Programming Amendments Update Wednesday April 6, 2011
1. Another Big Bang / Two and a Half Men swap on Nine.
Next Wednesday (April 13) at 9pm on Nine, will be a repeat of Two and a Half Men instead of The Big Bang Theory. Programming for the night now looks like this:
7.30 NEW The Big Bang Theory
8.00 NEW Mike & Molly
8.30 Two and a Half Men
9.00 Two and a Half Men
9.30 NEW RPA: Where Are They Now?
This, of course, is the night of the My Kitchen Rules finale and the Masterchef Media launch in Sydney.
2. Another Survivor Encore late Saturday night.
I don’t know why they don’t just program these in advance – we’re up to the 5th and 6th episode now, so anyone who is going to watch Survivor already is, while anyone who watches it on Tuesday night, doesn’t need to again on Saturday night. The encore will, of course, help anyone who missed out, but if it is programmed in advance, more people may chose to tune in on Saturday night, then some of those may come back to Tuesday night, thereby helping in ratings.
Anyway, this Saturday, April 9, the Survivor Redemption Island encore plays from 11pm.
3. The Big Two and a Half Bang Men Theory on GO!
Yep. Another change relating to these two Chuck Lorre sitcoms – two in the one day!
GO! loses some Big Bang episodes, and gains more Two and a Half Men episodes, while Nine is losing Men for more Bang.
This time, the change is for the 8.30pm Big Bang on Sunday (April 10) night to give way to Charlie Sheen, and the same also for Thursday (April 14) night with that night’s second Big Bang episode also giving way for some more Men. These changes are already in place for the following week.
