NBC changing 'LAX' flight, sends 'Hawaii' to standby

17 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NBC will reroute the airport drama LAX from Monday to Wednesday in time for sweeps month, making room for a new unscripted series, The $25 Million Dollar Hoax. Beginning Oct. 27, LAX will air Wednesdays at 8 p.m., replacing fellow rookie series Hawaii, which NBC has put on hiatus. LAX, which stars Heather Locklear and Blair Underwood, has not made much headway against tough competition from ABC's Monday Night Football and CBS' CSI: Miami in its three weeks on the air. Stepping into LAX's Monday 10 p.m. slot is Hoax, a three-episode prank showcase in which a fake lottery winner sets out to deceive family and friends. Hoax, which begins Nov. 8, is based on a British format from Maverick that will be produced by Reveille and Hallock Healey Entertainment. »

Rookies 'Lost,' 'CSI: NY' sparkle

24 September 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A visit from Dr. Phil and the highly anticipated premiere of CSI: NY sent CBS to the top of the Nielsen charts Wednesday, while ABC notched its best drama series premiere in nine years with the 8 p.m. bow of J.J. Abrams' Lost. NBC's Law & Order held up well against the CSI: NY launch, but the same could not be said of NBC's Hawaii, which was beaten in the adults 18-49 demo in the 8 p.m. hour not only by the heavily promoted Lost but also by the WB Network's fourth-season opener of Smallville. ABC's fortunes fell sharply at 9 p.m., however, with a weak turnout for the two-hour premiere of The Bachelor. The WB also saw its numbers take a dive at 9 p.m. with the debut of drama The Mountain. With all the high-powered premieres, UPN saw a lackluster turnout for the return of America's Next Top Model and 9 p.m. premiere of Veronica Mars. »

NBC's 'Pride' bow pounces; FNC bounces

8 September 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The widespread power outages in Florida caused by Hurricane Frances didn't spare Nielsen Media Research's facilities in the Sunshine State, leading to a delay in the national weekly rating data for the week of Aug. 30. The final weekly numbers, initially scheduled for release Wednesday, are now expected today. The week, which was disjointed by the Big Three's coverage of the Republican National Convention, marked the debut of two NBC series, Father of the Pride and Hawaii, and the season premieres of several returning NBC shows as part of the network's post-Olympics fall rollout. »

NBC's 'Hawaii' improves numbers Monday

7 September 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Despite holiday light viewing levels, NBC's freshman drama Hawaii perked up a bit Monday in its second outing following its lukewarm premiere last week. The 9 p.m. airing of the sand-and-surf detective drama averaged 9.9 million viewers and 3.9 rating/10 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. Hawaii easily beat the second airing of Fox's home-makeover entry Renovate My Family (5.6 million, 2.7/7), which the detective drama faced off against last week in its Wednesday 8 p.m. debut, and Hawaii held on to the bulk of its lead-in from Fear Factor (9.9 million, 4.2/12), which dominated the 8 p.m. hour in adults 18-49 but was still off its game compared to last season. »

Fox builds a win in demo; 'Hawaii' sunny

3 September 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Home and family renovation proved a draw Wednesday for Fox, which won the night in the adults 18-49 demographic with the two-hour premiere of Renovate My Family. NBC's new 8 p.m. detective drama Hawaii did respectable business in its debut, given the schedule disruptions in various time zones for the peacock's live Republican National Convention coverage. CBS posted a rare fourth-place finish in total viewers for the night with an anemic turnout for the Latin Grammy Awards. NBC's Hawaii premiered to 10.9 million viewers and a 3.3 rating/11 share in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen Media Research. Hawaii led the hour in viewers and gained half a demo rating point from its first half-hour (3.0/11) to its second (3.5/11) but still wound up tying Fox's Renovate for No. 1 in the key demo. »

Nets back to casting board for new series

26 May 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Now that the networks have locked in their schedules, the focus has shifted to tweaking the shows that made the cut. NBC, which replaced a number of key actors on several pilots, including Hawaii, The MacGregors, D.O.T.S. and the untitled Tarses/Wrubel comedy, before or during production on the pilots, is busy again going back to the drawing board on several characters. Eric Lively, one of the stars on the comedy The Men's Room, which received a midseason order, has been let go along with Kal Penn, star of the midseason hopeful Nearly Nirvana (formerly Nevermind Nirvana). »
