Boston Legal moving to Wednesdays

This was posted on The Futon Critic today (from a press release ABC made on Monday):

"Women's Murder Club" will return with original episodes on TUESDAY, APRIL 29 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. The one-hour series from James Patterson will air for three weeks in that time period.

"Boston Legal" will move to Wednesday night at 10:00 p.m., as of WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), where it will air for three weeks, on April 30, May 14 and May 21, with a preemption for an ABC News special on May 7. "MEN IN TREES" will return on WEDNESDAY, MAY 28 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), following "Boston Legal's" run.
With no word yet on renewal for the fifth season, plus this time slot change, could this be the end for Boston Legal? Or is ABC hoping a move for Women's Murder Club will boost its ratings?

I dunno. What else is on Wednesdays at 10 p.m.? A past-its-prime Law & Order?

Dang it. The network aren't terribly concerned with keeping this show, are they? First Sunday, then to Tuesday, and now to Wednesday.

Oh well. I'll watch it for as long as it's on. Alan's closings alone make the show worthwhile for me.

Well the question begs, "What are they going to put in that slot?"

They must think or have something that they are preparing to place in the BL Tuesday timeslot. New reality series?

Even if it doesn't get picked up for a fifth season, which I think it will, David Kelly doesn't usually go for long series anyway.

Even though I haven't seen season four yet, I hope it gets picked up for a fifth year. Boston Legal is one of the best things on television.

Maybe they'll put Women's Murder Club there permanently if its ratings go up enough to merit renewal. I believe it's considered a "bubble show" at the moment.

Methinks they're burying WMC and deciding that BL might get better ratings in the Wednesday slot until WMC dies.

I'm happy. I'd rather that BL not face off against L&O: SVU anymore.

I can't see ABC cancelling Boston Legal but I do think the 5th season will most likely be the last.

I think you're probably right. They'll have 88 episodes at the end of this season, and another 22-24 season episode would put them well over the hump for syndication (though BL reruns will already start in the fall on the ION network).

I love this show. I don't watch it when it airs - I have watched the first 3 seasons entirely on DVD. But it's a great show and it would be a shame if it went away.

It really boggles the mind that they would even consider canceling a show that has won so many awards. Shatner and Spader alone are pure brilliance, and worth the price of the DVD sets all on their own.

I hope the network makes every effort to keep this show alive.

I read this yesterday and was pissed off, so I didn't post it.

Stupid STUPID ABC, it's only for 3 weeks, assholes.

And I think season 5 will be the last.

Damn, there goes Top Cheif either for three weeks or at 10 (CDT) making it hard to watch Family Guy and Two & a Half Men reruns.

What is with ABC's attitude towards this show? For a show with multiple-Emmy winning actors, one wonders why they jerk it around with the timeslot changes and not much advertising (at least that I've seen) and no episodes online.
