    According to the tv guides, Criminal Minds is returning Wednesday with season 7.

    My prediction – Titantic will premiere on the 100th Anniversary of its ill-fated voyage – Sunday 15th April. It will follow the premiere of Dancing With The Stars.

    Downtown Abbey series 2 will fill the Titanic slot afterwards (it’s from the same makers, so fits well). There are 1 or 2 more episodes than needed (4 eps + 8 eps) to supplement the Dancing slot of 10 eps I think. A 2-hour premiere or finale of Titanic or Downton would tie it all up very nicely. Let’s see!

    re: Sports Fever
    They announced at the end of the show tonight that tonight’s show was the season final, and the show will be back ”soon”. Also tonight, they announced on their facebook page that it was their season final.

    Working Dog must have done a ”’10-episode-no-matter-the-ratings”’ sort of package with Seven. Hopefully it airs later this month in some capacity.

    I’m beginning to think Titanic will be across 4 Sundays.

    i would imagine wednesday night will b another AGT followed by more Titanic.
    i think Titanic will follow Dancing

    Sports Fever will be gone sooner than you think. Unfortunately not enough eyeballs watching.

    Now added.

    Did you get overwhelmed with comments or just busy? ‘Cos I hope nothing was wrong with my previous comment here.

    P.S. Thank you for fixing the other comment David. :)

    Jordan: Seven has not confirmed Titanic timeslots. Anniversary is April 15.

  10. Jordan.T April 2, 2012 at 1:12 pm -

    Wait, I’m confused now. When is Channel Seven going to broadcast the Titanic miniseries? I thought they were broadcasting it next week for the 100th Anniversary? It would be ridiculous to broadcast it after…. can someone please explain to me?

  11. A. April 2, 2012 at 12:42 pm -

    If Titanic is on Sunday I might watch it but on Wednesday it would depend if Fringe is on a certain other channel.

    But I’ll admit I was hoping to find out when Once Upon A Time was going to be on. I selfishly hope not 7.30pm Tuesday. But don’t mind Sunday or Wednesday at that time. Even though I like to watch ABC or SBS on Sunday. I really hope it doesn’t end up clashing with Fringe.

    TAR on Wednesdays is probably a good hint.

    I am wondering where they’ll slot Amazing Race Australia, it worked well at 8:30 Mondays last year.

  14. Guy April 2, 2012 at 10:55 am -

    Interesting news. Talent on Mondays sure changes things. Could Once Upon a Time be slotted in at 7:30pm Tuesdays? I mean Seven has dominated this timeslot for so long with reality and Once is huge in the US. It would be a good night for the show.

    As for Titanic the series has been labelled “Rubbish” and “Terrible” by a lot of people on forums in the UK. Seven might be having 2nd thoughts? I am presuming it will air Sunday at 8:30pm and again on Wednesday 8:30pm.

    @ MuchoTB I whole heartedly agree! The Ch7 push for reality shows, really does show their reliance and love for Reality!
    Dramas always get shafted, it used to be All Saints after DWTS. But surprisingly they are being kind to Rafters. Hopefully to keep viewers happy and to preserve/promote Aussie Drama. This paves the way for Winners and Losers in the 9:30 timeslot.
    Revenge is popular enough to survive the 9pm start time. As demonstrated by recent late starts after MKR.

  16. MillerT1 April 2, 2012 at 10:33 am -

    Would Seven play a double Titanic on Logies night considering that DWTS will probably go until 9pm and therefore Titanic until 11pm. I know that Logies goes until 11:00/11:30 but I would think people would be more inclined to stay up and watch Logies than Titanic.

  17. kitkat April 2, 2012 at 9:51 am -

    They’re showing repeats of the eps involving Emily from Criminal Mind’s last season this week at least, so I’m wondering whether that may be coming back?

  18. ricoz April 2, 2012 at 9:43 am -

    So we still have a gap at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on Wednesdays? Any chance of Amazing Race Australia for one of these slots?

  19. ricoz April 2, 2012 at 9:42 am -

    @roaringdave This is because its Easter in the US, we are only a few days behind and they are taking a 1 week break

  20. roaringdave April 2, 2012 at 8:38 am -

    I noticed there is no The Amazing Race this week…why remove a show in non ratings that barely rates anyway?

    Yay for Parenthood return but damn it why the double ep, it’s only going to hurt the over all ratings… I guess they want to ‘burn’ it off for other shows in case it doesn’t make a return for S4 in the US.

    Good to see the Rafters will be back, yes I not they said it would be after Easter. But what of W&L, will Seven show half the Rafters season, or less. Then rest it for W&L? I think W&L needs a different night, it rates well and should be a good lead in for other shows. 9:30 after the Raters (once PH ends) would be a waste.

  23. MuchoTB April 2, 2012 at 5:19 am -

    I expected Titanic to be slotted at 8:30 this entire week – so 7:30 is a nice surprise

    A bit annoying that they keep shafting Revenge, their highest rated US import, for cheap reality crap like MKR, and now AGT it seems
