Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn’t “After the Olympics” mean the time when the Olympics have completely finished – closing ceremony and all?
Nine are using “After the Olympics” to promote a number of shows at the moment. 60 Minutes is being advertised as returning after the Olympics, but, it will actually return on Sunday, February 28 at 7.30pm, after Domestic Blitz at 6.30pm.
Given that the closing ceremony of the Olympics is March 1, our time, the night of Feb 28 is not quite “After the Olympics”. Although, one could argue, that it is close enough given that the majority of the competition is over by then anyway.
That, however, cannot be said about Millionaire Wizz kids – a 2 hour show using the same format as the original “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” with school kids answering the questions in an attempt to win a million dollars for their school. Millionaire Wizz kids will air at 7.30pm, Saturday Feb 27, after Australia’s Funniest Home Videos which airs at 6.30pm Saturdays. It is currently being promoted as “After the Olympics”.
On Monday, March 1, Nine will play the closing ceremony of the winter Olympics live during the day, and replay it at night at 10.30pm. At 9.30pm, Monday March 1 on Nine is a new episode of CSI: Miami.
Definitely after the Olympics: Tuesday March 2 at 9.30 at this stage is “TBA”. It is the most likely timeslot for Survivor: Heroes and Villains.
Tuesday March 2, 7.30pm is a new ep of Top Gear. At 8.30, is a previously aired ep.
Wednesday March 3, sees new Cold Case at 9.30 and new Without a Trace at 10.30pm. Thursday March 4 at 9.30 will be a Mentalist repeat, following Adults Only 20-1 (why is it still on?) at 8.30pm. 10.30 maybe CSI: NY, but not sure on that one yet.
UPDATED: The TBA for Sunday Feb 28, 8.30pm is the telemovie “Wicked Love” – the story of Maria Korp, played by Rebecca Gibney.
