Celebrity Splash – Has Been Kind Of Dumped
Channel Seven have decided to flick the ‘I don’t care’ button on Celebrity Splash and are ditching Monday night’s semi final episode to amalgamate it into the grand final episode to be screen next Thursday night.
TV Tonight who as a full story on it reports contestants Denise Drysdale, Nick Bracks, Adam Richard and Koby Abberton who were due to qualify in Semi-Final 2 will now dive at the beginning of the show before a Grand Final dive.
The last episode had viewers of 831,000 which was about 500,000 less than its premiere episode. There has been no official word from SEVEN but I am presuming they are not wanting to get lower numbers in that timeslot and have people entrenched watching The Block and The Voice before their big ticket show House Rules starts.
What is interesting is I have seen shows dumped completely like Everybody Dance Now or moved to digital like Excess Baggage but I can’t remember when episodes have been dumped but then they have screened a final.
Can any of you guys think of an example of this?
