OK so I'm still trying to fully parse out and understand the new fall season announced this week. It doesn't help that I'm still on the road and don't have a consistent schedule. PS, tomorrow I have 10.5 hours of driving, ugh! But there is one pattern I have noticed: Friday at 9:00. Every network has moved one of the shows I watch to Friday at 9:00. Well, FOX already had Dollhouse
at that time slot and that is currently the only show I watch then. But in addition to Dollhouse (which I'm very happy was renewed) there is:
- Southland on NBC. Moved from Thursday at 10 for the nightly Jay.
- Medium on CBS. Transfer from NBC. This show makes more sense on CBS anyway but pairing it with The Boob Whisperer seems a bit much.
- Ugly Betty on ABC. Are they trying to kill this show? It had such a great Thursday night time slot at 8:00 which is perfect for comedies. They are replacing it with Flashforward. Although that does look really cool, a time twisting mystery drama does not belong at 8:00 on Thursday.
Since I had to drop Betty this year thanks to the DISH vs. KOMO battle, I'll probably drop that show altogether now. It's season finale is tomorrow. I won't be watching. Southland is one of my new favorite shows.
