It really is becoming farcical now.
GO makes more programming changes that mean movies replace regular first to free to air episodes of shows like Gossip Girl, Chuck, Eastwick.
The 9.30 episode of Eastwick on Tuesday July 6 will be replaced with more Seinfeld – making for 4 episodes in a row. Tuesday July 13 sees the movie Beauty Shop at 9.30pm. Eastwick will still play, but only at 12.30am those nights – which are usually the earlier episode repeated. Hell’s Kitchen will follow the movie.
On Wednesday July 14, Chuck at 10.30pm will be replaced by the movie When a Stranger Calls. Chuck (at this stage) remains on after the movie, after midnight.
On Thursday July 15, the same thing happens with Gossip Girl – bumped out for the movie Snakes on A Plane from 10.35pm. Again, the later repeat remains – BUT – with so few episodes to go until season two is finished, why not play them out – maybe the final few on the one night?
Based on GO’s treatment of Gossip Girl, I would not be holding my breath waiting for them to them to air the third season.
Note that even these programming changes may change again and again before the actual night.
Now there’s a new idea for a TV channel – No programming – you don’t know what is on until you tune in. GO is heading that way. Fast.
