The second Whizz Kids Millionaire episode will air, while the Closing Ceremony of the Olympics screens live in the daytime with an evening replay.

Subject to change.


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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”?

  7. 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?

  8. “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

    • 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!

  9. 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.
