For the second time this week Nine News Sydney will stretch to an hour.
Tonight’s edition has had a last minute change, again pushing A Current Affair out to 7pm and bumping Two and a Half Men off screen.
The change is apparently NRL related (Newsflash: it’s actually AFL that has the Grand Final this weekend).
Nine did the same on Wednesday when a dust storm enveloped the city.
Maybe there’s another strategy here. Perhaps Nine News is so over Charlie Sheen and co. that the only way they can elbow him out for the night is to extend their own bulletin?
If that’s the case, more power to the newsroom….
