Channel Nine’s trusty game show Temptation will return to screens in December.
The show with Ed Phillips and Livinia Nixon has been off throughout 2008, but Nine is understood to have two months’ of episodes, which it filmed in the middle of the year.
While it isn’t yet confirmed, Nine is likely to slate the show at 7:00 across summer non-ratings.
It will join another audience favourite, McLeod’s Daughters, as part of the network’s summer line-up.
When TV Tonight exclusively reported that Nine had cut short its production order for the game show in June, a spokesperson said, “It’s the last weekend of production of Temptation for the time being and that should get us through for the year.”
“Two and a Half Men has been delivering fantastic results for us across the board,” the spokesperson said at the time.
And therein lays the reason the local game show has to wait until summer.
Having filmed its episodes in the middle of 2008 it will be interesting to see how if some of the questions have dated.
