    Probably not a wise move with its ratings slide to around 6 million after only 3 episodes.

    I wonder if putting 2 Broke Girls might have been better, since it is a WB-distributed show. Shame about Pan Am though. At least it is less damaging than putting Persons of Interest there.

    @tvtv I doubt they’d come anywhere close to banking on a half hour sitcom as their big show of the season.

    They did bank heavily on No Ordinary Family last year and we all know how that turned out for them…

  • tvtv

    I was initally thinking about Revenge (ABC Studios/Disney), but I don’t think it will be banked as much as Pan Am (in the US though, ABC promoted Revenge heavily before the season began). Plus, if Pan Am does go to TV2, it will most likely get the Housewives lead in.

    Revenge is good but it is a younger demo I think.

    amazing that TVNZ would announce their schedule in the comments section of this website almost a month before the official event…

  • reece_555

    Espically when some of the listed shows are from production companies TVNZ doesnt have output deals with.

  • Fauxlivia

    ‘TVNZ Admin’ clearly doesn’t realise that TV2 doesn’t actually own TerraNova, TV3 does.  Nice try though.

  • wohucanglong

    Are we to believe from the poster that Nothing Trivial will be moving to 2 for series 2?

  • Preston

    The poster’s for TVNZ, not TV2 specifically

    I’ve only been given the information for TV2 unfortunately, sorry to disappoint.
