Launched last week on M6, season 6 of “Bull” is already disappointing in terms of audiences. The channel has therefore decided to switch to three episodes per night starting this Saturday, May 14. And the broadcast could quickly stop. Explanations.
Jason Bull’s magic no longer seems to be working on M6. Due to a lack of audience, the channel has decided to change the programming of the sixth and final season of Bull starting this Saturday, May 14. Before an outright interruption of the broadcast in two weeks?
While it was originally scheduled to air two previously unreleased episodes a week, M6 has announced that it will finally put on the air three new investigations per Saturday as of tonight. From 21:10, Michael Weatherly fans will be able to discover episodes 3 to 5 of season 6, entitled “The Prince of Park Avenue”, “The weight of the crown”, and “The Bull King”.
While next Saturday, episodes 6 to 8, “In bad shape”, “Question of confidence”, and “Snow Day” will be offered by the channel, instead of episodes 5 and 6, as planned at first.
If M6 has not given any explanations for this acceleration in the pace of broadcasting the final season of Bull, everything obviously suggests that the disappointing audience scores achieved by the launch of this sixth salvo last week are the main reason.
Faced with Murders in Porquerolles and The Voice, the first two episodes of season 6 of B-ull have indeed gathered only 1.12 million fans of psychologist Jason Bull and his team (5.7% of the audience of 4 years and older). Scores down compared to season 5, which aired on Friday opposite Koh Lanta, had at the time managed to gather nearly 2 million viewers.
On Saturday, May 28, M6 will broadcast instead of Bull the program Scams, presented by Julien Courbet. And it is unknown at the moment whether the series led by Michael Weatherly, Geneva Carr and Christopher Jackson will return to the air next. Or if the Bull faithful will have to take their trouble in patience before discovering the last episodes of the series. As is the case for NCIS and the continuation of season 19.
Canceled after six seasons by the American channel CBS, Bull will end across the Atlantic on May 26. Season 6 is also available in US+24 in preview on Salto, which offers the episodes in VOST the day after the American broadcast. A good way to keep following the series in case it doesn’t return to M6 in June.
