ModernFamily_Season5_CastIn the decade or more of television programming writing, the latest Channel 10 scheduling is definitely in my top 10 most bizarre decisions.

This Australian filmed episode could be the half hour that rejuvenates the series and restore it as one of the top American comedies on Australian television. The key was to be how and when the episode was scheduled. However, Ten has given this episode the most likely to not succeed slot – April 27th – the night of the TV Week Logie Awards and the first night of the new season of The Voice. Channel 7 have not revealed their hand yet, but the network will go big with everything rumoured from an extra episode of My Kitchen Rules, a special episode of Downton Abbey and even the much promoted Killing Field with Rebecca Gibney. Modern Family will be buried in this slot.

Even more alarming is that Network Ten will skip three episodes to get there. The last episode aired was ep 16 and the Australian episode is episode 20, with no more new episodes scheduled to air between now and then due to it being the non ratings Easter period. I have spoken to Network Ten whom have confirmed there will be skipped episodes and they assure Throng and viewers that the Australian episode is very much stand alone so nothing will be missed. They will then go back and play the ‘missing episodes’.

Skipping episodes and scheduling the series in the death Logies night slot – what are you thinking Ten?

My_Kitchen_Rules_LogoThese are the amendments for the week commencing April 20th on Channel 7. This period is the second of the two Easter non ratings period but Seven will still return My Kitchen Rules to the schedule, plus include new episodes of How I Met Your Mother, Revenge, Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and also return Suits and Homes Under the Hammer to the schedule. Look for the new Josh Hollaway series Intelligence to make its debut as well.
