The withdrawal came after a petition on change.org which fiercely criticised the work of comedian Chris Lilley, whose work, including the Tongan-Australian character, Jonah, “perpetuated racial violence,” with over 2400 signatures received.

Considering a fair chunk of SBS and SBS Viceland’s schedules are currently taken up by airing the international bulletins, it’ll be interesting to see how both channels will fill the gap left when the bulletins move to the new news channel next year.

More 8 of 10 Cats does Countdown?

Would be cool but that would probably only be possible between 12-3pm because of its M clasification. Maybe they might get regular Countdown to complete their set.

Could be shows like Repeats of Railways Journeys, ships, Simon Reeve, Tony Robinson, Who Do You Think You Are? and maybe some international shows like Jeopardy, Hunting Hitler, Mythbusters, If You Are the One (:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:) etc.

Yeah it was a joke, they run it on repeats often and it does well on multi’s but probably not the right fit to replace slots where they’ve moved news bulletins from.
