2006 Fall TV...

Recommended Posts

I still think moving the show to Sunday after NFL season is over would help the show out more. Tuesday is a loaded night as it is and it'll be so in the second half against AI. I would rather NBC give one of their best shows a better shot by sticking it on Sunday where it has a better chance of catching a larger fanbase.


I think a problem the show has with catching on is that, at this point everyone who would be interested has read the book and/or seen the movie. While they have changed the name of the town, it's still about HS football in Texas. The ad's for the show haven't shown that its something different from those two things.


I think they should have relocated the show from Texas to California or Ohio, where HS football is just huge there as it is in Texas. I think people might take to a different setting to a old premise differently.

CBS, NBC call for backup By Nellie Andreeva and Andrew Wallenstein

Thu Oct 12, 2:25 AM ET




LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - CBS and NBC are bringing in the midseason reinforcements for Tuesday and Wednesday nights with newcomer "3 Lbs." and returning drama "Medium," respectively.




NBC also is throwing its cards down in the wee hours with plans for an hourlong poker series set to air Monday-Saturday at 2:05 a.m.


CBS has slated "3 Lbs." to premiere November 14 in the Tuesday 10 p.m. slot previously occupied by "Smith," which was canceled last week after three airings. "3 Lbs." revolves around the relationship between a rising star brain surgeon (Mark Feuerstein), and the brilliant but unpredictable surgeon he works under ( Stanley Tucci).


NBC will bring the Emmy-winning drama "Medium," starring Patricia Arquette, back to its primetime lineup in the Wednesday 10 p.m. slot recently vacated by low-rated serial drama "Kidnapped," which has relocated to Saturday. "Medium," entering its third season, is expected to move into the Wednesday berth by mid November. NBC declined comment.


NBC did confirm Wednesday that it has greenlighted a new overnight entry, "Poker After Dark," that will air every night except Sunday at 2:05 a.m. "Dark" is a one-hour poker competition series in which six professional card sharks play in the back rooms of Las Vegas casinos for a $120,000 prize.


"There's a vibrant late-night audience looking for original programming," said Marc Graboff, president of NBC Universal Television, West Coast. "We felt this inside look at the professional poker scene is perfect for late-night television and those viewers seeking an unique and original broadcast."


The Saturday night edition, which will air at 1 a.m. ET following "Saturday Night Live," is a recap of the week's competition featuring commentary from the winner. "Dark" is hosted by Shana Hiatt, former host of "World Poker Tour."

BURBANK - October 25, 2006 - NBC will return the Emmy Award-nominated "Scrubs" and move freshman comedy "30 Rock" to Thursday nights beginning November 30 to form a new two-hour 8-10 p.m. (ET) comedy block with "My Name Is Earl" and "The Office." The change will follow a special super-sized night of comedy two weeks earlier on Thursday, November 16, with three 40-minute episodes of "My Name Is Earl," "The Office" and "30 Rock."


The announcements were made by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.


"We are excited about the prospect of two-hours of top-notch comedy on Thursday nights, which includes the return of 'Scrubs,'" said Reilly. "We will stay on-brand with the best comedy block on television, which will position us for the future on the night."


Beginning November 30, NBC's Thursday-night lineup will be "My Name Is Earl" (8-8:30 p.m. ET); "The Office" (8:30-9 p.m. ET); "Scrubs" (9-9:30 p.m. ET); and "30 Rock" (9:30-10 p.m. ET). "ER" will continue at 10-11 p.m. (ET).


Starting November 22, NBC will feature various specials on Wednesdays (8-9 p.m. ET), which will soon be announced.

It's official: NBC has pulled the plug on Kidnapped.


Repeats of Law & Order: Criminal Intent will take over the show's Saturday, 9pm/8pm home beginning November 4th.


Just 3.7 million viewers, including a paltry 1.2 rating/4 share among adults 18-49, tuned into the show's most-recent broadcast, making it the least-watched program on the night.


The series had widely been considered dead by various industry insiders upon the announcement that it would wrap its storyline after its initial 13-episode run.


In total just five of the 13 ordered episodes have aired, although it's not clear if production has been or will be completed on the remaining installments.

those bastards! i, for one, was still watching on Saturdays.

Back-to-Back Episodes of TIL DEATH to Air Nov. 9


Viewers can enjoy two all-new hours of THE O.C.s trademark mix of heart, humor, drama, action and romance next week when original episodes of the cult soap air Wednesday, Nov. 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Nov. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Leading off the night on Thursday, Nov. 9 (8:00-8:30 PM and 8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) will be back-to-back episodes of the new comedy TIL DEATH.


In The Gringos episode of THE O.C. airing Wednesday, Nov. 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), Ryan leaves Orange County to put an end to his turmoil, but he comes up empty on his search. Meanwhile, Seth acts like a jackass and finds some new friends (including guest star Steve-O) in Mexico who help him find what hes looking for; Harbor Schools dean forces Kaitlin and Julie to work together on a clothing drive; Julie is ostracized by the Cohens when they learn what shes been up to; and Taylor drops in unannounced on Summer, who continues to separate herself from everything Orange County


Thanksgiving morning finds the Cohen family still dealing with what happened in Mexico in The Cold Turkey episode of THE O.C. Thursday, Nov. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Sandy makes a deal to help Volchok but lets Ryan intervene and finally settle the score. Wondering if she can deal with Newport, Summer packs to come home for the holiday. And Julie cant deal with Kaitlin or Dr. Roberts and finds herself alone for most of Thanksgiving.


If you missed the season premiere of THE O.C., you can watch it on Fox Interactive Medias Myspace.com/fox and the Fox Television Station Groups MyFoxLocal websites in 24 owned-and-operated markets. The episode is available in high-quality streaming video through Fox on Demand on a free, ad-supported basis and viewers are able to watch it using the FOX Full Throttle video player. The player, delivered by Fox Interactive Media, offers a high-definition, quality viewing experience.


On Thursday, Nov. 9 the all-new TIL DEATH episode Your Mother or Your Wife (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) leads off a full hour of the Brad Garrett comedy. When Jeffs mother comes for a visit, tension builds between him and Steph, and Jeff turns to his neighbors for help. Between Joy insisting he send his mom home and Eddie instructing him to secretly make his mom No. 1, Jeff must learn the delicate art of balancing the women in his life. Next up (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) in The Ring, Eddie finally buys the engagement ring he promised Joy years ago.


EDITORS NOTE: THE RICH LIST and HAPPY HOUR have been pulled from the schedule.
