My 3rd segment Talking TV with Jabba & Shano on C91.3FM - and sadly my last as this was Jabba's last show. D'oh (I seem to attract segments on shows that are finishing up)! A shame because it was lots of fun to talk to these guys. Lots to talk about, though, even outside the ratings period proper.

On the eve of the first Ashes Test, king of spin Shane Warne will be back in action hosting Warnie, his own entertainment chat show, from Wednesday, November 24, at 9.10pm on Nine. Michael Parkinson and Andrew Denton may not be looking over their shoulder just yet, but there’s a new chat show host in town. Shane Warne, the affable, fun-loving, retired spin-bowling sensation, is bringing his own brand of interview style to Australian viewers this summer in five star-filled programs for the Nine Network. Warne will talk candidly with some of the biggest names in international music, many of whom are his friends. He’ll enjoy relaxed one-on-ones with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, superstar Sting and Dannii Minogue.
