    TGA not returning for 2011

    Um, while it may not be 100% certain with how often Nine forgets to air shows they announce, Nine have mentioned TGA in their 2011 line up: http://blogs.crikey.com.au/whitenoise/2010/12/02/channel-nine-announce-2011/

    [03x00] September 28th, 2010 [Ashes Special]

    I suggest you do the same. There is no HD sport requirement - there are two things you are mixing up - the Anti-Siphoning rules that force sport to be shown on FTA TV and not on digital multichannels only, and the HD Quota, which is just 1040 hours a year of anything filmed in HD (repeats don't...

    Season 3 Airdate

    That's right. Nine's press release:

    If it were the summer olympics I'd agree, but the Winter Olympics are rating on par or worse than the usual 9:30pm stuff, and have been between .7 an .9m. The cutting was afwul. Nine should just let it run overtime by 15 minutes like every other show, so they can fit the ads in but show the SBS...

    What section were you in? Same thing happened to me, just stopped for a while and then started again. If I can get the camera off my sister I'll post some pics up. Didn't see anyone else with an FG shirt on. :( Was slightly disappointed with the show overall, wanted to see more of Clarkson...

    SBS's rights seemed to be for two years, so it may just be the standard term. If it goes well on Nine the BBC might try and get some more cash out of Seven or Ten.

    The specials probably aren't a good measure. SBS showed the Vietnam Special in full, as it is very difficult to cut stuff from those sort of episodes. If Nine are good they can cut out the repeat parts from the Winter Olympics special to give more time to the new ep. I just hope Nine show it in...

    Which certainly makes it seem very good for how much it cost, and I'd suggest it also means, a modest amount extra would be able to get them near perfect. That said I doubt the $100,000 an ep. I'm sure I saw a figure saying that it costs Ten $60,000 to show a Simpsons repeat (where Two and a...

    I'd always assumed that him being chosen late was the reason most of TGA S2's challenges were Steve and Warren, but perhaps his scheduling was more the reason, which would add weight to him being gone. Which would be a shame, he fit in very well. The problem is that all of them currently fill...

    Nine would get a lot of plus points if they showed the whole episodes. BBC make an musically edited version with nothing cut for iTunes, no reason they can't show that one. It would be funny if we only see some of those things in the preview as part of the preview (especially the news). Did...

    I want to see the ones they don't approve. Surely they have to announce something soon? It is a month until Top Gear Live and Nine will have got the rights to Top Gear in a week once SBS finish with it.

    End of this year for Regional SA. Though you could always get a sat dish now and try to get a card that's enabled for Imparja.

    Only some rounds are on Ten, and usually at a much later delay.

    Why can't Nine just have a go with the current presenters and see how it rates with some money behind it, then if it fails they can mess with the hosts.

    Well any small bit is probably worth mentioning now, from James' twitter: Though surely if Nine were keeping the current TGA presenters they'd have told us by now.

    Hoping they just copied that from the NZ page which also lists him.
