There's a little story in today's SMH about the latest season of the Sopranos. The very last sentence of the article reads: "It's a shame Nine has shifted the show to this terrible timeslot, but I suppose we should be grateful it wasn't axed altogether."
I'm guessing that it was poor editing that meant the article didn't mention that Nine are not in fact showing the Sopranos at the usual shitty timeslot, Wednesday's at 11.30pm, but instead at the even shitty timeslot of midnight Monday! Bastards!
When I rang Nine to check why the Sopranos wasn't on tonight, I was told that due to "poor audience interest", the show was moving... nicely on message but what bollocks. The show would be a hell of a lot more popular if it weren't for the crap timing - I realise it needs to be screened after kiddies are in bed but midnight sucks arse!
