  • Classic parody of CNN and SkyNews.

    10
    The Chasers make their major start in television by delivering CNNNN(Chaser Non-Stop News Network) on the ABC.

    From the stories and reports they satrically cover to the segments including:Firth & Friends,CNNNN Sunrise,A Chaser Affair,The Firth Factor,Lamea*s and Fungry's.This only lasted 19 episodes with two seasons.CNNNN's slogan was "We Report, You Believe.", a parody of Fox News' slogan ("We Report, You Decide.").As well with fake ads like CNNNN Uncut where you never see the team like themselves.Check that out on YouTube.Just type CNNNN Uncut.Back then that was really only the Australian comedy with Comedy Inc,Big Bite and Kath and Kim.I hope the Chasers can bring back this series one more time.moreless
  • Funniest thing on Aussie TV.

    9.4
    In Australia most of the good comedies are imports. Aussie Comedies aren't given that much of a chance. But the Chaser team take a very funny look at the current events.



    It rips off CNN along with many other news networks. There is so much to laugh at. The main presenters are always great, they make their own commercials and preview other shows (Its basically an entire TV station in 30 minutes each week!)



    Then you have the writing at the bottom of the screen which are often jokes at the expense of celebrities.



    There is so much to laugh at on this show, it never fails to entertain. They have a new show on now called "Chaser's War on Everything" which is equally good.moreless
  • A great show, if only I knew more details about the news stories when I watched it.

    8.5
    Despite not knowing important details of certain news stories these guys mocked, I still found the show very entertaining and funny. However, there were a few tings that annoyed me.



    One things that irritates me about the show is how it's hard to concentrate on both the stories/jokes the presenters are telling and the pun-filled update-board that goes across the bottom of the screen. If it were available on DVD it would work a lot better, but viewing it when it's broadcast doesn't really help it. Actually, the news-board has hardly any funny jokes in it at all, most of it isn't too good.



    See, one thing I like about the show is when they go on the streets and ask people questions. One thing I really like was when they showed people a map of the world, but changed around the names of countries, and the people didn't notice any change (like how Australia was North Korea, and Tasmania was South Korea).



    In summary, this show is worth checking out, but it needs to improve if it wants to be classic.moreless
  • Top satire of the media.

    9.4
    CNNNN is a comprehensive satire of news coverage, from the obvious bias of the broadcasters while they claim to be impartial, to a newsbar that's too hard to follow while watching the show, much like real newsbars. Watching over the episodes the network turn into a ratings-driven circus with a horrible lack of compassion for the people it exploits is truly great satire, done with more conviction than 'Frontline' ever mustered. It's a shame the ABC only released five episodes on DVD, as some not included are brilliant (such as the '40 Years of CNNNN' and 'Terrorthon' episodes). Also includes fake ad breaks, including the sublime "That's why I'm with CNNNN" commercials.moreless
