7mate on some nights are catching up to GO in ratings, and more often than not, doing better than its brother 7TWO. In an attempt to hopefully help the channel rate even better, Seven have made some major changes to the programming of 7mate, mostly after 9.30pm, effective next week.
Here’s the summary:
Mondays, from Oct 25.
30 Rock at 9.30pm will now be double episodes.
Parks and Recreation moves from 10.00pm to 11.30pm.
Boston Legal remains at 10.30pm.
Crank Yankers is out.
Tuesdays, from Oct 26.
My Name is Earl at 9.30pm will now be double episodes.
Punk’d moves from 10.00pm to 10.30pm and becomes a double episode.
Nitro Circus moves from 10.30pm to 11.30pm.
Strikeforce and Crank Yankers are out.
Wednesdays, from Oct 27.
My Name is Earl at 9.30pm becomes a double episode.
Punk’d at 10pm is out (well – actually moved to Tuesday night 11.00pm)
Chapelle’s Show at 10.30pm becomes a double episode.
Always Sunny in Philadelphia at 11.00pm moves to 11.30pm.
Again – Crank Yankers is out.
Thursdays, from Oct 28.
At 10.30pm, encores of the Event continue. I can now confirm – that although 7mate is a HD channel, the Event is NOT actually in HD. Looks like Seven don’t get the HD version.
At 11.30pm, Damage Control – which is in HD – replaces Crank Yankers. This is an encore of the first episode that was juts seen on Seven.
Crank Yankers remains at 11.30pm.
Sundays, from Oct 31.
Damage Control at 8.30pm means the Sunday movies now start at 9.00pm.
