As reported here earlier, the show was pulled from Nine’s Wednesday night line-up along with ER and Men in Trees.
As the network gears up for the first week of ratings next week, the shows are nowhere in sight.
Disgruntled viewers went online last night looking for answers, and many of them came to TV Tonight. Here is a sample of their views:
“I suspect like quite a few people I was somewhat demystified at 9.30 when there appeared to be some movie on instead of Moonlight. I am thoroughly disappointed as have been enjoying Moonlight immensely. I don’t see what’s to be gained by taking off a programme halfway through the series and replacing it with some pretty ordinary movie that everyone has seen already? Does anyone know how we can complain to Channel 9?”
“I started watching Moonlight when it started and have been enjoying it from day one. I tuned in tonight – and oh look, catch me if you can is on…”
“I am really tired of Australian TV networks moving time slots and messing around with programming. It goes on all the time.”
“Is it any wonder that people are turning to Peer to Peer file sharing programs to download TV episodes?”
“Channel Nine is dead to me. “We heart TV” is their slogan – they must hate their viewers, then.”
“Moonlight was the only thing I watched on WIN. How do they expect their ads to sell me things if now I’ll never see them, as there’s nothing else they show I want to view.”
“Moonlight was a great show, but now I’m downloading it – screw commercial TV *fume*”
Moonlight also rated highest amongst viewers of this site in survey that asked them to nominate their favourite summer “sleeper” hit.
