It ended the year under a cloud, but panel show favourite Before The Game will remain on Network TEN.
The Roving Enterprises show will resume on March 24 in a regular 6.30pm timeslot, despite TEN no longer retaining AFL rights. It will air in Melbourne on TEN and in all other markets on ONE.
The entire team – Dave Hughes, Andrew Maher, Mick Molloy, Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann, Samantha
Lane and Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald – will return.
Panelist Dave Hughes told the Herald Sun, “People were all the time asking ‘is the show coming back?’. Once we knew the draw and that there was no live footy on at that time, there was no reason to not have the show back.”
David Mott recently told TV Tonight, “Certainly we want it to come back for Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. It’s a great brand and one we love. There’s life in it for TEN even though we don’t have the AFL. It’s a great show for Saturday night.”
Last month TV Tonight readers also voted the show their Favourite Sports show on the box.
