Rove co-hosts Entertainment Tonight

Rove co-hosting Entertainment Tonight? Who knew?

Could the Gold Logie winner become a new regular on the show? Today he joined Nancy O’Dell on the long-running show, which aired on Nine.

On his Twitter account, Rove said: “Hands up who likes randomness? You? Good. I’ll be co-hosting Entertainment Tonight tonight. Random enough for ya?”

Regular co-host Mark Steines,who joined in 1995, was reported in March as leaving the show, to pursue other opportunities. Former X Factor host Steve Jones is also rumoured to be one of the contenders.

Rove‘s years of telly would serve him well should this be on the cards. It all looked pretty seamless from this side of the TV screen, and look, no US accent -phew.

At the end of the show O’Dell said to McManus: “Thanks so much for helping me out.”

“It’s been an absolute pleasure, let’s do it again some time!” he replied.


  1. Great to see that Rove is getting some work other in the US. A pity that I still haven’t seen it.
    Menicci I was up when the footy shows finished, but they must have gone over-time, as a Nine presents music special followed before home-shopping started. I would really like to see it.

  2. Thanks Menicci – Perth gets Alive & Cooking at 3pm and not ET so will look at your other suggestions.

    Thanks Darren for the online heads up too!

  3. jezza the first original one

    he is just playing the role of another cheesy presenter of a cheesy show in a foreign country, who cares if he makes it, these types are just ten a penny wannabees over there, what a come down for him

  4. Watched it online and was very impressed. Another string to his bow. We have had many actors and singers make it overseas but not many TV presenters.

  5. I tape it every day then watch it while making dinner. When I heard Nancy say Rove McManus I nearly dropped a saucepan! I agree with other posters in that it is a great way to raise his profile, but in reality, this type of program is not really his style. Still, it will be interesting to see where this goes.

    And Kylie (6.08pm), fear not, the first showing of ET is 3pm on Channel 9. It is then repeated the next day at 1.30 on GO. And on occasions it is also repeated on 9 in the early hours. You will find that it is on at 1am after the footy shows.

  6. It probably pays well but I wouldn’t want the job, to be over the top and talk about inane celebrity gossip everyday. I guess he could use it as a stepping stone, Chelsea Lately didn’t work out.
