ABC Tweaks Prime-Time Lineup — and It Looks Like Bad News for One Drama Series

Oct 26, 2017  •  Post A Comment

The ABC Network is tinkering with its prime-time programming schedule, with a move for the struggling freshman drama series “Ten Days in the Valley” from Sunday night to Saturday night. The show’s star Kyra Sedgwick broke the news in a tweet today, writing: “The good people @ABCNetwork  are moving #TenDaysInTheValley to Saturday night. STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS!! xx”

Variety notes that the show, which aired its fourth episode last Sunday, is on a break, and is set to return on its new night with back-to-back episodes on Dec. 16. In its place on Sundays, ABC will air back-to-back episodes of “Shark Tank.”

“The move likely spells the end for the drama, which has struggled to find an audience since its launch in early October,” Variety notes. “The series opened to a modest 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.4 million viewers on Oct. 1 in the Nielsen Live+Same Day ratings. It was all downhill from there, with the first four episodes averaging a 0.4 and 2.7 million viewers, meaning it is currently the lowest-rated scripted series on the network.”
