While the main channels fill up with repeats and alternative programming over the two weeks of Easter non-ratings, GO! has managed to program some new content from next week, including new (to free to air) episodes of Chuck, season 16 of The Bachelor and unaired episodes of Top Gear Australia.
Chuck airs on Monday night (April 2) at 11.40pm, with the first episode of season three Chuck Versus the Pink Slip. Meanwhile, season 5 is underway on FOX8, and available in HD (and Chuck looks brilliant in HD – worth the money for the HD package just for Chuck in HD!).
The Bachelor will air at 7.30pm Tuesdays and Wednesdays from April 3. This is the 16th season of the show. GO! never aired the 15th season.
New episodes of Community find their way into Thursday nights, at 8pm. Suburgatory, on the other had is in repeats during Easter, with new episodes possibly to return from April 15.
Rumours on Facebook suggest new episodes of Fringe will air in GO! soon, as will the new series of Spartacus. Not holding my breath though, those rumours have been around for months.
The remaining few episodes of Top Gear Australia that Nine never aired will play out on GO! in the usual Top Gear USA timeslot of 6.30pm Saturday from April 7.
Meanwhile, with Excess Baggage finishing Thursday March 29 (sighs of relief can be heard), Two and a Half Men return to 6.30pm Monday to Thursday and Australia’s Home Videos to 7pm those days.
Still no sign of Survivor: One World on either Nine or GO! Hoping for after Easter?
