This is a bit of a shocker, but let's just blame it on the struggling economy.

Fifty years of Logies and they finally learned to play it safe. On television's night of nights there were no prize upsets, and barely any of the unscripted highlights for which the show has become so well known.

Kate Ritchie managed to fend off a surge by ABC personalities to take home the Gold Logie at the 50th TV Week Logie Awards.
