May 25--Think there's already too much to watch on Sunday nights? Of course there is, and the logjam gets even worse beginning in July when Starz moves its original shows to Sunday from Saturday.
The shift starts with the Season 3 premiere of "Power" (the top-rated Starz original) on July 17 and continues with the return of "Survivor's Remorse" on July 24.
Moving to Sunday puts Starz into direct competition with HBO and Showtime, both of which air their original series on Sunday. Other high-profile cable series including "The Walking Dead" on AMC also air on Sunday, and the night is especially busy during the network TV season because of first-run shows on broadcast and PBS.
Sunday is the night with the biggest TV audience, and programs airing Sunday tend to get the most buzz at the water cooler the next day.
But the Sunday night crush is difficult for viewers, who are forced to juggle their DVRs and seek out repeats or on-demand airings.
