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.

    This looks about as entertaining as wet particle board.

    How long before it is put on 7 two/mate.

    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
