Airdate: Santo, Sam & Ed’s Sports Fever

By David Knox on January 23, 2012 / Filed Under Programming 21

Next Monday night Seven will premiere Santo, Sam & Ed’s Sports Fever.

The sports panel show featuring Santo Cilauro, Sam Pang and Ed Kavalee will air at 10:45pm* Monday January 30th, one night after the Australian Open Men’s Singles final.

Dissecting global sports news and events, this will be a weekly one hour, live program and follows on from Working Dog’s 2010 outing for SBS, Santo, Sam & Ed’s Cup Fever.

While the timeslot isn’t exactly in the hot zone, the good news is there should be less pressure and more room to roll with the punches.

*updated.

    This looks about as entertaining as wet particle board.

    So straight after Q&A right? I could get behind that.

    for me this type of show should be on during sporting events (i.e world cup,Olympics/comm games,). I would have put this show on 7TWO/Mate at around 9pm and replay the show on 7 later at night.

    so glad to see Santo (Snato) back on tv !

    Was thrown for a second though … at first glance, I mistook his thumbnail pic on the tvtonight front page as Dustin Hoffman. #needsglasses

    I hope Rob Sitch will be back doing more character work. Takes me back to the days of The Late Show.

    Dr Rudi – remember the Dream with Roy and HG? That was on at a similar time and it was a great show and rated well.

    Awesome news thanks for the heads up

    It seems like a mistake not to have launched this program on Sunday night after the Men’s final!

    Anyway, I look forward to seeing how they go, I enjoyed the program when it was on SBS. Ironically, it will link up nicely with SBS’ The World Game on Monday nights, creating a good sporting programming bloc.

    Great to see the boys back on the box, really looking forward to this one. I only hope there is something good for the Snato fans.

    Not long to go now. I’m looking forward to this show
