By royal (NBC) decree: Let it hereby be known — from the halls of Shiloh to the hills of Port Prosperity — that Kings ain't doing so well in the ratings. As a result, the network has bumped the show from its Sunday time slot and is moving it to Saturdays at 8 pm/ET beginning April 18. An extra hour of Dateline will take over Kings' Sunday spot.

While a move to Saturday is never a good sign for a show's longterm health, an NBC rep confirmed that the network plans to air the series' eight remaining episodes. As for a second season, don't bet the kingdom on it.

As Ian McShane's Deadwood character might say: Motherf---er!
