Ian McShane, Kings

Kings has been dethroned by cops.

NBC is expected plug in John Wells' new police drama Southland in the Thursday 10 pm /ET slot following the finale of the 15th season of the Wells-produced medical drama ER, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The heavily promoted (butterflies everywhere!) new drama Kings, starring Deadwood's Ian McShane, was originally scheduled to air in the coveted ER slot. Now, Kings is said to be moving to Sundays at 8 pm/ET — as a lead-in to The Apprentice. (How soon will Trump ask to be called the "king" of the boardroom in promo spots?)

The Peacock recently picked up three additional episodes of ER and picked up six episodes of Southland, fueling talk that it may keep the Thursday at 10 pm slot Wells-branded for the rest of the season.

Are you going to watch Southland? Are you bummed Kings will be on Sundays?
