Ken Tucker plays TV programmer
What shows are on the wrong network and would benefit from a ”JAG”-like switch to a different home? — Chris
My man, you’ve tapped into my favorite game, If I Were a TV Programmer! Okay, two examples: I think that if ”Alias” were on The WB, it might not attract as many viewers, but it’d be reaching its core audience and be a more zeitgeist-y show than it is on dowdy ABC. By contrast, I think if you moved the ethereal ”Everwood” from The WB to CBS, which nurtures thoughtful family shows like ”Joan of Arcadia,” this first-rate family saga would become a mass phenomenon.
