Network Ten (ended 2009)
Considered Australia's answer to the likes of Leno, Letterman, and O'Brien, Rove McManus presents a live, weekly, Logie-winning variety/talk program that is broadcast nationwide to Australia and New Zealand.
Regular segments on Rove Live include Petespace, Hamish and Andy and RyDeas. The show also makes creative use of its database of willing Live List members who volunteer to have their lives interrupted on air.
And let's not forget a guest list comprising the biggest names Rove can lay his hands on, each and every week. Musically, Rove Live consistently presents some of the most cutting edge Australian and international acts.
Co-host Peter Helliar continues to provide the laughs, whether by reviewing DVDs, showing off his PeteSpace or just interrupting Rove to hit on a guest.
2007 saw the start of the Hamish and Andy segment, RyDeas, PeteSpace and the continuation of Carrie Bickmore's News Week.moreless
