Revenge 3x09 Sneak Peek
Two wrongs can never make a right, because two wrongs can never equal each other. For the truly wronged, real satisfaction can only be found in one of two places: absolute forgiveness or mortal vindication. This is not a story about forgiveness.

ABC has finalized its midseason schedule, and while it includes premiere dates for a handful of new and returning series, the shuffle of one its scripted veterans marks one of the bigger moves. Starting March 9, Revenge will move from 9 p.m. on Sundays to 10 p.m. The move follows lackluster ratings for the third-year drama, and makes room for freshman Resurrection to open in the more friendly time slot. Notably absent is The Quest. Previously pushed from its Jan. 2 premiere date, the reality competition is now holding for summer.
It makes sense to run a show at a different time than it’s strongest competition - i.e. Homeland, Game of Thrones. However, the change does put in more direct conflict with Mad Men, but it is only for a couple of weeks out of the year.
[ Side note: Gabriel Mann was on Mad Men, and did an excellent job! Also, the part of Peggy Olson was originally written with Emily VanCamp in mind. Matt Wiener confirmed this in an interview. One of several sources->http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com/entertainment_tv/2008/10/mad-men-peggy-a.html
If you don’t believe me yet, just remember all of the comments from the first season of about Peggy’s amazing legs, or how Freddy Rumsen (Joel Murray) gives peggy the nickname “Ballerina”. Emily giving a Ballet lesson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5Ds0gAUoKg]
(Un)fortunately Emily was under contract to be on Brothers & Sisters. While I think B&S was a poor showcase of Emily’s talents, I don’t think we’d have her on the awesome show “Revenge" if Emily had been cast on Mad Men.]
Remember that Revenge has been an international success, so I don’t think that the show is in danger of being cancelled. I frankly wished it would have stayed on Wednesday night. ABC felt the need to play viewership chess (which is understandable). For my money, or at least my viewership attention, they used to own Wednesday nights with the best drama (Revenge) and the best Comedy (Modern Family) on TV, Unfortunately, corporate executives are not rewarded for maintaining the (sometimes awesome) status quo.
Overall, I’m just fine with a Revenge schedule change, as long as they maintain the awesome quality they have been delivering in previous episodes of season 3.
By the way, Revenge has so far been my favorite show of all time!
I’ll repeat that i’d love to see Victoria Grayson and Cersei Lanister go head to head. They both love their children… :)
