NBC moves 'Kings' to summer

Low-rated drama will return to schedule in June

NBC's "Kings" is on the move again, this time to summer.

After originally scheduling the midseason drama on Thursday, launching it on Sunday and moving it to repeat-laden Saturday night after four low-rated episodes, the contemporary King David drama has been pulled off the schedule.

Starting this Saturday, NBC will air reruns of "Law & Order: SVU," freshman cop drama "Southland" and "Law & Order."

"Kings" will return to its Saturday 8 p.m. slot June 13 and will finish its run through July 25.
