HBO to Air ‘Six Feet Under’ on Mondays

Feb 25, 2005  •  Post A Comment

HBO plans to air the final season of “Six Feet Under” on Monday nights, starting in June. The move is a test to see if the premium network can put its originals on a night other than Sunday. In June the Lisa Kudrow comedy “The Comeback” and the second season of “Entourage” will air on Sunday, HBO’s traditional night for premiering originals.

HBO said a smaller portion of its viewers are watching its shows during their premiere run but are instead watching reruns or using the HBO On Demand service. HBO downplayed the notion that it is moving programming to Monday to avoid competition with ABC’s blockbuster “Desperate Housewives.” “Comeback” and “Entourage” as well as the new season of “Deadwood” will run from 9-10 p.m. HBO does not plan to air originals on Monday night during the fall, when “Monday Night Football” is broadcast.
