    Constantine returned tonight in its new timeslot at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. If you were unprepared for the change, catch it on Hulu, NBC.com and OnDemand.

    Conclusion. John risks his life when, in order to fend off a vicious attack, he summons a demon into himself; at the same time, Chas, Zed and Anne Marie race against time to save their friend.

    In its new time slot, ratings drop 20%. Not Good.

    Ok, so we saw a hint of the Spectre. Meh.

    Word is that SyFy may pick up the show, with a title change to Hellblazer. Hindsight being what it is, SyFy is where this show should've gone in the first place once NBC-Universal picked up an option on it.

    Where did it go wrong? I don't honestly know. I watched the pilot, then missed 10 episodes (you know a DVD release will happen) before watching the last 2. Papa Midnite didn't impress me in the least bit. Zatanna was promised according to one source, so maybe, just maybe, if SyFy picks up the show, then she'll turn up.

    NBC's been trying to find a companion piece to Grimm at 10, but it hasn't worked (i.e. Dracula last season, Constantine this year), hence moving Constantine up and flipping with Dateline. You have a good, veteran creative pedigree (Mark Verheiden, a comics vet, and Rockne O'Bannon came on after the pilot) to go along with David Goyer, but maybe it's a case of comics fatigue setting in.

    Consider: Walking Dead on Sundays (MyNetwork picks up repurp rights and runs it opposite Arrow on Wednesdays, which was really intelligent. Not.). Gotham on Mondays. Flash and Agents Of SHIELD/Agent Carter on Tuesdays, and Arrow. Given that one day gap between Arrow & Constantine, and the fact that some folks think Constantine landed on the wrong network in the first place, maybe that broken link in the chain hurt Constantine more than a lack of ratings.
