Gone: Community, Primeval. Update: Nikita
GO! drops promised shows and Nine halts Programming Amendment advice.
Community is no longer scheduled on GO! next Monday night, replaced by replays of The Inbetweeners.
Nikita which pulled 90,000 on Tuesday night is also out of schedule next week, replaced by a movie. But at this stage it is still scheduled on May 11th.
Primeval which was scheduled for 7:30pm Wednesday on GO! is now replaced with The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men repeats.
Nine hasn’t send any amendments to TV Tonight, meaning programming advice which will continue to be supplied to readers, may no longer be reliable for Nine / GO! / GEM.
Amendment advice via websites such as TV Tonight has been particularly crucial during times of last-minute changes, especially during recent flood and cyclone disasters, but it would appear the rapidity of changes within Nine programming is having a negative effect on its PR relations.
Comments on GO!’s Facebook page are also expressing confusion at GO!’s habit of promising returning shows only to abandon them when they don’t resonate with a first viewing. Meanwhile 7TWO and ELEVEN have moved into an arena once dominated by GO! twelve months ago.
While programming changes persist it is unfortunate viewers will be left with even less avenues of accurate programming information and clarity.
UPDATE: GO! advises Nikita returns 10:30pm Wed May 11. Community was pulled because it was on too late. Hellcats will play out late Saturday afternoons. Primeval hasn’t been in the schedule for weeks.
