Schedule Watch: October 19

TVNZ 1 is replacing Labour Monday’s previously scheduled 7.00 double-bill of Extreme Cake Makers and Surveillance Oz for Harry and Meghan: An African Journey. The ITV documentary will air here a week after its UK premiere. It features interviews with the royal couple as well as an insight into their work, and how they’re balancing public and private life. But the decision to release teaser clips while they were on a four-day tour in Pakistan has reportedly “baffled and infuriated” aides.

SoHo2’s American Horror Story: 1984 will end a week earlier than planned, on November 16. Sky advises this is because the 10 episodes were cut to nine. Stand-up specials Drew Michael and Amanda Seales: I Be Knowin’, and Vice Special Report: The Future of Work will screen instead over the week of November 23.

Duke’s weekend re-runs of Family Guy have switched from season nine to season 10, starting with tonight’s season opener about a murder mystery at James Woods’ house.
