What do you think?

With Neighbours returning in the second half.of 2023, id like to see this happen to 10 when it returns (Monday to Thursday):

5.00pm: News (as is)
6.30pm: Neighbours
7.00pm: The Project
7.30pm: reality tentpole
8.30pm: talk shows / factuals

Fridays:
5.00pm: News (as is)
6.30pm: Neighbours
7.00pm: The Project extended show (replacing The Living Room)
8.30pm: The Graham.Norton Show

The Project Fridays extended to 90 minutes, to incorporate extended interviews, do a week in review, and showcase whats ahead on the weekend. More relaxed version

Not sure they could rationalise The Project to 30 mins a night these days with the money they are spending there, if anything they could follow Studio 10 and extend to 90 mins each weeknight.

You mean 10 News First?

No actually Studio 10, in that it started as two hours, and in a cost-conscious move they incrementally extended the program gradually to probably keep the wolves at bay. It was four hours a day until they added the breakfast bulletin only recently.

With Sarah Harris moving onto The Project, and Lisa Wilkinson announcing her departure I would take this as an opportunity at 10 to refresh their morning lineup.

6am to 8am run 10 New First as a double header with a more magazine / conversational tone. This can be done with Natasha Exelby, and Daniel Doody.

8am to 10am I would run Studio 10 with Angela Bishop and Steve Jacobs.

10am through 11am I would have a headline program ala Kerrie Anne Kennerly, with Lisa at the helm. Aptly titled ‘Lisa’.

What about Tristan McManus does he still get a gig I think he hosts alright maybe with his wife
