Brian Williams’ Rock Center newsmagazine moves this week to its third time slot in less than six months.
NBC insists the show is in no danger of cancellation despite low ratings.
Rock Center will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m., an hour earlier than it had been airing. From the show’s Halloween premiere through the end of January, it was shown on Monday nights.
The show got off to a fast start with Bob Costas’ surprise interview with former Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who denied child sexual-abuse allegations against him.
But in six of its last 10 airings, it failed to reach even 3 million viewers.
NBC News executive David Corvo said Monday the network will give it time and bring it back next fall.
‘Glee,’ ‘Girl,’ ‘Hope’ to get new seasons
Fox renewed several series for the fall TV season on Monday.
The musical drama series Glee will return for a fourth season, network president of entertainment Kevin Reilly said in a statement.
Freshman comedy New Girl will get a second season in the fall. Also returning is the comedy Raising Hope, which will mark its third season, according to the statement.
The series will join already-renewed Bones, American Dad, The Cleveland Show, Kitchen Nightmares and The Simpsons on the network’s 2012-13 schedule.
The network is slated to present its full schedule in May.
