40 years of television
I’m sure the Guide writers appreciated the inconsistency between WIN and NBN’s opt outs in the afternoon, like not agreeing on the order of TPIR/Sale, and which show to drop for What’s Up Doc?
WIN’s schedule seems better to me, Sale was the premium show so it made sense to lead into the news.
Sale of the Century: 40 Years of Television
It was also a Chance to Win a Home Viewer a Brand-New Audi A4 Automatic Valued at $50,980 Including On-Road Costs at the end of a 2-Night Grand Final on Sale of The Century (40 Years of Television) Glenn Ridge and Nicki Buckley.
Just a couple of months before it was axed.

I remembered that time when the Nine Network had the rights to the 2005 Brownlow Medal. Eddie McGuire was hosting the Awards, with Dennis Cometti doing voiceovers for recipients of awards. I noticed on WIN, they didn’t show the Red Carpet of Brownlow Medal.
Oh no, How would regional WA live without having seen the tedious red carpet nonsense.
Who would have been hosting Wheel of Fortune at this stage? Ernie Sigley?
Hmm… possibly. I am not sure when the changeover occurred to John Burgess. Ernie left to go to Nine in 1985 so this could have been close to the end of his run at Wheel.
EDIT: Ok, Ernie Sigley was still listed to be hosting WOF a week earlier, on 12 September 1984, so chances are he was still there on the 19th – https://televisionau.com/classic-tv-guides/tv120984
According to Wikipedia, John Burgess took over the reins in June 1984, so they may of still had a backlog of Ernie Sigley episodes still to air at that point or they were doing repeats for some reason.
I don’t actually remember Ricki Lake having aired on Ten, it aired on Seven for a number of years in a late morning timeslot.

Cheez TV showing Ren and Stimpy?
Yup. 10 were showing it at 7.30am in 1993. Different era. Let’s not forget all those adult jokes on Agro’s Cartoon Connection that went right over the heads of most of the children watching.
