Shock Jock was an Australian television comedy series, broadcast on TV1.

The series lasted for two series (2001–2002) and was created by comedian Tim Ferguson. It also starred Tim Ferguson along with Matthew Dyktynski, Michael Veitch, Tom Budge, Rod Mullinar, Sancia Robinson, Fiona Todd, Cassandra Magrath and featured many well-known Australian actors and comedians in guest roles.

It focussed on an Australian talkback radio station, CHAT-AM, in the 1980s. The introduction of FM radio in the early 1980s was leading to the slow demise of the AM band. CHAT-AM discovered shock jock Barry Gold (Matthew Dyktynski) and its fortunes were reversed.
