What's written in the stars for "Still Star-Crossed" isn't looking so good.
The new ABC period drama hasn't made its mark so far like other Shondaland hits, and after three low-rated episodes, the network has decided to move it from Mondays to Saturdays starting July 8. That doesn't bode well for the future of the series; it will lose its "Bachelorette" lead-in, and "Still-Star-Crossed is already only averaging 1.95 million viewers per episode in live-plus-same day Nielsen ratings, as reported by Variety.
A period drama, "Still Star-Crossed" centers on the Montague and Capulet families after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The story is based on Melinda Taub's novel of the same name, which was published in 2013. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have caught on, and it may soon suffer a fate similar to that of the Shakespearean lovers.
Only time will tell what lies ahead for "Still Star-Crossed," but we don't expect its new time slot to help its quest for better ratings.
