  1. Wow….what a diverse mix of opinions and discussion this has created. Everything from George was the best thing for journalism on tv for years and the demise is incredibly sad, to he’s a dinosaur. And The Project is going to be great getting 1 hour to really develop, to people wanting to vomit. Great to see the diversity of opinions. My 2 cents….why does it have to be one extreme to the other. Surely George and his crew was worth a shot as a weekly one hour show, or nightly at 10.30 where the encore did ok and would have done even better if it wasn’t just a repeated “encore”. As for The Project being an hour – I think it is worth a go. I just hope that in 6 months we don’t hear “expanding this irreverent team to one hour was bold and ahead of it’s time. Now stay tuned tomorrow night for The Simpsons”.

  2. Damn!!! 6:30 with George Negus was Good! George was the Best!!! B****y Ten’s Head of Current Affairs doesn’t know how to F*****g run a show properly. They are the ones who Killed the Show!! Not!! George Negus

  3. bugger – negus was one of my favourite shows – looks like the TV will be off at our house at that time – given the drivel the other networks pass for current affairs

  4. TEN Network, please get you act together…
    6pm/6.30pm with G N was wayyyy overrated to start with!
    Publicity overkilled! You guys actually promised that GN would expose and make extensive in depth coverage without any prejudice or opinions…
    All that didn’t happen 🙁 It was all about what we all already knew/heard/seen else where… nothing new or exclusive or that exciting…
    Some topics or issues were just pure media sensationalism or worst still, rumour/gossip mongering!!!
    TV standards in Oz is seriously going down hill!
    Don’t get me wrong… Love GN!!! But… He doesn’t fit the target audience and he’s not current enough with his choice of words and body language to relate to the general public. The show’s format is quite old fashion, to be honest…
    It’s time to retire and have some fun with mates, family and grandkids, GN…
    Retire on a high than on a low, Please do us this favour.
