On Hiatus

You knew it was coming….

From today TV Tonight enters summer Hiatus mode.

This means the site will publish a morning news wrap Monday to Friday. There will be limited posts on weekends. Breaking news will still be addressed where warranted….

Please note there will also be delays to Comments and Ratings -your patience is appreciated during this time.

But fear not, there are still interviews planned plus features, reviews and more…

2012 has been a busy year with more Exclusives broken ahead of mainstream media. I was very chuffed to receive the People’s Choice Award in the Australian Blog Awards. Recently I was also included in The Age Melbourne Top 100 personalities for 2012 -much of this is due to reader and industry support.

In January the site turns 6, now with over 24,000 posts.

Meanwhile I trust you take time to vote in the annual TV Tonight Awards -thanks for all those who have already voted and left so many nice comments.

And I hope you have a great break too. Let’s do it all again next year!



  1. Have some well earned rest David, and I look forward to once again reading your website from top to bottom daily in 2013. Thanks for all of your wonderful up to date information every day.

  2. Enjoy your well-earned break, David.
    Let’s hope no floods or cyclones drag you back early as in recent years!!
    Merry Christmas and a fab 2013 to the whole TV Tonight family!

  3. I only stumbled on this site by accident after being starved of info on survivor.I find all the stories most informative.Best wishes for 2013.Cheers!

  4. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year David. Will try to control my posting ’til 2013. Great site. Read globally, such as by the CEO of TV2 Samoa who has the site link on his desktop.

  5. Merry Christmas to you too David. Enjoy the break. But oh, how I will miss logging on to your site each morning and night. Out of interest, do you know how many “hits” your site averages each day?

    Thanks for everything. See you next year!

  6. Have a wonderful and safe break David. Hopefully 2013 will include less program changes and great shows. Without you I think I would miss 99% of the changes. Thank you for all your hard work

  7. Merry Christmas, David. I hope you and your hundreds of staff writers (*cough!*) enjoy a well deserved break! Thanks again for a terrific year. I remain a loyal and grateful fan. :)

  8. Well done David on a great year. From someone who does not work in tv but has genuinely had an high interest in Australian tv most of my life your site I a must see every morning. And even several times a day keeping up with the TEN disasters since July Congratulations on everything you have achieve the past 12 months and looking forward to it all over again in 2013.

  9. Thanks David for your magnificent website, easily the Best!

  10. You do a great job, David. You break more stories than any other journo writing on TV. Your site is a daily (several times per day) must-read for anyone who works in the industry. Now have yourself a well-earned break!

  11. Dave, I dread ‘on hiatus’ time but hope your trusty group of scribes will continue to talk all things TV in 2013.

    Happy Christmas to you and all the regulars.
