Shaun Micallef’s Eve of Destruction

Shaun Micallef’s Unnamed Project

Shaun Micallef’s Unnamed Project will deliver everything its title promises - and more.

The ABC legend returns in 2024 in a brand new show that’s sure to delight taxpayers.

“I can’t tell you too much about what we’ll be doing” teased Micallef at a recent Senate Hearing. ’Suffice to say, it will not feature cooking, home renovations, marriage, singing, sport, RBT units, dogs, wilderness survival, quiz questions, news clips, stock footage, wearing masks, border security, amazing races, Lego, sitting on a panel or being marooned on an island in your underwear.”

The project now has a name, essentially a chat show featuring celebrities answering questions.


Shaun Micallef is back on the ABC with a chat show that’ll have everyone talking (or at least the guests)

The ABC is thrilled to announce the return of Shaun Micallef with a brand new eight-part talk show, Shaun Micallef’s Eve of Destruction, premiering Wednesday 14 August at 8pm on ABC TV and ABC iview.

It’s a talk show like no other: one question, two guests and the man everyone agrees is this country’s least experienced interviewer.

The question? If your house was about to be destroyed, what two things would you save?

The guests? Ah, but that would be telling.

Join Shaun each week as he chats with his famous celebrity acquaintances about what’s REALLY important to them.

“It’s a chance for the guest to set the agenda” says Shaun in an attempt to justify his own lack of preparation. “They bring into the studio the most significant items in their life; the things that they cannot imagine ever being without and I psychoanalyse them. I am not a certified therapist, but I think I can help these people.”

Merv from the ABC security desk raves: “A live studio audience, a set, and the former host of Mad as Hell – this show has got it all. I’m looking forward to it. Micallef’s shows always run late and I get paid overtime!”

I know for a fact he personally championed a few people and ABC showed no interest.
