Channel 9 has again changed their Tuesday night line up after the worst performance this year on a Tuesday night so far. This week, Tuesday night (August 4) is as follows: at 7.30 is 20-1, which is followed by a double episode of Two and a Half Men at 8.30. Then after that, is Commercial Breakdown at 9.30, followed by Ramsays’ kitchen Nightmares at 10.15.
On Sunday August 2, the last Random Acts of Kindness Airs. That will be replaced by the return of Domestic Blitz at 6.30, August 9. Also on Sunday August 2, 9’s new locally produced police drama Rescue Special Ops airs at 8.30.
On Wednesday August 12th, 9’s factual series on organ donation called the Gift returns at 9pm. RPA is still on at 8.30 but drops back to being a half hour show.
The new series Drop Dead Diva will have a split premiere. In Sydney and Brisbane, the show starts at 9.30 on Monday August 3rd. In AFL markets (Vic, SA, and WA), the show will be held over a week so as not to clash with 7’s finale of Brothers and Sisters, one week behind in those states due to a Monday night AFL game a little while ago.
Farmer Wants a Wife returns Monday Aug 3 at 8.30pm.
GO starts Sunday August 9 at 6.30pm on digital channel 99 (NBN its 88, Win 80).
9HD has cut down breakaways in the lead up to GO. The daytime breakaway ceases this week, meaning that the View, Ellen and ET can all be seen in HD. 9HD break away shows will all be seen on GO in any case. It is yet to be seen if there will actually be any more 9HD break aways once GO is up and running. At least all shows on 9 main made in HD will be seen in HD.
