There are more changes coming to Wednesdays. Cancel anything you’ve read here in previous posts.
Next Wednesday May 7 stands as is, but May 14 everything is changed again.
Wed May 14:
7:30pm Fire 000
8:00pm Search and Rescue
8:30pm Movie: Hitch
10:55pm Life of Grime.
Hell’s Kitchen moves to Thursdays 8:30pm from May 15 replacing Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares (UK -it was moving into repeats). Canal Road is gone -at least until there is another amendment that may or may not bring it back. Great treatment for a new Aussie drama.
The planned Madeleine: A Year of Mystery; Her Parents’ Story will now screen earlier on Sunday May 11 at 10:30pm across all Nine networks for 75 minutes. It replaces a repeat of Crime Investigation Australia.
So there you have it (for now). Gordon Ramsay, sensibly slips back to two nights a week, but Nine and Seven both go toe to toe with Wednesday night movies, while TEN benefits with a handful of new House episodes. Wouldn’t be surprised to see Seven return to one hour dramas in this slot sooner rather than later. But which shows?
Nine will also have State of Origin matches on May 21, June 11 and July 2.
Canal Road is still valuable to Nine for local quota points but may have to wait until non-ratings season.
Update: Canal Road returns 10:30pm Wed May 28.
