    If the big wigs at ABC they would not be moving Revenge to Sundays. They’d move it to Thursdays @ 9pm and move Grey’s Anatomy to 8pm on Thursdays. Moving Revenge to Sundays @ 9pm is a stupid move.

    I think ABC made a good move moving Revenge to Sundays. Revenge was averaging around 7 to 8 million viewers a week, if Revenge can get some of the old Desperate Housewives viewers to check in, it could do very well. The Only thing I would change with the Thursday night is Having “Scandel @ 8; Grey’s Anatomy at 9 and Private Practice at 10

    @Ben from VA However, doesn’t Scandal need a lead-in program like Grey’s Anatomy or Private Practice (which averages big numbers in viewers). I completely forgot that ABC premiered Scandal and renewed it until looking on Wikipedia. I kind of think that Revenge should be on Sundays. However, I kind of think that Private Practice should be on Sundays, because it is about to end. Also, just throwing this out here, but does anyone think that ABC should have renewed Missing?

    Well, that’s one way to cut the payroll on your show.
