Australia’s Channel 10 to Air The Bold and the Beautiful in Primetime. (Updated!)
Updated January 16, 2009 – Fans of B&B in Australia can breathe a sigh of relief as the unpopular decision to move the soap from its 4:30 PM timeslot to 6:00 PM has been reversed.
Effective Monday, January 19, B&B will once again air at the earlier time and “The Simpsons” will return to the evening slot on the Ten.
Originally posted November 20, 2008 – Channel 10 in Australia has announced it will begin airing The Bold and the Beautiful at 6:00 PM instead of its regular afternoon slot. This decision comes after the channel has suffered low ratings during this time period with their repeats of “The Simpsons”.
Considering B&B is the most popular daytime series in the world and Channel 10 has always drawn in big numbers for it, their hopes are high that it will do well against their competitors’ news programs. The channel which operates across five mainland capital cities will make the programming change next month.
Since B&B is such an international hit, Soap Opera Fan Blog has no doubt it will do well whatever time it comes on down under.
