Post-Upfronts Analysis: Here's Your 2012-2013 Fall TV Schedule, Day by Day

We've seen the major networks' individual schedules for 2012-2013, but they're not just striving to achieve personal bests; they're looking to drink the blood of their rivals. Everything starts with scheduling, so let's take a look at the new TV schedule on a day-by-day basis to find out who has the advantage heading into the first half of the 2012-2013 bloodbath season.


From a ratings perspective, Sundays belong to NBC. Sorry, writers of television—giant concussed men running around on grass are what America wants to watch! The two newcomers to the evening are Revenge and The Mentalist, but neither of those shows will take a hit. While the audiences for Revenge and The Good Wife might overlap a bit, I don't see them fighting for viewers; if Revenge does lag, it will be the typical sophomore slump. What will be interesting is to see how ABC's Sundays perform overall in the post-Desperate Housewives era, seeing as the network has replaced the show with a couple second-year series and a rookie. Long-running shows have built-in audiences, and it's a lot harder to launch new shows now than it was even five years ago. Fox, for its part, should stay unaffected with its ageless cartoons. If you don't count cable shows, there's not a whole lot anyone should worry about on Sundays. Carry on!

Degree of carnage: Minor pushing and shoving.


Hey Mondays of fall 2012! Why do you look so much like Mondays of spring 2012? Think you were fine just the way you were? That's just lazy. The Voice and Dancing With the Stars will continue the age-old battle of dancing vs. singing, while CBS holds steady with comedy. Fox is wisely using the opportunity to sneak in some drama, but being The Mob Doctor up against 2 Broke Girls, The Voice, and Dancing With the Stars is going to result in a rough go for the newbie. Revolution should be as fine on Mondays at 10pm as it would be on anywhere else; it's a genre show, so it faces its own set of ratings challenges. With all the different offerings, the only real beef here is between The Voice and Dancing With the Stars, with everyone else staying in their own corners.

Degree of carnage: Unsexy pillow fight.


When did you get so funny, Tuesday? Did you finally redeem that gift certificate for improv classes I got you last Christmas? Tuesdays in 2012 will yield stories of the Great Comedy Massacre that you will tell your grandchildren's grandchildren. Everyone knew that Fox's comedy block was coming, but NBC and ABC rudely joined the party without being invited (ABC anchored its Tuesday comedies with a multi-camera comedy last season), and your DVR won't even be able to handle 9pm. Happy Endings vs. New Girl vs. Go On, followed by Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 vs. The Mindy Project vs. The New Normal? Who's the moron who scheduled Happy Endings against the very like-minded New Girl? That's just stupid-town banana trousers. ABC, you just signed Happy Endings' death warrant. And you have to feel bad for Emily Owens, M.D., a lighthearted awkward-lady-doctor dramedy geared toward older audiences (well, older than The CW's normal viewership) that has to go up against three other networks fishing for the same viewers. Plus, people who are looking for an awkward-lady-doctor comedy will likely tune into the higher-profile The Mindy Project. Basically, there are too many networks fighting for the same audience. Cannibalism at its finest. Elsewhere, DWTS and The Voice continue their slap-fight, and CBS's NCIS block should continue to dominate the evening. At 10pm, I'm expecting big things from Vegas, while Private Practice and Parenthood will continue to slide.

Degree of carnage: Hair-pulling, eye-gouging, hidden razor blades. This won't be pretty.


It's Fox's The X Factor that is LITERALLY an X factor here. Britney Spears and Demi Lovato joining the judges' panel will be the new circus in town, but it's quite clear that The X Factor won't be the next American Idol because everybody's getting tired of this sort of garbage. ABC and CBS will remain steady, but ABC is still searching for a good 9:30pm complement to Modern Family and based on the trailer alone, I don't The Neighbors is it. That could hurt Nashville a bit, but there's a lot of strong buzz behind the country-music drama and it should easily outperform NBC's Chicago Fire to become the new talked-about Wednesday show now that Revenge is moving Sundays. The CW is trying something other than America's Next Top Model (which is now on Fridays) on Wednesdays, and there's a potential block the network can be proud of in Arrow and Supernatural if Arrow lives up to early anticipation. Worst case scenario, Arrow flops and Supernatural continues to decline along with its creative direction. And then there's NBC, which continues to stand for Nothing But Comedies with a random 8pm comedy hour. However, Animal Practice and Guys With Kids couldn't be more mismatched, and both will suffer as a result. That's too bad, because TV needs more monkeys dressed in doctor costumes riding around on remote-controlled toy ambulances.

Degree of carnage: There'll be lots of posturing and gesturing and tough-talking, but this is actually everyone playing it safe.


Now we're talking! Veterans versus rookies versus upstarts! This is CBS's non-NCIS monster night with The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men back together again and leading into a pair of potential next-gen CBS hits in Person of Interest and new drama Elementary. But Fox's decision to move Glee to Thursdays creates the most dangerous war zone of the week with Person of Interest, Grey's Anatomy and NBC's once-mighty comedy block all going head-to-head. And with The Office possibly finishing up after this next season, even it can be a player. ABC's Last Resort actually fits in nicely at 8pm even though it's a 10pm series. There's like two nights' worth of TV on Thursdays. Hunker down and get ready. But what's the deal with NBC continuing Rock Center with Brian Williams? Are you that short on money, NBC?

Degree of carnage: Cannibalistic royal rumble.


Networks continue to pimp Fridays as legitimate TV nights, but really, they're like the Island of Broken Toys. Fridays are where networks exile their leftovers—the shows they'd get crucified for canceling but that don't pull in the ratings to justify airing mid-week. Even though there are some great shows on Fridays (Fringe, Community), nothing's going to do particularly well here.

Degree of carnage: Fridays are what the battlefield looks like after the battle is over, full of whimpering and moaning and mercy-killing.


Which night of TV looks like the biggest fight to you? Which shows do you think got the lousiest time slots?

Here's hoping that Elementary is worthy of Arthur Conan Doyle and POI. Being derived from one of the greatest classic mystery writers and following the work of one of the best modern mystery/suspense scriptwriters (Jonathan Nolan) give the show much to live up to, not to mention following intense actors of the caliber of Caviezel and Emerson, so please make it worthwhile, people. (Lucy Liu, we're talking to you.) Let the other networks' shows be delegated to DVR-land.



And Mr. Quinones, when OWN picks up your show, it's time to get a new concept. "What Would You Do?" is one of those "whimpering" shows mentioned above--what started out as a possibly interesting but potentially dangerous concept (after all, standing up for someone is good, but what happens the first time someone does so because they think they're on the show, only to find out that Mr. Q isn't coming out from the back, and that the baddie in front of them is actually bad?) has now become a whiny attempt at pushing various agendas by making stereotypes of every possible group but the ones Mr. Q and/or ABC agrees with or feels sorry for. And you're obviously out of ideas anyway when you appeal to the viewers to write them for you. Sort of like Gordon Ramsay's comment that you know a restaurant is going under when they start mass-pushing big coupons. ("You could win a trip to nowhere by doing our writers' jobs for them!" Whee.)



ABC/Disney--this is why Warner Bros is going to have the better summer at the box office, and why CBS will keep ruling this fall--the writing. Good, solid, agenda-free storywriting that deals with people's hearts and souls, not their gripes or desperate need to plug their unasked-for opinions.

I refuse to watch any new shows on NBC. The only 2 shows I will watch on there is Law & Order SVU and Parenthood since they are pretty safe from being hacked. NBC has disappointed me so much with their stupid cancelling of great shows, i.e. Harry's Law, AWAKE and previously Trauma. I am sick to death of falling for a great show then they cancel it. So NBC will do without ME. NBC execs are idiots, but then we knew that before witht the Tonight Show fiasco. IDIOTS!!

Every year, the networks get worse and worse. Looks like 2012 will be the year they finally hit bottom. Other than Supernatural, Fringe, Bones and Castle, I don't see anything here worth wasting my time on. So no conflicts or "battles" here. Vegas looks to have a good cast so why am I absolutely certain it'll be this year's "Charlies Angels" (the remake, not the original)?

I'm sorry I know this is IRRELEVANT but I got sadistically GLEEful at the opening pic that looked like Reese was taking out Rachel Berry with an assault rifle. I don't condone violence any other time but I'd be lying if I didn't say I laughed out loud...repeatedly. Moving on...



Thursdays. Thursdays will be a fight. POI going up against GLee, Grey's Anatomy, and presumed (whatever) new hit Beauty and the Beast? That's a rumble Sharks and Jets style. Ummm East coast and west coast? North and South? whatever. That's a fight. Not to mention the new hit Scandal going up against Elementary... I think Sundays will have a bit of clashing as well (I thank goodness I have 2 DVR's...hey, no judging okay?). But everything else seems pretty steady.

The only other returning shows I watch are Scandal and Grimm, so there are no conflicts since none of these shows air at the same time. There are a few cable series that i enjoy, which I watch on line.

My daughters will be beyond thrilled for DWTS Results being moved to 8:00! They can watch it then, without having to hear from me in the AM who gets booted. My husband will be bummed that "Revenge" will be up against "Walking Dead", but he'll deal, and he has On Demand or Online. I still don't know if "Rizzoli & Isles" will still be up against "Hawaii Five-0", but once again, O or O, so it's all good. OUaT is staying put: GOOD!

They should once and for all capitalize Internet streaming, add as many commercials as necessary, and make Internet viewings count in the Nielsen's equation, for chrissake. For instance, if I lived in the US, I'd want to watch Fringe and Grimm on Fridays, which air at the same time. My preference is for Fringe, but I'd feel bad about passing on the other show I like. Here I download both and watch one after the other. No reality, no football, no dancing/singing contests, by the way. Mainly fantasy dramas for adults. Internet is the wave of the future (actually, of today, better yet, a few days ago..., but TV execs don't seem to realize that). Once again, make Internet ratings count now!

You should all appreciate the fact that you get to watch it all on your tv and have the thuesday or thursdaynight feeling.

With so many of these shows available streaming, conflincts aren't as big a problem as they once were. But then again, at one time they would run a full season through without breaks, then repeat it completely so if you missed the series the first time around you could catch it's full run in the spring and summer.

I've been downloading shows for the last 10 years now. I watch when *I* want to watch and I don't concern myself with what the networks schedule against each other. If I want to see both Chicago Fire *and* CSI *and* Nashville, I can (and I will). The idea that what gets scheduled against each other is just soooooo last century. Does this really still matter?

It matters!.



Those shedules plus the contents of the show is what attract viewers (+ ratings). This is what pulls in advertisers and make the business side of the network. At the end that is what defines the lifespan of the a show. We all (am assuming everyone knows how/from where to download shows) can watch what we want, when we want, but if you want to watch your CSI next season (after next), try to watch at scheduled time or in a rate-able way or else it will be canceled because of low rating numbers/viewers and you will be watching Marcel Quantum CSI kitchen when u want to watch iT.





I think...

you are technically right, of course, at least at this moment in time.



but TV will eventually have to adapt to what dragon was getting at.



Whether that's pop up ads or even more product placement, TV will eventually be indiscernible from the Internet (it already is in many ways, with computer monitors and TVs looking very much the same, Hulu, Netflix, etc etc.)

I believe no Tv Series is set live even during airing showing. Because the cast & crew film the episodes way before the premiere dates come showing on Tv. We're just watching a tape recorded of the episode they've done, comes to be premiered in a selected month and day each week. And any shows debuts into the fall schedule, are actually started filming in july & august and shown on tv in september, october and november. So, nobody has been watching tv shows live really even on Tv. And also, online watchings is just has same as Tv watchings... Because the episodes by the cast & crew are filmed on tape, way before the selected premiere date of the episodes each week.

So, like, the people in the magic box are not for realsies?? Wow, you just blew my mind! I did find it odd that Ben Linus turned into Harold Finch and Jesus turned into John Reese... I thought "no wonder he's that good, he's Jesus for his sake!"

So what is it, then, robots??? Clones??? Witchcraft??? please Captain Obvious, save me from this predicament...

Also, Nikita. Maybe he meant new shows? CW will never renew The Secret Circle...just let it go as you would for any show on any network and look forward to a new good or better show. HBO, AMC, FX, Starz, Showtime, NBC, ABC, Fox, CBS, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, Cartoon Network, A&E, Adult Swim, TBS, TNT, USA Network, ABC Family, MTV, PBS, BET, Comedy Central,etc = all have cancelled shows people loved. You just have to live with that...Some things get cancelled sooner, some things get renewed sooner, some things get renewed later, some things get cancelled later, some things die sooner, some things die late, some things die too late, some things die way too late, some things live long, some things live way too long, some things deserve to get cancelled, some things deserve to die, some things deserve to live....it's the way of life :)

I think for most people this whole list is irrelevant because no one I know watches TV live anymore. I just continue watching shows I like and pick some new ones that sound interesting and watch them all online. I don't even own a TV.

It's like network TV isn't even trying anymore...and what's up with ABC? Ever since they lost Monday night football it's as if they don't care if men watch their sows at all.
