Prime Suspect NBC's new programming strategy? 'Prime Suspect' on all the time!

The network previously placed 'Prime Suspect' in the Mondays at 10PM timeslot formerly held by 'The Playboy Club,' but now the show will air on Tuesday, Wednesday and in its regular Thursday at 10PM home.

Have no fear, 'Parenthood' and 'Law & Order: SVU' fans, it's just during the week of Oct. 24. According to Vulture, 'Parenthood' and 'SVU' were scheduled to have rerun episodes during that week.

Another episode will run on Saturday at 9PM.

'Prime Suspect' kicked off to 6 million viewers, but since then it's dipped to 4.5 million. The ratings in the 18-49 demographic have also slipped from 1.8 to 1.3. This aggressive move could work in getting new eyes on the struggling freshman drama.

NBC recently ordered six more scripts for the series, but they've yet to be ordered into production.

Tell us: Will you give 'Prime Suspect' a try? If you have and quit the show, why did you stop watching?
