Tonightly with Tom Ballard returns next month


Comedian Tom Ballard returns to ABC this June with a new reporter and a new time slot.

Tonightly with Tom Ballard returns after a two-month hiatus, despite protests from members of parliament who were offended by jokes on the show’s original run.

“After a short, definitely-not-government-mandates hiatus, Tonightly with Tom Ballard is back from Monday June 18 at the new time of 9:30pm on ABC COMEDY and ABC iview,” the national broadcaster released in a statement.

“The show’s first 100 episodes received record-breaking ratings* and overwhelming critical acclaim (“…on occasions the program is witty.” – Gerard Henderson, The Australian).”

“Armed with the power of comedy news-making, the Tonightly team have solved a range of issues (same-sex marriage, Australia Day, Barnaby Joyce, etc, you’re welcome) and now they’re hungry for more. So hungry in fact that they’ve added rising star Nina Oyama (Utopia, The Angus Project) as an official Tonightly reporter alongside Bridie Connell, Greta Lee Jackson and Greg Larsen.”

Tonightly with Tom Ballard airs at 9:30pm Monday to Friday on ABC COMEDY and ABC iview. A weekly podcast of the show is also available from the ABC listen app.
