NBC is replacing freshman drama Kings on Sunday nights, yanking the struggling allegorical series after four episodes. Kings will be swapped out for another hour of Dateline, which will now run for two hours starting at 7 p.m. […] The remaining eight episodes of Kings will air on Saturday nights at 8 p.m. starting April 18.
‘Cause what television really needs is more Dateline. Bloggers [here, here and here] smell “cancellation” around the corner, Saturdays being the hospice of dying shows. With this and Leno taking over the ten-spot, I’m not sure what the future holds for teledramas on NBC.
