Meme of the week: Fantasy scheduling

So suddenly, you get the call. Despite never having applied for the position, you’ve suddenly been appointed Head of Scheduling at your favourite TV channel. You’ve been given carte blanche to fill the schedules how you like, and you have the budget to acquire and even make whatever you want.

What’s your schedule like?

Obviously, what’s suitable for Saturday night viewing isn’t necessarily suitable for Sunday or Friday night. So you can restrict yourself to a single day or even a single evening. But it’s up to you: any time slots, any channel. 

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog.
