Interesting to see there had been some schedule changes tonight, you don’t see that very often

TVNZ has made a last-minute change to its Monday night line-up, citing sensitivity concerns following the assassination attempt made on Donald Trump.

The state-owned broadcaster had scheduled the comedy film Head of State, starring Chris Rock, to air on Duke at 10.15pm on Monday.

But TVNZ’s content team announced on Monday afternoon that it had replaced that film with the Adam Sandler vehicle Anger Management, “due to sensitivities in content”. The film’s plot hinges on the death of the fictional sitting President and Vice-President in a plane crash.

Home and Away here in Australia only airs 4 days a week.

The difference is that Home and Away airs 5-6 episodes a week in Australia, with 2-3 episodes usually on Thursdays; Shortland Street will only show three episodes per week.
