Pilot Week Saturday Night

Ten’s Pilot Week came to a close last night with Rove doing what he does best on Saturday Night.

Rove McManus is on a mission to bring back Saturday night entertainment.

Join his quest to reunite Australia’s greatest acts, bands, and television faces in a generation-bending live television show where young performers will bring back the best of the past, and old-school entertainers will be challenged with reinvention.

Expect sketches, guests, music and nothing but feel-good moments as Rove finds the comedy and laughs by breaking down the conventions of entertainment and variety television.

The pilot for me was great it had a nice balance of gags Delta Goodrem pretending to work at a hardware store and being directed by Rove in an earpiece was fun Mel Buttle looking for tattoos was fun.  Merrick Watts live-crashed a wedding to be the MC they didn’t invite. Miranda Tapsells interview was fun and engaging.

There was nothing to fault here Rove was in his element. Judith Lucy did very well as voice over artist. Saturday night proved that there is still a space for Live TV and it would fill it brilliantly
