David Tench Tonight was promoted on Australian TV for many weeks before it finally hit the small screen. It began with a number of tantalizing and Politically Incorrect witticisms, shown in a print form, and attributed to this person. Then we were treated to views of his desk. Still a few weeks before going to air, we finally discover that he is not a real person at all but a badly proportioned puppet thing. Well after all that lengthy build up it turned out to be a major let down. Only two of Tench's comments in the pilot episode brought a faint smile to my lips and, before the episode had finished, I couldn't even remember what one of them was. This is an extremely unfunny show. I'm not sure what age group it was intended to attract, but I think it will fail to impress anybody. I'm just amazed that it has lasted as long as it has without someone pulling the plug.
