Here we go again.
Morning television shows, specifically two of them, just hate it when the other guy gets a jump start.
Nine’s new Sunday version of the Today show with Leila McKinnon and Cameron Williams begins this Sunday morning.
Airing at 7am, it has a half hour head start on the traditional 7:30am start time of Seven’s Weekend Sunrise, hosted by Andrew O’Keefe and Samantha Armytage.
So Seven just announced it’s moving back to 7am too.
Not so long ago there was a similar scheduling battle over the shows’ weekday versions and early News, along with an earlier start for the now-deceased Sunday.
It was so early that Ray Martin didn’t want to get up for it, leaving Ellen Fanning to host solo.
And that was 7:30am.
