Nine has responded, as we knew they all would, to it’s under-performing Tuesday night line up which this week saw its share dip to just 18.9%.
But its replacement programmes don’t look much better.
This week the line-up was:
7:30 Two and a Half Men rpt
8:00 The New Adventures of Old Christine
8:30 20 to 1
9:30 CSI: New York
Next Tuesday it now plans:
7:30 20 to 1
8:30 Two and a Half Men
9:00 Two and a Half Men
9:30 Commercial Breakdown Adults Only
10:15 Kitchen Nightmares: USA
Christine is now out of schedule on Nine (though it is coming to GO!) while new eps of CSI: NY are out.
Hosting the “naughtiest and sexiest commercials” is Dermott Brereton with Gyton Grantley as a guest.
It will be interesting to see how Ramsay performs since his public admonishing. Kitchen Nightmares: USA is episode 12 of S2 “Cafe 36” from January. Another will air a week later, but Nine looks like running out of fresh eps from there.
Meanwhile still no change for Australia’s Perfect Couple, which had just as poor figures, but more network ker-ching invested.
