ABC is sending "Zero Hour" - what looks like an incredible show by the way - to the "slaughter slot". Why on earth would they put it on a Thursday at 8pm - a genre show (again)- knowing they just axed two in a row ("Charlie's Angels" in 2011, and now the sensational "Last Resort" in 2012)?
It would be far more intelligent to put it on Tuesdays in the soon vacant "Private Practice" slot, and "Body Of Proof" with "Greys Anatomy" on Thursday. That would make some sense... or move already established "Castle" there, and give "Zero Hour" Monday's @ 10pm.
Look, I love ABC's shows more often than not (save their reality TV rubbish, including those laughable new two they are launching which is both pathetic and sad they would do it).
The very idea they axed "666" without trying to move it (#1) and give it time to grow in an earlier time slot - to me - means whomever is scheduling for them should be fired - immediately. They clearly have no clue how to manipulate a schedule for a network with any effect.
Aaron Spelling must be rolling with laughter in his grave with what has gone on with ABC since he left in 1989.
Genre shows to well mid-week but late at night - or - on Fridays.
ABC = glossy, polished, fantastic ideas - but absolutely no idea how to market their grandiose yet excellent (more often than not) programming.
Heads should roll, and it's not Paul Lee's - it is the ones making these "little people" decisions that are hurting the network. Thank you.
