Hopefully you’ve been watching the nicely twisty and intriguing Extant on CBS. The promotions leading up to the premiere were intriguing but vague; happily it has turned out to be twisty, engaging, and suspenseful – there’s even a conspiracy, yay! – and the future setting adds some cool visual elements.
If you haven’t been watching live, you’re not alone; second episode viewing jumped by 3 million when including “live + 7” numbers. That’s pretty good, but to give it a boost, CBS has changed the timeslot of the show from 9/8c to 10/9c, and now according to Deadline it has moved the season finale from September 24 to September 17 so it isn’t competing with network premiere week.
Here’s a reminder of some recent ramping-up scenes:

I’d show you clips from this week’s new episode but they are far too spoilery as they are currently edited. Suffice to say, the peril continues and expands. OooOOOOOooo!
Extant, starring Halle Berry, Goran Visnjic, Michael O’Neill, Camryn Manheim, Josh Malina, and Pierce Gagnon, airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS.
