Ch 9, PLEEEEEZ leave The Sunday Footy Show alone.
If it goes to prime time they will fa'k it up. I hope it's just a rumour.
It won't rate enough in prime time because it won't appeal to a broad enough audience, so they'd then tweak it and tweak it until it resembles the ordinary stuff they put to air in the last couple of years.

I think it's just for the Grand Final edition, I can't see them moving it to a prime time slot permanently. For one thing they would have to change the name of the show, and above all it's a review program, not a preview one. So this is a once off.

Completely agree

If they do decide to move the Sunday show to Thursday, then they will wreck and people will still watch the Front Bar
Then there will be a footy show size hole in the hearts of many on a dusty Sunday morning so they will watch Game Day (even though it’s sucks!)

Please don’t change the Sunday Footy Show

The MyRoom Telethon will go ahead on Thursday 29 August at 7.30pm, however this year it won't be branded as a "The Footy Show" special.

Eddie McGuire will host, and other presenters will include Shane Crawford and Lavinia Nixon.

Will they still do a Sunday edition of the Footy Show the day after the grand final this year?

I'd imagine they would. Would be a first if they didn't.

The thing I find disappointing is that Footy Classified never airs after the Grand Final. It's an AFL review show and AFL doesn't get any bigger than Grand Final weekend.

Yes, I've said before that I reckon it's odd that Footy Classified doesn't have a post-grand final episode.
In fact, I think someone said on here that the show could probably go for another month and talk about trades, etc
