Programming Amendments Update March 29.
1. ACA Sunday.
Nine have confirmed that ACA Sunday will remain in the schedule for the next two Sundays April 3 and April 10. The previous three editions of ACA Sunday have been such last minute changes, that EPGs and even the next morning’s ratings did not reflect that the show was on.
ACA Sunday will be hosted by Karl Stefanovic, who, according to the Sunday Telegraph will remain host until a regular host can be found. Tracy Grimshaw, who hosts the weekday editions ACA, and hosted the first surprise ACA Sunday earlier in March, is not interested in the extra work, while Karl only plans to stay there until a permanent host is found.
Nine, however, have not committed to ACA Sunday for the long term and are watching how it goes. So far figures have been mixed, with the highest numbers reached – of around 1.2 million – for the school bully interview two Sundays ago.
Customs now will now air 7pm on Sunday April 3 and 10, and Send in the Dogs Australia is out of the schedule on those tow nights.
2. 7TWO Fridays 7.30pm.
As of this Friday, April 1, 7TWO will now be playing two episodes of Are You Being Served from 7.30pm. That’s My Boy, which was about to move into its second season, is now out of the schedule.
Are You Being Served also airs at 7.10pm Sundays and 8.10pm Tuesdays on 7TWO.
3. Dexter on ELEVEN
The season finale of Dexter airs at 9.30pm Monday April 4 on ELEVEN. From Monday April 11, 9.30pm, Dexter moves in to repeats – starting from the first episode, the Pilot.
