Oops. Best of 2019

And now a look back over the worst best bloopers of 2019.

Westeros meets Starbucks? That Game of Thrones coffee cup made news the world over.

ABC had big stuff-ups with a wrong episode of Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell and an audio sync problem with Gruen.

Live TV

Denise Drysdale’s phone rang during Studio 10. Sarah Harris answered the phone to discover it was Ding Dong’s cabbie confirming her 12:15 pick up.

Former PM Paul Keating made a priceless Live TV entry when Andrew Probyn and Jane Norman were reporting from the Labor campaign launch.

The Project spoke to Trinny Woodall, one half of Trinny and Susannah’s What Not to Wear duo when she dropped this clanger. Language!

As did ex Bachelor babes on Studio 10.

Points to this Russian sports reporter for persisting.

And there were those who didn’t realise they were still on the air.

Morning TV

Poor Michael Bolton, caught dozing whilst awaiting a Live cross to Larry & Kylie on The Morning Show. Oddly all videos have been wiped of this…

Samantha Armytage mispronounced the Cook Islands. “Oh no I’m going to end up on Media Watch” she gasped. Correct.


This cross over in the West went wayward ….


After the U.S. Women’s Soccer team won its second FIFA Women’s World Cup against the Netherlands, a sports crowd in a sports bar in France let rip with an expletive towards President Donald Trump. More Language!

These next few are pretty self-explanatory.

Drama etc.

Eagle-eyed viewers of US period drama Reign noticed a pair of Everlast underwear on one character.

Jimmy Fallon tweeted to his followers that he was appearing on the Today show -but included Nine’s hashtag and not the NBC Today Show hashtag.

Donald Trump got his ABC’s mixed up.

Poor Miss Universe host Steve Harvey had another blunder.

Repeat awards offender John Travolta became confused over the real Taylor Swift.

The Emmys included a very-alive composer conductor Leonard Slatkin in its tribute to the late Andre Previn.

And this angry sheep left a cameraman squirming.



Seven tried to excite clients with “timeslow growth.”

News Corp bizarrely declared The Real Dirty Dancing a ratings hit over The Masked Singer -before OzTAM has issued data. They were wrong.

Sunrise executive producer Michael Pell hit back at the Daily Mail following a week of articles over an apparent ‘elbowing’ by ex-Married at First Sight participant Martha Kalifatidis.


And finally, Good Weekend gave George Calombaris his very own halo just days after staff underpayments at his restaurants blew out to $7.83 million. They conceded early deadlines were “terrible timing.” You think?
