NBC pulls Kidnapped from Saturday slot
Last Saturday, Kidnapped got only about 3.7 million viewers, making it the lowest-watched program on television that night. Only five episodes of Kidnapped have aired so far and there's no word from NBC on whether it will even play out the rest of the 'season'. Starting this Saturday, reruns of Law & Order: Criminal Intent will play instead of Kidnapped.
It's unfortunate that this has happened because the show really is quite good. The writing is strong and the acting is spectacular (plus, Jeremy Sisto is super-steamy). It just had a terrible time slot (both Wednesday and Saturday) and NBC didn't give it a whole lot of love. Plus, it was one in a sea of new serials and I found that I just don't have the energy and/or attention span to follow more than one or two these shows at a time. I am pretty much tapped with Heroes and Lost.
