Only half of that is true. The show NEVER went to a different night, it was a Saturday night staple for its entire run. What did happen was that it moved an hour earlier to 8:00 for season 7. I still remember the commercial advertising that with its cowboy song and animation..."Movin' movin' movin', Golden Girls are movin' to 8:00 on Saturday night! Empty Nest is movin', it's 9:00 we're usin', " (and then I don't recall the last line.

So the move out of its 6-year 9:00 time slot was the major factor in ratings dropping.
