“Harry’s Law” now moved to Wednesday nights opposite tough competition
HollywoodNews.com: Kathy Bates’ “Harry’s Law” may have survived its critical drubbings to become NBC’s most-watched drama, and it may have netted Bates an Emmy nomination — but that doesn’t mean smooth-sailing ahead for the David E. Kelley show, since it’s been moved to Wednesday nights opposite tough competition.
“We try not to think about that, but of course to some extent, you can’t avoid it,” notes Christopher McDonald, whose media hound lawyer character, Tommy Jefferson, becomes a full-time regular this season. “I miss our 10 o’clock Monday night thing. We’ll see how ‘Playboy Club’ does there. We’re up against Simon Cowell’s new show (“X Factor”), but I think our audience is a different audience,” he adds. They also must contend with “Modern Family” and “Criminal Minds.”
“Harry’s Law” returns Sept. 21, fortified by guest stars Jean Smart, as a prosecutor, and Alfred Molina, as a man accused of murdering his wife, in a three-episode storyline. Handsome Mark Valley of Kelley’s old “Boston Legal” is also aboard.
