This week's TV WEAK!!
The big TV rumour is that Sale Of Century will be axed next year. There’s speculation that it will be replaced by a game show hosted by Red Symons. This is a travesty. Glenn Ridge is one of Aussie Television’s true folk heroes. How could they dream of sacking the man who on his entrance to the set, every night quietly utters “Hi” to an imaginary figure before greeting viewers and studio audience? While Symons has a wider vocabulary (Ridge has only two adjectives, “great” and “fantastic”), Ridge’s sex appeal and gentility towards contestants is unrivalled.
