NBC's HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT Heads to Thursdays Following Olympics
"Hollywood Game Night" is heading to Thursday nights after the Olympics. The Jane Lynch-hosted game show will assume the Thursday, 9:00/8:00c hour beginning February 27, network sources confirmed to the site this afternoon.
"Game Night" replaces freshman comedies "Sean Saves the World" and "The Michael J. FOX Show," both of which still have episodes yet to air.
"Sean" received a de facto cancellation after production was halted last week while "Fox" wrapped filming on its 22-episode order in December. It's not clear when - or if - their remaining installments will air.
"Hollywood Game Night's" adults 18-49 average (1.713 million viewers through six originals) actually fares better than all of the Peacock's Thursday comedies thus far this season:
1.530 million adults 18-49 - "Parks & Recreation" (13 episodes)
1.529 million adults 18-49 - "Community" (6 episodes)
1.474 million adults 18-49 - "The Michael J. FOX Show" (15 episodes)
1.296 million adults 18-49 - "Sean Saves the World" (13 episodes)
1.183 million adults 18-49 - "Welcome to the Family" (3 episodes)
