TEN has slotted The Simpsons back into 6pm Sundays, leaving Out of the Blue just to run at 5:30pm, instead of the one hour it had.
You’d think they would have dumped it entirely by now, it’s no way to treat a stripped soap. Except after 5pm they get local quota points for it (which TEN sure can use).
By now the network should have sorted out a better solution to this dilemma. Either stick with the show somewhere where it works for them and the audience or bite the bullet and give up the quota points. Real fans would still watch it earlier or later in the schedule.
And here’s an idea. TEN has four channels on air right now. There are no requirements in local quota points as to WHICH channel it has to air on. TEN could air a string of eps on it secondary channels, get the points and keep (some) fans happy.
How about it TEN?
