Genre TV Grid: June 5-11 – Syfy moves Hunters out of prime time in apparent burnoff

Genre TV Grid: June 5-11 – Syfy moves Hunters out of prime time in apparent burnoff

Scripted genre TV schedule for the week of June 5-11, the 1st full week of the 2016-17 season.*

No finales or new or debuting programs this week. But, SYFY moved Hunters from 10 p.m. to midnight on Mondays, replacing it with old movie reruns.

This is a classic no-confidence vote SYFY, a sure-fire sign the  network is burning off episodes of the series, which is all but cancelled, as a move out of prime time and into a time slot many cable nets are airing infomercials means its low ratings will not be counted against SYFY.
