March 11 (UPI) — CBS says it is moving the late Bill Paxton‘s freshman cop drama “Training Day” from Thursday nights to Saturday evenings.

“Training Day” will air in its new 9 p.m. timeslot, starting April 8.

The small-screen follow-up to the 2001, Denzel WashingtonEthan Hawke movie of the same name debuted in February.

All 13 episodes of the show’s first season reportedly were filmed before Paxton died on Feb. 25 from a stroke following heart surgery. He was 61.
