    Does anyone know what has happened to CSI? I see NY and Miami scheduled but the original one seems to have just disappeared in the middle of its new season? Please help!!!

    Viewers watching the olympics are gettings a taste of Eddie Maguire and Mick Molloy’s yet-to-be-announced Monday night sports variety show, as Mick joins Eddie in Vancouver behind the commentary desk.

    I reckon that V will go into Wednesdays 8:30 and then when that is finished Hey Hey It’s Saturday will take it’s place.

    That is the exact reason that no one wanted Top Gear on Nine. 7:30 Tues prob ont have TG and something else instead. Absolute BS Nine!

    When is the Apprentice coming back?! Easily Nine’s best show of 2009.

  6. Jamie February 16, 2010 at 1:06 pm -

    @ Lewis. I’d watch that lineup! Hopefully Survivor gets a good slot when it returns.

  7. Lewis February 16, 2010 at 12:25 pm -

    How about:

    7.30 Survivor
    8.30 Underbelly
    9.30 V

    No good?

  8. Dino February 16, 2010 at 10:47 am -

    Those TBA’s are probably the highlight of the schedule.

  9. Craig February 16, 2010 at 8:06 am -

    Come on Ch9, lets not miss the boat on Survivor Again!!! US is onto episode 2 this week. There’s alot of people out there who will be watching this season being everyones favourite heroes vs villians from past seasons.

    why would you put Cold Case at 9.30pm instead of 8.30pm. there is really no need for RPA this early in the year.

  11. Alex February 15, 2010 at 10:14 pm -

    @anthony – if you include commercials in Wicked Love’s time then it comes to 120 minutes.

  12. David Knox February 15, 2010 at 10:13 pm -

    Might see what I can find out. Nine has indicated it’s coming this year. Might be good for Easter?

  13. Eden February 15, 2010 at 10:09 pm -

    Why haven’t Nine aired the episodes of Celebrity Singing Bee with the very entertaining Tim Campbell they have locked in the vault.

    It was a fabulous show and seems such a waste when they put so much rubbish on.

    Is it true that if they don’t air the episode then they don’t have to pay the prize money to the charities.

  14. Paul February 15, 2010 at 9:29 pm -

    The Nine network also needs a new schedule change so here it is all the same except for: 1:00pm Entertainment Tonight (PG) 1:30pm Hi-5 (G) 2:00pm The View (PG) 3:00pm The Shak (G) 3:30pm Antiques Roadshow (G) 4:00pm The ARIA Music Show (PG) 5:00pm News 5:30pm Hot Seat (G)

    Nine Network definitely needs to get rid of Days of Our Lives and get itself improved.

  15. Billy Matthews February 15, 2010 at 9:29 pm -

    i doubt there schedule will look anything like this but i reckon it should look something like this:
    Sun: 630-Domestic Blitz 730-60 Mins 830-Underbelly 930-Human Target
    Mon:730-2.5 Men 800-Big Bang Theory 830-The Mentalist 930-CSI Miami
    Tue: 730-Top Gear 830-V 930-Survivor
    Wed: 730-The Real Hustle 800-Customs 830-RPA 930-Cold Case 1030-Without a Trace
    Thur: 730-Getaway 830-CSi 930-CSI NY

    Interesting to see Mornings with Kerrie-Anne’s name shortned.

  17. Craig February 15, 2010 at 7:26 pm -

    As long as the printed and online guides are up to date they can keep their TBAs I mean seriously what is the point of publishing a list of what will be on if 7 TBAs in the first week in prime time?

    I understand they don’t want to tip their hand but they also don’t want to wait too long as many still rely on the weekly printed guides.

    Any way enough of that, any news on V or any of the other news shows which Nine promoted the crap out of and have gone quite all of a sudden? Also any chance they will air the UK drama series “Survivors”?

  18. anthony February 15, 2010 at 7:02 pm -

    Wicked Love may go Tuesday 8.30. It’s only 90 minutes duration, whereas the Sunday slot has 120 minutes space.

  19. mikeys February 15, 2010 at 6:34 pm -

    what an amazing lineup, so different to last years crap…

  20. Axel February 15, 2010 at 5:26 pm -

    Channel 9 can take their time with Heroes & Villains as far as I’m concerned. It’s a bit of a let down considering all the hype.

  21. Stephen H February 15, 2010 at 5:21 pm -

    Why does Cold Case need a repeat at 10:30 finish up the Without a Trace episodes I mean didn’t it rate well at 10:30. Why can’t this station do anything right?

  22. Ruddeger February 15, 2010 at 5:20 pm -

    So it looks like Without A Trace has been boned again

  23. David Knox February 15, 2010 at 5:14 pm -

    Both Nine and Seven issue Guides with TBAs, and increasingly a few red herrings in my opinion. As we know there’s a lot riding on this kind of info, and it’s all taken a shift in the last few years since a few online sites have taken Programming so seriously and made the info public. No names of course!

  24. Andrew February 15, 2010 at 5:11 pm -

    “Nine has released details of its programming for the week of February 28, when the Olympics winds up.”

    To me it looks like Nine has only announced a whole lot of “TBA”.

    Why did they even bother sending this out? A blank page would tell as much information

  25. Tony Scott February 15, 2010 at 5:10 pm -

    Surely Top Gear would remain on Tuesdays at 7.30 – probably a new ep then an old at 8.30. I’m also guessing that Survivor will end up Tue 9.30.

    V on Sunday at 8.30 might be a good idea as I think there are 4 Sundays including Feb 28 until non-ratings for Easter – which means they could show the first 4 eps that have already aired in the US, and start the newer ones after Easter.
