    Hi Folks,

    Channel Five have assured me that the time-change for "The Shield" (Season 3, episodes 5 through 13 inclusive) is a permanent thing.

    The reason for the change, is because they feel that having it later on Saturday nights, will bring more viewers to the channel, on one of the worst nights for TV shows of the week - across the other four terrestrial stations that is.

    Five already have a strong line-up of US dramas on Tuesdays and Saturdays anyway, but they wanted to maximise the line-ups, by putting another new show alongside "Law And Order: Special Victims Unit", to entice viewers to watch Five on Saturday nights. On its own, "Law And Order...." doesn't do as well as Five would like, but does do well enough for them to stick it in a prime-time slot on a Saturday night. With both this and "The Shield" being hard-hitting adult crime dramas, Five felt it might give both shows a bit of a boost, in terms of ratings figures.
