ABC swaps ‘Videos’ for struggling ‘Lois & Clark’

ABC is flip-flopping its Sunday night lineup, moving the struggling drama “Lois & Clark” from the 8-9 p.m. slot to the 7-8 p.m. slot and bumping up the hour of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” the current 7-8 p.m. show, to take “Lois & Clark’s”

place. The move goes into effect on Jan. 5.

Warner Bros.’ “Lois & Clark” has been disappointing to ABC this season, with the show hitting new rating lows. Most recently, it has been unable to crack a 10 share. Despite the poor performance, ABC has renewed the drama for next season. There has been speculation, denied by ABC, that the show was renewed as part of a deal that saw many of the ABC-owned TV stations secure a long-term deal for the Warner Bros. syndicated talkshow “Rosie O’Donnell.”

Whether “Lois & Clark” will stay on Sunday night all season remains to be seen. There has been speculation that the show may move to Saturday or another night. “Lois & Clark” has already been sold into syndication to Turner Broadcasting at a price estimated to be $275,000 per episode.
