Once iconic melodrama McLeod’s Daughters has gotten another downgrade from Nine. Previously airing double eps 8:30 Saturdays, it just got pushed back to 9:30 effective immediately.
It’s a disappointing commitment to fans who waited patiently for the show to return in summer. In double eps late on a Saturday night in December, it’s hard to find a poorer prime time slot.
At 8:30pm Nine adds US import Wife Swap USA.
With such abysmal support for the final season it beggars the question -why did Nine make the eighth season in the first place? Otherwise, don’t tell anybody it’s your swansong and they might keep the faith?
