‘Hawaii Five-0’ season 3: CBS to take advantage of AFC Championship

Hawaii Five-0Who said that airing new episodes of popular TV shows is only something that you do following the Super Bowl? CBS has already decided that this coveted slot is going to go to their coveted new series “Elementary,” but in the process they have also decided to give a certain Hawaiian murder mystery show a little bit of love in the process.

The network announced Thursday that following the AFC Championship Game a week from Sunday, which is traditionally the second-most-watched football game on TV (tied with the NFC Championship and next to the Super Bowl), they are going to run a new episode of “Hawaii Five-0,” a show that could use a little bit of help considering that “Revolution” has helped to swallow up some of its ratings on Monday night this year.

Not only that, but this episode is going to also stand out for another reason: it will be featuring the music of legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix, in particular some unreleased tracks from his “People, Hell and Angels” album that will be coming out March 5. Therefore, this could be an opportunity for some fans of the late guitarist to hear some of his music before you get a chance to buy the album. (Then again, there are probably some music purists who may not want to remember their first listen of the music by linking it directly to a TV show … any TV shwo, not just this one.)

We anticipate this being a very smart move for CBS to make, as they can program in a repeat on one of the other Monday nights (possibly one with a new episode of “Revolution”) so that they can capitalize on this chance.
