With the scent of lousy TV programing in the air, the ever-present danger of accidentally watching the Rankin Bass Little Drummer Boy special on the TV, and the un-distracting, tinsel-less Festivus pole assembled in loungerooms everywhere, it has become quickly apparent that Christmas is upon us.

On this weeks show we look at the last gasp of television news prior to our end-of-year reflections on telly from throughout 2010. In particular, Dennis and Dan discuss:

  • The more than likely demise of Hey Hey It’s Saturday.
  • Grant Blackley gets a promotion
  • You Have Been Watching – Down Under
  • The SA regional analogue shut-off
  • Local content is under review.

As always, we look forward to receiving your mail and check us out on the Twitter / Facebook. You can also find the podcast on iTunes (please leave us a review, it helps people find the show).
