Person of Interest stars Jim Caviezel as John Reese. An ex-CIA officer and Green Beret he’s current living in a rundown apartment in NYC after an ‘incident’ left him presumed dead. Then along comes a billionaire computer genius Harold Finch (played by Lost’s Michael Emerson), explaining he’s built a computer that uses information gathered in today’s surveillance culture to create a prediction engine that will predict terrorist attacks and crimes. When the government ignores Finch, he decides to talk matters into his own hands, and hires Reese for his CIA/kicking ass skills to track down the crimes, and stop them before they happen. Think park Batman, part Minority Report.

Person of Interest is has taken a 'mid-season break' as Channel 5 isn't happy with the slot it was airing in, so plan to bring it back in the new year with a new time slot. I'm guessing that means they weren't happy with the viewing figures... I'm just hoping that doesn't mean they'll drop it after season 1... We'll have to wait and see!

    Person Of Interest. Channel 5 have just informed me that the move on 10th April is just for one week because of a week of crime programmes!

  2. Rumpoles says:

    Channel 5 appear to have moved Person of Interest to an even later slot of 11pm from Thursday 10th April. If this is permanent is it the beginning of the end? We are way behind the USA. They are dropping dramas in place of home grown dross documentaries.

    C5 announce today that Person of interest is back on 27th march 2014 at 10pm

  4. svenja diederich says:

    Finally :) channel 5 should stop doing this is how shows get cancelled. They need to just show helix too.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      If Person of Interest gets cancelled, it will be entirely due to its ratings in the US and nothing at all to do with its scheduling in one of several foreign markets (in this case! our UK).

  5. Benzowner says:

    Come on channel 5, when are you going to restart Person of Interest

  6. Chrissy Nicholls says:

    When are we going to get person of interest back on channel 5 , we got to episode 9 of season 2 then it stopped ………….. yet you keep showing repeats of other shows

  7. Pete says:

    I’m glad Channel 5 finally got their act together and have started broadcasting season 2 of “Person of Interest”. It’s such a great show. However I’m disappointed by Channel 5′s acquisition team. They seem rather slow to pick up the newer seasons of decent US shows, for example: they’re about a year or so behind on “NCIS” (another great import, thankfully if you have Sky the channel Fox UK is up-to-date) and they’ve only recently started showing season 3 of “Castle” yet anyone who’s been watching it on Alibi will be anxiously waiting for season 6 to air there. Seems like they don’t particularly care about their viewers and would rather schedule more crappy ‘reality documentaries’ and similar. Thank god for DVD box sets!

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      In fairness to 5, both Castle and NCIS are second runs. You highlight that the first runs are on Alibi and Fox, respectively. The second run rights almost certainly come with a clause that stipulates a broadcast window. In other words Channel 5 cannot broadcast them earlier, no matter how much disdain they receive!

      Fox isn’t exclusive to Sky.

  8. Jetski says:

    On season 4 now in USA episode 5 aired last night, still in the top 10 in Nielsen ratings. So very good chance that it will be renewed for season 5 as well.
    Shame that in UK Channel 56 have it and muck around with the air time and dates.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      I think you skipped a year. This American programme aired series 3, episode 5 last night. Sure it is not aired at the same pace in its international markets, such as here. Channel 5, I believe, have been changing its position in the schedule because its viewing figures have not been as high as desired. Better that that dropping it entirely, surely.

      Yes, at the moment it has a reasonable chance of renewal (series 4) but that’s unlikely to be decided until early next year.

  9. Michelle says:

    i thought they were on season 3 now? i recall seeing 2 already

  10. John Sturdy says:

    Oh crap typo The River.

  11. John Sturdy says:

    There are several shows I’m still interested in finding out about. Primeval series 6, Haven season 4, Teenwolf season 3, Person of Interest season 2, Persons Unknown season 2& the new Vampire Diaries spin off The Originals. Not to mention the next series of The Vampire Diaries it’ self. Kinda lost track of how many seasons we’ve had so far,lol. Oh & I missed The Ruver again . My recordings failed on some of the episodes, dito with Falling Skies season 3!

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Is that all? :)

      Well, Teen Wolf 3 will be available on DVD. Persons Unknown won’t have a 2nd series. Primeval 6 looks unlikely.

      Person of Interest 2, Haven 4, the Vampire Diaries 5 and the Originals are all in our Airdates list.

      The River is only available on R1 DVD but might also still be on UK iTunes. Falling Skies should be available on DVD in the summer.
