Fox’s ‘Rake’ To Exit Quietly With Two Episodes on Saturday

Fox, looking for ways to generate higher ratings on Fridays, has swept “Rake” to Saturday for its finale.

The first-year Greg Kinnear series, which opened in late January on Thursdays behind “American Idol,” was shifted to Friday in March due to low ratings.  Now, instead of airing its final two episodes on Fridays, the show is getting a two-hour sendoff this Saturday.

Last week, “Rake” mustered a mere 0.4 rating/1 share in adults 18-49 and 1.9 million viewers overall opposite college basketball on CBS.

In its place on Friday this week will be a repeat of last season’s finale of “Kitchen Nightmares,” which will serve as lead-in to the one-hour series finale of “Raising Hope.” Two-hour installments of “Kitchen Nightmares” will then air for a few weeks.
