Fringe moves to the Friday night death slot, first episode of 2011 to be titled "Firefly". An inside-joke that we understand all too well.
If Joss Whedon fans understand one thing, it is that when a show on Fox moves to Friday night, cancellation is nigh. Of course there is is no better example of this than Firefly, which as we all know was canceled after only 11 episodes had aired. So when it was announced that Fringe would be moving into the dreaded Friday night death slot mid-season, fans of the show immediately felt that the show was in danger. However the show's producers have decided to do something rather clever by titling that first episode to air on Friday night, "Firefly". An obvious tongue-in-cheek nod to perhaps the most famous show to fall peril to cancellation during that time slot.
Fringe returns Friday, Jan. 21 @9PM EST with special guest star, Christopher Lloyd. Great Scott!
