The thing that gets me about NBC is they ordered 13 Hannibal episodes, done by Bryan Fuller, and are planning to waste them in a summer timeslot...
Actually, that might not be a bad move with an "edgy" show: start it when the competition is less intense and build up a following.

For example: The first four seasons of "Mad Men" all ran during the summer. Most seasons of "Six Feet Under" did as well.

Maybe NBC is trying to follow that model.
That's what they claim but no one watches network TV in the summer. It's all light summer fluff now.
But isn't one of the criticisms of network TV that they don't do the same type of innovative things that cable does?
