Airdate: Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union. Bumped: Mumbai Calling.

tuWell there’s no denying who’s funny and who isn’t here. The wonderful Tracey Ullman has been announced as the replacement programme for The Chaser’s War on Everything beginning tonight.

Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union is another collection of irreverent skits that sees the acclaimed performer take on everything from Laura Bush to Renee Zellwegger (pictured) to Bollywood musicals.

ABC originally slated this over summer, but it failed to surface.

The US comedy will also replace the suspended show on ABC2 on Thursday nights.

The remainder of the series will screen on ABC1 Tuesday’s at 9:25pm beginning June 23. .
This bumps Mumbai Calling which will now have its finale (ep 7) on June 16. Unaired eps are yet to be announced.

ABC will return Chaser from June 24.


  1. I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, this is a complete over-reaction from the ABC. The Chaser may have even cracked the 2million mark this week with all the publicity.

    • Mumbai is being bumped because of The Chaser issues. Tracy Ullman replaces them for 2 of 5 eps so the balance of 3 had to go somewhere and it seems Mumbai lucked out. I’d need to check but I think there’s about 2 unaired.
