    I was kind of hoping Arrow and Flash would be back to back, but Flash still pulled a good time slot. Looking forward to all these new shows. My DVR is going to explode.

    Gotham on Mondays, Flash on Tuesdays, Arrow on Wednesdays, and Constantine on Fridays? The wife and I will fight over the remote every night.

    NBC placing Constantine at 10pm on a Friday seems like a death sentence.

    With DVRs and Hulu, the Death Slot isn't as potent as it used to be, but it still isn't doing anyone any favors.

    Interesting to see that THE FLASH is now in the same Tuesday-at-eight "competing with NCIS and THE VOICE slot" that AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. just moved out of. It's like a trial-by-fire for new comics shows...

    (I'm also surprised that they didn't pair ARROW and THE FLASH on the same night -- it would have made any crossovers easy-peasy)

    Wow. Those are some rough time slots.

    The Flash has a particularly difficult time slot. Tuesdays at 8pm. It goes head to head against the ratings Juggernaut NCIS.

    Gotham Monday at 8pm is a rough one too.

    I'm not so worried about Constantine. Yes, it's on Friday Night but at least it has a Grimm lead in so it at least makes sense to schedule then. What would have been the death blow would be Thursday at 8pm. Nothing is going to slow down Big Bang Theory any time soon.

    I swear, it's almost as if these networks want the shows to fail right out of the gate!

    The Flash on Tuesdays at 8:00pm competing against NCIS??? Why not put it up against Gotham on Mondays? Or better yet after Flash on Wednesdays??? Tuedays at 8:00pm is a bat time slot for any show, let alone a comic book one.

    Then we have NBC and Constantine. Fridays at 10:00pm?!?!? Who's going to watch it?!?!?! They should just go ahead and cancel it before they even air the pilot!

    I doubt WB/DC would allow Gotham and Flash to compete.

    After Arrow would make sense, but keep in mind NCIS didn't kill SHIELD. Although they are moving from what I hear.

    Flash and NCIS aren't going for the same audiences though. My 70 year old aunts watch NCIS. Flash is going for people 18 to 40

    I'm pretty happy with it. I work pretty late, so after work I usually want to watch TV, and there's nothing on on Fridays, so Constantine will nicely fill that void.

    Or they think the 18-49 demo won't give a shit.
    Or...like it's aimed at old people and young children.
