It looks like the local ABC affiliate here is once again pre-empting BattleBots. The 2-Hour Season Finale on Sept. 1 will again be delayed until 1:05 am ET. This marks the second time this season that an episode has been pushed back from 8 pm to 1 am. That, plus the hiatus due to the Olympics, gives me the feeling it won't be back next year.
That's what sucks about the NFL preseason. That same night the BattleBots finale airs, the CBS lineup in my area will be preempted because of the NFL. I think BattleBots might return next year. The show really hasn't bombed out this summer and has managed to hang on at 8 pm. Of course without Steve as its lead in ratings have dropped, but not too terrible. Hopefully To Tell The Truth next summer gets a better night and time. Idiotest got the numbers it got because they put reruns an hour before the new run.
Slightly off topic here but I'm assuming Big Fan will premiere in the Summer of 2017 if it continues as a no go for 2016 also I'm curious as to whether the reality competition series My Diet is Better Than Yours has also gotten the "Pink Slip" by the alphabet network or not?
I do not have an answer for you for 'Big Fan'. I have not heard of the series yet to be honest with you.As for 'My Diet is Better Than Yours', ratings have been bad at best. I would assume the series is a goner.
strange that Big Fan hasn't been talked about for months after it's announcement.As for MDIBTY that's understandable since I've never watched the series myself as its kind of rips off The Biggest Loser with Fitness Gurus competing against each other.
