What a mess!!! Now SABC3's changing the schedule for tonight to air Survivor after last night's pathetic fiasco. This means that The Launch won't start tonight and The Man Cave won't air either - or so they say - Survivor will air instead apparently - at 19h30. Obviously there's no surety that this will actually happen.
