There’s just a slight difference between a comedic quiz show format without carryover contestants and two serial dramas that are pretty much exclusively watched by women over 40.
They have to hurry up and get these episodes out though because they’re already getting dated… the other week Tom made mention of “treasurer” Scott Morrison.
And on a sadder note, a contestant had passed away by the time his episode went to air.
See, that would be a logical reason to suggest they shouldn’t split the season up or tape too far in advance. Drawing a link to an unrelated genre which relies on continuity on a commercial broadcaster is just silly.
Exactly right. This has happened before with other game shows and they usually only record a couple of months behind.
Watched it for the first time tonight, great show
Season 4 starts the following week 6 February at 8pm so it seems there was just one episode from season 3 left to be shown in 2019.
Which one was it?
Also keen to know if anyone watched
Could tell you but that would spoil all the fun now wouldn’t it…
Well, that’s a shame that he has quit. Gleeson was a perfect fit on this show.
Is it true or is he taking the piss?
Charlie joked the other night that he was the favourite with bookies to win a Gold Logie. Grant Denyer joked with him last year that he only won his after his show was axed. Maybe quitting his show is the next best thing.
I was thinking there’s something more to it in regard to a Gold Logie nomination too…
If it’s ridgy-didge though, it’s a real shame! Going out on a high!
I recall Tom putting out a call for contestants for the next series of Hard Quiz on The Weekly a couple of weeks ago. It can’t be that demanding hosting a show that airs for half an hour a week over two three month seasons per year.
Friday’s announcement was a stunt:
I think we all suspected this was a stunt to get himself Logies recognition. It’ll call into the question the whole voting process if he gets over the line and wins considering his involvement in winning Denyer the Gold last year.
Pretty sure it’s been called into question for many decades now
