ABC is pre-empting Cupid next Tuesday, replacing it with an original episode of The Unusuals, which normally airs on Wednesday’s following Lost. The move is an attempt by ABC to give the show a bit more exposure (it’ll lead out of a results episode of Dancing With the Stars).
A second original installment will air in its normal Wednesday time slot next week, witch Cupid back with original episodes the following Tuesday.
At CBS, the network is pushing NCIS and The Mentalist up an hour to 9:00pm and 10:00pm, respectively, in favor of repeats of hit comedies The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother at 8:00pm.
Eye is likely testing the waters for comedy on Tuesday – a night that once upon a time was home to several hit laffers in primetime, but today does not boast a single half-hour at any of the nets.
