Why did NBC abandon the ...

Question: Why did NBC abandon the terrific Three Wishes? There was talk of moving it to Wednesday nights at 8 pm/ET, which made perfect sense. But then nothing happened. Friday nights at 9 makes no sense, especially without a lead-in. This is the type of show that could run for years — at 8. My family loves watching it. Is it too late for another network to save it? Answer: Probably. (Rule of thumb: Once a network cancels a show, the likelihood of anyone else picking it up is minuscule at best.) You're right on one count: This is the type of show that could run for years at 8 pm/ET. Another example is Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I doubt Three Wishes was actually less enjoyable, and certainly it was not less public-spirited, than Makeover: Home, but it was ineptly scheduled (NBC has a real gift for that), and what an outrage that it's being replaced by something called Most Outrageous TV Moments. (This may qualify as one. ... read more

UNFULFILLED WISHES

As we predicted earlier this week, NBC has pulled the plug on Three Wishes. The final episode is expected to air next month. Additionally, the Peacock has cut back Law & Order's episode order this season from 24 to 22 episodes, but an NBC rep insists the reduction is due to the Olympics and not to Serena's latent lesbianism. read more

Entertainment Television has given the greenlight to #1 Single, an unscripted series chronicling newly single singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb's reentry into the dating world. read more

What is CBS thinking? I love ...

Question: What is CBS thinking? I love Threshold and will follow it whenever it is on, but I am very afraid that if CBS shuffles it around, viewers will give up on it and we'll lose it. Do they think that this swap will be mutually beneficial to Threshold and Close to Home, or is it more geared to one or the other? I can't imagine that this will help Threshold, as it will be up against the very successful Law & Order: SVU, which seems to me to be bigger competition for Threshold than Three Wishes. I really hate this change, as Tuesday already seems engorged with good shows, while Friday was much less crowded. How can I handle three shows at once with only one VCR?! (This is also a problem in the hour before!) PS. Love the column. Answer: Lots of questions prompted by this schedule change. Such as Sam's "Is Threshold permanently being moved to Tuesdays?" The answer: Unclear. For now, the switch has only been announced for the rest of the month, which because of preemptions in the time ... read more
