  1. I am a Seven supporter but what they have done here is murder. I mean they have basically screwed with their shows. I actually like the DH and Grey’s pairing but Monday should have been the night they air those shows not Thursday. Having seen DH and B&S i don’t see the reason why B&S gets a higher profile timeslot. Its not fair.

    I don’t know what Seven are thinking but they keep shocking me.

    Amazing Race Australia won’t air until after Easter i recon. They wouldn’t be ready with it yet. I have always thought that.

    Wednesday 7:30pm i recon is No Ordinary Family. Its rated PG. Mind you the ads for this show have disappeared these last couple of days. Have Seven had 2nd thoughts?

    Sunday will remain unchanged and finally Seven have learnt its lesson on one count having Criminal Minds at 8:30pm with City Homicide at 9:30pm. Thats 2 things they have done right (Sunday as well) but my biggest concern is Conviction Kitchen on Monday. 2 hours of cooking shows is a bit over kill. I actually like Conviction Kitchen’s premise and it could be the shock hit of 2011 but it also could be road kill.

  2. Unusual putting How I met your Mother before Greys/DH and Private Practice.

    HIMYM if they had given Home and Away the axe never to return at the end of last year would do a lot better as a 7pm nightly offering.

  3. If Seven are planning to show Winners and Losers on Mondays at 8.30pm then maybe they should have shown Desperate Housewives there for a few weeks and moved it to 9.30pm. Brothers & Sisters could then follow Packed to the Rafters on Tuesdays. The 10.30 slot could have been comedies from Monday to Wednesdays, mon 30 Rock, tue Cougar Town and Parks & Recreation on

  4. I am not to keen on hearing this new line-up I enjoyed all combinations especially Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters and Packed to the Rafters and Parenthood. Hopefully seven will reinstate all the combinations again. But we will see how things go!

  5. Conviction Kitchen, will have it’s death sentance. 2 hours of coooking & then more Tues/Wed is going to be ‘dogs dinner’! Conviction kitchen is way too far out! I know a chef who worked for a prision and it’s more sour grapes. Only privileged prisoners get a chance to cook in the kitchen. I’d bet the audience want a crzed crim, who tried to redeem his.herself.

    I don’t like MKR, It’s just not cooking at a pro’s level. I don’t see the point. Sorry if sound ungrateful to all those MKR fans 🙁 .

  6. I have read most the comments below & see that Ch7 is very unpopular with their decisions!
    I knew DH was going to move, glad 7 stuck with it last year, not sure it will work between two medics!
    Agree Mondays now a switch off I love to cook but 2 hours loses me, wouldn’t have been keen with 1 hour!
    Winners and Losers could be Sundays? Popular time slot…
    TBA on Wed 7:30 either Border shows I won’t watch or trial of Aussie TAR? Maybe Sun nite for that too
    We shall see what rates & what doesn’t…

  7. Why are they airing conviction kitchen now?? Massive overloa it won’t hurt masterchef only themselves they should have saved conviction kitchen till after my kitchen rules or for the end of the year
    Don’t like desperate housewives on Thursday but at least it’s a night you can sit up late because it’s a Friday the next day I guess I don’t mind being a little tired on fridays

  8. I wonder which they’ll show first, The Amazing Race US 18 or Australia, I hope they fasttrack the US season next month but seeing as they’ve already shown a few ads for the Aussie version, it may be shown first. I hIghly doubt they’ll show both seasons at the same time, but who knows. Also glad to see Parenthood return so soon, about the only thing that appeals to me on that list.

  9. Nothing there of interest to me except Criminal Minds. Like others I think Conviction Kitchen will not last long but who knows when you see some of the rubbish that rates.

  10. Two of my favourite shows are getting stuffed up. That’s a bad timeslot for Desperate Housewives and even worse for 30 Rock. They have never given 30 Rock a fair chance. It needs to be on at 10.30pm after a comedy/drama like Castle, Brothers & Sisters or even Desperate Housewives. My favourite shows were once all on Monday or Tuesday but now they’re all over the place and it will be difficult to remember where to find them.

  11. Seven has 5 great combinations, and they’messed it all up.
    Housewives/ Brothers and Sisters
    Criminal Minds/City Homicide
    Greys/Private Practice

    I mean, they’re basically spin-offs of one another, then it’s a “fill in the blanks” job with the 7:30 timeslot, with 2 nights of the same redundant,phone-to-vote reality show (Kitchen, X Factor, Dancing, whatever Seven can scrape together) 1 night of sitcoms (Mother + something else) 1 night of American reality (Amazing Race), 1 night of those godawful but cheap-to-make bevy of shows with the word “Border” in them, and there, you have 5 nights of great viewership for at least 3 months.

    10:30 shows are even easier, repeats/dead comedies/miracle makeover shows.

    And there you have a simple, easy-to-remember schedule that fits all.

  12. Don’t know why they virtually axed CH then proceeded to give it a pretty good timeslot in the opening week of ratings.

    Where is TAR? Either season 18 or Australia?

  13. thursdays on seven always rate badly, last year it took months before it even won a thursday night. but with shoes like that, i think it will do well. greys used to do well in its thurs 8.30 slot before it was moved to tuesdays last year.
    and i think conviction kitchen isn’t really a cooking show, its more to do with the story of the ex-cons. Dont see how it pairs up with b&s though!
    and yes! where is TAR australia??? its what im looking forward to the most this year!

  14. Seven usually had good match ups for their shows but no longer it seems. I don’t want to wait through Private Practice for 30 Rock. I don’t want to wait through Conviction Kitchen for Brothers and Sisters. I don’t want to wait through Grey’s Anatomy for Desperate Housewives. Epic Fail for Seven.

  15. That’s stupid moving Desperate Housewives to Thursday between two medical dramas. Also very disappointed that 30 Rock is moving to 11.30pm again and after Private Practice. That sux. How about at least trying it after Cougar Town on Tuesdays at 11pm and then show double CT towards the end of the season when they run out of new 30 Rock. Also agree that’s it’s stupid to have two cooking shows back to back.

  16. highly suggest new season of HIMYM it is the best yet.

    but god help me if channel 7 take it off after 5-6 episode like the last few seasons (only to bring it back 5 months later) imma be pi**ed. off.
    not that i wouldnt see it coz i already have, but because it deserves to have a full run.
