At today’s 2011 Programming launch Nine announced most of its big new shows for next year -but neglected to renew Hey Hey it’s Saturday.
Fans have been hoping for some clarity ever since host Daryl Somers told them on air to “ask a journalist” about it’s future.
So TV Tonight put the question to a Nine spokesperson who has clarified the state of play: there is still no decision.
Somers and Nine Programmer Michael Healy are due to have discussions next week regarding its future.
Outside of Melbourne the show has problems, but there is still affection for the show within Nine.
One source said the fact the show was not announced today isn’t encouraging, but there is still a 50 / 50 shot of renewal.
Nine could only announce what it had locked in today and Hey Hey is currently TBA.
