New ABC Comedy series Tonightly with Tom Ballard has been renewed for a second season.
An ABC spokeswoman confirmed Tonightly‘s current run will wrap on Friday May 4 and return on Monday, June 18.
The series has attracted good viewer feedback and management support despite its small audience, last night at 36,000 viewers. As a vehicle for Ballard it is defiantly snarky and can hopefully find an audience through word of mouth.
However it has also copped some criticism from Communications Minister Mitch Fifield and a mention during Senate estimates, which fittingly prompted Ballard to cheer on air.
Comedian Dan Ilic, whose most recent work includes US based Fusion TV, is now executive producer for the show, which is reason enough for pollies to be even more nervous.
And probably Michelle Guthrie.
