Kings, Reaper, Tudors, Dwarf News

Despite positive reviews, ratings for NBC’s “Kings” have been poor enough that the network is pulling the show from Sunday nights. The remaining eight episodes of Kings will air on Saturday nights at 8PM starting April 18.

Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, the creators of The CW’s struggling paranormal comedy “Reaper”, have signed a deal to develop television shows for 20th Century Fox TV. The show’s future has been in question since its return a few weeks ago to poor ratings – this effectively has proven the final nail in the coffin.

Various high-profile shows are ‘on the bubble’ right now and could effectively be officially cancelled in the next few weeks. These include Chuck, Dollhouse, Life, My Name is Earl and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

In brighter news, the third-season debut of Showtime’s “The Tudors” on Sunday night effectively matched last year’s premiere and finale. Showtime tallied 1 million viewers for the show’s two airings Sunday evening. When you add 400,000 On Demand viewers, the network is looking at 1.3 million for the debut.

Also this Good Friday kicks off the return of the classic sci-fi sitcom “Red Dwarf” on British cable channel Dave. Ten years on since its last episode, the three-episode return entitled ‘Back to Earth’ runs over the Easter weekend.
