Hmmm...Strange.

In my TV guide it says:

9:30 Will & Grace
10:30 Will & Grace
10:50 Something Stupid (Thats the actual name of the show)
11:50 News

But I checked YourTV and it said:

9:30 Crossing Jordan
11:00 News
11:30 To Be Advised

It seems C7 has really screwed up here...

Oh my I hope you are right because if there is any show I love more than "Futurama" it is "Something Stupid". This was the comedy series containing Magda Szubanski, Marg Downey, Jane Turner and Gina Riley that preceeded "Kath & Kim" but came after "Big Girls Blouse". This show is the best comedy Australia has ever produced. And it also contains the serial "Kim's Baby" which is the follow up to "Kim's Wedding" for all the people who love "Kath & Kim" they can see where it all began for long term fans like me.

Does anyone know when channels 7's rights to Futurama expire.

If it is any time soon then we should all contact channel 10 and ask them to pick up the rights. It would be sooo cool if Futurama was on channel 10.

probably cant happen, since channel 7 bought the rights to begin with, they probably have first "dibs" on the rights, therefore they would have to give it to channel 10...

not going to happen

What about Everybody Loves Raymond. Once channel 7 has it and they only showed it during the summer when their Home and Away was not on but then channel 10 got it and not it is one of the best shows on TV (the current season is a bit boring). How do you explain that?

Thats so true Carbito. I never thought of it that way. I remeber when Raymond was on seven to begin with and I didn't know anyone that watched but i used to sit there every night...now that its on ten it has huge promotion and is on like 20 times a week and everyone watches it. I don't think even if C7 gave Futurama to Ten would they take it. I mean, it's not a viable program...to pick it up after it has been cancelled. Now, I know they show Seinfeld every summer ad nauseum but Futurama never had a real following in Australia.

yeah you are. the late show was a sketch
show on the ABC in 92 and 93  done by Tom Gleisner, Rob Sitch, Jane Kennedy, Santo Cilaro, Mick Molloy, Tony Martin,Jason Stevens and Judith Lucy. most of those guys now do the panel.
The one your thinking of is John Safran's Music jamboree on SBS.

No there was an earlier show with john safran in the mid to late 90's. It was on channel 7. i agree music jambaree was very good.

On the plus side, they are playing it "during" the ratings period now, sure its not prime time, but its on!

As I was saying about the Futurama rights, I was referring to a similar thing that happened with south park. SBS held the rights to it from day 1, but when it became popular the second time SBS aired it's first season, channel 10 tried to pick it up.

Because of its past dealing with SBS- Comedy Central gave preference to it, over channel 10. It cost SBS big time (x million $) but they were able to retain it due to the preference.

I am saying the same thing happens here, fox gives 7 is the preference because they held it previously, it would probably cost channel 10 a lot more than it is worth (especially now that it hasnt been renewed) to gain the rights to it?

Q & A ne1?

Yep, it says Futurama is on in QLD, although checking the TV Guide it claims "The Chronicle: News from the edge" is going to be shown. Weird..

All the TV guides in newspapers seem to be very in accurate, you would think they would put a bit of effort in to get thing right when they go to print.

We now have 3 sources saying Futurama is on.
Yay! It's a shame though that they are showing 1 episode.

10:00PM King of the Hill...is that it's premier on Australian TV?

I remember seeing King of the Hill, long time ago on Channel 10.
Don't really like it.
