We speculated some time ago that ABCs schedule was looking pretty full and raised the question “Is it really possible for S.H.I.E.L.D. to premiere this fall”.
Yesterday, sadly for “Zero Hour” fans ABC announced the show has been axed. “Zero Hour” has been airing at 8pm on Thursdays and took over from the also cancelled “Last Resort”. Repeats of “Shark Tank” will air in the slot for the time being.
Pair this information with comments from ABC President Paul Lee and we wonder if Thursdays at 8pm will be the spot for S.H.I.E.L.D. come the beginning of the Fall season.
Back in January the Hollywood Reporter said:
While Shawn Ryan’s Last Resort didn’t work on Thursdays at 8 p.m. as the network made an unsuccessful bid for male viewers, [ABC President Paul Lee] said he hoped S.H.I.E.L.D. would not only appeal to the network’s coveted demo but also women and families.
So what do you think about Thursdays at 8pm for S.H.I.E.L.D.? Would Thursdays work for you?
