Axed: Couch Time
ELEVEN hosted segments will end production on March 31, after a 6 year run.
ELEVEN is ending its hosted Couch Time segments featuring Brissy presenters Billy Bentley and Carina Waye.
TEN told News Corp the show would cease production on March 31 due to a “reallocation of resources”.
“Network TEN would like to sincerely thank Billy Bentley and Carina Waye for their hard work and commitment to the show, and wish them all the very best for the future,” a spokesman said.
Couch Time has been a part of the channel since its launch in 2011, first with Jason “Labby” Hawkins and Stewart “Stav” Davidson.
In 2013 TEN was locked in a legal battle over the title with Perth Community TV presenter Fred Mafrica, who had trademarked The Couch, eventually resolved between parties.
In Queensland, TEN still produces Totally Wild, kids cooking show Crocamole, cartoon variety program Toasted TV and science show Scope and TEN Eyewitness News.
