I'm already taping stuff on my three VCRs, and watching, alternately, Survivor and Hell's Kitchen. I've already had to relegate ANTM to Saturday at 10 on Star channel.

    I believe that I may be just a little too fond of television .
    Wait, Rattus, this may still work in your rotation! I think Hell's Kitchen is going to go down to an hour show and be between 9-10 PM and then Human Target will be on between 8-9 PM on Fox. So you could alternate between Survivor and Human Target.

    There is a lot of competition in that time slot it looks like. Along with ANTM and Survivor, JJ Abrams' new show Undercovers is on then which probably draws a similar audience as Human Target. Maybe it would have been better to leave it on Fridays. Florimel made an excellent point that a lot of shows do well on Fridays and stay on the air for years.

    Oh well, by this time next week, Fox will have probably moved the show, again, anyway.

    Oh right. Human Target is on Fox. D'oh! I should have realized that, that being the case, Hell's Kitchen was going to be shortened. I swear, the first month or two of the new season just confounds me every year. Not until they've culled the weak from the herd and I've determined what I deem to be unwatchable can I settle down to a nice routine with the television, a pair of sheepskin slippers and a G&T. And then, of course, the networks determine what they deem to be unwatchable (usually something I've found to be delightful), and the whole panicky routine of what do I watch, what do I tape recommences.

    Re: Human Target

    Count me in with those who wish it wasn't changing time slots. It fit perfectly into my Friday night slot with no competition at all. I'd have Human Target at 7, The Good Guys at 8, and Blue Bloods at 9. Too much juggling and recording on Wednesdays.

    Re: Human Target

    Thanks for the information. I was confused when I went to watch it on PVR and to my surprise it was the House rerun. I'm with lots of you though; when did Wednesday night become the busiest one of them all?!

    Re: Human Target

    The season premiere of Human Target is finally on tonight at 8 PM EST on Fox. I heard that the JJ Abrams show, Undercovers, that was in the same time slot on NBC has been cancelled which is a bummer for fans of that show but hopefully some of them will check out Human Target since it has a similar genre. Here's a little article I just found online about the show:

    Human Target Season Two Premiere on Fox Tonight

    The Human Target season two premiere is finally here on Fox. It took awhile to happen, especially when the season premiere was delayed due to the Fox scheduling for fall. The problems began when Fox decided that they wanted to give Lone Star an early premiere and postponed the release of both Lie to Me and Human Target as a result. When Lone Star crashed and burned after just two episodes, Fox canceled it, and then moved up the premiere of Lie to Me into its time slot the following week. Having no mid-season show left to premiere, Fox then decided to hold back Human Target.

    The first episode will begin with Chance and Guererro trying to come up with a plan to rescue Winston, who was kidnapped during the first season finale. It will also serve as the introduction of two new characters that could become permanent to the show, including someone who might serve as a benefactor to the team and a woman who wants to model herself after the way Guererro does things. It's definitely an attempt to increase the number of female characters on the show, and it might not be such a bad thing if they want to bring in more viewers this season.

    For those who haven't seen the show yet, Human Target got its start as a spring replacement show for Fox in 2010. The show debuted on Jan. 17, and became a pretty nice success for the network. Ratings for Human Target were never spectacular when compared to the best on television, but they were good enough to warrant a second season, and were high in the much-sought-after demographic of 18-49-year-old viewers. Now they are upping the sex appeal, giving the show a lot of promotion, and providing it with a nice time slot on Wednesday nights that could all lead to it finding future success.

    The series surrounds lead character Christopher Chance (played by Mark Valley), a man with unique skills who is hired on as a security expert. You could view him as a bodyguard with special skills, and a man who tries to take the target off of his employers and place it on himself. He basically becomes the "human target" and works with the help of partner Winston (played by Chi McBride) and a hired investigator named Guerrero (played by Jackie Earle Haley). It is an action show that provides quite a bit of "bang" each week, and also provides a unique premise not found on any other shows right now.

    Okay, I like Mark Valley, but when this woman searches 6 months to hire him, then doesn't listen to him when he tells her to stay at the party and not go, can you say stupid?

    Re: Human Target

    So glad the show is back! I LOVE Indira Varma, so I'm thrilled to see her on TV. She was on two of my very favorite shows ever - Torchwood and Rome.

    Not sure about the new girl - she may grow on me. Maybe not. I sort of like just the closed group of the three guys who've known each other so long they can speak in shorthand. I'm not sure how these new additions will affect that.

    That's exactly how I feel. It was good last night to have it back on the air, but I'm not sold, yet, on the newest additions.

    Re: Human Target

    Just wanted to pass along the info. that the episodes of Human Target that were set to air on Wednesday that were preempted by coverage of the Arizona Memorial Service will air tonight from 8-10 PM EST. And below is what is, as of now, the schedule for the remaining episodes. Apparently the ratings for the show are somewhat borderline and there is speculation that Fox may have decided to burn off the remaining episodes by showing them back to back as they have been doing the past couple of weeks and that they are moving the show around in upcoming weeks because of that.

    Just wanted to let everyone know so that there aren't unrealistic expectations about the show being renewed for a third season - even an abbreviated one as these two seasons have been. Thanks again, though, to everyone who has supported the show. I've really enjoyed the episodes this season and Indira Varma is very talented - I don't think I've seen her anything before. Even though it was awkward introducing the new characters at first the show seems to be adjusting to it and there was an episode a few weeks ago that I thought jelled amazingly well (I meant to post about that but forgot to ).

    The 'Human Target' Scheduling Carousel Continues

    As if Human Target fans didn't have enough with the show's pre-second season schedule version of Musical Chairs, the show is once again getting bounced around the FOX calendar.

    Last night's two-hour event ("Imbroglio/Cool Hand Guerrero"), which was preempted for coverage of the Presidential speech regarding the tragedy in Arizona, will now air tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 14) from 8-10 PM ET/PT.

    After that, Target gets the shaft in favor of American Idol: to expand the singing contest's showing on Jan. 26, the network will preempt Target's next new episode, "Kill Bob." That episode then moves to Monday, Jan. 31 at 8 PM ET/PT, in itself preempting House.

    The show returns to its normal slot Wednesday, Feb. 2 with another new episode, however, meaning that fans will actually get two new episodes of Human Target in three days - one on Monday and one on Wednesday.

    The Target season finale is still scheduled to air on Feb. 9 at its regular time. For now, anyway.
