SHOW TRACKER: AMC takes on Saturday nights with 'Hell on Wheels'

AMC is getting into the Saturday business.

The network announced Monday that it was moving its third-season western drama "Hell on Wheels" to Saturday nights beginning Aug. 3...

... Branching out into another night makes sense. The network is set for the return of "The Killing," along with new series "Low Winter Sun," in June on Sunday nights. But Saturday nights? Wait. There's a reason for it.

The network has long celebrated the western genre through movies and reruns on Saturday nights, so it's looking to build off the established audience tuning in. To usher in its push in the night with original programming, AMC will air the miniseries "Lonesome Dove" and, for the first time on the network, its sequel, "Return to Lonesome Dove," before the 9 p.m. ET/PT premiere of "Hell on Wheels..."

Hell on Wheels cast includes Anson Mount, Common, Colm Meaney and Dominique McElligott.
