I know that a lot of fans are pretty bummed about this move and I am one of them. It’s been said that Friday nights is the “death night” for TV shows or pretty much where shows go to die (canceled). I really hope that’s not what FOX will end up doing to Fringe. Here’s an official press release from FOX’s Network President:
“As for the decision to bump Fringe to Fridays, “Fringe has a very particular, loyal audience,” Reilly said. With the show picking up almost half of its viewrship via DVR, he doesn’t expect the sci-fi series to take a big ratings hit in moving to Fridays where it will be paired with solid reality performer Kitchen Nightmares. “If (Fringe) could stay near the current levels, we’ll get a big trade-up on Friday and will solve our problem there.” – Kevin Reilly (FOX Network President)
