I guess it was because it had already been discussed a fair bit in the relevant 10 News thread.

Yeah surprised it’s not on Peach

Glad this show has been moved away from the main channel. It was way too boring, repetitive, cringeworthy and cheesy. Feud was way better for Denyer.

I can’t help but feel that Mark/Andrew were hard done by with the axing of Pointless

I am also surprised that it hasn’t gone to Peach, as the lead-in to Neighbours, instead of repeats of sitcoms (currently Frasier).

I wonder how long it will be on Bold?

Oh didn’t realise I don’t read that thread too often

As TV Tonight points out, the show is in repeat mode now.

TV Tonight has also said that they have recorded enough new episodes up until April. So, if they are airing repeats this summer, they must be intending to air the new ones in Q1?

If this 10 News First experiment doesn’t work out then I assume they’d be going back onto the main channel

Well it’s a good opportunity to test the news at 6pm if they only intended of airing repeats oer summer anyway. If all else fails it will probably come back. I think though that just extending the News is a lazy approach. They should hace gone for a more current affairs style program or something. I’ve alwyas thought that an Entertainment or pop culture type news program (like an Aussie version of Entertainment Tonight) might work on Ten at 6pm.

10 tried the local version of E! News in the 1990s (hosted by Donna Gubbay) at 6pm but it flopped.

And Nine tried an afternoon edition of Entertainment Tonight and it flopped.

It is now 2019. Very differnt TV ladnscape. I just think something news but is not the same old thing and appeals to younger demos would better bridge the gap between the News and The Project.

Wasn’t it on Tuesdays at 8pm? Unless they tried it at 6pm as well.

I’m pretty sure E! News was a 7pm show.

I seem to recall it was 8:00pm once a week.

E! News was definitely at 6pm at one point.

Wednesday 8:00pm. NLA Trove October 1999:

It premiered Tuesday nights at 8pm with Donna Gubbay, a former Sale Of The Century gift shop model and Channel V VJ, and Nick Bennett but was moved within a couple of months to 8pm Wednesdays. There were rumours that Gubbay would be replaced by Charlotte Dawson during the first months but Dawson ended up joining the show as fashion reporter. The show underwent an overhaul mid year. Nick Bennett didn’t survive the revamp.

Look at that TV schedule. That is such a blast from the past and better than what we have today.
