‘Quantico’ Moving to Mondays, Takes ‘Conviction’ Slot

ABC’s counterterrorism drama “Quantico” is heading to Mondays starting Jan. 23, Variety has confirmed. The Priyanka Chopra-starrer will take the 10 p.m. slot that is currently home to the underperforming “Conviction.”

The “Quantico” writers tweeted out the news Sunday night after the conclusion of the mid-season finale.

The move away from Sunday isn’t unexpected. What was once a promising night for ABC has taken a turn for the worse this season, with “Once Upon a Time” falling well below its prior season average, and “Secrets and Lies” and “Quantico” attracting under 1% of TV watchers in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic in Nielsen’s live-plus-same day ratings. “Quantico” was an initial bright spot last season in ratings of all stripes — live, delayed, and those C3 ratings that matter to advertisers — but while it continues to show impressive percentage gains in delayed viewing, it’s starting from a much lower base, with recent episodes weighing in with a 0.7 in the demo and well under 3 million viewers. The series premiere in 2015 garnered a 2.3 in the 18-49 demo in Nielsen’s C3 ratings, which measure commercial viewing done within three days. The second season premiere drew a 1.6 C3 rating in the demo.

Season 2 is being shot in New York, a move that is saving the ABC drama 30% on its production costs.

“Quantico” is produced by ABC Studios. Joshua Safran, Mark Gordon, Nicholas Pepper, Jake Coburn and Robert Pepper serve as executive producers.
