Melbourne viewers who miss out on Packed to the Rafters next week, due to Nine’s screening of the EJ Whitten Legends Game, will get a double dose of new All Saints instead.
This puts Melbourne ahead of the rest of the country on the medico soap, at least temporarily.
Seven will screen a double Rafters in Melbourne a week later, bringing all viewers back into line.
The irony is, next Tuesday night Seven has the $90M lotto draw during that timeslot anyway. Forget about AFL – Melbourne will be spellbound by 7 little bouncing balls along with the rest of the country.
