/// Broadcast’s Graveyard Shift
From 1981 to 2009, NBC aired just three series in the Thursday 10 p.m. time slot: Hill Street Blues , L.A. Law and ER . Celebrated by critics and viewers alike, these were canonical dramas, series that represented network TV at its very best. Since ER flatlined in April 2009, NBC’s showcase has become a junk shop; in the last seven months alone, the network has run three dramas in the hour, a string of flops that averaged a 1.2 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo.
