“We can’t give away too much,” Kalantzis, 27, said. “But it is what you could call a fish-out-of-water reality show.” Toroman, 28, added: “It’s all about us. It’s always about us.” Continue reading »
Here it is – Ten programming for the week September 2-8, 2012 – up late due to the risk of programming changes. The only news is new NCIS on Sunday night – Sept 2, while repeats remain on Tuesday night – the shows’ traditional night for new episodes in recent years. Continue reading »
In recent weeks, Ten’s ratings have hit an all time low. Everybody Dance Now failed to connect with audiences and was promptly dumped from the schedule. I Will Survive, with ratings now in the 300,000′s is following the same path. The Shire is now even lower – not helped though by multiple timeslot changes, while Being Lara Bingle could almost be considered a success compared to how things are going now. Don’t Tell the Bride also is not exactly setting the ratings world on fire – settling over 500,000 so far. Continue reading »
UPDATED. With Everybody Dance Now gone, Sunday night sees an episode of the Simpsons, Modern Family repeats, some Graham Norton and an NCIS repeat. Ten seem to have taken Shrek from Nine, with the first of the Shrek movies airing on Saturday night. Continue reading »
A Current Affair has obtained exclusive video of a knife attack and bashing of The Shire stars Vernesa and Sophie at a Sydney shopping centre.
Vernesa and Sophie have gotten into a screaming punch-up and knife fight. The two reality stars were having coffee when a woman abuses them and lunges at them with a knife (Vernesa also has one in her hand), they are then dragged out on to the footpath where the stoush continued and turns into an all out brawl.

Ten will be hoping the new Australian content they have poured so much into over past months will start to pay off in ratings. The network has been left for dead in 2012 by Seven and Nine.

UPDATED. Ten’s line up for the week August 5-11, 2012 includes the one hour finale for Being Lara Bingle which airs on Tuesday night August 7. The Shire moves to Wednesday night only, while Ten plays the last five House episodes in the one week, concluding on Friday night. Continue reading »
Not that much happening on Ten during the first week of The Olympics other than Masterchef All Stars, Being Lara Bingle and The Shire. Oh – and House fans – possibly the most messed around TV show fans of 2012 – you get a double helping of House on Wednesday night – and yes, I waiting to post this programming information in case Ten changed their minds again! Plus an extra House on Thursday night Continue reading »
The practice of shows starting later than the time advertised on Seven, Nine and Ten is seriously getting out of hand now. A show advertised for 9.30 sometimes will not start until as late as 9.53pm, an 8pm start could mean anything up to 8.20, while an 8.30pm start these days really means 8.45 or even later.
While most of us can handle a few minutes of variance in start times, passing off a show that ends up starting at say 8.45 as being advertised for an 8.30pm start is misleading to viewers and unfair to those trying to plan their nights’ TV viewing.
