With Extant hitting series lows in the ratings, CBS is moving the Halle Berry thriller to 9PM from next Wednesday, where it will trade places with Criminal Minds repeats and follow Big Brother.
The show appears to be in the last chance saloon as the network looks for ways to trigger a ratings revival.
