So Nine only showed the Mercantile Mutual Cup in the morning and not the afternoon?

1 Like

If it was held in Sydney it might not have allowed the full day coverage there.

It was held at the SCG. According to the paper, WIN aired afternoon coverage from 2pm until 6pm.

Semi Final match, Blues won defending 224 minus their test stars who were in the Caribbean (they still had world cup players Shane Lee and Michael Bevan and the recently retired Mark Taylor in their batting lineup), then reduced Qld to 6/54 and they never recovered.

Coronation Street used to be at 5:30 pm but was moved to 4:30pm (due to Bert’s Family Feud).

NBN showing a different primetime movie for some reason. Quite common back in those days.

Bert’s Family Feud was yet another attempt by Nine to try and take down Deal or No Deal.

5 Likes

Bert’s Family Feud like Larry Emdur’s 2nd stint on TPIR never rated well and was axed after 2 seasons.

2 Likes

IIRC, Larry’s stint on Wheel of Fortune also didn’t rate well in 2006?

Though I do remember Seven promoted that and Deal or No Deal as the “Wheel and Deal” hour.

2006 saw Bert Newton (hosting his game show Bert’s Family Feud (which was the replacement for The Price is Right, where Larry Emdur jumped to the Seven Network). I wonder whether Wheel of Fortune ratings have improved with Larry Emdur hosting the show.

Didn’t Seven rest WOF when Steve Oemcke was host?

1 Like

From memory, not quite - Seven gave the show another chance in the first half of 2006 with Larry Emdur as host, before it ultimately copped the axe at the end of July that year.

Even though Western Australia was the only state observing the Labour Day Public Holiday, Midday US program, Jerry Springer has retained the M-classification.

Steve Omecke’s Wheel of Fortune in 2004 was also the Wheel and Deal hour with WoF moving to 5pm to make way for DoND. However it didn’t rate well and the show was rested the following year.
