Last Tuesday's premiere of Average Joe: The Joes Strike Back got slapped in the face (as did its ratings) when George W. Bush's impromptu presidential address forced the Peacock to push the show back two hours. "We respectfully understand that there are things going on in the world far more important than reality shows," Joe executive producer Stuart Krasnow tells TVGuide.com. "However, we have complete confidence that the audience that may have missed our premiere [will watch tonight at 8 pm]. It's the most explosive night we've ever had on the [franchise]." OK, let's hope it doesn't involve that magician guy and his rabbit.
