Schedule Changes: Harper’s, Chopping Block and Sit Down, Shut Up

Harper's Island logo

Could this be the slow death of a murder mystery? After only three weeks in a high profile time slot, is getting a new home. (Was it because it was getting slaughtered in the ratings?) The series - which only had 13 episodes to begin with - is now being pushed to Saturdays @ 9:00 effective immediately. Repeats will fill the new Thursday hole for the next two weeks.

Fans of FOX’s Sunday animation lineup will also see a change this weekend. A two-week trial run of has earned the comedy an earlier time slot. The freshman program will now air at 7:00 right before a repeat of American Dad. Original episodes of King of the Hill will then take over the 8:30 slot.

Thursday Ratings: ABC, CBS Split Sweeps Start

After what seemed like months of repeats, ABC returned last night with (mostly) new episodes. The network took the 10:00 hour away from Southland and won the night’s demos. CBS, though, was first place with the viewers.

Thursday Ratings: Parks Weakens Without Office

Although it’s still hard to say how Southland will do against an ABC original, the series held up remarkably well in its second week. Unfortunately, the same can’t entirely be said for Harper’s or Parks. The CBS mystery lost nearly 2 million in its second week while the comedy suffered a case of the post-Earl blues.

Elaine CassidyParker Posey

For today’s installment, we have Elaine Cassidy () on the left and Parker Posey (The Return of Jezebel James) on the right.

Maybe the killer on the CBS drama is really Abby Mills’ doppelganger?

Thursday Ratings: CBS and NBC Tie Post-Premieres

Depending on how you spin the numbers, the evening either belonged to NBC, CBS or both. The premiere of Southland won the 10:00 battle against Harper’s Island in the demos, but lost in the viewers. NBC tied CBS in the demos, but the Eye network won overall with the viewers. (Maybe we’ll just have to recalculate when ABC isn’t in repeats.)
