NBC’s Fear Itself Airs in May

NBC Hosts Fear Itself starting May 29th!Only a few days have passed since our last big story on NBC’s upcoming horror anthology Fear Itself (““>Full Fear Itself Episode Lineup!” – March 2008), and the internet is abuzz about it again today.

NBC will be premiering the show on May 29th at 10 P.M. Only two months to go!

Fear Itself fills in the void that Masters of Horror left after its second season. The show will feature some of the best directors in the genre such as Stuart Gordon, Brad Anderson and Darren Bousman to name a few. For a full list of the first season’s episodes, “>click here!

    Not from what I’ve heard, particularly since NBC is rolling this out with their host of reality programming, which will get a much bigger push than this, particularly considering the fact that there’s already been a LOT of behind the scenes turmoil — and calling May the new January isn’t really correct, as there aren’t a lot of mid-season replacements cropping up this year (no one was around to write them) and it’s not like we’ve got an entire brand new season to look forward to (and trust me, as I’m very intimate with the strike).

    Dramas rarely do well when they’re premiered in the summer months, and anthologies usually do even worse (remember Masters of Science Fiction?) Not premiering this in the Fall in a show of no faith by NBC, who are already hoping to recoup their costs on DVD after this show sinks and dies in the ratings.

    With all the shows that have been cut short, cancelled, or postponed due to that writer’s strike, I wouldn’t call a May debut as being “dumped”. Normally that would be the case, but this year’s circumstances are different. May will be the new January this year, with a lot of the shows that would have debuted in January now popping up in May after having to wait out the strike. I suspect NBC will give this a pretty big push.

    Blegh, Blah, and Meh come to mind with this upcoming series. MOH sucked balls, there’s little chance this will be anything above sucking.

    Dumping it in May is a surefire sign that NBC doesn’t care much about it, as the summer months are a dumping ground and are rarely good to genre series. I predict very little promotion, tepid episodes and miniscule ratings. This series won’t even make it to the Fall.
