Hannibal Moved to Saturday Nights

Starting this week, NBC has announced that it will be banishing Hannibal (and, for those still watching, Aquarius) to Saturday nights. The shows will finish out their summer runs in the equivalent of television hell (as everyone knows that Friday night is television purgatory). The move isn't particularly surprising in the case of Hannibal, which NBC cancelled earlier this summer. But, considering the network has renewed Aquarius (despite the show flopping with critics and audiences alike), moving that series is a bit odd (although, to be fair, its whole season is available for streaming online already). Both will be replaced on Thursday nights with Dateline Thursday Mysteries.

Rather than posting reviews on Sunday mornings, I'll put them up Sunday evenings (since even I like to have a bit of a weekend). So, look for this week's review on Sunday evening.
