THE FOOTY SHOW
Channel 9, Thursday, 8.30pm ★★★★ A sound theory about TV production is that the people who are good on camera are the ones who make it look easy. It’s one of the reasons The Footy Show has endured for 20 years — a milestone not to be sneezed at when success in TV is often measured in 13-week increments. Another theory about TV is that it’s useful on occasion to watch something truly awful because it reminds you how hard it is to make something good. You’ll appreciate the AFL Footy Show like never before if you care to stay up tonight and catch a glimpse of the NRL version.
