CBS announced at the upfronts today that Hawaii Five-0 will move to Fridays at 9:00 p.m. sandwiched between Undercover Boss and Blue Bloods.
On the surface this may seem bad…but let me share with you a few things Peter Lenkov tweeted to the fans to help with their dismay.
1. Show got picked up for S4
2. Numbers ran for 6 years on Fri nights
3. Better chance for live eyes on Fri than Monday at 10pm
4. Regarding CSI:NY suffering in their move to Fri’s, he says it was a 9 yr old show…
5. Better chance for H50/Blue Bloods crossover
TV’ Cancellation Bear twitter acct had this to say:
Moving to Friday is what shows do when they die, is only chatter….Only applies if it happens mid-season.
Fans lamenting H50’s move to Fri’s should know as it’s already syndicated and could last a very long time there.
My thoughts: I agree with Cancellation Bear. Moving to Friday takes some of the pressure off from having to get super high ratings on a highly competitive night. Undercover Boss and Blue Bloods are well respected shows that maybe aren’t powerhouses but they are highly respected and have good ratings. I think H50 is a good fit there. Especially with Blue Bloods.
That said, it’s sad CBS didn’t give it a better slot and instead chose to keep favoriting their already 3 big shows but didn’t we expect that from CBS all along? FU CBS.
Also, that will mean I’ll have to redo some of my daily themes. There’s no way I can get pic spam up by Sunday when episode airs on Friday nights. Have no fear…you will get it! I’ll just have to pick a different day. *puts on thinking cap*
