First quarter broken promises
Crusoe, Who Do You Think You Are, Local Heroes and more. What else did Nine promise for the first quarter of 2009?
There is just one week to go before we move into the second quarter of 2009.
Late last year, the Nine Network told its advertisers that a raft of new shows would air in the first quarter of 2009. But a number of the titles on the list still remain unaired.
Gathering dust on the Nine shelves, and promised for the first quarter, are:
For Richer for Poorer
What’s Good For You
Who Do You Think You Are? (US)
When I Grow Up
Without a Trace
This mirrors a similar list at the end of 2007 which promised undelivered shows for 2008 including The Young Doctors, Toasted and Roasted, The Irwin Family’s Australia Zoo, Jingles and more.
Nine also appears to have changed hosts for the return of What’s Good For You, originally promised to be Dr Andrew Rochford (The Waiting Room). This week it was announced Lyndsey Rodrigues would front the show.
And while we’re on the subject of looming deadlines, on February 26th David Leckie promised Seven would reveal its plans for multi-channelling “withing the coming month.”
Nine yesterday indicated it would launch an entertainment channel later in the year.
Hopefully Seven will live up to its word by the end of Thursday.
