Fox President Defends Fringe Move to Thursdays

by at . Comments

It's not a major Fringe spoiler to report that the show is moving to Thursday nights next fall.

Understandably, fans are concerned about how this decision will affect the future of the show, considering its competition will now consist of CSI, Grey's Anatomy and The Office.

How do you comfort those concerns, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly?

"[CSI and Grey's Anatomy] are two still-terrific appointment shows, but they're down," he said to TV Guide. "They are not consuming all the oxygen at 9 o'clock. [Fringe] got a huge amount of buzz coming out of the last batch of episodes,,, and is a real alternative to both of those shows. It's not an overlapping audience."

Tell that to our DVRs, Kevin!
