January 19th marks something of a departure from summer viewing for Channel TEN.
As widely speculated, The Bold and the Beautiful will return to the 4:30pm timeslot. It will be replaced by Simpsons repeats.
When TEN moved B&B to 6pm it said it was an experiment. But the experiment seems to have under-performed. On Monday it managed 467,000 viewers, well behind Nine News with 1.4m and Seven News on 1.2m viewers.
No doubt there will be soapie fans happy the show is returning to its old timeslot, but other viewers who equally enjoyed the new timeslot.
Meanwhile, Neighbours will also return its 2009 season at 6:30pm.
From January 19 the schedule is
3:00pm Judge Judy
3:30pm Huey’s Cooking Adventures
4:00pm It’s Me or the Dog
4:30pm The Bold and the Beautiful
5:00pm TEN News at Five
6:00pm The Simpsons
