The final episode of Letters & Numbers aired on Wednesday night, after SBS opted to “rest” the format.
It pulled 140,000 viewers for its final episode, which is typical of many episodes.
Tonight SBS replays panel show ADbc until Daily Highlights of the Tour de France take over on Monday.
The axe for the show comes in the same month that the Federal Government named Lily Serna as one of 2 Numeracy Ambassadors for National Literacy and Numeracy Week, August 27- September 2nd.
The timing couldn’t be worse.
Viewers are still angry over SBS’ decision, leaving plenty of comments on the show’s Facebook page.
On his blog word guru David Astle described it as “a blow for local, brainy TV. Thanks for all your kind words and loyal viewing. Keep your English elastic.”
Serna will re-appear in SBS food / travel show Destination Flavour.
