  1. Nine always have problems with any programming after live sport – nothing is ever on time after cricket.

    As for games played in the GABBA, they never finish by 6pm AEDT (5pm local) – delay or not – so I don’t know why Nine don’t program accordingly.

    Over to Seven news at 6 instead of Nine’s.

  2. Good Doctor unbelievable, I love the show, sad it’s finishing on Tuesday. What happened to the Ex PM, am enjoying it but it’s obviously not resonated this year? Now, I can’t say the Ashes ratings are good. A series that always gets at least 1m. There was a rain delay, it was a Thursday and Nine will have to adjust everything with the 1.25hr over run. But as a passionate cricket and footy fan, should’ve been at least 700k-800k for Session 3 on Day 1 of first test!

    1. Having bought the rights for big dollars I guess they were obliged to stick with it. But they could have continued the coverage on Gem, surely. What’s the point of having multiple channels if they don’t use them when needed?. Sponsors demands? I wouldn’t be surprised.

      1. Even if they didn’t want to move the Cricket (which I can understand) nothing stopping them putting the news on Gem or Go for the night. If people want to watch it, they’ll watch it whatever channel it’s on.
