The Australian reported this week that Naomi Robson’s manager showed her pilot of The Naomi Show to Nine’s Jeff Browne and programmer Michael Healy but they rejected it.
Nine is obviously still licking its wounds over the demise of The Catch-Up and steering away from potentially expensive shows that take time to build. This is despite reports all round that the pilot was actually pretty good.
Naomi has been so readily identified as a Seven personality, including with some notorious baggage, it may prove problematic to find her another outlet so soon.
I still sense she has been hard done by here. Naomi Robson managed to entrench Today Tonight as a successful vehicle for Seven. Where’s the love, guys?
