  1. 10 have about 6-9 good shows, like Survivor, Masked Singer, TARA, HYBPA, Gogglebox to name a few but the problem with them is they have no depth outside of these. The schedule falls apart pretty quickly outside of these which is why they can’t compete with the big two in the market. Be interesting to see their upfronts and if there is any surprises. They need that big show that is going to grab us again. They used to be network that gave us the massive surprises, doesn’t really happen nowadays.
    One thing i wish they’d stop doing is plastering a massive Paramount+ watermark on their shows. It’s just ugly.

  2. Interesting to see 10 may get back the FTA rights to the ACCTAS after being on 7 the last few years.

    McGarvey confirmed Hunted coming “around this time next year” on the Mi3 podcast the other day – nice work on your article months ago about that.

    Am personally hoping for another Drama to be announced for FTA and more comedy.

    1. Agreed. The classic episodes do great business for Videoland in Europe. Bell-Phillip Television just recently confirmed all seasons will be released on their official YouTube channel. Season 1 is dropping now, albeit only 3 episodes per day. Seasons 19-31 are already live.

  3. I’m really looking forward to 10 hopefully announcing the return of The Amazing Race Australia, the announcement of the new show Hunted Australia and seeing just how much Survivor we manage to get in 2022!

  4. I’m pretty sure I heard that HYBPA? and Cheap Seats were confirmed as back, I feel like Hunted is pretty much confirmed now, hoping for Bachelor in Paradise but it would be nice to get a break from the other Bachelor shows next year.

    Also hoping for Ambulance Australia, Shark Tank and Celebrity Gogglebox as well as new Australian children’s shows for 10 Shake and Nickelodeon.

    1. It’s called A-League Women. Though they are still using w-league.com.au as their domain. The only thing I watch on list is Socceroos World and Asia Cup games, they’re existence has nothing to do with Viacom, and they are mostly on the anti-siphoning list. Theoretically the could not broadcast the away qualifiers, but I can see that being in anyone’s interest.

  5. Couple of typos, Australian Grand Prix not airing at all in 2021 due to cancellation.

    Also the end of the article has 7 upfronts from 12.30pm Wednesday, not 10. Maybe too early in the morning.
