The show is out at 6pm this Sunday but will return after Easter in a late-night slot (hmm where has that been suggested?) and a new one-hour format described as “later, longer and definitely looser than ever before.”
“For us, later night feels like a more natural fit” said host Tom Gleisner. “This, coupled with changes to the Racial Discrimination Act, means we can now have a lot more fun with the week’s news”.
Working Dog’s Executive Producer Michael Hirsh adds: “Since starting the show we’ve come to realise that it’s better suited to later night. We’re delighted that TEN are giving us the opportunity to continue the show in a later slot.”
In February Gleisner told TV Tonight the show was lucky to have an open-ended run with the network.
“As I understand it there’s no end-date as such, but we know in television that nothing is a guarantee. As long as we don’t totally run the network off the rails I think they’re happy for us to chug along,” he said.
Modern Family will air this Sunday at 6pm.
