Ten rebrand (again) as Eyewitness News.

“In coming weeks you have a chance to be a part of it like never before – Joe Hill explains…” and then he explains nothing. He does sizzle what’s coming and he does throw to the boss who also sizzles what’s coming. As to what the change is? Well it’s a fair guess that you’ll be able to watch the news via their app on any number of devices and report newsworthy things via the same app. YOU can be an Eyewitness! For realz!

The Bachelor Australia moves to an “all new time”.

Let’s face it, the ratings & key demo results haven’t been great:
E01 (Sun 08/09) – 669,000
E02 (Mon 09/09) – 622,000
E03 (Sun 15/09) – 576,000

Ten are hoping from 7:30pm Wed 18/09/13 running The Bachelor Australia mid-week before their new drama Wonderland will be just the kick it needs. The ratings will indeed reveal all.

Hamish Macdonald announces his departure.

An interesting set of tweets from Hamish in the last 24 hours:

Finishing at Ten just as they release promos that he’s in touting the above change to Eyewitness News is bad timing, but nothing an editor can’t fix.

Where to from here is the big question and rumours abound. The suggestion with the most credibility is that Macdonald will replace outgoing ABC 702 Sydney breakfast host Adam Spencer given his much lauded fill-in spots recently. Whatever it is he’s certainly an asset to whatever media company snaps him up.

Homeland Season 3 fast-tracked by Ten.

Some good news… the third season of the stunning modern drama Homeland will air in Australia less than 6 hours after it screens in the US.

The wait is finally over. Season 3 of the highly anticipated, multi-award winning blockbuster Homeland is coming to TEN. Australian audiences can catch up on all of the action a few hours after the show airs in the US.

Starring Claire Danes, Damian Lewis, Mandy Patinkin, Morena Baccarin and Rupert Friend, this heart-pounding series is better than ever.

Three months have passed since America’s “Second 9/11”, the horrific terror attack that decimated the US intelligence apparatus and prompted a global manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist, Nicholas Brody (Lewis).

As Carrie (Danes) and Saul (Patinkin) begin to pick up the pieces of their shattered professional and personal lives, they are swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the terror attack and the subsequent search for Brody. Meanwhile, humiliated and abandoned by the Marine Corps, the Brody family struggles to cope with daughter Dana’s (Morgan Saylor) destructive behaviour.
