After just one week Nine has pulled Parade’s End from its Wednesday schedule and moved it to GEM at 9:30pm as a double episode.
It will be replaced with the Movie: Sherlock Holmes (2009).
This week the show rated just 453,000 / 322,000 for its two episodes.
While the drama was slow even before the commercial interruptions, the problem here is a bit of a dog chasing its tail.
Audiences are reluctant to commit to shows if they do not trust the network will keep it on air, and networks cannot keep a show on air when not enough viewers are watching.
