Seven has made a switch to its Saturday night line-up after just one week of ratings.
UK shows Not Going Out and Gavin & Stacey, which aired in Sydney and Brisbane, will not return this week. Plans for them to screen in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth are now shelved.
Instead it’s bringing in movie repeats with Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit from 8:40pm and Stuck On You at 10:50pm. Movies will continue the week after too.
Seven also removes Fawlty Towers and moves Vicar of Dibley back to 8pm (if you’re really hankering for more of Basil Fawlty it’s back in at 4:00pm Sunday March 1). What a Carry On, slated for 10:40pm, is also out.
It’s a shame Gavin & Stacey didn’t get a better shot, but only 86,000 sampled the show in Sydney, trailing RocKwiz on 100,000. Not Going Out took 120,000 in Sydney.
Seven finished Saturday night in third place behind the ABC.
