Lisa McCune was originally due to plug Reef Doctors on Thursday’s episode of The Project, but who can blame her for not appearing after the network did a backflip and banished the show to a Friday night dead zone?
TEN publicity didn’t respond to enquiries about why the segment was dropped.
In her place was Heston Blumenthal pushing MasterChef. Alas, not appearing also meant she couldn’t plug Eddie Perfect’s Shane Warne Musical revival, in which she plays Simone Warne.
According to next week’s line up, she hasn’t be rescheduled either:
On Monday night, Hollywood funny man Seth Rogen joins us live at the desk to promote his new star-studded comedy, This Is The End. We look at the growing issue of the aging homeless, with estimates that people aged 55 and older now make up almost a fifth of all homeless Australians.
On Tuesday, the new Wallabies line-up is announced and sporting legend John Eales takes us through the team. We put lap band weight loss surgery under the spotlight as we look at the possible complications – do the risks outweigh the benefits?
Fans of the Funky Gibbon, Twinkle the giant kitten and Ecky Thump can rejoice when Bill Oddie, star of the classic BBC hit comedy, The Goodies, joins us live at the desk on Wednesday night. Carrie heads across country to catch up with Samuel Johnson in Perth. Samuel left Melbourne in February on a one-wheel-mission, with the aim of riding his unicycle across Oz to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research.
On Thursday, legendary 1980s movie star Molly Ringwald (Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Betsy’s Wedding) joins us live at the desk. Scott Dooley goes geek chic when he puts Google Glasses to the test and we talk about the effects of legal synthetic drugs when we meet a former user and a woman who lost her only son to synthetic cannabis.
Lehmo is an ambassador for national charity, Welcome To Australia, and on Friday he talks Walk Together, a march down the streets of 15 Australian cities designed to encourage Aussies to welcome asylum seekers and refugees.
6:30pm weeknights on TEN.
