Season three of Sons of Anarchy is set to have its free to air premiere on ONE 9.30pm April 25. In the episode called So, the kidnapping of Abel has left the Sons reeling, especially Jax, whose grief sends him into even deeper turmoil about his future with the MC. Gemma, having been framed for murder, stays on the run.
Following Sons of Anarchy at 10.30pm will be new series The Good Guys. Pilot. While on a routine investigation of a stolen humidifier, Detectives Dan Stark and Jack Bailey stumble upon a much larger crime involving drug smugglers, hired assassins and a golf bag full of cash..
New episodes of Burn Notice continue to air at 8.30pm Wednesdays on ONE.
Between ELEVEN and ONE, from April 15, there is alot of new content on offer – a refreshing change to the usual mix of movies and repeats that dominate most digital channels these days.
Problem is, without encores of the shows that air in prime time on digital channels, these shows are fighting for audience with main premium content on the main channels as well, and ultimately do not ever reach their full audience capacity resulting in shows being moved or dropped from the schedule.
Look no further than GO! for an example of this problem, with the channel essentially devoid of all the new content it used to air. Shows like Vampire Diaries, Nikita, Pretty Little liars to name a few were once at the core of GO!’s line up but have now been on sold to Foxtel.
Programming correct as at April 5, 2012. Subject to change.
