The series, which was originally supposed to debut in the spring, has done okay behind America’s Got Talent on Tuesday nights. The Night Shift slipped to a 1.2 demo just a few weeks back, but has recovered nicely and put up a 1.4 demo this past week. Through those six episodes, The Night Shift has averaged a solid 6.71 million viewers.
The medical drama was renewed for a fourteen episode second season, with a return date yet to be announced (although a summer date is expected).
In addition, The CW has made a change to its summer schedule. TMZ-backed Famous in 12 has been pulled from the schedule after only five low-rated episodes. The series followed a family trying to become famous in twelve weeks, with the help of social media. Famous in 12 debuted to a meager 610,000 viewers, with its most recent episode notching a mere 470,000 viewers (and an 0.2 demo).
No official replacement has yet been announced, but for at least the foreseeable future, repeats of Arrow will fill the timeslot.
