CBS’ ‘Brother,’ ‘Dog’ swap timeslots

'Flashpoint,' 'Swingtown' switch pays off

CBS’ “Big Brother” is swapping slots with “Greatest American Dog,” marking the second time in recent weeks the Eye has made a mid-summer correction.

“Big Brother” is heading back to Thursdays at 8 p.m., where its elimination episode has aired in years past. That means “Dog,” which had been in that slot, will air on Wednesdays.

“Dog” has had a rough go on Thursdays; the show’s most recent seg fell behind Fox’s “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader” and tied with NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in the hour.

“Brother,” on the other hand, saw its Wednesday ratings increase this week, including a 17% bump with adults 18-49.

The Eye’s previous decision to swap the slots of “Flashpoint” and “Swingtown” has already paid off, at least for “Flashpoint”: The show (which has now been sold by Alchemy and Tele Munchen to more than 50 countries) won its first Thursday timeslot in 18-49 and total viewers.
