    NBC has not been doing CF any favors by pulling it from the schedule this summer. I suppose they are limited with number of repeats after all those misplaced Saturday night repeats. They really should have moved AGT back to 8/7 and started repeats in new time slot at 10/9 on Tuesday, instead of letting POI gain traction in the time slot.
