In recent years, Seven has moved H&A around quite a bit. It no longer airs at 7pm five nights a week - the Friday episode has been replaced by footie or Better Homes and Gardens (depending on the state) for some years with double episodes showing on Thursdays instead. Often the Thursday episodes are pre-empted in some states by sport too so it’s not uncommon for triple episodes to air on some weeknights. Occasionally it has been moved to 7TWO with a late night encore on the main channel. I think ratings have suffered because viewers either don’t know when it’s on, or can’t commit to 90 minutes in front of the telly. The episodes are written as half-hours, so cliffhangers etc are undermined by Seven’s scheduling.
I personally haven’t watched it for many years - the programme has changed so much since the 90s/early 00s it’s barely recognisable.
I can’t see the axe falling in the immediate future though - most likely Seven will experiment with different scheduling (a regular 7pm timeslot on 7TWO, perhaps - as suggested in the article?). However, The Project which runs 6.30-7.30 on Ten is most likely to be pulling in the demographic H&A is aimed at, so maybe a completely different timeslot is the answer.
