    I’ve heard Fridays overwhelmingly referred to as ‘tv death zone.’ Is it true that scripted programs scheduled there are most likely imminently doomed? Also, Grimm aside, can/have genre shows survive/d on Fridays?

    • Friday slots are indeed referred to as the tv death zone. However, each network uses its Friday slots differently. Some use it to air veteran shows which wouldn’t get really good ratings anyway and just leave them on Friday. This way they still can add episodes to their syndication deals (= big money) and at the same time earn some money via commercials. CBS mostly uses the slot to carry shows to (and through) syndication. Other networks use Friday more as burn-off time slots. If a show isn’t performing well it will air on Friday and be cancelled asap. Most networks are also keen on airing unscripted shows on Fridays. Concerning genre shows: the networks that use Friday as a syndication slot, will likely not put a genre show in these slots. These shows are usually not as well suited for syndication as police procedurals are. NBC is the only network that can currently pull it off to air genre shows on Friday nights. Mostly because Grimm is doing well on that night and it can now pair up other genre shows with it.
