The Ten Network has rushed new US drama Bull into its Sunday night schedule, after 24: Legacy, and Homeland have both flopped in the recent ratings.

Featuring former NCIS star Michael Weatherly, Bull will move into Sunday 8:30pm timeslot from March 5.

The move means 24: Legacy moves to 9:30pm, while Homeland is being moved back to 10:30pm from this weekend.

Despite massive promotion over Summer, last Sunday 24: Legacy held an average audience of just 294,000 viewers, while Homeland flopped to 129,000

Bull tells the story of Dr Jason Bull, a brilliant, brash and charming puppet master with an extraordinary gift.

Inspired by the early career of Dr Phil McGraw, the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting firms of all time.

Dr Bull is not a lawyer, but he can read a jury like a book. Using psychology, human intuition and high tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick, Dr Bull knows how a jury will vote, even before they do.

He employs a clever team of experts, charged with shaping the outcome of high-stakes trials down to the very last detail. Dr Bull’s combination of remarkable insights into human nature, three Ph.D.s and top-notch staff create winning strategies designed to tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favour.
