Tonight on the Tube: Law & Order Repeats, Monarch Cove and College Football

Law & Order: Criminal Intent PC GameIf you were planning on catching the next installment of Kidnapped on NBC tonight you will have to go online to see it. NBC has decided to stop airing the remaining episodes on Saturday night in lieu of Law & Order: Criminal Intent repeats. The show had not performed well on Saturday nights the last couple weeks. They are in the process of finishing up filming of the thirteenth and final episode. They will all be online for your viewing pleasure. They decided to take it off the air and not just for the next two weeks, which is the sweeps period where advertising rates are set, but for good. New episodes will be available each Friday at the NBC Kidnapped website. I am not sure why they couldn’t play them out on one of their cable properties but if you want to know what happened this looks like your only chance unless NBC decides to put it out on DVD at some point. I find this to be very disappointing but at least there is a conclusion to the mystery and a way to see it, although not a very good one.
