    Okay so C.S.I and The Almightly Johnsons now need to be dumped, not competing well enough with TV1. And while we are at it dump 3News. Yes I’m pissed they dumped Modern Family and House in particular. 

  • regan

    What are you talking about Smite? The Almighty Johnsons has had consistent ratings throughout the season and hasn’t lost audience like plenty of other new shows often do.  

  • Smite2010

    Sorry Regan, you haven’t obviously didn’t get my poor attempt at humour. Wasn’t seriously suggesting to dump The Almightly Johnsons, just ranting.

    I love that herald article today about TV3′s re-shuffle and how movies were to help for the school holidays et.c. I thought 6.30 saturdays on four were for the purpose of family viewing instead of current transforming “older skewing” TV3. Thanks to throngs daily ratings postings we can see that everything except maybe Bones at this stage is being beaten by TV One so they might aswell leave the shows there, they will be beaten anyway and Master chef while rates pretty well isnt a powerhouse that Australia experienced with the format so its not that large of a threat. I assume movies are being slotted in for 7.30 mondays on TV3 they got even more slaughted than sunday.

    Ahh.. I see.  I do hate how networks chop and change rather than backing themselves.
