The network most known for last minute programming changes and crazy schedule re-arrangements is at it again. Yet again, it is the networks’ miserable Tuesday night they are playing with.
Nine have decided to bring forward the final Ladette to Lady episode to next Tuesday November 17, airing after the regular episode at 9.30. That means two hours of Ladette in a row. It also means that Secret Diary of a Call Girl – only recently placed at 10.30 Tuesdays after replacing Moonlight is out of the schedule.
Also airing on Tuesday November 17, is the second Very Best of the Paul Hogan Show Special.
The following Tuesday, November 24, the variation of 20-1 called 50-1 (same thing, only a lot longer) will air with the subject being 50-1 Greatest Movie Quotes. Sounding similar to a 50-1 aired in 2007 called 50-1 Movie One Liners, the new name coupled with a few clip changes means that Nine do not have to call it a repeat even if it is essentially the same as the 2007 show.
Following 50-1 on Tuesday Nov 24, is the movie, the Castle – repeated once again. This will be the third time this year that the Castle will have been played on Nine. Once back in March, the week after the first series of Ladette to Lady finished (sensing the Déjà vu here?), and then again in May in memory of Bud Tingwell in May.
Some of my favourite DVDs don’t even get played this much in a year! Surely Nine could come up with something different?
In reality, Nine will not do well that night against the Packed to the Rafters season finale on Seven and part one of the final of Celebrity Masterchef on Ten as well as NCIS. Only the GO share with Survivor Tocantins nearing the end of its current rushed through season will help Nine from an embarrassing third for that night.
