After three low-rated episodes, ABC is moving its new series Still Star-Crossed to Saturday nights. The period drama, from Shonda Rhimes' Shondaland production company, premiered late last month to very little fanfare and mixed reviews.
The show's first episode garnered just over 2 million viewers and a 0.5 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic. By its third week viewership was down to 1.6 million with a 0.3 rating, ranking it last against its Monday night competition.
Still Star-Crossed takes place after the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet, following the escalating rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues. When Rosaline Capulet is betrothed to Benvolio Montague against her will in an attempt to end the bitter feud between their families, the two seek to find a way to prevent their arranged marriage as well as the destruction of their families.
The show's remaining episodes start back up on Saturday, July 8.
