Network Ten Axes 6.30 With George Negus, Replaces With One Hour Format of The 7pm Project

The 7PM Project Moves to 6:30 Timeslot in a One-Hour Format

Goodbye, The 7PM Project. Hello, The Project! Today Network Ten announced that they will be extending The 7PM Project from its half-hour format into a full hour, which will air weeknights from 6:30 p.m. under the new moniker The Project. One of the show’s anchors, Charlie Pickering, said in a statement, “Ten has given us more time and we’re not going to say no. Carrie [Bickmore], [Dave] Hughesy and myself have always got something to say and whether or not the world needs to hear it we’re just glad to have the extra half hour to say it.” The program presents the day’s news in a funny, more conversational tone, and is the no. 1 weeknight news service for the 16-39 year-olds demographic in Australia. The day’s headlines are discussed by a panel mixed with different TV personalities, while visiting Hollywood stars often drop by for a chat with the hosts.

Naturally, this means current affairs program 6.30 With George Negus has been given the axe, but the network says the veteran reporter will still have a role with Ten, and will join The Project as a regular panellist. George said, “Though sadly 6.30 has come to an end, I’m looking forward to getting back with my mates at The Project. They’ve also broken new ground with their irreverent approach to what’s going on around us, it’s my kind of tongue-in-cheek program.” What do you think of Ten’s decision to give more air time to Carrie, Charlie, Hughesy and co.?

The Project will kick off its 6:30 p.m. start time from Monday, October 31.
