TEN launch new chat show with radio hosts
'This Week Live' is going to be a new studio-based, one-hour, topical chat show starting at 9.30pm July 24 on Ten.
The show looks at the events of the week through the eyes of comedians. The main hosts of the show are Tom Gleeson, radio stars Meshel Laurie, Dave Thornton and Tommy Little along with special guests, live crosses and sketches.
Nova drive host Meshel Laurie said: “I’m cautiously optimistic that a Christmas Party car-pool with Ita Buttrose is now a very real possibility for me. I’m humbly stoked.“
ex-Mamamia Today host Dave Thornton said: “The other night I got drunk on Ebay and purchased a second hand life size robotic dinosaur from @clive_palmer_yolo and I really need this cash. Hopefully this is a great stepping stone to accomplishing my dream of playing a goofy medical intern in Offspring.”
Nova's Tommy Little said: “I’ve never had a job so I’m just excited about having a desk and a car space, getting to create a show with the three funniest people in the country is a bonus, I guess.”
Tom Gleeson said: “I’m 39 and bald. I don’t belong on television but someone’s paying me to do it, so I’ll turn up. I’m excited about this show because it’s live. I can say whatever I want, and then a million people hear it. TEN isn’t excited about this.”
This is the second Ten TV show Tommy Little is going to be in after the announcement last week of him hosting 'A League of Their Own', another comedy panel show focussed on sport. See more here.
