NBC’s Crusoe Shipped Off to Friday

Mirroring failed reality/competition America’s Toughest Jobs, NBC will move ratings-challenged drama Crusoe from Friday at 9 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday effective on Dec. 6. 

Holiday-themed specials will fill the Friday 8 p.m. hour in December, leading into the relocated Lipstick Jungle (which will air the last of its final four episodes) at 9 p.m., followed by Dateline at 10 p.m. 

Deal or No Deal, which is anchoring Friday at present, will be pared down to one telecast per week.
