Good move for Hellcats.  Worse leadin, but it should be easier to face DwtS 
than American Idol.

This seems like an odd scheduling move.  Isn't 'Shedding for the wedding' 
only 6 episodes long?  I expected it to be filler before the next season of 
ANTM started.

How many more episodes of Life Unexpected are left to air?  Aren't these the 
only two epiodes left?
That will complete the series. The producers promised to tie up plot threads
as they weren't anticipating that a third season would be ordered.
What "lead-in"? "Hellcats" is going to be leading in to "One Tree
Hill", not the other way around.

Ian  (Of course, this once again weakens my Wednesdays - "Human
Target" strengthened it, but with "Hellcats" gone, I'm not sure I have
anything at 9pm now...  :(  [checking...] No, it's the other way
around - "Human Target" is moving to Wednesdays at 9pm in January,
which means I'll have nothing Wednesdays at 8pm, *again*!!  >:/  )
Not according to the quote above.  Hellcats at 9pm means that OTH will be 
the lead-in.

Survivor, Top Model, Modern Family, Cougar Town...all better than pretty 
much every show you watch.
Ah, it seems you're right - I misread that.
So it is time for you to start watching "Survivor" with the rest of
us! ;)
Just say 'No', Baby!

Ian  (But, seriously - Wednesday nights have been a problem all TV
season this year...  :/ )
I dunno.  I think AI is really vulnerable this year.
It won't be facing Dancing, it'll be facing V.  It'll be another 2
months before it faces Dancing, by which time Hellcats' season will be
just about over and heavily into repeats.

You think it'll even last 6 episodes?
