NBC’s Kings Downgraded to Saturdays

Mirroring early season freshman entry Crusoe, which started on Friday and ended up finishing its run on Saturday, NBC will move recently introduced drama Kings from Sunday at 8 p.m. to Saturday at 8 p.m. beginning on April 18. 

Season-to-date, Kings is averaging a mere 5.28 million viewers, with a 1.5 rating/4 share among adults 18-49, according to Nielsen Media Research data. 

Those results will only get worse once Kings relocates to low-Hut level Saturday. Sunday 7 p.m. occupant Dateline will expand two-hours in place of Kings.
