It certainly isn't good to be king if you're a new NBC series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has moved its brand new drama series Kings from Sunday nights to Saturday nights, effective this week.

The show's Sunday night timeslot will be replaced with an extra hour of Dateline, which actually posted better ratings than the first year drama, with a 1.5 rating in the half-hour before the latest Kings episode, which only managed a 1.1 rating this past Sunday.

The eight Kings episodes that remain this season will now be seeon on Saturday nights at 8 PM ET, beginning on April 18.
