Fox eyes midseason for ‘Visions’

Anthology thriller pushed back to 2001

Fox viewers will have to wait until January to start having some “Night Visions.”

The net has pushed “Night Visions” back to midseason, reshuffling its Friday night in the process: New drama “Freakylinks” will now air at 9 p.m., while reality stalwart “World’s Wildest Police Videos” — now simply titled “Police Videos” — kicks the night off at 8 p.m.

Fox execs said they decided to shift the anthology thriller “Night Visions,” hosted by Henry Rollins, back to midseason after it became apparent the network couldn’t devote enough marketing resources behind it.

“Rather than jeopardize two promising shows, we elected instead to launch Fridays with an established property with a proven track record in the time period,” said Fox Entertainment prexy Gail Berman.

Midseason promo

Execs from Warner Bros., which produces “Night Visions,” said they supported the move, which may allow for heavier promotion in midseason similar to the launch of “Malcolm in the Middle” last year.

“Night Visions” is the second series announced by Fox at May’s upfront presentation for fall that has since been moved to midseason. Fox previously pushed back the laffer “Schimmel.”
