hour single-camera comedy that aired on NBC in early 2002, right after Friends on NBC's Thursday comedy block at 8:30 PM EST, as part of Must See TV. Friends was in it's eighth season and was the number one show on television and ratings expectations were very high for the follow up series. Inside Schwartz filled the time slot, but was cancelled after 9 episodes despite averaging 15.1 millions viewers. Leap of Faith was the second show to fill the time slot, and aired for 6 episodes and averaged 16.5 million viewers. [1] The time slot was finally filled with repeats of Friends for the rest of the season and averaged 18.6 million viewers.
