On Hiatus

It's been an extraordinary year, but now it's time for a circuit breaker.

Yes it’s that time…  TV Tonight now enters summer Hiatus mode.

It’s been an extraordinary year …for viewers, for the industry and even for TV bloggers. This year was full of sad tales as production halted, the arts struggled, and we were confined to our homes.

While we learned to work remotely, I’m reminded of the words one exec generously acknowledged: that TV Tonight served as a ‘digital town hall’ keeping industry informed of news and various ways to adapt.

At one point in March I was contemplating whether to add a special Coronavirus section – it already outstrips those dedicated to Eurovision, Logies, Upfronts, Olympics, Pilot Week and Elections. Mental health was also at a big factor and it was a pretty intense year in terms of news, comments, moderating.

TVT also took no mid-year Hiatus in 2020 …so I’m looking forward to chilling and even catching up on some shows I haven’t seen.

From today the site will publish news each morning Monday to Friday, plus breaking news as required. There are still features, interviews and reviews to be published over this period.

There will be limited posts on weekends.

Voting will also get underway shortly for the 14th TV Tonight Awards! We’ve all binged a lot this year and I’ll file my annual “Top 5” soon.

Please note there may be some delays, including for Comments, Ratings and Calendar -your patience is appreciated during this time.

Don’t forget the Twitter feed @tvtonightau and continue to stay safe observing all the best advice to help keep our numbers low.

thanks, David.

  1. As always, such a great blog DK. This year has been so nice to check in what others are thinking about and knowing we aren’t alone, especially during the March – June period with such information overload every night. News non stop, which was great, yet overwhelming. So many of us seemed to be commenting similar thoughts. (And thanks Melb/VIC for all your work with restrictions. You saved us all from a national second wave, so thank you so much). Merry Xmas everyone

  2. Love your work, David! I’ve been a regular visitor since your first year and am beyond grateful for the time and effort you put into your site. Thank you for another year of high quality product! Enjoy the break and have a fantastic Christmas!

  3. Hi David, thank you for all of your hard work keeping us up to date on everything TV, especially during such a difficult year. I hope you are able to have a good rest and catch-up on all of your shows. Happy Christmas and enjoy your break.
