A fun read from THR's James Hibberd examining some of the time-period battles coming in the fall.
OK, this is more a ratings massacre waiting to happen than a battle.
Guess what time-period he was referring to with that line?
Here's what he had to say about Mondays at 10pm:
3. Mondays at 10 p.m.: ABC's "Castle" vs. NBC's "Chase" vs. CBS' "Hawaii Five-O"
If ABC and NBC thought they had it tough airing against "CSI: Miami," they better get ready because a big wave is coming at them. "Hawaii Five-O" is perfectly on brand for CBS and the Oahu setting gets the network out of the grim atmospherics of some of its other procedurals. Sure, "Five-O" could crash, but on paper this a strong replacement for "Miami" in this slot -- even with having a presumably weaker lead-in from a new comedy ("Mike & Molly") than "Miami" enjoyed from "Big Bang Theory."
I'm not sure that Castle fans are breaking into a sweat. Yet.
