    I stand with you, Brian, but I do not think we will receive what we want.

    I am glad REVENGE is moving to Sundays. With HOUSEWIVES and CSI: MIAMI gone, and perhaps THE GOOD FIE off to a new night, Sunday is competitive. REVENGE is my choice.

    So sad to hear this! Sunday night is where tv shows go to die! I can appreciate that ABC wants to build an audience for Nashville by putting after Modern Family and its family of hit sitcoms, BUT not at the expense of Revenge, please!! Revenge is not a show that should be shown in the still pseudo-family friendly hour of 9PM. I fear the network may push creator / head writer Kelly to mellow out the show to match the new day and time and that will seriously jeopardize the show’s integrity and will drive away its loyal audience. Please, ABC, if you send Revenge to die after the bs you pulled with your daytime line-up….well, I wouldn’t want to be you.

    No Sunday is not where tv shows go to die, it is the Friday night slots and Saturday (when a lot of people are out and not sitting home watching tv) …Sunday is a very big TV night. Shows have stayed on that night for years and receive big audiences.

    I too wait to hear One Life to Live is coming back. I think Revenge will do just fine on Sunday Night at 9pm, it already has a fan base so there should be no ratings dip.

    I can’t wait to see Jonathan Jackson in his new sexy role with the added bonus of hearing him sing. I’ve always thought for a long time that he is just one of those elite actors that deserves more than acting in a soap, that his special talent was being lost on most of the night time viewers and boy oh boy are they in for a treat something us GH fans have been blessed to witness. Good luck JJ I’ll be watching.

    I think this is a stupid move. ABC had a strong line-up with The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Don’t Trust The B in Apt. 23 and then the incredibly good Revenge…..I absolutely hate it, when networks take a hit show and start moving it around to another night. What in the Hell is wrong with ABC?! Do they want their shows to fail? Now instead of beating all the competition on Wednesday night, they will move to Sunday where there are tons of great programs on other networks that they will have to compete with. Here are the names of just a few that Revenge will now have to compete with……Nurse Jackie, The Big C, The Killing, Game of Thrones…..just another bad move by ABC.

    Revenge has many followers and is strong enough to stand against any show.
    What ABC needs to do is give GH a great lead-in.
    Lead-ins are very important and GH has the failed Revolution for its’ lead-in, terrible.

    No doubt. GH would raise its’ numbers with a good lead-in..

    My point exactly…..why mess with success? I know it has a strong following…..I’m one of those people that loves this show, but I find when networks start moving shows around, they risk the chance of losing viewership, because the show is now in a different swimming pool, swimming with other sharks. I just don’t think it’s a chance worth taking.

    How about OLTL for a lead-in for GH? How about giving FV/RC two hours for combining OLTL and GH? How about ABC going back in time and fixing the stupidest mistake every made in daytime when it canceled OLTL?

    .
    I read that this is Revenges last season/then it will done/over….
    So, it would make no difference if it goes to Sunday night..

    gloria replied

    YES DAVID YES. Why can’t we wake up from the nightmare of no OLTL? I am dying to know what all was gonna happen on there that we will never know. IT WAS SO GOOD.

    The killing and Game of Thrones are on at differen’t times than Revenge will be- but hopefully it wont come on until the walking dead season ends because that is the same time slot.

    Both, The Killing and Game of Thrones air at 9pm/ 8 CST on Sundays….I know this because I watch one and DVR the other
