  1. Anyone else feel like the networks have already gone into non ratings summer programming. I love Hey Hey but a repeat of a special during prime time in ratings season seems like lazy programming, even if it pulled healthy numbers for a rerun.

    Feels like summer non-ratings has already started and network Ten feels like it’s on a constant Pilot week of never ending flops, the next being that MTV reality show it has lined up next for prime time.

    1. For a re-run during ratings season likely yes. It also didn’t come last in its time slot but second so considering it was up against first run competition they’d be happy.
