Schedule Watch: April 28

Three has pulled its late-night Friday re-runs of Westside for the time being.

Season two of the Outrageous Fortune spin-off was scheduled to air 11.10 Fridays from May 3 but now reruns of Entertainment Tonight Weekend will fill the slot.

Monday’s Fair Go (TVNZ 1, 7.30) will be devoted to power use, from the cost effectiveness of solar panel to shopping around for the best electricity deal.

And on tonight’s Sunday (TVNZ 1, 7.30), Mark Crysell investigates the rise in food allergies and the ground-breaking research where children are now able to eat the foods that could kill them.

Looking further ahead, fans of SoHo’s Billions will have to endure the high stakes drama being pre-empted for a week: episode 10, which was due to premiere on May 21, will now screen a week later, presumably because of a Showtime pre-emption in the US.

It will be replaced by the HBO documentary about a prison boot camp for young offenders, A Rock and a Hard Place.

Appearing on tonight’s Real Time With Bill Maher (Soho 2, 7.30) will be Adam Schiff, Bob Costas, John Avlon, Zerlina Maxwell and Grover Norquist.

Booked for this week on Prime’s The Late Show With Stephen Colbert are:

  • Monday: Zach Galifianakis, Rep. Eric Swalwell, Ellie Goulding.
  • Tuesday: Seth Rogen, Ronda Rousey, Jessica Yellin.
  • Wednesday: Christina Applegate, Van Jones, Bear Grylls.
  • Thursday: Mariska Hargitay, Thomas Middleditch, Hootie & the Blowfish.

  1. Do you think they might try and give Westside reruns a crack in primetime? Or just finding another night.

  2. I wouldn’t think so, more likely a licensing or amortisation issue or opting to hold Westside repeats until nearer the next season’s premiere.
