Network Ten Broadcasts in February


February saw the return of the ratings season, heralded by the arrival of new shows, and new episodes for last year's successes. Inevitably, prominent amongst the tide, came a new season of The Simpsons. The arrival of Season Nine warranted the introduction of a new timeslot, with our favourite family returning to their 1995 timeslot at 7:30pm on Wednesday, 11th February. The last episode of Season Eight (4F21), which was held over in July last year, was delayed yet again.

The Sunday Simpsons hour, meanwhile, was relegated to the role of showing repeats. Although the first Sunday of the month continued on from January in showing Season Three and Four repeats, these were subsequently replaced with Season Eight and Seven repeats for the rest of the month. Each pair of episodes continued to be merged.

Finally, stripping ceased on 6th February, all of Season Six having been stripped for the first time. The timeslot was then taken over by repeats of The Nanny.


Foxtel Broadcasts in February


The schedule for The Simpsons appeared to have settled down on FOX8, with no changes or anomalies in February. All four of the streams established in January continued to screen, although no special Monday screenings took place (all the kids having returned to school).

The weekday stream took us from the middle of Season Two to the start of Season Four. Weekend mornings went from the middle of Season Seven through to the end of Season Eight, then recommenced at the beginning, getting as far as the start of Season Two. Despite protests, the Fox Kids logo continued to be used in the weekend sessions.

Saturday evenings showed odd episodes from Season Six (the even episodes were skipped because the Sunday evening scheduling was changed too late to be reflected in the Foxtel Guide). Sunday evenings showed the latter half of Season Six. In a cheeky advertising move, Foxtel began promoting Sunday evening Simpsons with, "See it here, before anywhere else." As Lisa said in the ad (sound byte from 7F18), "This is a rather shameless promotion." But potentially quite effective, as Channel Ten's Sunday Simpsons followed directly after FOX8's new timeslot.
