Blog Meanderings

20 Jan

Dear Channel 10, I just thought you’d like to know that the NCIS fans here in Australia are getting restless.

How do I know that?  Because in the last seven days hits on my blog post from 3rd October 2013 ( https://margysmusings.wordpress.com/2013/10/03/ncis-in-australia/ ) have gone totally berserk.

The blog post in question was about why I didn’t think NCIS season 11 was going to be properly fast-tracked, unlike Homeland and assorted other pieces of drivel disguised as drama.

Oh, and I think people want more of the Graham Norton Show too, because he’s the other topic that’s been repeatedly hit on this last week.  All three blog posts I did on the Graham Norton Show have been read avidly.

Basically, viewers appear to actually want new shows… not the assortment of repeats 10 is currently inflicting on the viewing public.  Non-ratings period be damned!  Channels 7 and 9 are actually showing some new shows – so why isn’t 10?  Admittedly Channel 7 currently has the Australian Open Tennis, and Channel 9 is flogging the cricket horse to death – maybe 10 has just given it up as a bad job.

It’s nice to think that people might think I know what’s going on at Channel 10.  Personally I don’t think ANYONE knows what’s going on at Channel 10.

I’m just a woman with a computer and an opinion and I’m not afraid to wield either.

As to my opinion on new NCIS and the Graham Norton Show showing on 10 – I don’t think we’ll be getting much of anything until the end of February/beginning of March.  Why?  Because Channel 10 has the pestilential Winter Olympics from Sochi.  Boredom by any other name.  But until those are over we can kiss goodbye to any chance of decent programming on Channel 10.
