On Monday September 19, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm, is the first X Factor live performance show for this season. Over this two hour event, the top 12 perform for the votes of the judges and audience.
Then, on Tuesday night, September 20 at 7.30pm is the X Factor results show, where one will be eliminated in the first week to bring us to our top 11.
Wednesday night at 7.30 is (as predicted) World’s Strictest Parents, while Thursday night at 7.30 will be the return of Four Weddings. Friday night AFL commitments may push this back to an 8pm start in some states if they air double Home and Away in leiu of the Friday night episode not being able to air.
Or, like last year, Home and Away could become out of synch between markets, resulting in a triple episode catch up after footy seaosn concludes. All depends on the teams that make it through.
As already reported, Beauty and the Geek Australia season three premieres at 8.30pm Thursday Sept 22.
Speaking of AFL, The Brownlow Medal airs live in VIC & SA on Monday Sept 26, as well as prime time in WA. NSW & QLD can see it on 7mate.
The Brownlow medal will push the X Factor top 11 live performances back to Tuesday night (Sept 27), with the results show on Wednesday night (Sept 28). These states will also miss out on Body of Proof and Suits, which will end up as split market programming in later weeks, as both are scheduled to air on Brownlow night in NSW & QLD.
With X Factor airing on Tuesday night, top 11 means a two hour show – which means no Packed to the Rafters for Tuesday Sept 27. Dinner Date remains at 9.30pm that night, Hung at 10.30.
Thursday 7.30 for Sept 29 could be that Home & Away catch up I meantioned before or Four Weddings – that will be comfirmed later.
Beauty and the Geek episode two will air Thursday Sept 29, 8.30pm.
