It may not have won over a lot of Dread Central readers’ hearts, but “Harper’s Island” isn’t doing so poorly that it’s being canceled. However, CBS is moving the show to Saturday night … not exactly a ringing endorsement.
According to a story in today’s Variety, the network will begin airing the show on Saturdays at 9:00 PM. The word is that “Harper’s” got a reprieve from outright cancellation thanks to its live-plus-seven Nielsen ratings, which exhibited solid DVR interest in the show’s premiere, and it also earned a healthy online streaming audience.
Personally, I’ve been rather enjoying the series and am glad to see it’s being allowed to run its course, which is most likely a result of the fact that all 13 episodes have already been produced and edited.
