    I hate what ONE has become but i might give this ago, if it captures me in the first ep then i will give it another go a week later. Still smarting over the dumping of NBL to a 10.30 timeslot.

  2. why are One still airing encores of Can of Worms, its finished on Ten isn’t it?

    but 10:30 would have been better, or even earlier like on Thursdays at 8:30.

  3. Sounds quite suitable for ONE but seriously 11.30? There wasn’t a 8.30,9,9.30 slot available? Could have bought rights to Sports Nights (another sport themed sitcom) and aired both together in an earlier slot; paired up with An Idiot Abroad Season 2 – Would’ve made a good line up 🙁
