A Countdown revival? Not yet Molly….
Molly talks up an all-new Countdown with younger presenters. But it may be wishful thinking.
Molly Meldrum speaks for us all, pretty much, when he hopes a Live music show might make its way back to television.
This week he told Studio 10 ABC is very keen to revive Countdown.
“There is a possibility there will be a new Countdown, all young performers, all young presenters,” he said.
“Hopefully in the same timeslot 6-7 Sunday nights, repeated on the Saturday.
“I think we need it.”
But music shows don’t come cheap. ABC sources tell TV Tonight while the New Year’s Eve concert showed there was an appetite for Live music there are sadly no concrete plans for a Countdown revival.
Hopefully another NYE concert if ABC gets the contract again?
