AngelAngel’s time slot gets more competitive
Tuesday 30 September 2003
’The O.C.,’ ’Bernie Mac’ on the Move at FOX (Monday, September 29 04 :53 PM)
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - One of the most competitive hours in primetime television just got even tougher.
In a shake-up of its post-World Series schedule, FOX announced Monday (Sept. 29) that it will move its summertime hit "The O.C." into the 9 p.m. ET Wednesday spot when it returns in late October. "The Bernie Mac Show" is clearing out of the timeslot and moving to Sunday nights.
The shuffle leaves "The Ortegas," a talk-show/sitcom hybrid that was reportedly being reworked after the pilot was shot, without a home for the time being. FOX, which paid a hefty price for picking the show up after NBC passed on it, says it will try to find a home for it later in the season.
