I see The Chocolate Challenge show with The Hairy Bikers has been renamed and pushed back to 10pm.
I was looking for when the final would be aired and could not see it in the 7-11pm slots any day this week. They are going to show it at 12:30am on Thursday 12th - what is the point? they have 1 show left why move it to such a stupid time slot.
I know this is more suited to Digital spy but I'm not a member there
I'm not going to watch any programme as its aired on channel 5 from here on in and will wait until a full series has aired as as I'm sick of them showing a series for a few weeks then for no reason just dropping it, changing times things are on, renaming old programmes making you think its new or adding tiny bits of new content to make a "new" show. They then wonder why things have such abysmal ratings as when it comes back months later people have either lost interest or simply don't know its on
Same thing happened with Hoarders, it was a 3 part series and they even split that up, Winter road rescue or whatever they have called it showed 2/3 episodes out of 4 and then it was just dropped from the schedule as was war on the noise next door
If I see a programme is 1/4 or 1/6 I expect it to air over consecutive weeks not suddenly go missing so they can start another new series in the same slot. I can understand them taking it off for a last minute documentary about a current event or a special week of programmes but the way they treat programme makers is a disgrace
Any time they have a Paul Connerly con series they seem to show 1 or 2 of them and then it just vanishes for half a year before they burn off another odd episode in a random time slot in a random week that nobody knows anything about. if its that bad stop making the things in the first place
This has been something thats been steadily annoying me more and more in recent months. The other 4 proper channels seem to be able to show most series in full. I know things like Dragon's Den are always split but you expect that after 8 or 9 episodes I don't expect to see a programme air 1 week then just disappear the next
