Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries


#41

It’s a tough sell but is there an alternative timeslot? Most nights, the bloated MKR will run way past 9pm.


#42

Probably not. But why 2 hours? Miss Fisher was only an hour long. With padding & double the ads, I can’t see this being a success.


#43

I agree it should have been a one hour show but who knows why they went with 2 hours. Maybe the producers felt restricted with one hour including ads


#44

Perhaps they should start at 8:40pm (usually when 8:30 programs start) and finish at 10pm. This will be lucky to finish by 10:40.


#45

The episode length is longer than any MKR episode so hard to see how it will fit into 2 hours.


#46

Can’t they air it at 7.30 and burn Home and Away off later in the year?


#47

More like 11pm. Seems as if 7 has set it up to fail. It’s an odd program choice by them, as it won’t do wonders in demos.


#48

Disappointed with the timeslot, generally considered a dead night.

But I wouldn’t have expected anything more from the network that buried The Blake mysteries on a Friday


#49

Weren’t the original Miss Fisher and Dr Blake on Friday on the ABC?


#50

Yes but they were popular with an older audience that doesn’t watch sport and is at home on a Friday night. If Seven want the golden oldies fine but they axed A Place to Call Home because it wasn’t getting enough young viewers so I just assumed the ABC audience is one they want to watch this, but not exclusively.


#51

Aside from Sunday’s, the days of programs consistently starting at 8:30pm are long gone. It’s yet another victim of Australia’s (unhealthy) addiction to reality TV


#52

What happened to sevens troditional drama slots, at 8.30 on Tuesdays?
