Exclusive: ABC pulls Jamie Oliver, Expanded DWTS next Tue

Next Tuesday is a big night on TV. NBC premieres their much promoted and awaited, The Voice, but other nets aren’t sitting down. Fox is countering with a 90 minute Glee and ABC has just announced their plans:

Well meaning, but underperforming, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution has been pulled in favor of a DWTS highlight show WITH original content (DWTS: The Road To The Finals). That leads into the DWTS:Results show at 9p with recent American Idol Castoff Pia Toscano performing while DWTS pro (and reported beau), Mark Ballas, dances to her song.  (I can’t remember another time when an American Idol castoff has been okayed to perform on another network’s primetime show, while the IDOL season is still in progress). It’s “Guilty Pleasure” Week on DWTS and also performing on the results show will be New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys before they launch their much heralded tour.

As of Now: Jamie Oliver is pulled JUST for next week. Obviously that can change, but for now, it’s just a one week pre-emption.

CBS is scheduled for a night of reruns next week, but I would imagine that The Good Wife rerun that is scheduled will be pulled once again for an NCIS:LA rerun. Last night’s rerun got a 2.1, .1 ahead of last week’s original Good Wife. I also wouldn’t be shocked to see CBS stunt against The Voice with 3 eps of NCIS (original flavor). Those marathons on USA do great. UPDATE: Thu. CBS has scheduled an encore of The Mentalist for this Tuesday at 10, so no Good Wife rerun again.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
