Hey Hey moves to Saturday and the boss gets the bullet for Nine

Nine has confirmed that Hey Hey It’s Saturday will move to Saturdays when it returns later this month.

The Daryl Somers-helmed show returns to the network on October 16 at 7.30pm.  

After two strongly rating reunion shows, Nine commissioned a new series of Hey Hey on Wednesday nights. However it struggled to rate more than a million and the series was put on a mid year break.

According to today’s announcement from Nine, the move to Saturdays is “in direct response to audience feedback”.

Somers said: “We’ve heard the message loud and clear – viewers want to see Hey Hey back where it belongs on Saturday nights.”

Meanwhile, Nine has made a swift decision to kill off The Boss Is Coming To Dinner after two episodes, reports TV Tonight. The show attempted to combine The Apprentice with My Kitchen Rules and featured job candidates entertaining a potential employer. But it rated a dire 655,000 on Wednesday night.
