I agree, Are You Being Served would be another good show to put on. They could have a classic comedy show like Channel 7 had last year.

Agree again, I thought they were supposed to be Current Affairs programs, not "whatever the other channel showed last week" programs.

I thought Ray Martin left Channel 9 (retired) late last year/early this year?

Channel 9 would seriously benefit from some witty comedy, rather than the lame attempt at obvious jokes it currently displays or the imported irrelevant garbage that graces our screens.
It should be something fast paced, fresh, witty, intelligent (yes something that involves people to use their brains a little) and multifaceted.

Unfortunately for PETERGRIFFIN888 the above criteria well and truly crush this idea. Frankly Eratik could come up with a better program on his own (no offence to Eratik who I do actually find cleverly funny most of the time, unlike Family Guy which one could never describe as clever... or overly funny come to that... unless repeating the same disconnected yet at the same time obvious joke 400 times takes your fancy, or an extensive soundtrack consisting mainly of fart noises :? )

latest rubbish they have is something along the lines of a Mens Army
While I didn't mind Ladette to Lady that is going too far
I would kill for a Tuesday Night Line up of comedies instead of the rubbish that now exists between 8:30 and 10:30pm

WHat really bugs me is that at the end of al ltheir shows, they say "Produly Australian". Well, at last check. Nine was owned by PBL, which in turn is owned by CVC Media, who are Asians. So, if by Australian they mean Asian, then, yes, they are Australian in every way. If not, false advertising, Nine!

That depends on which part of channel nine you are talking about. Nine Adelaide (and I believe Perth) is owned by WIN.

Two and a Half Men re-runs are the only reason my idiot box goes onto 9. I do sometimes watch Wide World of Sports if I am home on a Saturday arvo and reckon 9 did a good thing by bringing that back. F**king Ramsay gets some air time as well occasionally if there's nothing else on.

Overall though, there hasn't been much need for me to watch 9 since Hey Hey it's Saturday ceased a few years ago.

Aye to that. Even when they get the occasional decent show its a few episodes at a decent time slot then move to midnight and show out of sequence - I just dont think their programmers have the faintest idea.

That would be correct. Next thing you know, it'll be the Win Network!

One way Nine can make a dent in their ratings drought is to bring back the Sex programme.

A Double Dose of Looney Tunes Cartoons before the news
And something suitable for the 5 to 18 Year Olds For 4 to 6pm viewing
A more Youth Orientated Line Up Even If it means having to push News and Current Affairs on weekdays forward an hour
Home Grown Comedies.
Shows to run on time every time.
Every Time another story comes on ACA It delays two and a half men by five minutes.

The first one I don't see happening, but the latter, maybe. But a 5 year old's taste in television would certainly be different from an 18 year old's.

This would result in a bump in the ratings.

PETERGRIFFIN888 wrote:Home Grown Comedies.


Just so long as Thank God You're Here stays on Ten, or goes to Seven, I'm not fussed (I don't get channel nine where I live :mrgreen: )

PETERGRIFFIN888 wrote:Shows to run on time every time.


It will be a cold day in hell before a commercial FTA network runs on time. They're all guilty of this, period. Foxtel\Austar channels are a bit better (especially TV1 and SciFi, which generally run early).

My opinion is that ACA is a stupid, pointless show. Today tonight is a bit better, if not for the fact there are stories on it that could be relevant to me in South Australia more often than not. Just axe it and get it over and done with.

They both suck! You need to watch proper Current Affairs shows like "The 7.30 Report" or "Dateline".

the 2.5 men would rate a lot higher if they had something decent to use as a lead in show to that instead of A Current Affair

Channel 9 is beyond fixing. It sound be demolished and replaced with ABC3, just in case you missed the repeats of the repeats on ABC2.

Perhaps ABC HD will do the job?

On a side note I'm surprised at the popularity of 2.5 men...that show tries to hit the mark but fails miserably.

ABC has an innovative new program in the works if rumours are correct. They are considering taking its leading current affairs program out on the road to the masses in an extravagent stage spectacular. See reporter Peter Lloyd in the lead role of ABC's Four Corners On Ice. Coming soon.

Channel Nine again delayed the start of Two and a Half Men last Night GRRRRR.

Stupid A Current Affair again.If they can't get the show over and done with by 7pm It should be dumped

If they ever plan to bring back temptation they should use it to replace ACA at 6:30pm while keeping the 2.5 men at 7pm

A modern day version of the price is right would be an improvement

Even any number of proven long discontinued American Sitcoms has got to be better anytime

They are finally getting rid of nightline AND Sunday.

To be quite honest do we really need six news bulletins a day on Channel Nine.

Finally they will give us something decent on weeknights after 10pm
