ABC's Midseason Scheduling Shuffle


ABC has announced some interesting scheduling changes for midseason.


We learned yesterday that Lost will be returning on Wednesday, January 21st, 2009, but it was unclear which timeslot on Wednesdays would become its regular home.


Now it's been announced that Lost is airing on Wednesdays at 9PM, which means that the current show in that slot, Private Practice is out of a home. So...where's it moving to? Thursdays at 10PM, following Grey's Anatomy. The network wants to pair up the two shows and see if magic occurs. I'd venture to say that most people who watch Private Practice also watch Grey's (after all, Practice is a Grey's spinoff)...so it just might work.


The current show in the Thursday at 10PM slot, Life on Mars, would move to 10PM on Wednesdays, following Lost.


ABC is labeling this as a trial in scheduling for now, but by golly, I think it just may work!

I never understood why they didn't put Private Practice there to begin with, so good move.

I think they need to promote pushing daisies more by either making it Lost's lead in, or have it follow lost so it can get Lost's runoff. Two very unique shows, ABC does not really have another show similar enough in genre to Lost, to pair it up with. Pushing Daisies, I think would benefit the most from that timeslot and maybe saved because of it.

I'm with you spongebodge. If Private Practice follows Grey's, I'll watch it for sure and I just don't have the time to devote two hours to television! I guess real life will just be put on hold... :-P
