    Saw an ad on GO! saying they’re going to play The Last Ship, although I’d bet real money GO! doesn’t actually end up playing it.
    To be clear it’s something I would watch.

    Hey David,
    watched the last two live games of the Asian Cup on ABC (and looking forward to the final). Wondering why they went to a promo break at half-time and straight after the game before coming back to studio analysis? Just like a commercial sports coverage.
    I thought under the ABC Act they couldn’t have an in-show breaks. It seems to be creeping in as a house style – it was on the NYE broadcast as well.
    Are they softening up the audience?

    Channel 10 there is a current problem with your tenplay windows phone app. The app no longer registers that it has an internet connection and is therefore unusable. There are multiple comments in the windows phone app store discussing this issue and I’m surprised this has not been addressed earlier. Hopefully this can be fixed before new eps return next week.

    @BarrieT

    Thanks for the info re ABC News24!
    I found it when it was first listed in the IQ, and was very disappointed when I clicked on it and was given a message to update to HD to see it.
    I doubt I’d have gone back again, so wouldn’t have known it was now available to non-HD subscribers.
    So thanks!

    Just Saw a Promo for New Aussie Mystery Winter that’ll air Tomorrow Week at 9:00P.M. on Seven, That’s One Cat out of the Bag. Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays are still Undecided.

    Rebecca Gibneys show “Winter” premieres Wednesday Week at 9:00pm, I didn’t expect that timeslot.. But I’m sure it will do good with a MKR lead on. Like all the upcomming shows

    Thanks for the info on Cordon, I enjoyed Salamander so will check it out.

    Didn’t see this elsewhere but GEM are now advertising Monarch Of the Glen starting tomorrow night 7.30, if anyone other than my parents are interested!

    How much promotion does TEN have to do for their new show “I’m A Celebritie, Get Me Out Of Here” ???
    The promo’s are on every commercial break, enough is enough, Ten

    New Grey’s Anatomy starts on Seven next Tuesday 3 Feb at 9pm with a double episode.

  10. Pertinax January 27, 2015 at 2:14 pm -

    After announcing Longmire S3 and then failing to show it for 6 months, Gem started running it at 10:40pm Australia Day!

    I hate using Jumpin.

    @glennc: Ten’s programming for Thursday 12 Feb:

    7:30 I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here
    9:00 Gogglebox
    10:00 Law & Order: SVU (repeat)

    No sign of Madam Secretary yet….:(

    What is going on with 7 tennis telecast today? They spent the last 24 hours advertising Williams v Radwanska only to show the mens game instead ?? Why have they stopped using their second channel to simulcast the games. I was just on 73 and they advertised that the tennis would be on 72 from 4pm EST and yet it wasn’t and hasn’t been all day.

  13. glennc January 26, 2015 at 4:27 pm -

    @tvf At a guess, I’d say Ten’s Thursday night will be:
    7.30 I’m A Celebrity….
    8.30 Madam Secretary
    9.30 Gogglebox

    Gogglebox is airing at 9.30 on Lifestyle on the Wed, so I assume Ten will air it 24 hours afterwards.

    @tvf
    Bones ceased rating well enough to hold a Sunday slot several season ago, after Bones and Booth hooked up and there was no UST.

    It’s also suffered from the fact that they have made over 200 eps following the same formula, the episode budgets have been cut to fund staff salaries while the ratings have fallen in the US.

    It’s still rating well enough to get renewed, with syndication revenue, so long as Fox and the cast can agree a price.

    @Pete

    It will be interesting to see what tens plans are for Thursday. They have been promoting Gogglebox for Thursday nights. Not sure if they have plans to schedule an episode of I’m a celebrity get me out of here on Thursdays. Also wondering if they will stick to 8.30pm Thursday for madam secretary. Hope they don’t plan to delay madam secretary’s return.

    @Pete
    Ten has run SVU on Monday nights before, when they haven’t had anything else.

    Monday is an important night but as 4th network everything that Ten puts there dies a horrible death. So they will put SVU on and hope that it attracts people not interested in contest shows or the ABC’s current affairs and chat lineup.

    It is unlikely to lose more money than what Ten have done in the past.

    ABC News24 is now available on Foxtel basic package on channel 642. It was previously only available to HD subscribers.

    Grrrrrr….Not Happy….all programs say Escape to the Country….but durn tennis is still on…. >:(

  19. Pete January 25, 2015 at 7:42 pm -

    Surprising to me that Ten is putting the new season of Law and Order SVU on Monday nights rather than its usual home for a decade of Thursday nights. Good luck with that decision.

    Also happy to see the return in a new series of Wilfred Sunday week around 10.15pm after the movie on Eleven.
