From Close up to Closed Up: TVNZ current affairs to be sacrificed on the alter of 7pm lite entertainment
14 questions and a funeral
Oh God, what have we done? Paul Henry and Pippa Wetzell to replace Close Up at 7pm? The former cheerleader and former racist to front our main week night current affairs program? TVNZ say they want a 'lite entertainment' show instead? What the hell was Close Up? How many Happy Feet the penguin stories does management want?
Suddenly Mark Sainsbury is looking so much better isn't he? (I never thought I would ever write that line in my life).
If the answer is Paul Henry & Pippa Wetzell, was the question 'What else can TVNZ do to erode their decaying credibility'?
Why not get someone with real talent like Wallace Chapman to front the show?
Do we really want Channel 10s worn out non-rating re-tread?
How can a man who is so right wing even Australians dislike him host a current affairs show again? We all know what he'll do, he'll push it too far once again and make some jaw droppingly racist/sexist/homophobic comment and tell the rest of us that we need to get a sense of humor.
Is this really the new depths our public broadcaster has fallen to? 'The Redneck & the blonde bombshell at 7?'
Missing TVNZ7 yet?
