A rare network glimpse last night of how TEN sees its year shaping up, divided into 4 quarters and summer book-ends.
Obviously this isn’t the full slate, but an indication of roughly what periods of the year we will see key shows.
Early evenings see TEN Eyewitness News, Family Feud and The Project across the year. The Living Room and US content also play across the year.
Quarter 1 is all new content with I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Shark Tank and Gogglebox. Presumably The First ANZACs also goes here.
Masterchef Australia upholds Quarter 2 with Have You Been Paying Attention? coming into play (finally a strong lead in for the latter).
Quarter 3 is the most interesting with an unnamed entertainment show to be introduced. TEN will need more here than 1 feature brand, given there are at least 3 in other quarters.
The final chapter sees not one but two Bachelor / Bachelorette titles -an interesting approach given other networks stagger their double seasons across the year. Biggest Loser (referred to as TBL Families on a few occasions last night) moves to the back half of the year, as previously tipped. That will move it away from My Kitchen Rules but face new competition.
Big Bash cricket book-ends the year.
No hints at where new dramas will play. It also looks like no decision has been made yet on Recipe to Riches, not unreasonable given it is still on air.
