Sorry buds o was meaning to quote your post but I re looked at it and it was news weary I’ll change it

Good interview from Lisa tonight with Julia Banks. The right wing freaks at sky news will be gearing up to put the boot into her.

Im watching the repeat now, they showed someone throwing up on TV! Was it blurred on the earlier version?


#3489

Yes it was pixelated.


#3490

So it was obviously a prerecorded segment.


#3491

They also stated it had happened earlier.


#3492

The Sunday Project moves to 6pm this week.


#3493

Given the low ratings inal the time slots moving it forward makes sense so that primetime can start at 7pm. It will all fail but at least it’s in line with the other networks. Not much ten can do or put there to even compete.


#3494

That means it will get a big lead-in from F1 in Sydney and Melbourne this Sunday.


#3495

Smart this weekend, going forward it won’t do as well.


#3496

Yep, it is going to struggle. There is a reason why the 6.30 numbers (Sunday - Friday) are so low.


#3497

But The Sunday Project is hardly rating through the roof anyway, 7pm starts is a better idea for Sunday programming on 10.


#3498

They tried 7pm- doesn’t work. Starting at 6.30, gives them time to build numbers by 7pm.

And, don’t forget that The Sunday Project was the number 1 show on 10 last night.


#3499

With still dysmal figures


#3500

Well air 6pm news then 6.30 primetime programming then, but I’d argue the news on the other networks would kill their chances then.


#3501

At least they’re doing something.


#3502

Wouldn’t they be better to do local versions of Ten News at 6pm (on the back of the Grand Prix) then do Chris and Julia . . . surely 10 News could do more than what The Project is doing currently! I know Ten can’t compete with 7 and 9 News, but in this instance, and in terms of audience potential . .


#3503

In response to the idea of a 90 minute Project. Could they possibly look at keeping the longer investigative stories (say 10-15 minutes) and airing at the beginning of the show.

For example:
6:00-6:05 News Headlines
6:05-6:20 Main Story
6:20-6:35 Main Guest Interview (have it as a longer interview)
6:35 News Headlines…
