Fall TV Season Delivers a Mixed Bag in Prime Time
Seems like networks are more quick to respond to ratings this season than ever before. Apparantly some shows getting cut in as fast as two episodes. Ouch! I’m on board with most of the new popular ones–Blacklist and Sleepy Hollow. I’ve had Brooklyn Nine Nine on my DVR for weeks, just can’t be bored enough to try to watch it though.
While every network has at least a glimmer of a new hit, in an era of increased delayed viewing, patience is more crucial than ever. Decisions on the fates of shows must factor in quality as well as quantity. And the oldest scheduling technique in the world — putting a new show behind an established hit — is still the most effective tool at a network’s disposal.
