There's a crisis on NBC's Sunday night lineup. Both Crisis and Believe have been pulled from the Peacock's Sunday, May 18 schedule. Sunday, May 18 is the last Sunday in May sweeps.

In place of Crisis and Believe will be a rerun of NBC's The Women of SNL special at 9 p.m. The Women of SNL special reunited Saturday Night Live veterans including Tina Fey, Cheri Oteri, Molly Shannon, Nora Dunn, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Rachel Dratch and looked back on classic sketches starring the funny ladies.

This isn't good news for the struggling midseason dramas. Crisis debuted to 6.5 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in March, but a recent episode dipped to 4 million and a 1.0 rating. The conspiracy drama stars The X-Files veteran Gillian Anderson, Rachael Taylor and Dermot Mulroney.

Believe started out better debuting after The Voice with 10.6 million viewers and a 2.7 rating. But when it moved to its regular Sunday slot, the numbers dropped. A recent episode had 4.5 million viewers and a 1.0 rating. The drama about a young girl with extraordinary powers stars Kyle MacLachlan, Jack McLaughlin and Johnny Sequoyah.

Both Believe and Crisis are considered very much on the cancellation bubble along with many fan favorites including Law & Order: SVU, Community, The Mentalist and The Crazy Ones. See more shows on the bubble below.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
