Networks Re-Tool For Mid-Season
Following a semi-disastrous Fall television season with few new shows catching on, the networks are doing their usual mid-season shuffle in an attempt to get things back on track. ABC will be introducing a new comedy and will keep "Karen Sisco" but move it to a new time slot. CBS will replace cancelled "Brotherhood of Poland, N.H." with "48 Hours" at 10 PM on Wednesdays and will launch a fourth CSI in Fall 2004. NBC is hyping its Donald Trump reality series "The Apprentice" which will debut Thursday, January 8 at 8:30 PM which will move "Ed" to Fridays at 9 PM bumping "Miss Match" until late in the season. FOX is launching four new series, "Cracking Up," The Ortegas," Still Life" and Wonder Falls" along with several new reality shows.
