After three seasons on Monday nights, CBS will be moving their hit series HAWAII 5-0 to Friday nights.
At today’s CBS Summer TCA press tour, CBS Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves offered his reasoning for the move.
“We didn’t have a lot of space for new 10 o’clock dramas,” says Moonves. “We saw HOSTAGES and fell in love with it. We said ‘that’s going to be very powerful.’ In addition, HAWAII 5-0 skews a little bit older. So we figured with BLUE BLOODS doing extremely well, Friday night has become more a total viewer show than a demo night, per se. And so it became pretty self‑evident that that would be a good move and putting HOSTAGES there at Monday at 10:00 would be a good move, and we’ll see if that was good in a few months.”
