NBC Banishes "Crusoe" to Saturdays
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Robinson Crusoe is about to get shipwrecked again - this time on Saturday nights.

NBC's "Crusoe" will shift to Saturdays at 8:00/7:00c starting December 6, network sources confirmed this afternoon. The show will air its final Friday broadcast tonight.

Taking over for "Crusoe" on Fridays will be "Lipstick Jungle" at 9:00/8:00c and the return of "Dateline NBC" at 10:00/9:00c, beginning December 5.

Here's a quick recap:

Fridays (as of December 5)
8:00/7:00c - (Holiday Specials)/"Deal or No Deal"*
9:00/8:00c - "Lipstick Jungle" (New Time Slot, Pre-Empted 12/19, 12/26)*
10:00/9:00c - "Dateline NBC"

Saturdays (as of December 6)
8:00/7:00c - "Crusoe" (New Time Slot, Pre-Empted 12/13, 1/3, 1/24)*
9:00/8:00c - (Various Repeats)
10:00/9:00c - (Various Repeats)

"Crusoe" posted a dismal 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 last week, a number unlikely to improve in the show's new home.

* Updated: Holiday specials will fill in for "Deal or No Deal" until December 26 while "Crusoe" and "Jungle" will air through January 31 and January 9, respectively, but be pre-empted for movies and other specials on the denoted weeks.
