While it’s certainly not fast-tracked (2 weeks later doesn’t fill that definition), the announcement of Ch10’s new Super Sunday line-up looks to be an absolute cracker. The return of the Emmy winning programs Modern Family and Homeland are sure to assist Ch10 with their woeful ratings (though Homeland faces a tough run against some strong competitors in the timeslot) and the launch of new series Vegas is a great decision – an engaging new drama series that’s only just premiered in the US in the last week. The New Normal may not be to everyone’s tastes, but it certainly has its share of laugh out aloud moments.

If you can’t wait for Homeland, then catch the first 25 minutes of S02E01 and whet your appetite right now…
