David Tench Tonight

Show Summary

David Tench Tonight is a television talk show host in Australia, who is changing the way we view the world's biggest celebrities! Every Thursday night, David Tench will ask the biggest names in film, TV, music, comedy and fashion the questions that we all want to know the answers to. With big names like Nelly Furtado, Pat Rafter, and The Veronicas in the first few weeks, David Tench Tonight is set to be Australia's favourite talk show!

David Tench Tonight is the first show in TV history to be seen by the celebrity guests in real time. It uses motion capture technology which means that the guests can see him when filming rather than David Tench being dubbed in later as animation.

Like other comedy talk shows, in David Tench Tonight, there are segments of games and recurring sketches:

Return Fire David will read a letter from a made-up viewer and respond controversially.

For Legal Reasons David says some controversial things that his Lawyers & A celebrities lawyers tell him to apologise for.

Last Burst of Tench David finishes the show with a brief, controversial statement.

A Tench Thought A random thought by David.

You Got Me, Dave A random prediction if a celebrity came on the show. Most notably, calling a Germaine Greer a revolting old reptile for insulting Steve Irwin.

    • A waist of time...

      When all of the clever adds came on months before this show started with all of David Tench's clever quotes, the whole of Australia was hyped up about this show. When the first episode came on, not many people liked it but I fell for it. Every episode I liked it less and less and around the 8th or so, I completely hated it and that's what I am basing this review and rating on. David Tench was so annoying in this show, he had all of these planned conversations and his voice was so annoying. He kept on looking at the camera and doing these weird things. The concept of it isn't great either.moreless
    • David Tench is a waste of time.

      The reason why David Tench tonight was created was that Ch.10 were losing viewers and created this rubbish. Channel

      10 think it's getting more viewers it's not. David himself is so annoying.I would have to agree David Tench is so annoying and poor rated.It's needs to be axed. Just have Rove Live Channel 10.
    • This show makes a person look forward to the adds, it's just that bad.

      I don't find this show creative or original in the slightest. The concept has been behind many childrens shows for many years. It should have stayed in childrens shows.

      Unfortunately, the writers behind the script of David Tench seem to have been standing behind a door when the humour was handed out. The 'celebrities' (and I use the term loosely) who must be forced to go on the show look uncomfortable and must find it difficult to force laughter at the poor jokes.

      It's one of the worst shows I've ever seen and I hope Channel 10 soon comes to it's senses. I'd rate it a zero if I could.moreless
    • And I thought 'the Wedge' was the worst show on Australian television.

      Australian Comedy is officially dead with the introduction of 'David Tench Tonight'. The half-hourly show features D-Grade or lower celebrities that no one cares about, being interviewed by a pre-scripted CGI ripoff of all late night talk show hosts combined.

      The material is poorly written, if it is in fact written and not ad-lib. The voice of the CGI 'David Tench' character is extremely annoying, and the waste of pixels won't stop referring to the 'celebrity' as their full name. Who does that?

      If you want to lose your IQ ratio watching sub par television, then this show is definitely for you. If not, switch the channel.moreless
    • With smart animation techniques this new show could fail or rate highly.

      David Tench Tonight is a lacklustre talk show with even lamer jokes. The first episode was a new experience for me when Pat Rafter started off the show talking to the animated host. The second show, was terrible as Nelly Furtado dragged on and on what she would do if there was a bomb on a bus and wouldn't let her move off 50 kph. It was so boring that it forced me to watch the Getaway Special and when that got too much, led me onto the ever surprising Celebrity Survivor. The only way I am ever going to watch this show again is if someone kidnapped me and forced to me to watch it and even then I would try to go to sleep.moreless
