We are not done yet with programming changes today!
Another one from ELEVEN – this time, Saturday nights get reworked – and they need it! Changes take effect from Saturday Feb 5.
Saturday night is ELEVEN’s worst night of the week in ratings, which is not good seeing it is also Ten’s worst night of the week, and ONE without AFL, barely manages a blip in ratings figures – an all round bad night for the Ten network. So the question must be asked – what were they thinking with Hogan’s Heroes and Get Smart on Saturday nights anyway? Did anyone think these shows would work in prime time?
Predictably, Get Smart has now also been dumped from Saturday nights on ELEVEN.
Instead, another ex-GO! show Frasier, coupled with Everybody Loves Raymond – in some programming looking more like something you’d see on GO! will now fill Saturday nights. Yes, if Nine episodes a week of Raymond are not enough, here are another two for you – why – that’s ELEVEN episodes a week now of Raymond (in prime time)! At least there are 10 seasons of it to get through!
Saturday nights (from Feb 5) on ELEVEN now looks like this:
6.00 Family Ties
6.30 Everybody Loves Raymond
7.00 Everybody Loves Raymond
8.00 Everybody Loves Raymond
9.00 Everybody Loves Raymond
Don’t get the reference to GO programming? Until recently, here is what GO had planned for Sunday nights:
6.30 The Middle
7.00 The Middle
7.30 The Big Bang Theory
8.00 The Middle
8.30 The Big Bang Theory
9.00 The Middle
GO!, of course, have since amended the Sunday night line up to 2 Middles, 3 Big Bangs and a Two and a Half Men in that order.
Programming subject to change.
