Farmer want Australia's biggest psycho mother-In-law's advice on menu planning for a pre-wedding garden renovation gala using only ingredients earnt by a challenge on an island where you have to fish the G-bikinis from the recesses of former Netball stars?

Oooooooh, what channel are the G-bikinis on?
Multi cultural channel dumping an indigenous culture footy program, sounds like the way to go. It's only funded by tax payer money so obviously not enough greenie activist social anarchy content shown at the moment. Probably gunna put up a weekly street march n protest rally program so all the pea brained hypocrites can have an extra focal rallying point.

Odd call but it smacks of a Sydney decision. You'd think it would have to fit the NITV charter perfectly.

It’s clear just too many people were watching it. It’s SBS policy to have obscure programs that no one watches so it just doesn’t fit in anymore.

I hope Fox swoops on it. Head and shoulders about any of the crap footy shows I actually pay for (but don’t watch).

Monumentally stupid decision, wonder what's really behind this.

The ABC took on the Movie Show, time to take this one on and keep it going.

they'd **** it up for certain.

didn't it used to be NITV?

surely the logical host.
NITV is an SBS channel. Seems to be decision by NITV-SBS to axe it.
The only reason I can see from the reports is cost savings, but why cut your highest rating program? doesn't make sense

let me re-phrase this. it is likely the show was axed due to the governmment's massive funding cuts to the ABC and SBS.

Marganook with hosts Dermie and Robbo
yes you're taking the ****, but i wouldn't put it past fox to do this.

Should go to Fox. SBS are nothing but soccer.
what Sokkah does SBS show again? :rolleyes:
