With about as much fanfare as you’d expect for a series struggling in the ratings, Pirate Master moves to Tuesdays at 10pm tonight due to the return of Big Brother for its eight season. The show will have a lead-in (Big Brother’s Tuesday edition), and should be able to do decently.
Still, is anyone really paying attention? From watching the CTV commercials for the series, it appears as if the series has yet to take a single honest-to-goodness twist. Survivor is a series that producers will always mix up when things get boring, but here they’re relying on the shipmates themselves to do the mixing…and they suck at it.
Will people tune in tonight to watch Pirate Master on its new night? Considering that CBS killed two shows within three months in this timeslot last year, something tells me “Arr, no” might be the answer we receive.
