Ten would be crazy to vacate the 5pm timeslot. Look at how TVAM/Sunrise expanded once Ten were out of the picture with News/Breakfast television offerings (albeit a few years later).
I wouldnt want to change the 5pm to 6pm much if at all. However here is something I think Ten could do from Christmas week til the end of Janaury
5pm Ten News/Ten News First
5:30pm Pointless (or another game show)*
6:00pm Ten News at Six
6:30pm The Sports Project
7:00pm The Project
- This program could be pulled if a major event is occurring.
The later in the night on 10Boss
9:30pmThe Project (rpt)
10:00pm The Sports Project (new)
Then late night
11:30pm The Sports Project (encore of the broadcast on 10 Boss)
12:00am The Project (rpt)
