ABC Flips Tuesday, Wednesday Lineups; NBC Spotlights 'Crosswords'
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC is once again shuffling the deck chairs on its current Tuesday and Wednesday lineups as its "Primetime" franchise will now occupy the 10:00/9:00c hour on both nights with "i-Caught" and "NASCAR in Primetime" at 9:00/8:00c on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

The latest change comes after another disappointing performance by the network in said slots. "NASCAR" opened to a paltry 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 last night (according to preliminary Nielsen data), well behind "Dateline NBC" on NBC (2.3) and a repeat of "CSI: NY" on CBS (2.2).

To review, here's a breakdown of the Alphabet's new lineups, which take effect immediately:

Tuesdays
8:00/7:00c - "Just for Laughs"
8:30/7:30c - "Just for Laughs"
9:00/8:00c - "i-Caught" (New Time Slot)
10:00/9:00c - "Primetime: Crime" (New Time Slot)

Wednesdays
8:00/7:00c - "According to Jim" (Repeats)
8:30/7:30c - "According to Jim" (Repeats)
9:00/8:00c - "NASCAR in Primetime" (New Time Slot)
10:00/9:00c - "Primetime: The Outsiders" (Repeats, New Time Slot)

Meanwhile over at NBC, the Peacock has announced it will preview the upcoming syndicated game show "Crosswords" on Saturday, September 8 at 8:30/7:30c following its annual "Fall Preview" special. The half-hour project - a co-production of Program Partners, Merv Griffin Entertainment and the William Morris Agency - will then launch on various NBC owned-and-operated stations across the country on Monday, September 10.

The Peacock is no stranger to highlighting its sibling companies' properties in the recent years, including Bravo ("Project Runway," "Top Chef"), Sci Fi ("Battlestar Galactica," "Ghost Hunters," "Scare Tactics") and USA ("The 4400," "Psych").
