➢➢ Three will bed in its new season schedule with the February 2-8 rollout of four primetime drama series, the return of two modern family comedies and Married at First Sight Australia (which will screen within a week of its Australian launch), and the premiere of America’s Got Talent: The Champions (7.00 Saturdays) …

Squaring off in the premiere will be Bianca Ryan (first winner of America’s Got Talent), Justice Crew (winners of Australia’s Got Talent) and Susan Boyle (runner-up of Britain’s Got Talent) …

➢➢ MAFS Australia will screen 7.00 Sundays and 7.30 Monday-Wednesday. On Mondays it will be the lead-in to new US dramas The Rookie (9.00) and Designated Survivor (10.00).

  1. Hi. Is there a chance you have the dates wrong on this article and it should be 2-8 Feb? You normally do a week ahead and there’s already a post for 26 Jan – 1 Feb.

  2. D’oh!!! Thanks for your vigilance …

  3. So MediaWorks is taking on TVNZ with a smarter line-up of better-looking shows — and they are blockbuster shows. Now it’s time to over turn the tables on them. We can do the same but with better shows.
