    NBCU is gambling on weaknesses in the other networks.

    They've redone Wednesday by moving Friday's "Life" (which had a 27% total viewers and a 38% key demo viewers DVR bump) to Wednesday between Knight Rider and the new season of L&O. Right now ABC's 9-11 lineup of "Private Practice" and "Dirty Sexy Money" are doing poorly behind "Criminal Minds" and "CSI:NY". So they're reasonably assured of #2.

    On the other hand, on Friday at 9 CBS' "The Ex-List" had to be dumped. NBC itself is burying "Crusoe" and "Lipstick Jungle" but NBCU's USA has a cable "hit" with "Starter Wife" at 10 and so their going after the 9 position with "L&O:CI" which will make it hard for CBS to get significant numbers. (ABC and Fox let Friday more or less slide, hoping the other two will screw up which CBS did by dumping "Moonlight").

    Don't bother. NBCU pushed CI back to 2009 today.

    I love the writer's comment "No reason was given for any of the aforementioned changes." I frankly wondered who thought "L&O:CI" viewers and "Start Wife" viewers had alot in common. But networks have done dumber things.
