The Friday night pairing of Constantine and Grimm seemed like a good move by NBC, but the 10 pm time slot has always been kind of a dead zone over the years. So the network execs have decided to move the freshman series. Now instead of following Grimm, Constantine will be the lead in. Starting January 16th you can catch John, Zed and Chaz at 8 pm on the peacock network.
The move is a little surprising as the show was not given a back 9 order – it hasn't been cancelled and remains a good candidate for a second season – and the subject matter of the series seems outside of the normal more family-friendly programming that normally airs in the earlier time slots.
It will be interesting to see how the ratings are affected by the time change. The announcement came by way of twitter.
