Channel 9 broadcasted a Test Cricket Match between the Australia and the West Indies from Adelaide Oval. James Brayshaw didn’t commentate Australia-West Indies match. I believe that Ian Healy and Mark Taylor were in Adelaide during the third Test.
Over on WIN, they showed new episodes of The Price is Right. This came when Channel 9 ceased production of TPIR, although they showed repeats of episodes over the 2005-06 summer period.

As far as I remember, James Brayshaw wasn’t involved with Nine’s cricket coverage until the 2010s

New episodes of Dr Quinn at 9:30am on Nine? Too bad for NBN and WIN viewers.

Jerry Springer’s FTA premiere on Ten.

Interesting to capture this primetime FTA premiere of Springer, this was also a time where you could see several episodes a day on Foxtel, Late ‘98 was probably peak Springer mania at the time.

Also interesting Capital prioritised MASH repeats over Neighbours, swapping their order compared to Ten’s broadcast, so Neighbours aired 90 minutes earlier on Capital at this time. Meanwhile, NRTV aired MASH at 7pm, swapping Seinfeld onto that 6pm slot.

Also forgot about Prime running Today Tonight the next morning to fit in their local news at 6pm.

Didn’t know Pokemon started airing here in '98, PokeMania wouldn’t hit until '99 so I guess it hadn’t blown up yet.

I noticed that Channel 10 have revived its sport game show, It’s a Knockout during the summer ratings. This show was being sponsored by McDonalds throughout the summer run.

I wonder if Seven’s special Everything You Always Wanted To Know About The Law was a local production or if it was replaying the HSV7 special from three years earlier :stuck_out_tongue:

This was non-ratings time so it might have been some easy filler for a Friday night?

EDIT: It is the same program, but airing in 1981 as a repeat
