Channel Nine is pushing the telecast of its Rugby League World Cup game this Sunday on GTV9 from 8:30pm to 10:30pm. There is no change to TCN9 or QTQ9.
Instead it will bring CSI: Miami back at 8:30pm with “All In” (S6E16) and follow with a repeat at 9:30pm.
Last night the game attracted just 158,000 viewers in Melbourne and 900,000 viewers nationally, beaten by Dancing with the Stars and Rove. Nine also lost its prized Sunday crown to Seven, although it was first in 18-49 and 25-54. TEN won 16-39.
The semi final on Saturday 15th is pushed out to midnight in Melbourne while the second Semi Final will also air at 10:30pm on November 16.
Nine had previously moved The Mentalist from Sundays to Wednesdays to make way for the World Cup. It has also copped a lot of flak for playing sports games delayed. More fodder for Pay TV to criticise FTA sports?
