LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Discovery's struggling series "Hogs Gone Wild" is heading back to its old home: Sunday nights.
The freshman entry drew 1.459 million viewers and a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 this past Tuesday, another sharp decline from its lead-in "Deadliest Catch" (3.577 million, 1.7 rating among adults 18-49).
Discovery originally launched "Hogs" on Sundays at 10:00/9:00c in January but quickly pulled it after three weeks. The series was then subsequently relaunched in the aforementioned Tuesday, 10:00/9:00c slot on April 19.
"Hogs" will now air on Sundays at 9:00/8:00c beginning May 8 behind newcomer "Wild Animal Repo" at 8:00/7:00c, the premiere of which was been bumped up to said date.
