Nine’s scheduling of Crocodile Dundee II last night (400,000 nationally) after the original last Wednesday night (390,000) is yet another example of how Nine, like Seven and to a lesser extent Ten, have been exposed for their over-investment and over reliance in so-called reality programs that are now ageing and flopping (especially Seven).

Nine has used the Crocodile Dundee films to hold up Saturday nights (the least watched night of the week) on its main channel in the past and on its digital channels, such as Go or Gem. Now it's been promoted to hold up Wednesdays. COVID-19 has not caused the problem, merely added to it, and exposed viewers to the paucity of content on the commercial networks.

No wonder Netflix is booming in this country.
