Just to get somethin' going, I just saw ABC's Fall schedule, and they've decided to dick around with the chemistry they had with the double-dose of JJ Abrams shows, by moving them around.

Lost will now be on at 9pm on Wednesdays in Alias' old slot with a lead-in of two new sitcoms, one of which is created by Freddie Prinze, Jr. Alias will thus be moving to Thursdays at 8pm.

Did the people at ABC fail to notice that Alias was doing rather well with it's new lead-in of Lost than it had done in the previous three years? They had made a very smart decision by pairing these two shows with similar creators involved, and capitalised on the fandoms of both that would likely have some crossover. Now, that's all been shot to hell.

Any thoughts?

Survivor on CBS and OC on FOX woll probably kill Alias on Thursdays but hey it'll probably beat the NBC shows at 8!

I can't comment on Alias because I don't watch it, but it's never a good sign for Freddie Prinze, Jr. to be involved with anything. Add to that the fact that I generally dislike sitcoms, so I won't be watching ABC until 9:00 on Wednesdays.

Oh, no! Now I'll have to miss Alias for work. That's upsetting.

But on a more relevant-to-the-discussion note, that's moronic. Lost was a good lead-in for Alias, and I don't know that Alias is strong enough in it's current state to survive without a lead-in like that, especially if it's up against really popular shows. Oh well. Really, I think Alias has outlived it's quality, so it may be just as well if it doesn't come back for another season after this next one.
