I was just looking for the next episode of 3 LBS
, and after reading your column, now understand why I couldn't find it. You say CBS has to go back to the drawing board. Frankly, I was rather upset when they moved Without a Trace
to Sunday night. People are tired and usually go to bed early on Sundays. CBS would dominate Tuesday nights if they moved Without a Trace
to after The Unit
Again, I'm not buying that 10-pm-is-too-late argument, on Sundays of all nights. I do wonder how long it will be before CBS experiments with moving one of its successful franchises to Tuesdays (and not in repeats), to see if there's any way to reverse that jinx. Without a Trace
would be a good pick, but that would leave a hole on Sundays, where the move to back-to-back procedurals (Cold Case
) is still relatively new. So I wouldn't expect to see a change there anytime soon.
