"MIDSEASON, SLOT TBD
NBC has Awake, the Jason Isaacs dual-reality series, waiting in the wings. It's quite possible Awake will finish out the Friday slot occupied by Chuck once that series completes its run in December."

I don't know. Friday does not seem the best. With all the "supernatural" shows that night I don't want Awake to get lost in the crowd.

:roll: Friday is not the best night of the week for TV. Friday night = date night. I hope it doesn't end up there.

Monday is bad-Dancing with the Stars
Tuesday, NBC has The Voice and they are not going to touch that.
Wed & Thurs are bad-American Idol

Those are the perennial top 2 shows.
Friday maybe OK. :D

I'm not feeling a Friday time slot, for these reasons:

01. When I'm home, I'm either watching Supernatural or recording it
02. IF the DVR is recording two different things, I can't watch a third
03. A lot of the time I'm out on Fridays :(

Ah well, if it ends up there, I'll just have to make sure to set up Supernatural and Awake to record before my hubby gets his paws on the remote ::rofl

Char, you may be right unless they can grab one of the 10pm slots.

There's going to be pros and cons with every night... I think Friday sounds OK.

I will probably have to wait for the DVD release anyway...

Let me throw something else in the pot. EW.com had several items on NBC bringing back Fear Factor (why-o-why-o-why) either at mid season or the spring. Pessimist that I am I started wondering if that would affect Awake. I know it's silly but ........... since we've been too happy I'm afraid someone will pour cold water on everything.

I just saw a teensy pic of Jason in the June 3/10, 2011 issue of Entertainment Weekly! It's so small I had to go through the mag twice! I'm excited! I hope it gets a good time slot and not opposite something that's popular.

Yes, Jason was worried about being in the American Idol time slot too.

I just read that NBC is canceling Playboy Club (or whatever the name was, The Bunny Club?) Maybe they'll have brains enough to slide Awake into That time slot and NOT give it the dreaded Friday. Fridays will put a nail in it's coffin I fear. Aside from Dallas (does anyone remember Dallas?) I think that was the only show that did well on a Friday night, and it was back to back with another show which I have forgotten already, but it was 2 soaps. Even with all of Awake's increadable strengths, which I wholeheartedly believe in, they arent afforded the luxury of a slow start out of the gate, Fridays slows them out of the gates.

No Monday. That would put it opposite Castle and Hawaii 50. Both hits. NBC has already said it hoped to put the new Brian Williams new show there.
We'll just have to wait and see.

People don't want to see a show that makes them think.
They say they do but they don't watch when they have one on.

Oh boy, Friday is the worst night for US tv- all shows fear Friday night. :tchuh: For the 10 of us in the US who do not watch DWTS or American Idol (or the other 50 bajillion reality shows), it would be nice to watch something decent on those nights, but I understand the fear of competing against them. :???:
