The Ten network today launch their new digital multi-channel Eleven at 11am this morning. If you haven’t tired of being told to ‘Say He11o to Eleven”, it m4y b3 w0rth y0ur whi13 tuning in.

Ten-announces-ElevenEleven launches with an episode of the excellent Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, which will have some form of Eleven mention in the broadcast. With CBS taking ownership of what I believe is a third of the channel, it’s certainly in their interest to do what they can to give the channel a boost.

While yes, the line-up is largely US repeated content, there is a lot of really solid programing on the channel, including new episodes tonight of Californication (less that 36 hours after the US broadcast, which is great).
