Not too sure. I think that was at a time when Seven were jolting from 4 to 7 episodes per week. Mon and Tues single eps and sometimes a double Wednesday then a triple on a Thursday. There was a year when the airings were very very random and all over the place. I think it was to do with a very late premiere in the year and they took a break for something.   So I think it was just a lucky coincidence for sure. 

I think that's pretty much every year these days! But I think it was early enough that the cliffhanger might have been locked in for the end of a block, so Channel 7 had to make sure they broadcast the episode at the end of that week.

But that link shows a triple episode which never happens in the UK.

Surely this means 3 episodes, the last of which is on the Friday. 

Yes, the Olympic Cliffhanger is Episode 7619. Given that Channel 5 is currently broadcasting the show in weeks of ***0-***4/***5-***9, that should be a Friday episode.

Speaking of weekly blocs in the correct order how have we in the next week or so and for sure by the Olympic finale ended up back in sync weekly? I can't seem to figure out how.

We haven't.  We've been one episode out since the death of Prince Phillip.

However, because the Olympic Cliffhanger was scheduled for a Thursday in Oz, it'll hit us on a Friday.

?? But as of this week OZ Thursday episode is landing here on a Friday and Monday on a Monday. So something has changed along the way.

And then it all goes out of sync again. Lol. Anyways for me like I posted before I watch in a proper bloc anyways. Just always like to know 😁 Just like I will never figure out how RTE in Ireland who was a complete year ahead of ITV then ended up behind channel five ( due to a legal clause ) yet they never ever went off the air for the year that it was not broadcast in the UK.

No, we haven't. It's just that Australia is even more out of synch than us, having been showing 6 episodes a week for most of the year (a triple bill on Monday or Thursday, with no episode on Friday). It just seems to be pure coincidence that the end of the pre-Olympic week is also the end of a week here.

Yeah, probably that. Because we are this week and next totally in the correct airing bloc then out of it again.
