The second episode of A.P. Bio is set to air at 10:30 PM Eastern on 2/25 on NBC, immediately following the end of the Olympics Closing Ceremony.
I was a little surprised that the slot didn’t go to an established show like Will & Grace or The Good Place, but maybe NBC thinks not enough fans of those shows will be up at 10:30 PM to watch, and then they’ll complain about the “missed” episode.
Also note that, unlike in 2016, there is no similar spot on the last Friday of the Olympics (IIRC), mainly because figure skating runs until at least 11 PM Eastern most nights.
That surprises me. I, too, thought they would have gone with a more popular show.
Don, it would be a month between the Good Place’s next-to-last episode and the season finale. W&G…they have 4 episodes remaining, but their ratings are on the decline. This is the right choice by NBC.
