Seven keen for second Hey Hey special
After bumper ratings, the time capsule of Hey Hey it's Saturday episodes may yield another 50th special.
There may be more in store for nostalgic fans of Hey Hey it’s Saturday following bumper ratings of 1.2m viewers.
Seven CEO James Warburton this week told Mediaweek, while the 50th special attracted many older viewers, there were 400,000 24-54s watching.
“We will look at doing a part two and there might be some content for 7plus too.”
Angus Ross added: “It was an amazing result for Daryl and the team and they should be really proud of generating a massive result like that on a Sunday night with very heavy traffic.”
Recently Daryl Somers told TV Tonight, that 30 years of footage was impossible to cram into a 90 minute special.
“I said to Seven, ‘If you wanted a series we could provide it, because I’ve left so much on the cutting room floor, it’s ridiculous!’ he said.
Somers also relaunched the heyhey.tv website with subscriptions for fans to see old episodes, but a few freebies available on 7plus may work as a ‘win / win’ promotion.
