The move would seem to indicate The Sunday Project will run for just half an hour, unless it moves to 6pm. That could spell disaster for the show if it trying to compete with Nine and Seven’s 6pm news offerings. Last night The Sunday Project was 10’s highest rating show with only 278,000 (and that is the 7pm coding only, it does not include the 6.30-7pm portion of the show).

The move reeks of desperation and is unlikely to achieve any gain as it is still up against Married at First Sight and My Kitchen Rules. A move to 6.30 might have actually made a difference but we will (presumably) have to wait until the following week for that one.

The news is so fresh that at the time of writing the official twitter page has not been updated.
