Nikita is on the move!

Starting Friday, Nov. 30, the Maggie Q spy drama is shifting back to 8/7c, The Futon Critic reports. The slot is curreny occupied by America's Next Top Model, but the current season will wrap up Nov. 16 before Nikita takes over.

Repeats of Arrow will fill Nikita's present 9/8c time slot until Jan. 18.

The schedule-swap comes in the midst of Nikita's current struggle with ratings. Season 3 premiered to less than a million viewers, down 50 percent from last year's opener.
