More of First Dates on the way

2016-10-20_1047

Didn’t expect this one…. Seven has confirmed more episodes of First Dates is coming our way this year.

The dating series was a big hit for Seven earlier this year (and cheap as chips to produce I’d suggest). So while new episodes were never really in any doubt, Seven has confirmed we’ll be getting them this year -despite less than 6 weeks remaining in the ratings year.

With Seven already having 2016 in the bag it could have easily opted to hold these for next year. Or perhaps it has been brought forward?

With The Bachelorette set to conclude next week First Dates will doubtless take the romantic lead.

  1. Quite an interesting decision. Seven have been a bit quiet post-Olympics, particularily in the younger demos, so maybe they’re using it trying to bolster their 16-39 demo for the year.

  2. Maybe it’s a good idea as Seven has been a bit lacklustre since the Olympics, especially from 7.30 to 10:30pm slot. Zumbo was weak, X Factor is not firing. They really have not much going on until the end of ratings period. At least Nine has a reliable brand – Block carry it through.
