[WARNING: Chi McBride sorta kinda spoils the ending of “Lost” in this interview.]
Ever do a long, detailed interview that was rendered mostly irrelevant by factors beyond your control?
Take, for example, the conversation I had with Chi McBride back in August on the set of FOX’s “Human Target.” I vividly remembered McBride’s discomfort with doing our interview on the inclined from lawn of the mansion being used for the day. What I forgot was the amount of time we spent discussion how he figured “Human Target” would do airing on Friday nights and the wisdom of network TV programmers.
The short version: He thought “Human Target” would do well on Fridays, but he’s been doing this long enough to know the decision is out of his hands.
The issue is moot now, since FOX moved “Human Target” off of Friday nights, just days before it was set to premiere, pushing the show to Wednesdays, starting tonight (Nov. 17).
Fortunately, just two weeks after that Vancouver interview, I talked to McBride on camera and tried to cover different terrain, meaning no Friday questions and the viability of this video interview.

“Human Target” returns to FOX on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 8 p.m.
