    David thanks for the update in Nine. Their attitude seems a bit sort sighted, if they have a late change and people are not checking there EPG or watching promos carefully then they will miss the show and stop watching.

    I’m not saying everyone would come to a site like this and be informed of changes but it’s a start as often the people most interest in their show will visit sites like yours.

    Personally I hardly watch any shows on Nine anymore, been burnt too many times I’ve lost count. I don’t watch their news and can’t remember the last time they had sports on that I’ve been interested in.

    @ SaxyBre84

    Yes two to go

    @timothyd, I’ve seen that promo. I’m a Kiwi, I live in Sydney and wouldn’t have watched the show anyway but just had to comment – bloody Aussies ;) :) Over all the sheep jokes too! :D

    After tonight, have Ten and ELEVEN only 2 episodes left of The Simpsons current 25th season?

    9.47PM…I am on GEM…..they just advertised Midsommer Murders…Tuesday….this is the same show I am watching…been on since around 8.35PM…what is that?!?

  8. Pertinax July 29, 2014 at 9:21 pm -

    Any change of scheduling is going to annoy some people so Nine try to keep it as quiet as possible. They regularly disable the TV Guide on their website when they don’t want people to know what they are going to show. Rather than working to keep viewer happy they prefer to just try to conceal their annoyance.

    Information allows viewers to make informed choices and record things. Nine think that only viewers who sit down in front of their evening line-up matter. And they can find out what they are going to watch from the endless promos and pop-ops they are subjected to on the night.

    I wouldn’t take it too personally.

    Re Arrow: It’s no secret that Nine refuses to send me amendments.

    This is because they view such Programming stories as a negative. So they would rather you not know about the change than have me blog about it. As you know I don’t make the changes, and no other network takes the same view. This is despite me being able to write other balanced articles for Nine as reviews, interviews, news, ratings and set visits.

    It has been 3 years since Nine ceased sending me regular Amendments.

    I have recently asked Nine to clarify if they wish to be removed from my Programming section entirely.

    They are yet to advise of their decision.

    I appreciate readers advising me of changes you have noticed in Nine’s schedule.

    thanks, David.

    Just saw a terrible commercial for TARAu about a bogan contestant called Jarrod who uses the word ‘bloody’ all the time and it is really putting me off watching this new series. They even had a hashtag for this loser.
    It looks like they are really making it into an MRK format.

    I was very disgusted about Channel 9 pushing Arrow from 9:40PM to 10:45PM. This is due to throwing in more TBBT repeats. TBBT is always starting later than usual for Channel 9.

    Came here to say the same thing as Reyne. This must have been a very late change made this afternoon. Less than 24 hours (unless it’s due to a topical news item) notice is simply not good enough.

    I’d say they’ve been sent into a spin due the last few night’s worth of ratings.

  13. Rayne July 29, 2014 at 6:13 pm -

    Short notice programming change from Nine: Arrow has been bumped to 10.40pm from tonight (single episode). At 9.40 we have yet more repeats of – you guessed it – The Big Bang Theory!

    This change appears to be permanent with same programming next week too.

    For two days Nine News Sydney has been airing a report from their LA person (why LA is unclear) regarding an Ebola outbreak “that has moved to the Nigerian capital of Lagos”. A primary school child picked up the goof.

    I look at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games symbol and to me it looks really similar to the Masterchef symbol. Would that be sleek marketing or pure coincidence??

  16. BrookeP July 29, 2014 at 11:02 am -

    Yes Squareyes! Very funny!

  17. David Knox July 29, 2014 at 12:45 am -

    Mauboy was rumoured last year, I even asked Luke Jacobz about it.

  18. MuchoTB July 29, 2014 at 12:32 am -

    According to a UK news article on Jessica Mauboy is going to be a fifth judge on The X Factor Australia, with her mentoring the ‘wildcard’ category that will oversee four booted acts.

    This will also get rid of the ‘deadlock’ situation in eliminations. Interesting, if this is all true

  19. squareyes July 28, 2014 at 7:53 pm -

    Has anyone seen the preview of The Simpsons/Family Guy crossover ?
    I thought it was very funny and can’t wait to see the full ep.

  20. glennc July 28, 2014 at 6:40 pm -

    @Jason I’m well aware of the difference. My EPG suggests they’re encores, so I’ll go with that. By the way, annoys me as much as it does you!

  21. Jason July 28, 2014 at 5:25 pm -

    @glennc- It’s not an “encore”, it’s a repeat.
    (Encore: a performance added to the end of a concert)

  22. Angela July 28, 2014 at 5:15 pm -

    Thanks @Pertinax

    Hopefully 10 have the rights to Season 2 and will fast track SH like they did for Season 1.

    Fox in the US have scheduled the first block of 6 episodes of Sleepy Hollow S2. They start on 22nd of September.

    @ Secret Squirrel July 28, 2014 at 12:01 pm -

    @Maev….Sydney – just so long as you didn’t miss the last few!
    I did not….just thrilling….great to watch… :)

  25. glennc July 28, 2014 at 1:05 pm -

    Thanks Mr. Knox, I knew that you’d know!!

    Does anyone know if the episode of HYBPA? on Eleven tonight at 8.30 is new or an encore?
    I know Tom Gleisner said last week they’d be back in a fortnight but this episode has just popped up….

  28. Angela July 28, 2014 at 12:56 pm -

    Anyone know when the new Season of Sleepy Hollow starts?
    Average storyline and acting but I’m missing my fix of the gorgeous Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane.

  29. J Bar July 28, 2014 at 12:09 pm -

    A new low this week with a TV Week headline “I Sold Pot to Survive”. The story is about ex-Neighbours actress Adelaide Kane who now stars in Reign. It’s actually about one of the jobs she had before winning the role: “I worked in a medical marijuana dispensary for a little while – which is funny because I don’t actually smoke weed” Talk about misleading headlines. Why is TV Week becoming so tabloid and tacky?
