In a number of larger and middle markets in the United States, MyNetworkTV , which started as a general network in meant for primetime clearance, but due to the failure of its original programming schedule, eventually became a programming service carrying nightly rerun blocks of syndicated programming from broadcast networks and cable channels, has seen its timeslot downgraded to the graveyard slot.

Generally, this is done as the stations of MyNetworkTV have become part of duopolies with major network affiliate stations and even those owned by its parent company, Fox Television Stations and those stations have used the MyNetworkTV affiliates to carry extended primetime local newscasts and local sports which provide steadier ratings and revenue than MyNetworkTV's non-original schedule.

The Big Three television networks in the United States all offer regular programming in the overnight slot. Both ABC and CBS carry overnight newscasts with some repackaged content from the day's previous network news broadcasts, with an emphasis on sports scores from West Coast games that typically conclude after a.

ET and international financial markets with the ending of the Australasian and beginning of the European trading day, all of which takes place between and a. ET, while NBC which dropped its overnight news after an eight-year run in September replays the NBC News Now streaming news program Top Story with Tom Llamas previously occupied by a replay of the fourth hour of Today from to Each network also produces its early morning newscast at a.

ET with the exception of NBC's Early Today , which since , has started at a. ET, acting as a de facto overnight newscast in parlance so that it may be tape-delayed to air as a lead-in to local news.

The graveyard slots' lack of importance sometimes benefits programs; producers and program-makers can afford to take more risks, as there is less advertising revenue at stake.

For example, an unusual or niche program may find a chance for an audience in a graveyard slot a current day example is Adult Swim 's FishCenter Live , which features games projected onto the video image of an aquarium , or a formerly popular program that no longer merits an important time slot may be allowed to run in a graveyard slot instead of being removed from the schedule completely.

However, abusing this practice may lead to channel drift if the demoted programs were presented as channel stars at some time. From to in the United States, some cable networks such as Nickelodeon , the Discovery Channel and The Weather Channel aired educational programs during these hours as part of the Cable in the Classroom initiative, intended for educators to tape for later presentation to their students.

Japanese over-the-air stations broadcast late night anime almost exclusively, starting in the late night slot at p. In the UK, overnight is defined as The main BBC channels have never broadcast through the night - BBC One has simulcasted the BBC News Channel overnight with BBC Two 's only foray into continuous television being BBC Learning Zone.

From to , BBC One repeated recent programmes during this time period with in-vision signing as part of a strand called Sign Zone before simulcasting with BBC News in a simulcast between BBC One , UK feed and international feed of BBC News Channel for the second part.

Since then, the BBC News simulcast has generally begin between midnight and 1. BBC Two shows Sign Zone and repeats for the first part and the rest of the high is given over to "This is BBC Two" which broadcasts excerpt from forthcoming BBC Two programmes. Notable examples of digital channels are BBC Three and BBC Four , which stay on the air until 4.

and then close down, marked in schedules are This is BBC Three and This is BBC Four respectively. weekdays with Tipping Point following it and 6. Channel 4 shows repeats and films during the overnight hours, while Channel 5 airs Supercasino , some repeats and Teleshopping.

Most digital channels during this time either go off air or simulcast shopping channels, while some stay on the air. The 7. half-hour is traditionally the first primetime slot of the evening in the UK.

In , ITV began broadcasting a third weekly showing of its highly-rated soap opera, Coronation Street , in this slot on Friday evenings, adding to existing episodes in that slot on Mondays and Wednesdays.

As ITV's biggest rival, the BBC, broadcast its own biggest soap opera, EastEnders , in the same slot on Tuesdays and Thursdays, this created a situation where the 7.

With little chance of beating their biggest rival in the ratings, neither network would schedule valuable content in their "off" nights, creating a graveyard slot for that network by default, even though the slot itself was extremely valuable in across-the-board ratings terms.

ITV would often use the slot for regional programming, or consumer affairs shows not expected to rate highly, whilst BBC1 would often air repeats.

Only on rare occasions did either network break the unwritten agreement not to schedule one show against the other. During the s and s, the growth of streaming and catch-up TV services made this scheduling pattern less important, and while ITV would still only very rarely schedule Coronation Street against EastEnders , it began scheduling its second highest rating soap opera, Emmerdale , against EastEnders on some occasions for example, one-hour specials for major storylines.

In January , the status quo around the "ownership" of the 7. slot essentially came to an end, with ITV opting to move Coronation Street to 8. and Emmerdale to 7. The BBC typically continues to air EastEnders at 7.

Outside of the traditional overnight slots, various examples of graveyard slots in the United States exist. While the reasons vary, often these time periods are viewed with much lower interest from programmers as opposed to other periods of the day particularly prime time from Monday to Thursday nights.

Before the s, the noon hour was often viewed as a popular "lunch slot" where daytime shows such as Jeopardy! were popular with a larger-than-average audience that included both college and high school students and employees either returning home or eating at a restaurant on their lunch break, in addition to the traditional American daytime audience of stay-at-home housewives.

However as the s dawned, many network affiliates began introducing local midday newscasts, which resulted in the time slot becoming a "death slot".

Local news in this slot usually consists of stories from the morning newscast repeated with spare updating for newer details to such earlier items and stories that have happened since including local political meetings , business and consumer news segments including live stock market prices , farm reports in mainly rural markets, and community interest segments where organizations are highlighted in an interview setting, along with paid placement advertorial segments for businesses.

Stations that do not carry news in this slot usually air syndicated fare or an infomercial; in numerous cases, educational programs can be buried in this slot or any other daytime slot as a form of malicious compliance with the mandate for such programs. Mainly to accommodate affiliates in the Central and Mountain time zones that choose to air local news at noon in their respective markets, CBS still offers an option for affiliates to air The Young and the Restless at noon Eastern a.

Central , but actual participation in this varies by individual station. NBC also allowed this option for Days of Our Lives until September , when the soap moved to co-owned streaming service Peacock to accommodate the new afternoon newscast NBC News Daily. After the s ended, there were very few network programs that had survived for more than a year in the noon timeslot, including Ryan's Hope and Super Password.

However, there have been numerous network shows that have aired in the second half-hour of this timeslot; examples include The Young and the Restless whose first half-hour has dominated the timeslot since , Loving and its short-lived spinoff The City , Sunset Beach and Port Charles.

The latter two were canceled after a few years on the air. Since the mids, the p. timeslot on most NBC and ABC affiliates has been usually filled with local news and lifestyle programs. When the noon time slot became unfavorable in the late s, networks began doubling up airings of their noon shows at p.

However, this time slot had also quickly become unfavorable as many stations chose to preempt network offerings in favor of more lucrative syndicated programs during this time, including nationally syndicated talk shows hosted by Mike Douglas , Merv Griffin , Dinah Shore and Phil Donahue all of which were primarily entertainment-focused with the exception of Donahue's which focused on serious subject matters including politics and cultural issues.

As a result, the networks were faced with increasingly fewer affiliates airing network programs in this time slot and eventually abandoned this practice, with ABC canceling the soap opera Edge of Night at the end of and CBS ending production on Press Your Luck in the late summer of , though the two networks would continue to program occasional afterschool specials for children during the hour until the mids with ABC being the last Big Three network to end that practice as well as any moribund effort to program the hour in January During the s, a slew of newer nationally syndicated talk shows made their debut, with the most prominent example being The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Originally a locally based morning show in Chicago, Oprah made its debut as a nationally syndicated talk show in and soon came to dominate the time slot in many markets over the course of its year run. Since the s, the expansion of local television news has led to stations without major syndicated hits choosing to offer local news in this hour.

By , most networks' daytime programming had ended at p. ET, and many stations have begun offering up to three hours of local news, interrupted either by a syndicated program or the network news.

Perhaps the most infamous example of a graveyard slot, ironically, has been during prime time on Friday nights since the s. Before this decade, several television series during the late s and s and well into the early s had become widely popular among viewing audiences, and these programs—including Dallas and Falcon Crest on CBS and Miami Vice on NBC—became so popular that most programs that were scheduled against them were doomed to cancellation because of the competition, which marked the beginning of a phenomenon known as the "Friday night death slot.

Because of this trend, networks have since programmed inexpensive reality programming or news magazines on this night instead of scripted programs. Consequently, scripted programs that do end up airing on Friday night have often been moved there from more lucrative Monday-Thursday evening time slots due to poor performance, and this is often an indication that the series is facing cancellation, with its fate set in some cases either by extenuating circumstances or by certain goals for the producer or distributor in mind.

The former was the case in the season with the ABC family sitcom 8 Simple Rules , whose ratings declined following the death of lead actor and protagonist John Ritter , while the latter pertained to the Fox sitcom 'Til Death , which was kept alive on Friday nights well into the —10 season to garner enough episodes for an ultimately short-lived syndication deal.

Since , CBS is the only major network that continues to air a full line-up of first-run scripted programming on Fridays, and has been a strong performer on this night for the better part of the past three decades with a number of successful if older-skewing serials and police procedurals featuring veteran actors, with former Miami Vice lead actor Don Johnson in the titular role for Nash Bridges from to and former Magnum, P.

lead Tom Selleck playing the lead character in Blue Bloods since among the more prominent examples. Its former semi-sister network, The CW previously co-owned by CBS parent Paramount Global and Warner Bros. Discovery and their respective predecessors until Nexstar Media Group , its largest affiliate operator, bought a majority stake in the network from the former two conglomerates in also maintained a lineup of younger-skewing scripted fantasy and action dramas from to , with similar success.

In addition, a handful of cable channels have also had success with Friday night programming, with the most prominent being Disney Channel which since has aired a number of scripted sitcoms that appeal to a pre-teen audience including Wizards of Waverly Place , Phineas and Ferb , The Suite Life on Deck , Jessie and Girl Meets World , and has largely served as somewhat of a successor to sister network ABC's original TGIF lineup albeit with a younger audience in comparison.

Many cable networks, including Disney Channel as well as Hallmark Channel , also premiere original made-for-TV movies on this night several times per year as an attempt to keep potential movie-goers at home. Until the s, many popular series also aired on Saturdays, with more notable examples including Gunsmoke , Have Gun — Will Travel , All in the Family , The Mary Tyler Moore Show , The Bob Newhart Show and The Carol Burnett Show during the s and s on CBS; The Facts of Life , Hunter , Amen , , and The Golden Girls and its spin-offs most notably Empty Nest during the s and early s on NBC; and T.

Hooker , The Love Boat and Fantasy Island during the late s and s on ABC. Most networks maintained a full schedule, though the night was also often used for airing movies and select sporting events.

Many successful programs aired on Saturdays during the s as well including Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman , Early Edition and Walker, Texas Ranger on CBS; Sisters , The Pretender and Profiler on NBC; and Cops and America's Most Wanted on Fox.

Since then however, a similar situation to Friday nights emerged, with the same issue of fewer viewers available to watch television on Friday nights now extending to Saturday nights as well, although to a more pronounced degree.

For that reason, the mainstream U. networks have largely abandoned original programming on Saturday nights in favor of reruns, with only CBS maintaining a limited presence anchored by its newsmagazine 48 Hours.

ABC was the first of the Big Three networks to cease offering original first-run programming outside of newsmagazines and sports on Saturdays; the network had lost ground on that night to NBC, CBS and later Fox after The Love Boat ended in with only the —96 police procedural dramedy The Commish lasting more than three seasons on that night in the time since , and largely failed in subsequent years to buoy its standing against its Saturday competition such as with its move of stalwarts Who's the Boss?

and Growing Pains from their previous Tuesday and Wednesday slots in September , with both later being joined by fellow veteran and Friday tentpole Perfect Strangers to help form the TGIF -inspired sitcom block I Love Saturday Night , which only lasted for five weeks in February ; after experiencing sharp ratings declines following their move to Saturdays, Boss and Pains ended after that season while Strangers got an abbreviated eighth season, burned off in the Summer of , to properly close out the series.

Its last attempt was in the —99 season with a lineup initially consisting of America's Funniest Home Videos which had seen its ratings drop following the departure and replacement of original host Bob Saget and its displacement from its original Sunday slot to make room for The Wonderful World of Disney the previous season , a revival of Fantasy Island and Cupid ; neither survived past that season with AFV being relegated to occasional specials before it was revived as a regular series in , prompting ABC to give up and run movies in the slot instead starting with the — season.

The last major efforts by the Big Three networks to program Saturday nights ended in , when CBS canceled Walker, Texas Ranger and NBC—which ended its primetime scripted programming efforts on that night following the cancellations of The Pretender and Profiler —failed with the original incarnation of the XFL.

CBS, however, continued to offer first-run shows on Saturdays until the —04 season when crime dramas Hack and The District ended their runs due to declining viewership before switching to a lineup consisting of mainly crime drama reruns and 48 Hours which was transitioning to a true crime documentary format the following season —05 , becoming the last legacy broadcast network to give up on any meaningful efforts to program the Saturday primetime slot; it would, however, later air the Canadian—French co-production Ransom on that night during the middle of the television season between and , and the final episodes of each week of the American version of Love Island which aired its episodes over multiple nights in a similar manner to fellow reality series Big Brother , which also offered first-run Saturday episodes from to run on Saturdays during its second season in Fox continued to air Cops and America's Most Wanted on Saturday nights until both programs ended their network runs between and with Cops moving to Spike now Paramount Network and America's Most Wanted moving to Lifetime , where it remained until its cancellation in ; Fox would revive the latter series in In recent years, a new trend has emerged where a show that is considered to be a ratings failure or is already canceled is moved to Saturday nights to finish airing its original episodes , with the CBS miniseries Harper's Island in —09, NBC's The Firm in —12, and ABC's The Alec Baldwin Show and CBS's Million Dollar Mile in —19 being some of the most notable examples.

Otherwise, the night is used by the networks to air encore presentations of their weekday primetime series' most recent episode, or in ABC's case until the —16 season and more sporadically thereafter occasional broadcasts of more recent theatrical movies, as well as to air sports programming including college football e.

Local stations also use the night to carry specialized local news programs, including documentaries and political debates, where it would otherwise air their affiliate network's encore repeats. Despite being a known graveyard time period, some channels have gained or maintained success on Saturday nights.

Perhaps and arguably the most famous example has been NBC's late night sketch comedy variety program Saturday Night Live , which has been a staple of that network and also that of the American pop culture conscience since its debut, and has gone on to launch the careers of dozens of comedians and other actors; Fox would provide a formidable competitor to SNL in with Mad TV , a taped satirical sketch program that lasted for 14 seasons until its initial cancellation in and was that network's only successful late-night offering.

Other notable exceptions have included Nickelodeon , which successfully aired a Saturday evening lineup of first-run programs aimed at pre-teens and teenagers—originally branded as SNICK for its first 12 years, and then as TEENick [Saturday Night] from to —from August to November including such popular series as Clarissa Explains It All , All That , Are You Afraid of the Dark?

HBO began running all of its movie premieres exclusively on Saturdays in June , marketing the promise of "a new movie every Saturday night" throughout the year; the frequency of movie premieres in the designated slot substantially declined in the early s largely due to most of HBO's distribution partners outside of sister studio Warner Bros.

HBO, which began airing boxing events exclusively on that night in , ended its boxing telecasts in ; Showtime, which continued to air some of its boxing and post MMA events on Friday nights, shut down its sports division amid cutbacks instituted by parent Paramount Global in To this day, many television stations in the United States have often filled their weekend late night slots with off-network syndicated reruns of primetime drama series, long-form interview programs including Entertainers with Byron Allen and In Depth with Graham Bensinger , movie showcases including horror-themed Svengoolie and B-movie showcase Off Beat Cinema , both staples of the Saturday late-night slot , and weekend editions of infotainment news programs often with curated segments repackaged from earlier in the week or, in the case of Entertainment Tonight , special retrospect editions focused on a single topic.

Co-distributors Sony Pictures Television and CBS Media Ventures , for instance, offer a selection of episodes from the previous season's runs of their popular weekday game shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! to air on weekends most commonly in the Saturday early fringe slot , usually airing in their traditional weekday slots.

Historically, music and variety shows such as Hee Haw , The Lawrence Welk Show , Don Kirshner's Rock Concert , Solid Gold , Showtime at the Apollo and Soul Train , as well as weekly competition programs including American Gladiators and Star Search , also often filled weekend late night time slots in many cases either complementing or even competing against Saturday Night Live.

Because people generally stay out later on Friday and Saturday nights than other nights of the week, people also tend to sleep in longer on weekend mornings.

CBS, however, continued to offer first-run shows on Saturdays until the —04 season when crime dramas Hack and The District ended their runs due to declining viewership before switching to a lineup consisting of mainly crime drama reruns and 48 Hours which was transitioning to a true crime documentary format the following season —05 , becoming the last legacy broadcast network to give up on any meaningful efforts to program the Saturday primetime slot; it would, however, later air the Canadian—French co-production Ransom on that night during the middle of the television season between and , and the final episodes of each week of the American version of Love Island which aired its episodes over multiple nights in a similar manner to fellow reality series Big Brother , which also offered first-run Saturday episodes from to run on Saturdays during its second season in Fox continued to air Cops and America's Most Wanted on Saturday nights until both programs ended their network runs between and with Cops moving to Spike now Paramount Network and America's Most Wanted moving to Lifetime , where it remained until its cancellation in ; Fox would revive the latter series in In recent years, a new trend has emerged where a show that is considered to be a ratings failure or is already canceled is moved to Saturday nights to finish airing its original episodes , with the CBS miniseries Harper's Island in —09, NBC's The Firm in —12, and ABC's The Alec Baldwin Show and CBS's Million Dollar Mile in —19 being some of the most notable examples.

Otherwise, the night is used by the networks to air encore presentations of their weekday primetime series' most recent episode, or in ABC's case until the —16 season and more sporadically thereafter occasional broadcasts of more recent theatrical movies, as well as to air sports programming including college football e.

Local stations also use the night to carry specialized local news programs, including documentaries and political debates, where it would otherwise air their affiliate network's encore repeats. Despite being a known graveyard time period, some channels have gained or maintained success on Saturday nights.

Perhaps and arguably the most famous example has been NBC's late night sketch comedy variety program Saturday Night Live , which has been a staple of that network and also that of the American pop culture conscience since its debut, and has gone on to launch the careers of dozens of comedians and other actors; Fox would provide a formidable competitor to SNL in with Mad TV , a taped satirical sketch program that lasted for 14 seasons until its initial cancellation in and was that network's only successful late-night offering.

Other notable exceptions have included Nickelodeon , which successfully aired a Saturday evening lineup of first-run programs aimed at pre-teens and teenagers—originally branded as SNICK for its first 12 years, and then as TEENick [Saturday Night] from to —from August to November including such popular series as Clarissa Explains It All , All That , Are You Afraid of the Dark?

HBO began running all of its movie premieres exclusively on Saturdays in June , marketing the promise of "a new movie every Saturday night" throughout the year; the frequency of movie premieres in the designated slot substantially declined in the early s largely due to most of HBO's distribution partners outside of sister studio Warner Bros.

HBO, which began airing boxing events exclusively on that night in , ended its boxing telecasts in ; Showtime, which continued to air some of its boxing and post MMA events on Friday nights, shut down its sports division amid cutbacks instituted by parent Paramount Global in To this day, many television stations in the United States have often filled their weekend late night slots with off-network syndicated reruns of primetime drama series, long-form interview programs including Entertainers with Byron Allen and In Depth with Graham Bensinger , movie showcases including horror-themed Svengoolie and B-movie showcase Off Beat Cinema , both staples of the Saturday late-night slot , and weekend editions of infotainment news programs often with curated segments repackaged from earlier in the week or, in the case of Entertainment Tonight , special retrospect editions focused on a single topic.

Co-distributors Sony Pictures Television and CBS Media Ventures , for instance, offer a selection of episodes from the previous season's runs of their popular weekday game shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!

to air on weekends most commonly in the Saturday early fringe slot , usually airing in their traditional weekday slots. Historically, music and variety shows such as Hee Haw , The Lawrence Welk Show , Don Kirshner's Rock Concert , Solid Gold , Showtime at the Apollo and Soul Train , as well as weekly competition programs including American Gladiators and Star Search , also often filled weekend late night time slots in many cases either complementing or even competing against Saturday Night Live.

Because people generally stay out later on Friday and Saturday nights than other nights of the week, people also tend to sleep in longer on weekend mornings. The weekend morning — a. time slot is most commonly used by stations to air public affairs and on Sundays televangelism programs, although some air local morning newscasts within the time period.

Nationally syndicated specialty news programs, including Matter of Fact hosted by former NBC News and CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien and mandated to air on stations owned by its production company, Hearst Television and Full Measure hosted by former CBS News anchor Sharyl Attkisson and mandated to air on stations owned by its production company, Sinclair Broadcast Group , also air during weekend morning timeslots in many markets, often complementing their affiliate networks' and local stations' morning news programs and Sunday morning talk shows.

As has been the case since the beginning of television, the major networks have also generally programmed weekend afternoons with sporting events. That being the case, particularly when no sporting events are airing either from the networks or from syndicated distributors such as Raycom Sports , there is very little incentive to watch television after news and educational programs on Saturday mornings or political talk shows on Sunday mornings end, especially when a local team—particularly an NFL or college football team of either local or regional interest—is airing on one station, prompting other stations to outright refuse to put on competitive programming.

Most stations in this situation air infomercials, movies, or little-watched syndicated fare in this slot, and often use this time period to air educational and public affairs programming mandated either by station groups or federal broadcast regulations, as well as regional lifestyle programs such as Texas Country Reporter , which has been a weekend staple on most television stations serving the U.

state of Texas since the s. Prior to , when it was not carrying content from sister network ESPN , ABC aired reality programming reruns in the late afternoon slot such as Million Dollar Mind Game.

Because of overruns from Sunday afternoon National Football League NFL games, Fox in the earlier slot and, to a lesser extent, CBS in the latter slot have had difficulty launching shows in these Sunday evening time slots.

To handle overruns, Fox and CBS both use different strategies to handle prime time programming, with other networks attempting various means of counterprogramming to meet parity on the night:.

Programs such as the Academy Awards on ABC since , the Super Bowl and the Olympic Games on NBC at least partially since have been known to draw so many viewers that almost all efforts to counterprogram against them have failed.

As such, broadcasters have traditionally countered these events with either reruns or movies. In past years, seasonal airings of popular classic films such as Gone with the Wind , The Wizard of Oz and The Ten Commandments have also been known to draw sizable audiences.

The Super Bowl has historically attracted more unusual fare such as Animal Planet 's Puppy Bowl , a football-themed special featuring puppies at play , [17] with most aiming to counter the halftime show to emulate Fox's success with its live In Living Color special in However, as all four major commercial networks now have some tie to the National Football League's television deals current through Super Bowl LXVIII in , with ABC's addition to the rotation under the eleven-year contract agreements signed in also granting all four networks alternating rights to the championship [18] , major networks have aired little to no new original programming on the night of the Super Bowl under an unsaid gentleman's agreement.

On occasion, a regularly scheduled program may have this kind of dominant drawing power. Notable examples have included NBC's Thursday primetime schedule in the s and s that featured The Cosby Show , Seinfeld and ER , and American Idol during its original run's peak on Fox from the mids to the early s simultaneous with the peak of reality television in the U.

during that period — each of which was dubbed a "Death Star" by the other networks because of their prolonged dominance in the ratings, consistently ranking among the most watched broadcasts in U.

television history. Many programs that competed against such shows often either flopped or in the case of an existing series saw their ratings decline significantly to the brink of cancellation. In Australia and New Zealand, the overnight daypart runs from midnight until a. This slot is generally filled by American sitcoms and dramas that failed in their home market but are required to air in some form to justify the network's investment, or archived content, along with teleshopping programmes, and other American programs mainly lower-tier syndicated newsmagazines, and delayed broadcasts of breakfast television programmes.

In Canada , federal regulations require television channels and radio stations to carry a certain percentage of programs that are produced in Canada or have some contribution by Canadians.

It is common for most privately owned television channels to air the bulk of their mandatory Canadian content in such graveyard slots especially weekday mornings and Saturday nights , ensuring they can meet their required percentages of Canadian programming while leaving room for more popular foreign programming in other time periods.

For over-the-air terrestrial stations , the overnight hours are generally not subject to Canadian content requirements, allowing some opportunity for niche or experimental programming during those hours, although most commonly infomercials air instead. Canadian radio stations have similar practices regarding broadcasts of Canadian music, known pejoratively as the " beaver hour ".

For the most part in modern times however, Canadian content requirements are filled easily by television stations throughout the week through local newscasts and magazine programming, along with licensed versions of American programs such as the now-defunct ET Canada.

Slot TV Showtime - TV Schedule · Tue. 19 · Wed. 20 · Thu. 21 · Fri. 22 · Sat. 23 · Sun. 24 · Mon. 25 Missing It implies that a television program in the United States scheduled on Friday evenings (typically, between and p.m. ET) is likely to be canceled. The The weekend morning – a.m. time slot is most commonly used by stations to air public affairs and (on Sundays) televangelism programs, although some air

Since the s, the expansion of local television news has led to stations without major syndicated hits choosing to offer local news in this hour. By , most networks' daytime programming had ended at p. ET, and many stations have begun offering up to three hours of local news, interrupted either by a syndicated program or the network news.

Perhaps the most infamous example of a graveyard slot, ironically, has been during prime time on Friday nights since the s.

Before this decade, several television series during the late s and s and well into the early s had become widely popular among viewing audiences, and these programs—including Dallas and Falcon Crest on CBS and Miami Vice on NBC—became so popular that most programs that were scheduled against them were doomed to cancellation because of the competition, which marked the beginning of a phenomenon known as the "Friday night death slot.

Because of this trend, networks have since programmed inexpensive reality programming or news magazines on this night instead of scripted programs.

Consequently, scripted programs that do end up airing on Friday night have often been moved there from more lucrative Monday-Thursday evening time slots due to poor performance, and this is often an indication that the series is facing cancellation, with its fate set in some cases either by extenuating circumstances or by certain goals for the producer or distributor in mind.

The former was the case in the season with the ABC family sitcom 8 Simple Rules , whose ratings declined following the death of lead actor and protagonist John Ritter , while the latter pertained to the Fox sitcom 'Til Death , which was kept alive on Friday nights well into the —10 season to garner enough episodes for an ultimately short-lived syndication deal.

Since , CBS is the only major network that continues to air a full line-up of first-run scripted programming on Fridays, and has been a strong performer on this night for the better part of the past three decades with a number of successful if older-skewing serials and police procedurals featuring veteran actors, with former Miami Vice lead actor Don Johnson in the titular role for Nash Bridges from to and former Magnum, P.

lead Tom Selleck playing the lead character in Blue Bloods since among the more prominent examples. Its former semi-sister network, The CW previously co-owned by CBS parent Paramount Global and Warner Bros. Discovery and their respective predecessors until Nexstar Media Group , its largest affiliate operator, bought a majority stake in the network from the former two conglomerates in also maintained a lineup of younger-skewing scripted fantasy and action dramas from to , with similar success.

In addition, a handful of cable channels have also had success with Friday night programming, with the most prominent being Disney Channel which since has aired a number of scripted sitcoms that appeal to a pre-teen audience including Wizards of Waverly Place , Phineas and Ferb , The Suite Life on Deck , Jessie and Girl Meets World , and has largely served as somewhat of a successor to sister network ABC's original TGIF lineup albeit with a younger audience in comparison.

Many cable networks, including Disney Channel as well as Hallmark Channel , also premiere original made-for-TV movies on this night several times per year as an attempt to keep potential movie-goers at home.

Until the s, many popular series also aired on Saturdays, with more notable examples including Gunsmoke , Have Gun — Will Travel , All in the Family , The Mary Tyler Moore Show , The Bob Newhart Show and The Carol Burnett Show during the s and s on CBS; The Facts of Life , Hunter , Amen , , and The Golden Girls and its spin-offs most notably Empty Nest during the s and early s on NBC; and T.

Hooker , The Love Boat and Fantasy Island during the late s and s on ABC. Most networks maintained a full schedule, though the night was also often used for airing movies and select sporting events. Many successful programs aired on Saturdays during the s as well including Dr.

Quinn, Medicine Woman , Early Edition and Walker, Texas Ranger on CBS; Sisters , The Pretender and Profiler on NBC; and Cops and America's Most Wanted on Fox. Since then however, a similar situation to Friday nights emerged, with the same issue of fewer viewers available to watch television on Friday nights now extending to Saturday nights as well, although to a more pronounced degree.

For that reason, the mainstream U. networks have largely abandoned original programming on Saturday nights in favor of reruns, with only CBS maintaining a limited presence anchored by its newsmagazine 48 Hours. ABC was the first of the Big Three networks to cease offering original first-run programming outside of newsmagazines and sports on Saturdays; the network had lost ground on that night to NBC, CBS and later Fox after The Love Boat ended in with only the —96 police procedural dramedy The Commish lasting more than three seasons on that night in the time since , and largely failed in subsequent years to buoy its standing against its Saturday competition such as with its move of stalwarts Who's the Boss?

and Growing Pains from their previous Tuesday and Wednesday slots in September , with both later being joined by fellow veteran and Friday tentpole Perfect Strangers to help form the TGIF -inspired sitcom block I Love Saturday Night , which only lasted for five weeks in February ; after experiencing sharp ratings declines following their move to Saturdays, Boss and Pains ended after that season while Strangers got an abbreviated eighth season, burned off in the Summer of , to properly close out the series.

Its last attempt was in the —99 season with a lineup initially consisting of America's Funniest Home Videos which had seen its ratings drop following the departure and replacement of original host Bob Saget and its displacement from its original Sunday slot to make room for The Wonderful World of Disney the previous season , a revival of Fantasy Island and Cupid ; neither survived past that season with AFV being relegated to occasional specials before it was revived as a regular series in , prompting ABC to give up and run movies in the slot instead starting with the — season.
