Almost Human Delayed

Only 13 days

By Robert T. Trate     October 22, 2013

Almost Human has been canceled !
Without a production reason causing it’s delay, it looks as if football might be the reason for Almost Human getting pushed back nearly two weeks. Fox has announced the new sci-fi series by J.J. Abrams will now premiere on November 17th, instead of November 4th. Fox plans on rolling it out over consecutive nights. Which will include a Sunday premiere following an NFL doubleheader.

Almost Human, which had been scheduled to move into the Bones slot on Mondays starting Nov. 4, will now debut at 8 p.m. ET Sunday, Nov. 17. It will likely have a sizable lead-in that night, as FOX has an afternoon NFL doubleheader that will most likely run over into primetime. The show, a futuristic crime drama starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy, will then make its time-period debut at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 18, with Sleepy Hollow staying put at 9 p.m.”.

Fox seems to have this problem every football season. The shows that genre and animation fans want to watch get lost in the shuffle of all mighty football. By this point you would think Fox would have a better game plan involved in the launching of new television shows.

 Here's how FOX will screw this up:

During the lead-in football games, they will advertise it once every commercial break, and during the game the commentators will mention it with scrolls and animations on the screen. After the (approximate) 752,000 promos for the show during two football games, NO ONE will want to stick around and watch it because they'll be completely sick of it by then.

HEY HEY HEYYY!! Robert. Get over it, it is FOOTBALL. And yeah it is all mighty. Deal with it.

Some of us actually like football. Put the show on Tues or something so it can dominate that day.

Besisdes, no one really watches live TV any more, unless it is football. That is why we have On Demand, DVR and torrent sites. Get with the times man. I stack up all my shows and watch them commercial free in one night. Lot more efficent that way.

Geez. Can't believe you banged on football. Silly girlie man.

Bob I think your logic is screwed up. Football isn't the problem for the delay, it's the asset to use it as a lead in to the premier of the show for a larger audience.

Anyway I'm on the fence on this show even with Urban as the lead.

Make an attempt at not only being a genre nerd, but a sport's nerd as well. It leads to more sexual favors from the opposite sex. Just sayin'...

Gee whiz, this does not sound like Ghost in the Shell or anything, right? ROFL What the fuck ever happened to the live action version of GITS: Stand Alone Complex Dreamworks was supposed to make? WHERE IS IT?

I don't give a crap about football.  I agree they should have a better plan to roll out this tv series which has a shot for getting my interest which it has not yet.  Lots of good new shows on tv this year for some unknown reason. But they better work on Shield for using their catalog of characters from the Marvel U.
