NBC has yanked a prime-time drama off the schedule and reconfigured a night of prime time. The network pulled the series “Taken” off the schedule.
The show has been moved to the summer slate, where it will finish out its sophomore season on Saturday nights. The run launches May 26.
In its place on Fridays, NBC will expand “Dateline” to two hours. The network indicated new original two-hour “Dateline” episodes are on tap for the next three Fridays, April 20 through May 4.
