But there will be other ‘new shows’ for the series, including a version of BB Uncut.
A newspaper interview given by Mike Goldman and Bree Amer to the West Australian also indicates more Friday Night Live and Friday Night Download for the trio which includes Ryan Fitzgerald.
When quoted in the press last month, Goldman said he was “not allowed to speak about Big Brother.” That appears to have changed. He now looks back on Gretel Killeen’s role on the show with favour saying, “It was her show in many respects. She didn’t just get up and host it she played a big part in the making of it.
“I’ve seen some horrible things written about her over the years, her kids and what kind of mother she is,” he says. “It’s just a TV show.”
Unsurprisingly he expects Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O to don “good cop, bad cop” roles.
Dropping Up Late is an interesting move. I don’t buy the line that it isn’t a money-spinner, TV like this barely gets any cheaper to make, and Goldman did an admirable job giving the television equivalent of radio.
The show was also an opportunity to cut into late-night action as it happened in the house. How many times have we seen tantrums, love-ins, and housemates threatening to leave the house during the wee hours of the morning? Producers would often smartly ply them with alcohol in the evenings just to beef up their behaviour.
It’s odd to think that Up Late couldn’t form part of the TEN HD line-up, especially given that TEN promised “Natural extensions of TEN’s big-event franchises, such as The Biggest Loser, Australian Idol, Big Brother and So You Think You Can Dance.“
