Santo, Sam and Ed get Seven fever
Another SBS show is headed to commercial telly, this time with Santo Cilauro, Sam Pang and Ed Kavalee.
Santo Cilauro, Sam Pang and Ed Kavalee will front a new Sports Fever! show for Seven.
The three who hosted a World Cup Fever series for SBS will host the weekly comedy show celebrating sport from Australia and around the world.
The humble Working Dog show aired lived in front of an intimate audience from ACMI at Federation Square. It was defiantly loose and worked due to the rapport of the hosts, without ever aiming too high.
But this marks yet another occasion when SBS loses a show to a commercial broadcaster.
Seven announced the Sports Fever! show would be hosted by Cilauro as part of its 2012 Programming Launch, but at the time Ed Kavalee was busy with Joy of Sets for Nine.
Seven has been hunting for local sports shows ever since losing The Bounce, with several media reports Before the Game was in their sights.
While Sports Fever! won’t stick exclusively to AFL, it may be just the ticket for a chilled out double act.
