Fox Relegates Low-Rated Drama's Finale to Saturday Night TheWrap
Fox has shifted the finale of a struggling drama series to Saturday night -- the second move in recent weeks for the first-year show. TheWrap.com reports that the network will wrap up the season for the Greg Kinnear legal drama "Rake" with back-to-back episodes Saturday starting at 8 p.m.
Fox recently moved the show from its original Thursday perch to Fridays, but now the network will air a “Kitchen Nightmares” rerun in “Rake”s Friday 8 p.m. time period, the story reports. New episodes of "Kitchen Nightmares" will air in the slot on the following two Fridays, April 11 and April 18.
“Rake” is averaging a 1.1 rating/3 share in the 18-49 demographic in Live + 7 ratings, and is drawing an average of 4.6 million total viewers, the report notes.
