I’m pretty sure that the requirements are that the networks can put their children’s programs on any channel they have, hence there’s been a decline of children programming on main channels and more on multichannels (7Flix, 9GO, 10Peach, ABC4KIDS and ABCME), isn’t it?

In any cases, I think there is still an audience to watch these programs, but not on the mainstream, premium-programmed main channels. I don’t think the requirements need changing.


Test pattern midnight to 6am might be a money saver…with catch up there is still plenty to watch🙃

That is the mid season final of The Big Bang Theory.
Young Sheldon will continue into Christmas with a new episode even airing Boxing Day.

World of Dance continuing Friday afternoons.

That is it for Chicago Med. There is obviously still more episodes of the season but Nine hits the pause button after this double episode.

Kevin Can Wait episodes really slowing down during the week now.


I’m sure in previous years as soon as it was the end of November most US shows ended even if they had episodes remaining, yet this year they have them still going into December ? Not just on Nine but I’ve noticed it on Seven too.


Um, Kevin Can Wait has been airing either 1 or 2 episodes per week, exception being this week where there is 0. Not sure they can slow down from 0!?


Or Networks deliberately hung onto US shows just to pump them out from Feb. I can only think of a couple of shows that have had this treatment this year, there does seem to be a lot more new US content across the commercial Networks at 10.30/11.30 at night.


There is an episode next week.

At one stage they were doing 3 episodes. So they going from 3 to 2 to 1 to 0 to 1 to 0

Just seems like a slow down to me.


They’ve not done 3 episodes in a week as far I’m aware.
There was one week (when the bloody royals were here) and they advertised either 2 or 3, actually aired 0.


:clock1: Schedule change

Wednesday December 19th

7:30 Young Sheldon (ep 8 in season 2)
Note: This still leave 2 episodes to go before the mid season final which includes The Big Bang Theory crossover

There is not much else to report. The only new content is Taken will continue, along with Great Getaways, Imposters and a John Legend Christmas special. Mom and Chicago Med have been shelved.

No episode of Kevin Can Wait across the week. I am not sure what is happening with this show. I can see 20 episodes scheduled. Episode 22 is scheduled for this Wednesday 12th at 1:30pm. Not sure what happened to episode 21. 23 and 24 remain unscheduled.


Fri and Sat nights look like a 7 schedule from years gone by…

Have Nine aired all available eps of Manifest?


For a non-ratings season schedule it actually doesn’t look too bad. Good selection of movies and sitcoms. Will probably be beaten by the BBL on Seven but really can anything beat the Big Bash when there’s no other sports?




Is it meant to be a movie, or season 3 of a comedy?


There doesn’t seem to be Christmas with the Women’s Weekly this year?


Haha so disappointed! :joy:
