The ABC’s Insiders will remain on air until December 17 — the day after the Bennelong byelection in Sydney. Insiders is the premier political chat program in the country and the highest rating day-time program on TV. It was to have gone on holiday on December 3 as scheduled after the New England byelection the day before. Now it has been given two more weeks to talk about a poll that will keep Canberra nervous for quite a while, especially if the same-sex marriage bill hasn’t made it through the House of Representatives by then. Insiders had 551,000 national viewers yesterday — 376,000 on the ABC’s main channel and a high 175,000 on News 24. With those figures, and the program’s ranking, it was a sensible decision to keep it going until after the Bennelong poll. Nine, Seven and Ten have abandoned the space to the ABC on Sunday mornings.

    Erm ..Cough. I *may* be mistaken, but I think you’ll find that Paul Kelly at the Opera House was broadcast live. Not a repeat.
    Whatever, it was certainly the standout program all weekend.

      I was just thinking the same thing – the assembled audience at the SOH last night must have been disappointed then… Best TV I’ve seen in ages
