Movie quiz show for Rove?
Let's hit the pause button on a talk-show revival, with more speculation on Rove's plans with Nine.
Early reports suggesting Rove McManus would be reviving his talk show may have been a little wide of the mark….
The budget required for a fully-fledged “Tonight” show is an ill-fit with the potential numbers a late-night slot can deliver, but Rove McManus is nevertheless understood to be in development on a project for Nine.
According to showbiz reporter Peter Ford, the more likely outcome is a Movie Quiz with a celebrity panel.
Nonsense about Rove doing a late night/Tonight Show on 9. A weekly movie quiz show with celeb panel? Much more likely scenario.

That probably fits better with a pre-record schedule too, allowing him to continue his 6am Rove and Sam show on 2DayFM.
Nine isn’t alone in pursuing plans for late night content with Seven also rumoured to be in development on a new project.
This year is trialled the NZ based clip show Best Bits but it proved to be short-lived.
