Peacock was planning to air "Most Outrageous Moments" on Fridays, but the skein will now air Tuesdays from 8-9 p.m. -- the timeslot that was to have been occupied for the next few weeks by "Joey."
Opening for "Moments" appeared after NBC execs decided to again pull "Joey" from the lineup following the skein's disastrous return this week in the new Tuesday slot. Just 4 million viewers tuned in, with the half-hour skein averaging a stunningly weak 1.4/4 among adults 18-49.
"Joey," which had been struggling on Thursdays, will now return to Hiatusville and likely won't be back until summer, when NBC might opt to burn off the remaining originals. Net still hasn't confirmed "Joey's" cancellation, but the writing has been on the wall for some time now.
Meanwhile, "American Idol" results. I'm not enough of a masochist to sit through the results show, but I'm not entirely shocked at who went home. Kinnik and Peter Brady were easy calls, while Gedeon fell victim to Nikko Smith Disease (not a lot of pre-semis screentime and performances that were consistently in the middle of the pack, which always makes people forget to vote for you). And Ayla? Well, she was pretty mediocre this week, whereas Melissa looked so desperate to keep going that she may have gotten sympathy votes. Weep not for Ayla; now she doesn't have to give up her full ride basketball scholarship.
Oh, and when was the last time that Simon declared someone should pack their bags and they didn't go home? I'm sure it happened a few times in the first season, before he figured out the whims of American fans, but I can't remember it happening recently.
