The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that "Those Who Kill" has been pulled from Mondays and "Bates Motel" moves to 10 p.m. Monday next week. An A&E publicist confirmed the move.

This doesn't yet mean the end for "Those Who Kill" as the A&E publicist also confirmed that the network will announce a new time slot for "Those Who Kill" within a few days. Still, re-launches rarely work once a series is seen as damaged goods.

Ratings for "Those Who Kill" did not improve with Monday's telecast of episode two; they got worse. Deadline.com reports the show's audience dropped from 1.4 million its first week (with a 0.5 18-49 rating) to fewer than 900,000 viewers in week two (with a 0.3 18-49 rating).
