10 renews ‘Hughesy, We Have A Problem’ for 2021
Channel 10 has revealed its content slate for next year, and confirmed that Hit Network Drive co-host Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes will be back on our screens with Hughesy, We Have A Problem.
Other radio personalities to retain gigs on 10 include Amanda Keller, Ed Kavalee and Sam Pang.
In addition to Hughesy, We Have A Problem, Hughesy will also likely appear again as a judge on The Masked Singer Australia, alongside KIIS’ Sydney Breakfast co-host Jackie O.
10 was coy about which judges are returning, simply saying in the press release: “Host Osher Günsberg and our panel of super sleuths will all be back on deck in 2021 as the guessing games begin anew and the chant rings out once more to ‘Take it off!’”
10 would not answer questions directly about which judges would definitely be returning.
Hughesy’s Hit Network Drive co-host Kavalee, however, is confirmed to return as a regular panellist on Have You Been Paying Attention? alongside Nova’s Breakfast co-host in Melbourne, Sam Pang.
Publicity from 10 said the network was “boasting plenty of LOLs” with the programs.
“Dave Hughes will be tackling more of life’s biggest, smallest and most awkward issues with a brand spanking new season of Hughesy, We Have. A Problem,” 10 explained.
Host of Have You Been Paying Attention? Tom Gleisner noted what a big year it had been for the show.
“2020 was an amazing season of HYBPA?, with our contestants competing via video link from home. Or, in the case of Marty Sheargold – home detention.
“Hopefully 2021 will see us all back in the studio for another exciting year of socially-distanced quiz show hilarity.”
Monday night’s episode, which featured Sheargold, Pang and Kavalee ripping into Nova, had a metro audience of 628,000. Its total audience, including regional viewers, was 847,000.
WSFM’s Sydney Breakfast co-host Keller will also be back for The Living Room.
“We’ve had a ripper of a year on The Living Room, and thanks to our new format, we’ve met some extraordinary Australians who’ve inspired us and changed us all in different ways. We’ve had some laughs, a few tears and we can’t wait to do it all again in 2021,” Keller said.
