Update: Bondi Vet, Graham Norton, Extant,

2014-08-21_0105TEN has wisely decided not to go into Sunday night without some more substantial first-run content and this Sunday will screen the 2012 family movie Ice Age: Continental Drift at 6:30pm.

Manny, Diego, and Sid embark upon another adventure after their continent is set adrift. Using an iceberg as a ship, they encounter sea creatures and battle pirates as they explore a new world.

That means Bondi Vet is out but it returns a week later.

Modern Family repeats will follow at 8:15pm, but it does mean a new Graham Norton episode is now out. Formula One airs at 9:40pm in most markets. However Perth & Adelaide will see The Darjeeling Limited (2007) at 9:40pm..

Meanwhile there is a double episode of Extant next Wednesday night.

  1. I hope they stick to the advertised time for F1 this week. The last 2 races, the previous shows ran so late, there was no pre-race show and we practically had to go straight to the o/s feed as the race was seconds from starting.

  2. Ten are back in rearranging the deckchairs mode. They are having to move stuff rating less than 400k out of their lineups.

    Now that the News, FF. The Project and The Bachelor are the only shows on Ten rating over 500k, at least the endless calls for Ten to cancel to them to rapidly turn the network around have stopped.

  3. Maev....Sydney

    Was that as confusing for you to write as it is for me to read DK…or am I just too old…*sigh*
    Thanks for letting us know what is going down…but no thanks to TEN for messing around with their programs

  4. I wish they would find permanent time slots for things and keep them there, if they work. They moved Bondi Vet to Sunday nights, spent all week promoting a new night & episode only to bump it last minute for a premiere movie which they should have done from the beginning.

    I understand that they want to increase the audience share on TEN by having F1 on Sunday night & Pan Pacs on Saturday after the Bledisloe but isn’t this why they have ONE? Chopping and changing channels is frustrating let alone bumping content, they clearly don’t think much about their viewers by using these tactics.

    It surprises me with the amount of encores and lack of content that they have, that shows such as Hawaii Five-0 and The Millers to name a couple have been shelved. They need to start taking more risks like Family Fued (sans simulcasting).

  5. “Formula One airs at 9:40pm in most markets” – why do Channel Ten keep bumping Graham Norton in place of all of these F1 and racing events? Isn’t that why they have Channel One? It’s bad enough we have to endure the interrupting commercial breaks, we also have to put up with episodes being screened out of sequence or dropped all together?

  6. Surely Graham Norton would be better served at 9.30 Mondays after HYBPA? Seems strange that Ten appear so light on content but have this sitting there on the shelf.
