Well TEN just blinked on its “3 week advance schedule” already with at least two programming changes.
You were scratching your head wondering why Women’s Murder Club was going back to Episode 1 on Friday nights, right? This didn’t make any sense. The show wasn’t exactly a ratings bonanza, and more tellingly, it isn’t even in production anymore.
Instead the network has decided to pick up where it left off, with the first of three unaired episodes. “Father’s Day” will air at 10:30pm on Friday February 6th, bumping NZ drama Orange Roughies out.
So that means episode one planned for February 20th is now most unlikely.
Other changes by TEN include the return of unaired Army Wives eps beginning 12:55am Tue Feb 3 (Mon night) with “Hail and Farewell.” It continues at 12:30am the next day.
At least TEN is trying to find homes for unfinished dramas for fans.
TEN also moves Out of the Blue on Sunday February 1st to 12:30am (Mon morn) but it appears to be once-only, denoted by “special time.” No word on what’s on at 6pm that day, something with a bigger lead in to Biggest Loser perhaps?
All this moving of a stripped soap, from nightly to weekly, to late nights, continues to be an unsatisfactory resolution for this problem.
