1. Seven will now add a Saturday version of Weekend Sunrise from 7am – 9am Saturdays. That means that Saturday Disney will move to 9am. The move is no doubt in response to the fact that Nine’s Today ratings are closing in on Seven’s Sunrise on a daily basis. Nine suddenly introduced the Saturday edition of Today around the same time GO launched to a very negative reaction. By Seven having Sunrise at the same time, the chance for viewers to jump ships on Saturday to Today is minimised.
2. 7TWO will air the Sopranos from Tuesday Feb 16, at 9.30pm after 24. The Sopranos was one of the shows promised to come to 7TWO when it launched in November.
3. Still on 7TWO, US drama Kings, starring former Home and Away actor Christopher Egan, will be the channel later this month. It will air at 10.30 Wednesdays from Feb 24.
4. Medical drama Mercy starts on 7TWO on Wed Nov 17 at 9.30pm after Lost. Mercy was bumped out of Seven’s schedule due to low ratings back in October 2009.
5. If you have missed anything on Seven, and don’t have the internet usage available to use the 7PLUS catch up service, than check your guides for numerous encores and repeats of Seven’s new shows on both 7TWO and Seven. Last weekend saw many Seven shows repeated on both 7TWO and Seven, with the two My Kitchen Rules episodes airing three times last week for example.
6. Lost - which premieres on 7TWO Wed Feb 10, will also be seen on Seven at 11.30pm for those who don’t have digital. But the double episode will be split up meaning that Seven viewers will be a week behind 7TWO viewers. Lost fans, time to get digital TV!
