Nine programming moves in mysterious ways – no doubt about that – as next week, The Voice will only play on one night, over two hours. The chosen night for a single airing of The Voice is … ?
Monday night May 7. At 7.30pm. Following The Block, which continues 7pm weeknights and 6.30pm Sundays.
The Voice is followed by Person of Interest at 9.30pm.
Which leaves Tuesday nights to return to Nine’s mix of sitcoms – none of which do that well anymore, other than The Big Bang Theory.
Tuesday May 8 looks like this:
8.00 Big Bang Theory rpt
8.30 Big Bang Theory new (why not the new episode first?)
9.00 2 Broke Girls new
9.30 2 Broke Girls new
10.00 Two and a Half Men new
10.30 Kitchen Nightmares USA
11.30 Nine News Special on the Federal Budget.
I will say now, I’ll be VERY surprised if this night actually remains as scheduled above (especially seeing tonight when I posted this article, that a 2 Broke Girls episode suddenly appeared after The Voice, when it was to be two repeat Big Bangs, which in turn had replaced Survivor….)
To Wednesday May 9 and it is Celebrity Apprentice at 8, followed by two repeat episodes of The Mentalist from 9.30pm. Celebrity Apprentice also airs at 8pm Thursday, before The Footy Shows play.
Friday night NRL has Brisbane Vs Manly at 7.30pm, followed by Bulldogs Vs Gold Coast at 9.30pm (Nine NSW & QLD, GEM VIC, SA and WA).
Still absolutely no sign of Survivor: One World on Nine or any of its channels. By the time this week starts, 12 episodes will have aired in the US. Even if they played one every night from May 13 onwards, they’d still wouldn’t catch up to the US by the time the finale airs.
Survivor fans – beware of spoilers, or [censored*] in order to see the show.
Correct as at May 1, extremely subject to change.
* insert [find a friend in the US] of course, what else would I have meant here!
