    1. 10 first announced the premiere date of I’m a Celebrity’s new season (April 2) on February 19. That gave Nine ample time to counter program against it by scheduling the two reunion episodes of MAFS on the Sunday and Monday. This situation could have been avoided if 10 simply said I’m a Celebrity would return in April when it launched the promo in February, and only revealed the exact date a couple weeks out from the premiere.

      1. Every network should have faith in their product and be able to give launch dates as soon as they like, without worrying about what competitors do. Pro active and stable programming is much better than reactive programming and last minute changes just to avoid a show on a rival network that might do better.
