Is there any news on what SBS will be programming on its main channel in the mornings?

From my understanding all foreign news bulletins are moving to the news channel.

Tokyo Vice debuts on HBO Max on April 7, but SBS has not yet scheduled an Australian premiere date.

I just noticed in the latest issue of TV Week that there is a “final” appearing next to Jeopardy for next Friday (the 8th of April). For both the SBS version at 5.05pm and the repeat on SBS Viceland version at 7.05pm.

Ive been watching the 7pm-ish version each night for a while now, so it will be a shame if it goes off air. It’s a great show. Any ideas on why Jeopardy is leaving SBS? Or just a mistake from the mag?
