More changes from Nine.
Try and keep up with me here…!
OK – tomorrow night – Wed Dec 15, The repeat of CSI: Miami at 10.30pm has been replaced with a repeat of Cold Case.
Considering there is now new CSI: Miami at 8.30pm, then new CSI: NY at 9.30, the repeat of Miami at 10.30 did not make sense to remain on the schedule any way.
So – from tomorrow, Wed Dec 15, Wednesday nights on Nine are:
8.30 New CSI: Miami
9.30 New CSI: NY
10.30 Cold Case repeat.
Were you one of the 398,000 or so that watched – and perhaps enjoyed – Chase last Sunday night on Nine? Then did you feel rewarded that there was another episode straight after it that you did not know about it until that night?
Well – bad news for you.
Chase – thanks to low ratings – yes 398,000 is too low for 9.30pm on Sunday on a primary channel even if it is summer – is now gone. Not sure where it will now end up – hopefully somewhere on GO or GEM for those that were following it – but then again, even GO and GEM are having their schedules stripped of anything not performing to the strict requirements of Nine Network execs or programmers… or whoever is making the actual decisions there.
Fringe has gone from GO, Nikita as well a few weeks ago, Rizzoli & Isles gone from GEM. The list goes on.
Anyway, back to the point.
Chase, 9.30 Sunday on Nine is now replaced with the three part / two hour per part series The Commander. The Commander will be seen at 9.30pm Sunday Dec 19, Dec 26 and Jan 2.
Just yesterday, we reported that Myth Busters was coming to Nine, taking over the time slot that was occupied by Survivor Nicaragua – which has its finale Tue Dec 28. Some readers questioned whether Nine had secured the rights for the popular show from SBS – who also are still screening Myth Busters.
Myth Busters will not be seen on Nine on Tue Jan 4. Instead, a repeat of 50-1. The “Super Sized” version of 20-1 which always seems to pop up on Nine each year around Christmas / New Years. It’s the 50-1 of All Time Greatest movie Quotes. “Play it again, Sam”. And Nine are.
That’s it for today’s changes at Nine.
Big time disclaimer:
All programming information is subject to last minute change. Most recent programming posts supersede older ones. Sometimes I may go back and edit some of them to reflect latest changes but may not always get the chance.
In any case, it I probably a good idea to check EPGs or internet guides on the day. The 10.30 Wed Dec 15 change for Nine is yet to show up on any guides as I publish this post. It should do so before the end of the day.
