Well since the AFL rights has gone to Seven, I think that the NRL should be televised live not just into NSW and QLD, but also VIC, because Victoria barely gets any rugby league coverage, the only match I can think of when an NRL has broadcast into Victoria live away from State of Origin, was the opening round clash between Melbourne Storm v Wests Tigers, and that game was in Melbourne,

So my suggestion is, broadcast any NRL games that involve the Melbourne Storm live into VIC, NSW and QLD :!: :idea:

Reduce the News Bulletins to 11am and 6pm respectively.
No more 4:30pm News Bulletins.....I am old enough to remember when Childrens Shows used to exist at that hour after school now sadly no more unless you have a Cable or Satellite Television
Double Doses of Two and a Half Men on weeknights even if it means having to drop that tripe known as A Current Affair for it I am all in favour.
If they must have Talk Shows What About Geraldo or Jerry Springer
And Finally No more Gordon Ramsay(If I wanted a Wanker I would watch the Footy Show)

Bring back Airline,Airport and Changing Rooms Kind of Shows.

9am should be given back to Mothers with Small Children and Preschoolers in the form of Here's Humphrey or Hi 5 even if it's only for 30 minutes to an hour a day Monday to Friday.

No more Funniest Home Videos I personally don't find it funny to see people or animals especially Children falling down.

A decent replacement on weeknights of any sort where Nightline used to be At present time it says to be advised

Channel ten hold contracts with whoever does Jamie Oliver's shows, and I doubt they'd hand them over, least of all to Channel Nine.

A Line Up suitable for a bunch of 16 to 40 Year Olds on weeknights between 6 and 7:30pm would do wonders for Channel Nine even it means having to move News and a Current Affair forward an hour from their respective timeslots.
Some Decent Form of Thursday Night Entertainment following Getaway and Celebrity Singing Bee that appeals to all kinds of people.Presently It resembles some kind of Sausage or Penis Fest with all that Football during the AFL season.
No More of those David Attenborough Documentaries.If I wanted to see animals in their natural habitat I would either go to a Widlife or Conservation Park or to my local Zoo....Bloody Shame the Power of 10 HAD TO FAIL
I know it's a long discontinued show now but bring back Sex and the City even if they have to ditch the Footy Show or other things for it.

I do like the Two and a HALF men but it is those delays to cover the last story or two of A Current Affair before that which gives me the shits.

The Sooner they get rid of ACA and replace it with something decent the better.

Some Changes that would help Channel Nine in the long term would be the scrapping of A Current Affair and give the general public something people actually want to watch in the evenings on weeknights at that time of day.
A game show or a sitcom is a start

Bring back The Price Is Right, and Lary Emdur. Also, get a decent host and some decent videos for AFHV Show. How stupid were they, getting Shelley Craft, I don't know which one of them is more stupid. I think Shelley Craft should be working at a Boost Juice, not on TV.

I think Larry is quite happy at Seven. From what I can gather, people who leave Nine generally aren't happy with what's going on, and go to Seven and be happy and not want to leave.

Then what was Shelley Craft doing, going from 7 to 9? And Bert Newton, from 9, to 10, back to 9.

I must say two good things about channel nine. 1. They got rid of The Mint. 2. They didn't show The View for a very long time.

And now for some bad points. Their 'We ♥ TV' ads and the 'You better smile' song in the ads. That song doesn't make me feel like smiling. :evil:

The song is catchy, though. And annoying. All I can say to Nine is: "HA! You made a bad deal with WIN, we now get Seven, and I've only ever seen a snippet of the WIN "we♥tv" like Seven (ha! How ironic!) times since we got Seven. So, SCREW YOU!"

Ahem.

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

I personally can't stand ACA or Today Tonight.I suggest both go to the scrap heap the sooner the better and get in something that will appeal to everyone between the ages of 13 and 40 who don't care for Politics or Current Affairs.

The Price is Right coming back would be a good start for either Seven or Nine
Over at 7 try Scrubs or American Dad or Family Guy even Kath and Kim or My Name is Earl
For the Nostalgics That Seventies Show
Seinfeld
Married With Children
Roseanne
Everybody Loves Raymond
Caroline and the City

These are some suggestions to either network for the Early Evening Line Up

If they must keep either of those Current Affairs shows on put them along with the news services an hour earlier
