The Deathslot. That's what NBC should call its Monday at 10PM timeslot. That's when CBS airs CSI:Miami, the #1 or #2 show on tv (aside from American Idol or other non-regularly scheduled shows.)
It's a tough time. For some reason, Miami continues to dominate. And no matter what NBC does, it just can't win. Studio 60 suffered from the Deathslot. The Black Donnellys is suffering. It's not that these shows are all bad. They just can't win.
So maybe it shouldn't try.
Instead, I think NBC should put reruns in that slot. But not just any rerun. Battlestar Galactica reruns.
