TEN summer starts the Journey

While there is still no official announcement as to TEN’s summer schedule, the first week of non-ratings gives us some indication of what’s in store.

TEN will launch the NBC sci fi drama Journeyman starring Kevin McKidd as a time traveller. Described as a “modern day Quantum Leap” the show launched in September to 9.4m viewers.

Other new offerings include The Starter Wife the miniseries starring Debra Messing, Judy Davis and Miranda Otto. Shot in Queensland it even has a role by Mark Holden. Messing plays the estranged wife of a Hollywood mogul seeking to start life over. It has since been greenlit for a series in the US.

TEN will copycat Nine’s Singing Bee with its US import Don’t Forget the Lyrics, hosted by Wayne Brady of Whose Line is it Anyway? It promises “10 songs, 10 missing lyrics, $1M dollars.” Said to be more game show than quiz show….

New eps will screen for Monk, Meerkat Manor, Jamie at Home, America’s Next Top Model, and Deadliest Catch. Cane, Animalia and The Biggest Loser (US) will already have begun new eps.

Neighbours remains in schedule for the week of December 3.

As expected, Friends will join TEN in the profile 7pm timeslot. Other repeats will include Medium, Law and Order, Law & Order: CI, Law & Order: SVU, NCIS …and presumably The Simpsons.

UPDATE: Now out of schedule: Monk, The Office, Law & Order: SVU, Deadliest Catch. In: Psych, Orange Roughies.

Coming Soon

  1. Hi David,
    I was wondering if you could shed any light to when MONK will hit the airwaves again? Channel 10 has stuffed monk up now for years and i speak on behalf of all Monk fans that its a disgrace that such a good show is replaced with the rubbish channel 10 seems to air on a daily basis. Anyway it would be greatly appreciated if you could keep us up to date.

  2. Doesn’t look good for Veronica at this stage. On the other hand I don’t see everything working, maybe it will come to their rescue?

    Call me cynical but I don’t ever expect to see Jericho back, really.
