In news nobody wanted to hear Tom Gleeson has quit as Hard Quiz host after 4 seasons.
The show has been a huge hit for ABC since launching in 2016 with its loveable losers and droll host.
Produced by the team behind The Weekly, it has drawn strong ratings at a cost-effective price, for a TV slot that is often a creative challenge to fill.
Gleeson’s tough-love approach to comedy, also featuring in The Weekly, has seen his live performing show skyrocket. Gleeson was even credited with commandeering an upset in the Logie Awards last year. This year he has pitched himself as a potential Gold candidate.
Grant Denyer won after Family Feud was axed, could Gleeson be headed for the same glory after falling on his sword?
