Already having won 3 of the last 4 weeks in Melbourne, the Mick Molloy-hosted show will now have 2 weeks unto itself to win over more viewers.
Yesterday Nine announced Eddie McGuire would return to The Footy Show as host after a 12 year ‘absence ‘ (he has made occasional guest appearances). Craig Hutchison is now out, but remains with Footy Classified.
McGuire Media will co-produce the show with Nine, with McGuire set to bring over FOX Footy personalities as a win / win for two broadcasters.
But having no episodes this week and next plays well into The Front Bar‘s hands as it continues to gather steam.
Nine will now offer a replay of the 2012 movie Skyfall in Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth. In Sydney & Brissy the later slot is filled with World’s Funniest Videos Top 10 Countdown.
