Terminator 4: A Brief Review Ashes Coverage

TV Notes for a Wednesday night

July 8th, 2009 at 08:07pm

The big question on my mind tonight is whether the 90 minutes series final of Thank God You’re Here on Seven or The Ashes on SBS Two will win the ratings for 7:30pm to 9pm tonight? I’m tipping Thank God You’re Here, and I expect the ratings for The Ashes to pick up later on and definitely win the wee hours. Not that I really care about The Ashes at this stage…a bit later on in the series perhaps.

I was also quite amused to be informed in the first ad break during Thank God You’re Here that Seven will have full coverage of Michael Jackson’s funeral on Wednesday, starting with a special early start to Sunrise at 3am. This only minutes after the extended edition of Today Tonight finished. Somebody schedule a promo for the wrong day?

And every time I see a Hyundai ad with Mark Ferguson, I’m reminded that I wonder if his new contract with Seven will prevent him from appearing on other networks? And if so, at what cost to them? It’s a clause which Nine either forgot or couldn’t afford.

Oh, and I see that the Sci Fi Channel has changed name to the SyFy Channel (thanks to Casey Hendrickson for the tipoff). Stupid name change and a half, and they get to sit in my bad books for a while for cancelling Stargate Atlantis at the end of Series Five when it was really hitting its stride.
