Looks like the Discovery show has been moved to Dec 11th so as to not compete with Monday Night Football in the USA.  Saturday night is usually not a great time to be on air, but it is probably better than going head to head with MNF.  Hopefully DC will add in some promotional dollars to drive the audience to Saturday.

Thanks for the update, Andrew!

The later date does give them more time for advertising the show.

Hope so.  As yet, I've seen no mention of it at all.

I have recently seen a number of other shows about AE and the various theories....even the ones which haven long since been proven rubbish.

The Discovery Channel program guide doesn't go up to Saturday, December 11, yet.

Perhaps if there was hard evidence of her being on Niku, they would advertise little bits of info, to attract viewers, as well as advertisers.

Don't you guys across the pond know that Monday night football is a religion over here?  ;D

No, I wouldn't expect schedule listings as yet. However, I was speaking more in terms of adverts or trailers. I had really hoped that perhaps they'd spend a little more effort there.

Any publicity is better than none, I guess. So I suppose I should just be glad they have put the matter on the schedule at all.

I know they have website articles in the works for both Discovery.com and DiscoveryNews.com (because I helped them) but they don't plan to put them up until after the show airs because they're afraid that if people know what we found and didn't find nobody will watch the show. Go figure.

Ric,
I'd like to contribute $100.00 to the search - have Pat bill my credit card account- but let me know where the money will be spent i.e. DNA research, next years exploration, etc.

Hehe.....I see.  Much better not to even mention the show at all.  That way, if nobody knows that it is on...then everyone will watch it...right?  <tounge in cheek>

No...I can understand not wanting to prematurely let the cat out of the bag (even if it's not a terribly big cat)....but a few adverts would be nice.  Or perhaps they're out there and I've as yet to trip over them.

Thanks Ted.  I'd like to put your contribution toward research to define the target area for the major underwater search we'll be doing on the next expedition.

Have there been any "teaser trailer"s that have been shown on t.v. yet (or Youtube)?
