Here are the latest results of TV Tonight‘s Late List trial, a crowd-sourcing destination for you to name the shows that never start on time.
In December there were only 29 entries:
Amongst the entries filed were:
The Amazing Race: Advertised time: 10:30pm / Actual: 10:47pm
Escape to the Country: Advertised time: 8:30pm / Actual: 9:03pm
Homes Under the Hammer: Advertised time: 9:45pm / Actual: 9:55pm
CSI Advertised time: 10:32pm / Actual: 11:02pm
The Big Bang Theory Advertised time: 8:30pm / Actual: 8:36pm
Problems Advertised time: 9:03pm / Actual: 9:07pm
No doubt the number of entries is affected by less eyeballs watching the box in summer, but as the List was a trial running until the end of 2012 ratings I will keep it going a little longer to see if its purpose is warranted. I’m endeavouring to do my bit to give the audience a platform to keep networks sticking to the clock, but if there isn’t enough interest it will be discontinued.
I will keep it running through January and February to see if the numbers pick up with the return of ratings. Thanks!
