I have to say, that at our house, there is next to nothing that airs on Saturday nights on free to air that we record or watch on the night.
Ten have given a bit of a reprieve – finally moving away from movies repeated 5 times a year on the night to new content including Undercover Boss (US), The Graham Norton Show, and An Idiot Abroad – this week saw Karl hit Australia with another thing to do before you die – swim with the Dolphins. Meanwhile, anyone who missed the Shakespeare inspired special of Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation on Ten last Tuesday – and based on ratings there’d be a few – were able to see it again on ONE at 7.30pm.
We finally got around to watching the first two episodes of Suburgatory – now the only show we really sit down and watch on GO! Now hooked and can’t wait for the next episode tonight. There were some moments reminiscent of the Stepford Wives, and a stupid scene covering the idea of women with implants floating on water – but other than that, not a bad show at all.
Raiders of The Lost Ark on Seven, 7TWO had nearly three hours of Taggart – what’s with all the double episodes on 7TWO these days? 7mate was all blokey docos with Mighty Structures, Mega Breakdown, Super Factories, etc!
Nine – you can always count on Funniest Home Videos on Saturday nights at 6.30. Later in the night, The Wedding Singer – a movie sometimes on GO! played, while GO! itself had Looney Toons Back in Action, National Lampoon’s European Vacation, and another Alcatraz encore at 10.30pm – this time on time.
Accused on ABC1, replay of Adam Hills on ABC2, followed by old movies, Monster Moves and Rockwiz on SBS ONE.
What do you watch on Saturday nights on TV? Anything? Do you use Saturday nights as a way to catch up on what you haven’t had time to watch throughout the week? Tall us your thoughts!
