I kicked off a potentially recurring feature for
Adweek, on the biggest time slot showdown of each week. For week one, I chose Mondays at 8, which The Big Bang Theory had dominated during early fall.
But with Big Bang returning to Thursdays this week, the Monday night cakewalk is over for CBS, starting tonight.
That time slot is up for grabs again, between
2 Broke Girls, The Voice and Dancing with the Stars. Here was my prediction of how it will all shake out.
Time Slot Showdown of the Week: Monday, 8 p.m.
I’m very excited to begin contributing to
Adweek, as they look to expand their TV coverage online. My first story for them is something that I’ve wanted to write for more than a year: a look at the worst TV time slots on television, the ones that have been radioactive for years on end, and manage to bring about the end of almost every show that is aired there.
I looked back at several years of TV schedule grids, and pulled together this collection of
TV’s equivalent of death row.
Abandon hope, all ye who are scheduled here:
