Training Day Cancelled Season 2 CBS Bill Paxton

CBS Banishes Training Day to Saturdays

Training Day just got saddled with the TV equivalent of desk duty.

CBS’ freshman cop procedural is moving to Saturday nights at 9/8c, starting with the April 8 episode, and will remain there for its remaining seven episodes this season. Season 29 of returning reality staple The Amazing Race will take over Training Day‘s Thursdays-at-10 timeslot, beginning March 30. (CBS’ coverage of March Madness will preempt the Thursday night lineup for the next two weeks.)

It’s definitely bad news for anyone holding out hope for a second season of Training Day, which stars Bill Paxton and Justin Cornwell as mismatched cops in a reboot of the 2001 Denzel Washington-Ethan Hawke film. Ratings have been weak so far, with this week’s episode dipping to just 4 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating.

Plus, Paxton tragically passed away last month after complications from heart surgery — so if a Season 2 did happen, it would require a major revamp. (Paxton did finish filming in December, though, so the rest of Season 1 won’t be affected.)
