Empire has already undergone several changes including initially planned as an ELEVEN series, then scheduled on Thursdays, moved to Sundays and now out of schedule -all before the first episode airs.
Update: It now premieres on Sunday March 1st at 10pm.
Elementary was due to premiere on Monday is now out replaced with a Law and Order: SVU replay.
Update: It now airs 10pm Monday March 2nd.
It’s not clear why TEN has withdrawn the shows but without adequate momentum it may well have been throwing away two strong shows.
