    Very much looking forward to these new shows on ABC News 24. i think they need more titles for the channel otherwise its just repeats of Australian Story and Landline ect.

    @Phoenix727 I think Grandstand, which starts next week, will essentially be the Friday edition of the Drum. I’m guessing that’s why it has been dropped.

    Grandstand & Planet America have my interest, my question is Planet America is on @ 6.30pm, what does that mean for the Friday edition of the Drum?

    Although I guess Grandstand is doing the job of the Friday Drum every night.

    So what will Ten call their weekend version of ‘Breakfast’ should they go ahead with one?
