Marvel's The Inhumans is finally on the way, but ABC isn't giving it the time slot that you'd expect. The network has placed Marvel's newest series at 9 pm ET on Friday nights.
Fridays used to be the night designated for older audiences, or shows that a network was expecting to cancel. However, after the success of shows like Grimm and McGyver, it's not exactly a bad place to be anymore.
Still, the Friday assignment doesn't invoke a ton of confidence. The Gifted, Marvel's X-Men series at Fox, was given the highly-coveted 9 pm Monday space.
The silver-lining here is that The Inhumans is only supposed to be eight episodes. With a short season planned, people will be willing to tune in on a Friday night, especially considering Once Upon A Time will serve as a lead-in.
Although Agents of SHIELD was renewed for another season, it's missing from the schedule entirely. This leads us to believe that the series will get a midseason premiere, or take the place of Inhumans following its eight-episode run.
