The TV Midseason

This has become more and more of a trend in Prime Time TV. Mainly because certain shows that happen to fail to connect with the audience so they see if a midseason replacement can make the grade.

Hey 'All In the Family,' and 'Three's Company' are just two examples if midseason replacements that turned into big hits. More recently dramas 'The Unit' and 'Numb3rs' (both air on CBS) began as midseason replacements. It also turns out that 'Rules of Engagement' might be just what CBS needs inbetween 'Two and Half Men' and 'CSI: Miami.' since that is a freshmen show that has proven to do VERY well.

Out of only the freshmen shows Rules trails NBC's 'Heroes.'

In a later post I will make some predictions if what might work and will not work.
