The suits decided that was one too many new dramas to promote during Sunday game play, so they've moved "Kidnapped" to Wednesday at 10, longtime home to "Law & Order."
"We needed to lighten up Tuesday," Reilly said.
"Law & Order: Criminal Intent" will be moved from Friday to Tuesday to fill the hole left by "Kidnapped." Wednesday's "Law & Order," displaced by "Kidnapped," is moving into that "L&O: CI" Friday 10 p.m. berth.
Friday night at 10:00 p.m.? That's about the third-least desirable slot in network television. If you want a series to fail so that you can kill it, that's where you hide it.
Don't be surprised if next season is the last.
