Aussie Shows Including 'Talking Footy,' 'The Footy Show' Face Upheaval

Australia's "Talking Footy," "The Footy Show," "Footy Classified" and "On the Couch" are in a "state of upheaval amid the biggest shake-up in TV footy shows in the past decade," according to Colin Vickery of the HERALD SUN. "Talking Footy" panelists Luke Darcy, Tim Watson, Wayne Carey and Sam McClure are reportedly worried that Channel 7’s Monday night footy panel show will not "be back" in '18. The concerns come after Eddie McGuire’s JAM TV, the maker of "Talking Footy," took over production of "The Footy Show" on Channel 9. Seven’s management "is said to be unhappy with the arrangement," believing there is a "conflict of interest." Insiders at Seven insist that "Talking Footy" will be back "but say that a number of rival production companies are in the mix to take it over." It "could also be made in-house." A new member of "Footy Classified" was "expected to be announced before Christmas" but that has been delayed. Rumors "are swirling" that Chris Judd will replace Garry Lyon alongside Matthew Lloyd, Caroline Wilson and Craig Hutchison. Others have suggested that Wayne Carey "could be lured" from "Talking Footy." Journalist Damian Barrett "is also on the short-list" (HERALD SUN, 1/2).
