In the closing credits of the 2nd season finale (27 November 2001), the following were jumbled in with the rest of the credits: Dear Santa, I want world peace. From Rove Dear Santa, I want chocolate. From Corinne Dear Santa, I want a Bruce Samazan doll. From Pete Dear Santa, forget world peace, I want a monkey. From Rove Dear Santa, LOTS of chocolate. From Corinne Dear Santa, your name rhymes with 'fanta'. From Pete Dear Santa, I want them to shut up and get off the air. From Sandra Sully See more »
Now that Rove has moved to a better time slot I have become a regular viewer. Not that I didn't always want to be, it was just on too late.
This show is always entertaining. It's great to see someone as committed and energetic towards his profession as Rove. Every week he attempts to up the entertainment factor (whether it includes slipping rather awkwardly into Lisa Mcune's dress for example).
Rove is a confident performer. It makes the viewer feel at ease. If Rove slips up, he covers it with some quick and witty humour. He's really good at what he does.
Every week there is a string of cool guest stars, which sometimes come back for a second stint on the show. Rove is a natural interviewer. This man is an Andrew Denton in the making.
I love this year's set-up. It's paced but leaves you feeling satisfied. Rove has a new homier set (complete with a couch). He also has better segments from comedians like Peter Helliar (love that PeteSpace!).
All in all this show is one that I make sure I tune into, and I'm not a television addict (except for The Simpsons, I LOVE that show).
Good, all round entertainment.
