Li Hao, deputy director of Hunan Satellite TV, said yesterday that China's State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) has suspended production of Hunan Satellite TV's popular "Super Girl" talent show for one year for running overtime. Li said that Hunan Satellite TV had recently made changes in order to comply with SARFT's requirement that episodes run no longer than 90 minutes.
Hunan Satellite TV plans to release a new lineup of shows, covering topics ranging from housekeeping to ethics to public safety. Regarding the question of what sort of program will fill the "Super Girl" time slot next year, Li said that planning is still underway.
