Welcome MC Portia!!

Is True Detective replacing Major Crimes - Tuesday not Monday nights?? It's listed under Monday 22:00 and that's AHS - don't think that would be ending already??

I see Celebrity Apprentice is airing on Saturday at 17:00. Will it be one episode a week then, not daily like previously?
