I thought about doing a full-on blog post about NBC's "rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic" midseason schedule, but I realized pretty early on that I was just saying "I don't really see this show doing much better here" about almost every show on every night, so I decided to just get lazy and reproduce the tweets I made about some of the more interesting points. Not mentioned is the pairing of newbies The Cape and Harry's Law on Monday in January and February, but suffice to say I don't have particularly high hopes. There are a few things I might expand upon in other posts (particularly the 3-hour comedy idea), but this is pretty much the gist of what I felt I had to add to the discussion.
"#TheEvent and #Parenthood has got to be one of the least compatible drama pairings ever."
"#LOLA has a shot at growth on Tues, but depends in large part on whether #BiggestLoser can rebound at all from its awfully-rated fall cycle."
"The #Chase/ #SVU crime pairing on Wednesday looks a lot like the net's #Life/ #LawAndOrder Wed pairing 2 years ago and will rate similarly."
"#SVU will rise a couple tenths at 10, more bc of not facing #CriminalMinds than "it's a 10:00 show," but increase will be vastly overblown."
"If comedy at 10:00 had to be done, #30Rock and #Outsourced were probably the two correct shows to put there. Interested to see how they do."
"I'm happy that #ParksAndRec won't go away without us [n]ever knowing how it would've done after #TheOffice."
"Friday and Sunday lineups were pretty inevitable IMO. Too many other problems to bother "trying" on Friday for the time being."
