Nine has decided it’s time for a holiday.
But a holiday on a budget. Getaway is returning next Thursday at 7:30pm with the first of two episodes that focus on economically-priced holidays. No doubt as a result of the global financial crisis.
This means Celebrity Singing Bee is now out.
Last week Tim Campbell told TV Tonight six specials would air in the 7:30pm Thursday slot.
“But you know, talk to me next week and who knows?” he laughed.
Little did anybody realise the show would have to make way for the Australia Unites special, with Campbell’s blessing.
Last night in the phone room Eddie McGuire also asked when the show would be back.
“We very gladly went off tonight, I think this is much more important,” he said, “but we’re back on next Thursday night at 7:30, thanks for the plug, but this is much more important tonight.”
No doubt Nine will find another timeslot to be advised.
