OzTAM Overnights: Tuesday 18 September 2018.



  1. The SBS ‘Sex in Japan’ thing was shown early evening on SBS2 then late evening on SBS1 and then early AM on SBS2 again!-can’t remember that happening before for that sort of program-pretty good showing for the SBS trains considering they’re well repeated eps…

  2. Ten are finishing burning off S2, the last two eps are on next Tuesday. They have been advertising the new season of NCIS as coming soon, it may get the slot after that.

    • They were two new episodes of Bull that were on last night. Luckily I checked earlier in the day or I would not have known. Does TEN do any publicity for this show?
