TEN’s plans for a Sneak Peek of The Shire next week are now out.
A 10 minute look was originally scheduled for 8:20pm next Wednesday May 16.
But it’s now out, and it isn’t yet clear if it will be rescheduled.
In its place TEN will begin Offspring at 8:15pm next week. I really hope all these extra-length episodes of Masterchef give the network what it is looking for. At the moment their durations range from 30 mins to 60, 70, 75 etc.
Call me crazy but I think this just confuses the audience waiting for the next show and they will either ignore them or PVR them and migrate towards something else that is more consistent.
If you can’t tell a story in 60 minutes and you need 70, maybe the problem is in the editing booth or the office of the executive calling the shots?
