Kings Pushed to NBC’s Summer Schedule

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, NBC,

Kings' Ian McShane has just been banished from NBC’s regular schedule.

After several weeks of failed attempts in the Sunday 8:00 time slot, the Ian McShane vehicle was gently relocated to the network’s weekend calendar. Unfortunately, the freshman drama’s performance there still left a lot to be desired.

Effective immediately, NBC will air repeats of Law & Order: SVU, Southland and Law & Order on Saturday evenings. (Interesting side note: ‘s Thursday night spot was once owned by the bumped series.)

The remaining episodes of Kings are now scheduled to play out on Saturdays…in the summer. Make sure to adjust your DVRs between the weeks of June 13 and July 25.

Sunday Ratings: Music Awards Has CBS Singing

Either country music is in its prime, or viewers weren’t interested in a Housewives repeat. Whatever the reason, the ACMAs were hot last night. Yesterday’s broadcast had its best demos since 2005 and its largest audience in 11 years.

Carrie Underwood at the Academy of Country Music Awards8pm

  • The Academy of Country Music Awards (3.8/10 in 18-49) drew in 14.8 million for CBS.
  • * (7.1 million, 2.2/6) was down 3.7 million from last week.
  • (6.4 million, 3.1/9) lost 200,000; * (2.8/7) turned in 5.8 million.
  • (3.6 million, 1.1/3) gave up another 800,000.
  • CW’s airing of Rocky III (0.4/1) had 1.1 million cheering.

Parks and Recreation

(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY 4/6)
  • Little People, Big World (TLC, 8pm):  “Molly gets her learner’s permit, but her driving lessons get off to a shaky start.” Hours of Mario Kart Wii clearly hasn’t helped.
  • Chuck (NBC, 8pm):  “Chuck’s lfe takes fortunate turns: Not only does his long-estranged father return, but Chuck scores a coveted job with Ted Roark (), a heroic figure in his life.” The guy who got Christie Brinkley to jump naked into a pool is a hero to many.
  • Surviving Suburbia (ABC, 9:30pm):  “Cynical dad (Bob Saget) accidentally starts a fire in his neighbor’s home after he reluctantly agrees to house-sit.” That’s one way to make sure he won’t be asked again.
  • Mystery Diagnosis (Discovery Health, 10pm):  “A newlywed suffers from crippling nausea.” Cold feet is what happens before the wedding.

Sunday Ratings: Family Guy Beams Up the Numbers

FOX might not have been last night’s winning network (that title belongs to CBS), but it wasn’t due to lack of trying. Yesterday’s Family Guy episode drew a fair number of Trekkies and the best demos of the evening.

Star Trek: The Next Generation on Family Guy8pm

  • 60 Minutes/The Amazing Race combined efforts for 13 million (3.8/10 in 18-49).
  • (10.8 million, 3.6/9) was up 1 million.
  • (6.6 million, 3.1/9) improved by 400,000.

Sunday Ratings: Weekend Ends with a CBS Win

Couple a basketball tournament overrun with a President Obama interview and what do you get? A nice way to start the evening for CBS. Despite hot competition from Desperate Housewives, the Eye network won both the viewers and the demos last night.

Sunday Ratings: Kings is No Ratings Ruler

One of these evenings NBC will get it right. Just days after witnessing a painful debut by The Chopping Block, the network did it again. Yesterday’s premiere of Kings failed to deliver any power to the Sunday night lineup. CBS wound up winning the viewers while ABC topped the demos.

Kings

(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY 3/9)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  Season premiere. “This season, a new feature in the early weeks is a dance-off between the bottom two couples facing elimination.” Steve Wozniak + moon walk = elimination-proof.
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  “The guys’ trip to San Francisco takes a detour once they learn that actress Summer Glau (appearing as herself) is on their train.” If you don’t already know who is, you probably shouldn’t be watching this show.
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30pm):  “Ted reunites with his college girlfriend (), prompting Lily and Marshall to reveal how much they loathed the snooty woman.” From what I recall, one can easily bond with Prepon over a quick smoke break.
  • Castle (ABC, 10pm):  Series premiere. “Well-known mystery writer Richard Castle is questioned by a fiery detective about a serial killer reenacting murders from his books.” Kinda sounds like Basic Instinct, sans a naked Michael Douglas. Or Sharon Stone. Or Jeanne Tripplehorn.
