7mate yesterday decided not to proceed with Stargate Atlantis for the time being, having already pulled the show twice for reruns of The Event at 10:30pm Thursdays.
The show is now out of schedule, replaced with another rerun this week, and TBAs for upcoming weeks. They could yet be filled by more replays of The Event.
Earlier in the day the show was listed in a Press Release, talking up the success of the channel. So far the channel has been putting the runs on the board.
Seven’s Director of Programming and Production, Tim Worner, said: “What an extraordinary first week – the appetite for this channel is far more ravenous than we could possibly have hoped for. And 7mate itself is proving to be a hungry beast as well. It is eating into its opponents big time, completely devouring the other newcomer.
“The launch of 7mate has not just got a lot of eyeballs, it has served to really sharpen the definition of the brand and the composition of the audience is bang on target. And we are just getting started. 7mate is truly going to be man’s best friend.”
Upcoming movies on the channel will include: Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, X Men 2, The Ringer, Walking Tall, American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile, The Waterboy, Primeval, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, Starsky & Hutch, and Hot Fuzz.
Upcoming series include: Life After People, Great Escapes, Mega Movers, Trigger Happy TV, Stargate, Man v Food, Human Prey, Campus PD, Trapped, Built from Disaster and Greatest Ever.
