I’m on leave at the moment and just noticed DOOL and Y&R are back on 9(gem). A quick google search says they finished in 2013 but my memory says it was way before that. DOOL finished first, followed a few years later by Y&R, which was at least ten years ago. Am I correct? Or does anyone remember when they finished on 9?
DOOL finished in 2013
Y&R finished in 2007
And didn’t that end well for them
Thank you. I obviously mixed up the two shows, but I do recall it being at least 10 years since I saw Y&R.
While the storylines are as strange as ever, it’s good to see so many characters from 15-20 years ago are still on these shows.
More than two years later
Nine have now acquired the rights to CI re-runs, starting from the very beginning. Airing late night Tuesdays after Poirot (i.e.) next.
Just saw a PRG promo.
Of course previously aired on 10 during 2000s, was popular and attracted ratings over 1m metro at its peak, but never quite as popular as SVU. Stars include Jeff Goldblum and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Not an “actual” Bond movie but a nice surpise inclusion
Not really a ‘surprise’ inclusion as Bond film distributor MGM has the distribution rights to this and the other non-Eon film Casino Royale.
The 21 Days Of Bond started this week.
9Gem will show season 5 of NZ comedy-drama Westside tomorrow night (June 1) at 10.30pm. It premiered on Three in June last year. A sixth and final season has since been commissioned.
Two more New Zealand shows will air next Sunday night, June 7. Season 6 of The Brokenwood Mysteries will be shown at 8.30pm, followed by the debut of Fresh Eggs at 10.30pm.
Fresh Eggs is a six-part comedy-drama series produced by Warner Bros Television Production for TVNZ. When it aired in NZ last year, the last two episodes were pulled from schedule in mid March in the wake of Christchurch terror attacks, and were not shown until two months later.
According to TV Blackbox, 9Gem will have FTA premieres of BBC documentary Earth from Space (narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor) and history docu-drama Spy Wars, hosted by Damian Lewis, from A+E Network UK.
Earth from Space debuted on BBC in April 2019, and is currently screening on BBC Earth on Foxtel and Fetch.
Spy Wars premiered in UK in September last year.
US crime drama Shades of Blue, starring Jennifer Lopez, has its FTA premiere on 9Gem next Monday (July 6) at 10.40pm. It ran on NBC for three seasons from 2016 to 2018.
Corday Productions, the producers of Days Of Our Lives, has notified cast and crew that they are gearing up to restart production on 1 September.
BBC missing persons documentary Reported Missing will have its FTA premiere on 9Gem in Sydney and Brisbane next Thursday week (July 16) at 8.30pm. Two seasons were made - three episodes in 2017 and five episodes in 2018.
So now we get an explosion of British factuals on our screens.
But with no British factuals, the networks will be accused of not having first-run shows on multichannels and just relying on repeats.
