Hope­lessly de­moted

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

I am fu­ri­ous with TV3. On Mon­day, May 28, I sat down just be­fore 8.30pm to watch the sec­ond part of the Olivia New­ton-John drama that had started the pre­vi­ous night. But de­spite be­ing ad­ver­tised in the TV Guide the pro­gramme wasn’t on. There was an episode of Lost And Found in its place. Af­ter a bit of in­ves­ti­ga­tion I found out that the Olivia pro­gramme would not be start­ing un­til 9.30pm. This was far too late for me as it wouldn’t fin­ish un­til 11.30pm. I have been re­li­ably told that this change was made on that same Mon­day. This is to­tally un­ac­cept­able by TV3. Not only are TV3 pro­gram­mers clearly hope­less, they also didn’t even have the de­cency to let view­ers know what was hap­pen­ing by putting a mes­sage on screen at 8.30pm. If a pro­gramme is ad­ver­tised as screen­ing at a cer­tain time then stick with it. If TV3 keeps chop­ping and chang­ing pro­grammes like this then I won’t be stick­ing with TV3 any more.
