Let’s hope you are not too impatient when it comes to watching the final episode of “Harry’s Law” — after all, NBC has just decided to make you wait for that much longer.
The network announced on Thursday that the series finale of “Harry’s” has been pushed out of the May sweeps — and will now air May 27 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern rather than at its originally-scheduled time this Sunday prior to “The Celebrity Apprentice” finale. What’s the reason for this? Let’s just say that the network believes that a repeat of “America’s Got Talent” will be more likely to draw them positive numbers in the 18-49 demographic (not to mention bring in more viewers for the series itself, which premiered in the midst of heavy competition).
This news is also going to effect the few people still watching “The Firm” on Saturday nights, as this show has also been pushed back a week from May 19 to the 26th. The thinking here is that the “AGT” premiere will air Saturday, and the second episode will repeat on Sunday.
Do you think this is a smart move, or one final smack in the face to “Harry’s” fans, who have already been told that they are too old for the network’s advertisers?
