Rejuvenated by Move to Wednesday, ‘Life’ Gets Picked Up

Nov 7, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Life goes on for “Life.”
NBC has ordered a full season of its low-rated drama, which recently moved to Wednesday nights. The series struggled to find an audience on Friday nights earlier this season, but saw its Nielsen numbers shoot up considerably—33%, to be exact—when the Peacock shifted it to 9 p.m. Wednesdays this week.
On the downside, “Life” attracted fewer viewers than the show it replaced, “Deal or No Deal.”
Nonetheless, NBC has decided to be patient with the Universal Media Studios-produced “Life,” which has generated the best reviews of any new NBC series in two years.
As for NBC’s other new fall shows, the network has ordered full seasons of “Knight Rider” and “Kath and Kim.” It has yet to make a decision regarding freshmen “My Own Worst Enemy” and “Crusoe” or sophomore hour “Lipstick Jungle.”


  1. Excellent, excellent excellent decision.
    Although, like many viewers, I like The Mentalist, Life is a really superior show. I love the fact that NBC is willing to let this show develop its audience.
    If only CBS had had the vision to do the same for Moonlight (I guess I’m beatig a dead horse, but I just have to rub it in).

  2. Great news!! This is a terrific new spin on the cops show format.
    Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers) is tremendous.
    The themes: incarceration, revenge, zen, fruit as a food obsession, patience, brotherhood, lusting after your ex-wife.
    Please try it for 2 episodes. Thanks.
