And the Blind SpotIn a surprising but welcome move by Nine, 2 Broke Girls will be fast tracked to Australia with season 4 episode 1 airing Monday November 3rd at 10pm, followed by a repeat. The premiere episode aired October 27th in America, making us a week behind.

Monday November 3rd

10pm 2 Broke Girls (ep 1 of 22 in season 4)

Hawaii Five-OChannel 10 is returning a previously dumped show to its schedule and in the meantime dumping a new show from its schedule. From Wednesday night November 5, Ten will return Hawaii Five-O to the schedule with episode 13 of season 4. That means the new series Reckless is out of the schedule.

It is annoying that networks do not use multi channels to continue shows that have been pulled. Reckless could have made a seamless transition to One airing on Tuesday night November 4th at 10:30pm.
