Who were the hottest stars on Aussie TV this year? And who were the duds? Dar­ren Devlyn and Colin Vick­ery re­port

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Cover Story -

IT'S a per­ilous task – des­tined to arouse the pas­sions and pos­si­bly the ire of tele­vi­sion view­ers. Switched On, how­ever, is hav­ing a crack at list­ing the year's most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple on Aus­tralian TV. There are peo­ple who make the rank­ings purely be­cause they tapped into the mass mar­ket and achieved great rat­ings suc­cess. Oth­ers are in the top 20 be­cause they il­lus­trated a sense of dar­ing and in­tel­li­gence, played a part in cre­at­ing a new trend, or pro­duced an im­pres­sive arc of ca­reer progress. And we've not ig­nored those who should be feel­ing more than a lit­tle red-faced about their per­for­mances. MasterChef, hope­fully in a fashion doc­u­men­tary se­ries and maybe a travel pro­gram with Ge­orge Calom­baris and Gary Me­hi­gan. Ac­tion-thriller Ice and war drama Out Of The Night.
