Happy Feet is crap. I can't believe they've churned another one out.

So, Graham Norton is moving to Ten. Shame we've seen them all.

Funny how the ABC find all the good programs and eventually the main stations pick up on them!

lol, thats true about abc's good shows and commercial tv (eventually) picking up the rights to the shows.

Sure, most of the episodes of Graham Norton will be ''old'', but hopefully it works for Ten on Saturday nights in 2012, now without it's AFL Rights. I hope Ten sticks with the show for the long run.

Hey! I thought I was the only one who thinks that ... as much as I "get" animated films (talking/singing/dancing dogs, cats, fish, birds, zebras, cars, toys, whatever) I just didn't get Happy Feet. It bugged me enormously ... :x

According to TV Tonight Ten is fast tracking this show.

Graham Norton now on TEN

TEN will premiere The Graham Norton Show, formerly an ABC acquisition, from 8:35pm Saturday January 14th.

It will air in between two movies, Ice Age (6:30pm) and Mercury Rising (9:35pm).

There should be 13 episodes remaining in this series with first guests likely to be Gerard Butler, Karen Gillan and Noel Gallagher. Also set for January are Andrea Riseborough, James D’Arcy and Madonna.

But will Norton connect with TEN’s audience and is he enough to salvage Saturday nights?

Fast-Tracked directly from the UK the irrepressible Graham Norton showcases his wickedly cheeky sense of humour and fast-paced interview show.

I can see this not lasting. The fact that it is programmed in between two movies just makes it look like a rose between two thorns. I guess they can't put the show on any earlier but it would have been great if Ten had tried to improve their 6:30-8:30 schedule and offered something other than a movie.

The other thing that will bug me is that it is a BBC show shown on a commercial station, so they will have to put in ads which will bug the crap out of me!!!!

I only saw this the other week, thankfully I had recorded it so I could fast forward it. My partner gave up on it after only a few minutes, but it was one of those i had to keep watching to see why everyone else thought it was that great, and in the hope of maybe something exciting happening - but no, like I said, and you said, it was crap!
