The RIP thread

So true. The late 90's era of Rove on a Tuesday at 9.30 and Wednesay nite with the Panel, then the Footy Show Thursday was the last time we had anything of quality.
Yep. I know a lot of people got sick of The Footy Show (and Sam) but it was all live stuff and fun to watch, especially when they invited some players/coaches on. Don Lane Show, Bert's after Don's was axed, Dazza had a show once a week during Don's time, The Late Show in early 90s, Comedy Company and even Paul McDermott's Sideshow about 15 years ago. Anyway, as this is the RIP thread, might as well say RIP Australian Entertainment Shows.

The ABC picked up a bit of the slack but that was more game show than light entertainment stuff.

Kirstie Alley. She was great. Preferred Sam’s original girlfriend Diane (Shelley Long) but Kirstie as Rebecca was good also.

Cheers. What a great show. Great characters.
