After two weeks with lackluster ratings, “Those Who Kill” has found itself shelved by A&E.
The Chloe Sevigny crime drama, based on a Danish series inspired by Elsebeth Egholm’s books, will be yanked from the schedule immediately, THR reports on Wednesday (March 12). Season 2 episodes of “Bates Motel” will fall back an hour, occupying the now vacant 10 p.m. slot.
The network says a new time slot for the show will be determined soon, as they support the show and believe it will be able to find an audience — just, you know, not on Mondays at 10.
Paired with “Bates Motel,” the March 4 opener of “Those Who Kill” pulled in a moribund 1.4 million viewers, shedding nearly half of its lead-in audience of 3.07 million who tuned in for the return of the “Psycho” prequel. The freshman drama’s second outing fared even worse, pulling in just 830,000 total viewers
