People continue to support bad television…
News came in late Thursday that A&E has already pulled their new series “Those Who Kill” after only two episodes, while “Bates Motel,” which has become absolute trash (and I was a fan of the first season), continues forth with its second season. Why people support bad television is beyond me…
THR explains, A&E is pulling Chloe Sevigny drama “Those Who Kill” from the schedule.
The freshman detective drama based on the Danish format and inspired by Elsebeth Egholm’s books will be pulled from the schedule effective immediately. A&E will move sophomore drama “Bates Motel” back an hour, to the 10 p.m. slot, to replace “Those Who Kill.” A new time slot for the latter is to be determined later this week, as the network likes the show and has faith that it can find an audience. A “Bates Motel” repeat will air at 9 p.m. and lead into a new episode of the Psycho prequel.
Paired with the second season of the network’s critical darling “Bates Motel,” “Those Who Kill” opened March 4 to a lackluster 1.4 million viewers. That’s almost half of the 3.07 million viewers who tuned in an hour earlier for the debut of “Bates Motel’s” second season. “Kill” notched a 0.5 in the key adults 18-49 demographic — nearly a third of “Bates'” 1.6 million. Kill shed almost half its premiere viewers with Monday’s second airing, drawing 830,000 total viewers and a 0.3 in the demo.
