A&E got used to its scripted dramas being immediate hits and was clearly disappointed that Those Who Kill, a new crime drama with Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny, was a miss. The network has pulled the show after just two episodes.
Those Who Kill was scheduled to air Mondays at 10 p.m., notes Entertainment Weekly. The serial killer series will be replaced by Bates Motel, which is in its second season and is still drawing in viewers. Unfortunately, not many of the viewers who were watching it at 9 p.m. were staying around for Those Who Kill.
Deadline reports that the first episode only drew 1.4 million viewers, a sharp decrease from Bates’ debut, which drew 3 million last year. Longmire also scored a much bigger premiere, with 4.1 million viewers.
The show’s second episode drew just 830,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating in the key 18-49 demographic.
A&E executives are hoping to find a better place to put Those Who Kill, Deadline notes. It’s not known when a relaunch would happen, but A&E will likely find some way to air all 10 episodes of the show.
A&E hasn’t decided what will replace Bates in the 9 p.m. Monday slot.
Sevigny was nominated for an Oscar for Boys Don't Cry and was recently seen on The Mindy Project.
