HIDDEN REMOTE – Following a breakout freshman season, ‘Lethal Weapon’ is coming back for a second season this fall on a new night that is sure to cause some headaches for fans!
There is no denying that Lethal Weapon was one of, if not the biggest hit of the 2016-17 for Fox. The series quickly caught viewers’ attention and began a steady performer for Fox throughout the season in its Wednesday night time slot. Thanks to the show’s success, Fox was quick to hand out a second season renewal to the Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford-fronted drama.
However, the one thing that no fan saw coming was Fox’s decision to move the series from Wednesday night to Tuesday night where there show will now face off against even tougher competition! Beginning Tuesday, September 26, Lethal Weapon will make the move to Tuesday nights where it will go head-to-head with some of the biggest shows on air – which could result in a few DVR headaches for fans.
Now airing at 8/7c on Tuesday, Lethal Weapon will air in the same time slot as NBC’s The Voice, CBS’s NCIS (aka television’s most-watched drama) ABC’s The Middle and Fresh Off the Boat and The CW’s The Flash.
While the show managed to maintain a solid audience in Season 1, it did go up against softer competition which will make it interesting to see how the show fares when it returns this fall!
