Airdate: The Almighty Johnsons

By David Knox on December 2, 2011 / Filed Under Programming 14

TEN will screen New Zealand comedy The Almighty Johnsons later this month.

The series, created by Outrageous Fortune‘s James Griffin and Rachel Lang, began in New Zealand in February.

The show follows a student named Axl Johnson, who on his 21st birthday discovers his family members are reincarnated Norse gods. The only problem is, they don’t have full control of their powers.

The TV3 show was also renewed for a second season.

It replaces Go Girls from 10:30pm Monday December 19 and continues weeknights.

    It was great to have some NZ TV on the box!!! But where did it go? There is nothing else on the Tv worth watching. Just crime and more crime shows!!! Plse advise when this show will be back on again? How can u leave viewers wondering what’s going to happen next ….for days …weeks… months ? I agree with the comments it was not well advertised and the time slot was not that great either!!

    Love it! Came upon it by mistake really, but its a hoot. But where is it next week?? Typical Aussie TV – just stop showing something when its getting good.

    This shows hillarious the best show over the summer season.Who would have thought that Norse Gods domiciled in NZ would be such a hoot. Don’t kow who I’d rather be Odin or Olaf.It is a shame they are playing it so late.

    well, it’s about bloody time to finally get some more interesting television, which is fun and very much leaves you wanting more! really like that they are playing it every weeknight! so it’s not australian product, but hey, they’re pretty close to us , so i’m cool with that, better then more american crime/murder series.
    the guys are fun and entertaining, and the girls are nice to look at…

    This was my favourite show of 2011. Little disappointed it’s got a fairly low-key slot, but who watches TV live anymore anyway?

    Ch 10 sux.

    They are only playing this series to get Aussie Drama Content Quota Points … taking advantage of the stupid loop hole that allows New Zealand produced programs to qualify.

    Shame! Shame! Shame! Channel 10.

    Produce some good Aussie drama or renew Rush.

    How about a new E-Street type of soap or a 6pm soap.

    Can’t believe they’re burning this out over summer. It would’ve done great on Eleven with the right promotion!

    Love this show but it certainly won’t be to everyone’s taste. Sooo glad Ten are finally screening it and can’t wait for series 2.

    Not a bad show, but a bit of an odd one – it seems to wander somewhere between an adult light drama and a teen after-school comedy-drama (the Goddesses particularly are a bit “teen-show villain”). Fun, though, with a good premise well played and some outstandingly thoughtful and funny moments. I’m quite enjoying it.

    “Grandma! What the f*** you doing out here?”
