Exiled. Dethroned. Long (Not) Lived the Kings. There's just far too many upsetting puns that can be attached to this news: NBC is pulling Kings from Sunday evenings effectively immediately.
Beginning April 18th, the network will burn off the remaining episodes on Saturday nights at 8PM. This also effectively means that it's canceled...unless the show miraculously becomes a hit on Saturday nights (probability=.000001%).
The most recent episode of the show received only 3.6 million viewers. Beginning Sunday, an extra episode of Dateline will air in its former Sunday timeslot.
Le sigh. I actually thought the show had been progressively improving and was one of the better new shows on TV lately.
