How to save Channel Ten

Dr Mumbo takes no joy in the demise of Ten.

He does, however, enjoy the potential programming outcomes which could result from the network’s financial woes, as demonstrated by the #FixNetworkTen hashtag on Twitter.

Arr Twitter hashtags, thinks Dr Mumbo, the place all echo chamber occupants can turn to for a giggle and guffaw when all is not right in the world.

Dr Mumbo’s favourite suggestion comes from AdrianCutts (@LYBASkw) who uses The Simpsons – a show Dr Mumbo notes Ten often turns to in times of trouble – who suggests we replace CEO Paul Anderson with “A guy named Lenny”.

Adrian wasn’t the only Tweeter to turn to suggest Ten’s saviours may appear in the form of animated Springfield residents, with Dr Mumbo’s pals at The NT News suggesting a slight programming tweak would solve everything.

Other solutions were more practical – although Dr Mumbo notes not necessarily more achievable.

Dr Mumbo, who is currently on the search for Lenny, wants to thank The Guidefather (@SteveMolk) who appears to have started the movement.
