I hope they wait now until February for TAR so it can get a nice build up. A friend of mine filmed an episode of Power of Ten and was told they would be on once they pull Kid Nation off the air.
i think kid nation is going to get pulled in a couple weeks. how long can they let ratings fall reguardless of a strike by the writers.
I do think that Kid Nations fate depends on this week. It it stays this low, it will be pulled. But Unlike most shwos like this that get pulled that usually means SAturday runs or run them off online only. I think its possible that they will hold it until the strike authorization vote, just to see how the wind blows and thats not far off.
Right now the only reason that makes any since for AR to come back before February, is if three things all happen (four would really help.
Kid Nations atings continue to slide, Moonlight does as poorly or worse this Friday, Viva Bombs on both THursday and Sunday (God how I want that to happen regardless), and Cane needs to fall further.
Witht he first set of sweeps coming up, CBS needs to do okay. Th ePOwer of !0, showed that it would underperform agains't a full network scedule (instead of the weaker summer), they have 8 episodes of Jericho that can be run. But does the stuido think it can deliver strongly. It rarely got over 10 million viewers last year (though its demo's when it did was stronger then AR). And it has one other show waiting int eh wings that can be used immediately to feel holes with originals, but no its an unknown.
My question to the detectives. If season 12 started, and did okay and a strike happened. Does that lead enough time for the producers to cast, plan and film another cycle for March April and May. Because if a strike happens that will be when the networks need holes plugged.
If it can be done, then AR is a viable hole filler now. If not then it would be far smarter to hold off. I personally think its smarter to hold off, and green light another cycle if the strike is a go.
