FOX Moves "Greed" To Fridays

FOX will move its new game show, "Greed," from Thursday to Friday nights. The Chuck Woolery-hosted multi-million dollar quiz show, which has boosted FOX's ratings on Thursday nights since its debut in November, will shift to Fridays at 9 p.m. starting January 7, reportsVariety.

"Greed's" lead in show will be "World's Wildest Police Videos" at 8 p.m. A test run of these two shows proved fruitful last Friday night, as the network score its first win of the season in the adults 18-49 demographic.

Going forward, FOX will most likely pack its Thursday nights with movies and specials, though extra episodes of "Greed" on periodic Thursdays are also an option.
