It looks like Terra Nova is taking another one week break in early December.I thought Ten might run Terra Nova through until the season finale in December, even though it is non-ratings period. But that break could be problematic, and the closer we get to Christmas the more ratings drop, so they might save the final four episodes for early next season. Four episodes seems silly to hold onto. Maybe they can run them as an "event" across the week before ratings begin in late January or the first week of ratings? Kind of like the Oprah in Australia specials in primetime earlier this year.

I wonder what they will do with Glee this time?

Ads for Homeland during House tonight.

House is also going on hiatus for our Summer.

Short ads for The New Girl too. Very Zoey focused.

I saw my first ad for YTT tonight. I liked the 80s loungeroom being invaded by the young modern dancers. Very clever.

I think my daughter is going to love this show.

Graham Norton doing ads for Ten too. Confirmed as coming to Saturdays. I love that it will be fast tracked, but hate the thought of ads. Meh PVR skips them anyway.

Excellent article from TV Tonight ooX

Dear James, seriously….
By David Knox on January 4, 2012

Dear James Warburton,

Welcome to your new job running my network.

My network I hear you say? Yes.

Spoiler: show
As a viewer, that’s the way I feel about my Television. It’s the way I feel about all of the channels I have watched for decades. TEN and I have been through a lot together (ask some long-standing employees about ‘pink custard’ and they’ll tell you what I mean). Execs are custodians. They come and go, but the viewer and the brand are a constant.

Last year I felt like TEN forgot about me as a viewer. It was a year of money over our relationship. TEN’s quest to shift from being a youthful network to a family network was confused by also wanting to be a news network. Goodbye Video Hits, AFL, so long Sandra Sully, The Simpsons and Neighbours got moved down the road. They destroyed Good News Week too, James. In came two and a half hours of News and Current Affairs, George Negus, Andrew Bolt. It was like they wanted me to be somebody else.

I was as sorry as everybody that Negus didn’t fire, but after 20 years of Neighbours and The Simpsons this was cultural shock. Square peg. Round hole.

They lost Hamish and Andy and then Big Brother. Rove is now on Foxtel. Shaun Micallef is doing a news comedy show for the ABC. Who was minding the shop?

Then they cloned MasterChef, a show we all cherished, into a copycat format and bugger me they went and insulted me on their biggest night of viewing by forcing me to watch The Renovators. After that genius move I really didn’t feel like watching Renovators again. And I may have taken out a little more angst by snubbing Junior MasterChef, which is a shame because the kids looked pretty talented. I just wasn’t in the mood.

They’ve replayed Modern Family so many times it’s hard to know what night has first-run episodes. Viewing should not be such hard work. Glee‘s been through the machine so many times its lost its ‘cool.’ Not sure how you can get it back.

Chrissie Swan and Ding Dong have left The Circle, dammit. What I hear of New Zealand’s Paul Henry does not encourage me (why must every breakfast show have a loose-cannon?) when you’ve got Hamish Macdonald sitting right under your nose. Hello?

Good luck with Ready Steady Cook if you decide to bring that back. Colin Lane is a nice bloke but I’ve never seen such a groundswell of disdain from readers against a host replacement (now 1270 comments and still climbing, a site record). Graham Norton was too, too fab on ABC. I don’t think he is the answer for Saturday nights, but then chopping and changing Fridays and Saturdays would be is worse.

But let me be more positive.

I do like the sound of Brothers in Arms. I think I like Underground: The Julian Assange Story even more. All the signs for Young Talent Time look encouraging. Offspring has blossomed into a terrific vehicle. I’m sorry to see Rush go, but glad Your Gen is back. Puberty Blues has me intrigued, but I’ll reserve judgement on Reef Doctors. When Can of Worms comes back without Dicko, please ask Gretel if she is busy? Funny, smart, female -does commercial TV have any room for these?

I’ll be back for MasterChef, reservedly. Your launch will be crucial. I hope it has more Mystery Boxes and less Dalai Lamas. And can we please have some fair Immunity challenges? Sorry, The Biggest Loser doesn’t attract me. Never really has.

I’m looking forward to Homeland, I’ve heard great things. The Good Wife remains underrated. Hawaii Five-0 is overrated.

So what do I want to see on my Channel TEN under our reign?

A return to irreverent telly and bold ideas. Remember ‘Tuesday Night’s a Bitch?’ Remember that Celebrity Support Group promo with Shaun Micallef and Matt Preston? Remember when Sunday nights were about event viewing? And they used to be L-i-v-e. The Project must be one of the few Live shows you have now? There’s just not that much sense of danger. Did we all grow up and lose our edge?

Please return your 5pm news to one hour and offer me something at 6pm. You could do a lot worse than returning Neighbours from ELEVEN -it would get you Drama points, no? If it means ‘What plays on ELEVEN, stays on ELEVEN’ is broken, so be it. And must new Simpsons play against new Glee? I like both, James.

ONE sends out confused signals. Is it a sports channel? A bloke’s channel? It barely even registers with me as a viewing option. At least I understood what it was when it was 24/7 sports. I quite like the way ELEVEN has shaped up (American Horror Story could have become your new Supernatural had it been on TEN), but beware: viewers are grumbling about sitcoms reverting back to episodes they have already seen umpteen times. Have you seen what they did to GO!?

For all these ideas and notions (and you can take ‘em or leave ‘em, I am only one opinion), at the core of restoring your brand after Lachlan’s year of playing ‘bad cop’ is this: Local Drama.

We afford prestige to networks based on their success in on-going local Drama series. You can play all the watercooler Reality and US imports you like, but local drama gets you respect.

Finally, please limit timeslot changes, start shows on time with an accurate EPG, don’t oversell your shows in promos, stop recycling Back to the Future and show me a network that has a sense of fun again.

You’re looking after my network now, James.

I’m counting on you.

Cheers, David.

TEN announces "Super Sunday" lineup. Only negative for me is no Homeland in that promo.

The Telegraph wrote:Channel Ten starts ratings war with its revamped sunday night schedule

TEN's Sunday Night Promo

THE new-look Channel Ten is hoping to steal the march on its competition, launching its revamped Sunday night schedule three weeks before the start of ratings season.

Having been sidelined on "gardening leave" for six months, Ten's new boss James Warburton has fired the first shot in the battle against rival network chiefs, David Leckie at Channel Seven and David Gyngell at Channel Nine.

Mr Warburton is banking on prime-time music and comedy to blitz Nine and Seven's current affairs programs, with the revamped Young Talent Time the jewel in the crown.

He declared the all-new line-up would "reset a connection point with our viewers and set the agenda for Ten, day one, every week".

In an aggressive start to the week and to the ratings year, Mr Warburton told The Sunday Telegraph that Ten's ratings season starts on Sunday, January 22, three weeks ahead of the official start of ratings on February 12.
In a pre-emptive strike to own the night, Ten will air the first episodes of Young Talent Time, featuring one-time contestant Tina Arena as a judge.

Also debuting is hit US comedy New Girl and the acclaimed US drama Homeland. While Ten has aired its new offerings ahead of the ratings season before, chief programming officer David Mott said Ten had never showed its hand this early.

"It's a reflection of Ten's determination to lead, not follow, in 2012," Mr Mott said.

"We've regained our focus, and this shows our confidence in our slate, as well as its depth. It's the first of a few announcements we will be making."

Ten's Sunday night schedule will open with Young Talent Time featuring Arena, as judge and mentor for the reboot, from 6.30pm.New episodes of comedy hit Modern Family will follow at 7.30pm, ahead of the Australian debut season of cheeky US comedy New Girl, starring Zooey Deschanel at 8pm.

The pace changes at 8.30pm with US psychological drama Homeland, starring Claire Danes and Damian Lewis.

Mr Warburton took up his CEO role at Ten last Monday, after being forced to sit out six months following a court battle with his former employer, Channel Seven, in May 2011.

He was originally to start as Ten CEO last July, but a NSW Supreme Court embargo on his working meant the former Seven Network executive was forced to cool his heals until New Year's Day.

In his first week in the job he said Ten was overly reliant on reality shows such as MasterChef Australia, with the poorly performed Junior MasterChef and the failed The Renovators expected to be axed.

Announcements on a female host to join controversial Kiwi broadcaster Paul Henry and Dr Andrew Rochford at the helm of Ten's new morning television experiment, Breakfast, and a new member of The Circle following the departure of Chrissie Swan, are also expected.

So Homeland is 12 epsiodes, and then what? Even it is successful at 8.30pm, and can get away with a two week break at Easter, what are they going to do then? Will Touch be ready?
