Tonight, we get the last episode of Brothers & Sisters for a few weeks on ABC, the premiere of the TV movie (backdoor pilot) of Knight Rider on NBC and another episode of Breaking Bad on AMC. While the TVaholic will be watching all of those, in the same time period we get the network TV premiere of Dexter on CBS.
It will be interesting to see how they take a show originally shot for Showtime, with its relatively boundary free premium cable landscape, and re-cut it for air on network TV. They not only have to account for the graphicness, language and nudity, but cut about 10 minutes from episodes that ran about 53 minutes, or so, commercial free, so it can fit into a commercial hour.
Well, it looks like they will be running the show a bit long, like tonight’s premiere starts about three minutes before the hour. But, how will the boundaries of network TV change the show? We will be watching to find out. It looks like the ability to watch something, while recording up to four other shows, will come in handy tonight.
