‘View’ shifts

A&E moves talker, nabs good ratings on 'Wolfe'

NEW YORK — Reruns of “The View” on A&E have failed to attract enough viewers at 7 p.m. and 1 p.m., so the network is moving the show up to 6 p.m. and noon starting this week.

The good news for A&E is that in the first three weeks of its new season of original episodes, “Nero Wolfe,” with Timothy Hutton, is averaging a solid 1.9 rating in cable homes.

A spokesman for A&E said the network bought reruns of ABC’s hit morning gabfest — to reach more female viewers. But the 7 p.m. strip has averaged just a 0.4 rating in cable homes since it kicked off April 1, a far cry from the 1.4 average harvested by the previous occupant of the time period, “Law & Order,” which will be shifted back to 7 p.m. and 1 p.m.
