Over a month into the new TV season and none of the networks have had to bring down the ax on an under-performing freshman series. However, ABC is moving in that direction with Ten Days in the Valley.
Despite the star power of series lead Kyra Sedgwick, Ten Days has been a bit of a bomb on Sunday nights. The network has just announced that, effective immediately, the series has been banished to Saturday nights.
As TV fans know, a move to Saturdays is never a good thing. However, with the low ratings being posted by the show each week, it's not that much of a surprise.
What's even worse is the fact that new episodes won't begin continue airing for more than a month. While the series is leaving Sunday nights this week, it won't debut on Saturday until Dec. 16.
Episodes 5 and 6 will air back to back on Dec. 16, beginning at 9 p.m. Then, new episodes will air on Dec. 23 and 30, both at 10 p.m. On Jan. 6, ABC will air the final two episodes back-to-back, beginning at 9 p.m.
In the place of Ten Days in the Valley, ABC is set to air back-to-back original episodes of Shark Tank at 9 and 10 p.m. ET. That schedule will run through November 12.
