Airdate: Eastwick. Bumped: Community

By David Knox on May 24, 2010 / Filed Under Programming 18

Axed TV drama Eastwick, the small screen adaptation of The Witches of Eastwick, is coming to GO! next month.

It will air from 9:30pm Tuesday June 8th, following The Bachelor: London Calling “Where Are They Now?” at 8:30pm.

This means Community will shift to 8:30pm Monday June 7 followed by repeats of The Inbetweeners.

Hell’s Kitchen airs at 9:30pm with Nip / Tuck at 10:30pm (it’s back tonight).

South Park repeats air on both Monday / Tuesday at 11:30 / 10:30 respectively (hopefully somebody has actually watched them to check they are ok with the content).

Eastwick had 13 episodes produced with Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price, Jaime Ray Newman and Paul Gross but was axed after 6 eps aired.

    @ Tristan, yes it can. MA15+ is 9pm, AV15+ is 9:30pm

    @ angelsgal and APM, it’s best to wait to see what Nine’s doing to Monday. If The Farmer Wants a Wife is moving back there, then these moves make a lot of sense.

    @ J Bar – Networks can’t please everyone with programming changes, there are always going to people with whom they disagree with. In my case, The Inbetweeners clashed with QI on Tuesdays, but I didn’t complain about it. Don’t expect that every show you watch is going to be free of clashes, we live in a country of 22 million after all.

    @bindi – I don’t see why not since they have aired all 13 else where in the world. Now I can get all 13 eps clean with credits, thank good GO! doesn’t mess with them unlike Nine!

    I agree it’s not the best show in recent memory but still worth a watch to see the pretty leading ladies!

    The UK aired all 13 episodes. In US they aired eps 1-10, then 12 as the series finale.

    are they expected to air all 13 episodes on GO?

    @ APM,

    Programmer’s have more of an idea than you do. How would it make sense to put Hell’s Kitchen (a Gordon Ramsay program) on @ 10:30pm Tuesday nights on GO! when there’s Kitchen Nightmares (another Gordon Ramsay program) on @ 10:30pm Tuesday night’s on Nine already??

    Community is actually a really nice show, surprised it didn’t at least get a run on C9

    Moving it on a Monday seems a good fit seeing Tuesday at the moment is chock for of decent shows (24, Survivor, NCIS)

    thats stupid, surley Eastwick could air at 8:30 monday instead of swapping with Community and Inbetweeners. whats wrong with having Bachelor at 9:30 mondays? they now play South Park every weeknight at 11:30, couldn’t they get rid of the 10:30 – 11:30 showing and put Hells Kitchen tuesdays at 10:30. programmers don’t know what they’re doing!!

    When was The Bachelor:London Calling season shown?? Why is there a Where are they now when we haven’t seen the season yet??

    Surely I didn’t miss it!!! :(

    Great news for Eastwick!

    IMO it was just finding it’s feet towards the middle when the axe fell, it’s a shame as it could have been a great show and who doesn’t like looking at that cast :)

    FYI episode 10 was the last to air in the US, leaving the UK to pick up the slack and air the final 3 episodes first. Also Eastwick was shot on the same backlot that was Stars Hollow on Gilmore Girls.

    Yes.

    Is The Middle and Old Christine still on ?

    Happy with Community and the inbetweeners moving to monday, it was clashing with 24.

    bad decison from Nine, they should of kept there tuesday night comedy block in tact. Eastwick could of replaced The Vampire Diaries which would of left a few weeks before Season 2 starts in Sep.

    Community and The Inbetweeners were perfect on Tuesdays but clash with Desperate Housewives and Good News Week on Mondays now.

    Poor Community. It gets even less programming love than 30 Rock…
