Melbourne delays Rafters return
Seven doesn't want to clash with Nine's EJ Whitten Legends charity match so Melbourne viewers will have to wait a week for the Rafters.
After moving Thank God You’re Here and Ghost Whisperer in Sydney and Brisbane this week, Seven in Melbourne will delay the return of Packed to the Rafters next week to avoid a clash with Nine’s EJ Whitten Legends charity match.
All other states will see Rafters return next Tuesday, June 30. Seven will screen a two-hour catch-up for Melbourne viewers on July 7th.
“We wanted to expose the new series of Rafters to the biggest Melbourne audience possible,” said Seven Melbourne programming chief Brad Lyons.
How we hate conflicting programming. Some states are still behind with Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters because of a Monay night AFL match.
Further confirmation on plans for July 7 will follow.
