NEW YORK (AP) — Brian Williams‘ “Rock Center” newsmagazine moves this week to its third time slot in less than six months.

NBC insists the show is in no danger of cancellation despite low ratings.

“Rock Center” will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. Eastern time, an hour earlier than it had been airing. From the show’s Halloween premiere through the end of January, it was shown on Monday nights.

The show got off to a fast start with Bob Costas‘ surprise interview with former Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who denied child sexual-abuse allegations against him.

But in six of its last 10 airings, it failed to reach even 3 million viewers.

NBC News executive David Corvo said Monday the network will give it time and bring it back next fall.
