Good News Week to return!
I was really tempted to make the title of this post a pun.. you know it’s been a good news week etc, but then I thought ‘i reckon every other single outlet with this story is going to do the pun.. why bother. be original. say no to puns’
So Channel 10 is bringing back Good News Week. Apparently due to the lack of US content coming through (something about a writers’ strike? i haven’t heard much about it?) they have decided to give GNW another go.
Paul McDermott never seems to stay off television for very long. He may be annoying, but he’s definitely a talented fella. He could bring vibrancy and wackyness to any dull show and make it half interesting.
Now let’s be honest. GNW in it’s 10 reincarnation wasn’t exactly great, hence it flopped last time. Please Channel 10 learn from the mistakes of yesteryear and bring this show back to its salad days. I guess it will never have the ‘cred’ that it had whilst on ABC, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be good.
I am very excited about seeing this again. Now Channel 9, bring back Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush with Tim Ferguson (and even Miss Wendy) and I will be a happy chappy. I don’t think it’s gonna happen. But I can dream.
Whet your appetite..
