The Roast 2014

@TheRoastTV Triumphs Over Jimmy Fallon

Finally - a timeslot we can all be proud of and depend upon. The Roast delivers very funny news parody 4 nights a week and to have a timeslot it can call its own, even if it is up against some giant programs, is recognition that the people want their Roast served in a timely manner. It also means behind the scenes they have 40 less minutes to get it all done, so... good luck with that then. From the press release: The Roast returning with all new 7:30pm timeslot After … [Read More...]

Detectives Cross and Ruiz are back for season 2 of The Bridge, burdened the scars and trauma of season 1.

Reality Check - Tom Ballard

@ABCtv Gets A #RealityCheck

CJZ have been looking for a vehicle for Tom Ballard to host (rightly so) for 12 months now and this looks to be a great fit. Certainly a great replacement for a missing Gruen in 2014... and if it is as successful as I suspect the shows would make a great pigeon pair in 2015. From the press release: Lifting the lid on the juggernaut that is 'Reality TV' to give viewers a look inside is Reality Check, ABC's new 8 x 30 minute studio entertainment series. We may froth … [Read More...]

@Rove To Co-Host @theprojecttv Until Dec 2014

It'll should certainly lift the ratings of the program through the next 5 months and that's not a bad thing. From the press release: Rove Joins The Project As Guest Co-Host. On The Desk With Carrie And Pete From Monday, August 18. Network Ten is thrilled to announce that Rove McManus will take a seat at The Project as a … [Read More...]

Please Like Me S02 - Josh Thomas

#PleaseLikeMe S02 Starts 12 August

This is such a great vote of confidence in Josh Thomas - S02 premieres shortly and the ABC have commissioned S03 already. Completely disarming and engaging S01 proved that Australian comedy can still do things differently without making it cookie cutter. Can't wait to see it. From the press release: ABC PREMIERES SEASON TWO OF JOSH THOMAS’ PLEASE LIKE ME AND COMMISSIONS SEASON THREE! ABC TV is pleased to announce the much anticipated second season of Josh Thomas’ … [Read More...]
