Fox moves 'Rake' to Saturday

Fox announced today that it was moving low-rated freshman series Rake from Friday to Saturday nights, effective immediately. The news confirmed what already seemed inevitable, that the show has been essentially cancelled.

Rake starred Greg Kinnear as Keegan Deane, a comically dysfunctional attorney who was struggling to hold his chaotic life together. The pilot episode was directed by acclaimed Hollywood director Sam Raimi, who is perhaps best known for directing a trio of Spider Man films in the early 2000s.

The Saturday night airings will burn-off the remaining un-aired episodes of Rake, a once promising comedy-drama that some thought would be a fitting replacement for the network's quirky hit House.

This is the second time the network has moved the show. Initially debuting on Thursday nights, Rake was shuffled off to Friday after early ratings began to disappoint. Fox might have left the show in its current Friday timeslot had ratings not declined even further in recent weeks. In fact, the program finished behind all other broadcast networks for the last two weeks, finishing even behind episodes of Whose Line is it Anyway? on The CW.

Fox will use Rake's former timeslot to launch a new season of Gordon Ramsay's reality series Kitchen Nightmares.
