Default M-net Reality Channel?

So with the merging / terminations of channels happening, I think it might be time to consider a new channel: M-Net Reality.

Reasons:

With the merging of especially 101 and 102, series content has been lost. Where we used to have at least 6 hours of new content every weekday, we are down to 5. Moving the reality shows to their own channel, frees up space for more series to be screened.

Repeats remain an issue, especially series that can only be screened in later time slots. Moving reality would mean for instance 101 could move a movie into the afternoon slot and free up post midnight time for more repeats.

Reality shows are a constant source of EPG issues. A prime example currently is My Kitchen Rules on 101. If reality had it's own home, the EPG on series channels would be much more realiable.

The now dormant 102 channel could possibly be reality's new home...

I'm sure there is more than enough content to make this work: My Kitchen Rules, various Masterchefs, various Bachelors / Bachelorettes, and my secret pleasure (as some of you know), all the Real Housewives.

Any thoughts?

Was tried with Mnet Series Reality but that didn't work out due to low viewership

Note that this channel does not exist anymore. The reason why we discontinued it, is because it became clear that genre-specific channels do not work and customers do not like it. It is the same reason we took away the genre-specific movie channels.

We're making an announcement next week about a pop-up channel that will help you catch up on some of your viewing. No other info available at present but watch this space on Tuesday-ish.

Default Is reality primetime worthy?

With referance specifically to 101 which now says the 18:00 to 00:00 is primetime viewing: is reality primetime worthy?

Firstly, I always considered 7pm onwards primetime, but I'm not adverse to increased primetime to screen new shows.

Secondly, as you all by now know, I love my Real Housewives, so I'm not exactly against reality shows.

But, I wonder if reality can really be classed as a primetime worthy?

Yup I know and saw that. Needed to clarify for @Mad Cat why we are not going that route.
