It was all set to premiere on Tuesday night.
Nine had even sent out preview disks for review.
But Nine has now pulled Survivor: One World from the schedule next week, replaced with replays of, yep, The Big Bang Theory. That seems to be an apt phrase for shows that have been zapped by Nine.
Nine was already long overdue with launching the series -the eleventh episode has already aired in the US, making Spoilers a real headache.
At the start of this year Nine’s Michael Healy told TV Tonight, “I’m a big fan of Survivor, it’s been no secret. Last year it’s overnight numbers weren’t bad but it does extremely well in catch-up. Almost 70% of its audience in catch-up. We certainly hope to have it on air very soon, but I can’t confirm if it’s a Nine or a GO! proposition at this stage. But we’d like to get it to air as soon as possible.”
There is some speculation the show may be moving to GO! but Nine has not responded to enquiries about a new start date for Survivor.
