The Big Bang Theory and New Adventure of Old Christine will disappear after next Monday night. This week they had 647,000 (Christine) and 625,000 (Big Bang) heavily beaten by Seven observational shows Coastwatch and Borderline, both 1.3m. They were even beaten by SBS’ Mythbusters Pirate Special (670,000). They are to be replaced by its own observational series, Inferno and Deadly Surf.
After next Sunday, Waking the Dead will move from to Saturdays at 9:30pm starting January 5. Instead Nine will return Sunday movies.
Plans to return Nip / Tuck and Hotel Babylon have been shelved -again.
In the case of Nip / Tuck it is the umpteenth indecision on a return for the show, stuck in a Nine cycle of scheduled, taken off air, rescheduled and withdrawn before it airs. Meanwhile most fans have given up on awaiting the identity of the serial attacker, The Carver and downloaded the series. It will continue with The Closer.
Hotel Babylon, only recently plugged as part of Nine’s 2008 showcase, will not air as planned on Tuesdays in January. Does Nine plan to air these in ratings now? It is replaced by Sensing Murder.
Finally Things to Try Before You Die which was to repeat from Thursday Dec 27 will be replaced by new eps of What A Year with Bert Newton and Julia Zemiro.
