ELEVEN is one year old today.
The joint venture between TEN and CBS has had a strong twelve months, making strong in-roads especially against GO!
It is frequently amongst the top 3 multichannels for the week.
Network TEN Head of Programming, Beverley McGarvey, said about ELEVEN: “Channel ELEVEN ended the survey year significantly ahead of our closest competitors, and in 2012 we plan on going from strength to strength. We’re looking into some fresh ideas to bring to the table, as well as bringing back some of the best TV the US has to offer.”
To mark the occasion, Couch Time will have a giant cake this afternoon and tonight there’s a new episode of The Simpsons. ELEVEN is also promising new Neighbours, Wilfred, Futurama, The Cleveland Show, The Office, Nurse Jackie and Top Model this year.
Supernatural, Smallville and Neighbours all returned this week, while the tantalising American Horror Story wraps next week, to be followed by Dexter.
TV Tonight readers voted ELEVEN their preferred multichannel in the recent 2011 TV Tonight Awards by a big margin.
ELEVEN is also producing a new mini-drama Micro Nation, and a new music show co-hosted by Scotty Tweedie is coming to Saturday mornings later this month.
Now, if only they could fix ONE….
