They will now be seen at the new time of 6:56pm Thursdays on ABC1.
Confirmation of the change follows on-going speculation about whether they would be returning to the current affairs show.
Last year Clark and Dawe marked 25 years of their mock interviews, 11 of which have been with 7:30.
ABC had previously denied it would be dumping the duo, but it’s now clear that rumours of changes to 7:30 were on the money (that’s almost worthy of a mock interview in itself).
Segments will also be played on ABC Radio and ABC News 24, and be made available via the ABC website.
Last year John Clarke told TV Tonight part of the charm of the segment was always in seeing the host reaction at the end of the segment, first set in stone by Jana Wendt.
“It would cut back to her and on a couple of memorable occasions she wasn’t there because she was under the desk! It was a great gift. Imagine trying to buy that response! It’s just a genius idea.
“But it’s a gorgeous thing that we do. We love doing it every week, we’ve never gotten sick of it,” he said.
Jana Wendt added, “No other segment could have allowed a current affairs show to admit that parts of what purports to be serious, isn’t.”
