Kings‘ Sunday bow had what the Hollywood Reporter calls “a devastating premiere,” coming in as the lowest rated network show not just in its own timeslot, but for the entire night between 8 and 11pm; only six million viewers watched Ian McShane’s debut turn as America’s King Silas, all but guaranteeing that it’ll disappear sooner rather than later. Maybe they should move it to Fridays; six million would’ve made it the fourth highest rated show of the evening last weekend.

    Figures. Hubby and I caught the last half by chance, and we were very intrigued. Loved your earlier post about it, but now I suspect the low ratings will create a self-fulfilling prophecy. If the audience- real or potential – believes the show will get cancelled due to low ratings, then it won’t watch, because who wants to get all involved in a doomed series??
