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 evening from this Saturday, May 14. And the broadcast could quickly stop. Explanations.
The magic of Jason Bull no longer seems to operate on M6. Due to a lack of audience, the channel has decided to modify the programming for the sixth and final season of Bull from this Saturday, May 14. Before a pure and simple interruption of the broadcast within two weeks?
While it was originally supposed to broadcast two new episodes per week, M6 announced that it was finally going to air three new investigations per Saturday this evening. From 9:10 p.m., fans of Michael Weatherly will therefore 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 trust”, and “Jour de neige” will be offered by the channel, instead of episodes 5 and 6, as planned in a first time.
While M6 has given no explanation for this acceleration in the rate of broadcast of Bull’s final season, there is obviously reason to believe that the disappointing audience scores achieved by the launch of this sixth round last week in are the main reason.
Faced with Meurtres à Porquerolles and The Voice, the first two episodes of season 6 of Bull only brought together 1.12 million fans of psychologist Jason Bull and his team (5.7% of the public aged 4 and more). Scores down from season 5 which, broadcast on Friday opposite Koh Lanta, had at the time managed to gather nearly 2 million viewers.
On Saturday May 28, M6 will broadcast Arnaques, presented by Julien Courbet, instead of Bull. And we do not know for the moment if the series led by Michael Weatherly, Geneva Carr, and Christopher Jackson will then return to the air. Or if the followers of Bull will have to take their troubles patiently before discovering the last episodes of the series. As is the case for NCIS and the sequel to 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 continue to follow the series in case it does not return to M6 in June.
