Kuttsy's Pitch: Fixing Seven Brisbane's 5:30 dilemma.

Sitting down at home, bored as a sack of potatoes, I thought back to an post I was supposed to feature on here, around a year ago, concerning Ten's 7pm post Big Brother. I never started it, but it got me thinking, with the recent lows Deal or No Deal has been getting in Brisbane, if say, Seven were to move Deal to 5pm, what would Seven put at 5:30...

Note: These suggestions are only theoretical.

Kuttsywood's Couch's 2nd annual guide to Daylight Saving FTA delays in QLD.

"It"'s back for 2009/10. Of course I am referring to Daylight Saving, which Queensland does not have.
This post was so popular last year, that the people at DS4SEQ (aka the Daylight Saving For South East Queensland political party, here in Queensland) used it as a effective source, and help spread the message of the "true" cost of having no Daylight Saving in Queensland in a networked TV world (losing ad share), being delays, by the bowlful.

This year there is a main difference, with the addition of schedules for commercial digital multichannels One HD, GO! and Seven's new SD "72" schedules due soon, as well as detailed analysis on cricket, SuperGP, tennis and Sydney's NYE telecast times and delays.
