This is the funniest show on Aussie television and I got to be a part of it tonight! @cheapseatsau will be on Network 10, 8.40 Aus time. Blessed to watch these legends @melaniebracewell and @timmcdonaldwastaken be utterly hilarious in person coming up with pure genius on the fly.

This is my favourite photo ever! So lucky to be able to watch @melaniebracewell living the dream and killing it here in Aus up close and personal. Don’t we look gorgeous

Great to see 10 finally getting some sports rights.

On that…surely there’s opportunity for ten to schedule some extra eps (one off specials) of this show around key events/fixtures during the year

Olympics from the cheap seats
World Cup from the cheap seats
Christmas from the cheap seats
Royal wedding from the cheap seats
Election from the cheap seats
US election from the cheap seats

Seems like they have missed some great opportunities and would be a very ‘ten’ way to mark some of these events, especially when they don’t have rights/ barely cover some of them!

This one may not be easy- pretty sure there is a stipulation for any network taking live/full coverage of royal events they can’t be used for comedy/parody.

The ABC’s coverage featuring The Chaser was cancelled after the Royal Family and BBC denied ABC access to the feed:

Despite this Nine still had Dame Edna, and The 7pm Project was doing the comedic stuff.

The restrictions were:

According to the advisory, restrictions apply to the “period from the arrival of the first member of the royal family for the wedding service until the last member of the royal family leaves the main entrance of Westminster Abbey following the conclusion of the wedding service”.

Once again he was great. Need him to come on the show at least once a month or something

What a segment with Miguel and all the “facts” and Tim telling him “don’t say that word”.
