Greeks on the Roof was an Australian television talk show that ran for 11 episodes on the Seven Network in 2003. It was hosted by Greek-Australian character Effie (played by actress Mary Coustas) and her "family".

Based on the format of the British The Kumars at No. 42, each show had interviews with a number of Australian actors and actresses. Guests were involved in Effie's jokes and antics whilst being asked about their career and personal life.

Making a guest appearance on the show was Sam Newman, who is a personality on rival network Channel Nine. Also Molly Meldrum, before signing the contract with Seven. Dr. Harry Cooper was also a guest on the show and in promos was told he would reveal his full self by taking off his hat, but in the show he never did. American talk show host Jerry Springer also made a notable guest appearance.

Kris Noble was the executive producer of the show. The cast included Angus Sampson as Effie's cousin Dimi.[1]
