Eight former recipients of Logies will compete in a special episode in the week preceding the event. There’s some pretty camp names in the mix: Jeannie Little, Denise Drysdale, Johnny Young and of course Bert himself.
Others include John Wood, John Blackman, John Paul Young, Jane Allsop and Little Pattie.
What on earth did Blackers win for? Best upstaging puppet?
Feud was rested over the Easter break, possibly to trial Antiques Roadshow into the 6pm News. From what I hear, the antiques didn’t do so well. This leaves Nine with an ongoing 5:30pm problem and it’s affecting the all-important Nine News which sets the pace for the rest of the night. I can’t help thinking Bert would be better slated at 5pm away from Deal and then bring back Friends or Frasier.
Showbiz friendships are on the line when BERT’S FAMILY FEUD celebrates the 2007 TV Week Logie Awards with a special Mad Monday, April 30 at 5.30pm on Channel Nine.
They are household names around Australia: Logie winners John Wood, John Paul Young, Johnny Young and John Blackman, battling the buzzer reflexes of Denise Drysdale, Jane Allsop, Jeannie Little and Little Pattie.
Between them they have won 21 TV Week Logie Awards, including four gold. Host Bert Newton takes that tally to 32, having collected 11 Logies himself – seven silver and four gold – as well as being honoured with an entry in the TV Week Logies Hall Of Fame in 1988.
Out of their comfort zone, and quite often out of control, the Logies stars deliver an episode full of laughs with true showbiz pizzazz.
There are more than a few oohh-ahhs from Jeannie Little, who struggles against quick answers from Johnny Young.
John Wood takes on former Blue Heelers co-star Jane Allsop, while JPY hopes to finish on a high note against Denise Drysdale.
Entertainment legends go head-to-head in what promises to be one of the most entertaining episodes of BERT’S FAMILY FEUD this year.
Bert Newton is nominated for his fifth TV Week Gold Logie Award.
