TV Burp was an Australian television comedy program which premiered on the Seven Network on 23 July 2009 hosted by Ed Kavalee.

The show presents a satirical look at the previous week's television, including extracts from TV shows with added sketches, observational voice-overs, and guest appearances.

The show was based on the original British award-winning TV series Harry Hill's TV Burp.[1] The first season finished on Thursday 10 September 2009, with Seven hoping to bring it back some time in the near future, though the second series did not air in 2010.[2]

Format[edit]

Generally, the TV shows which are mocked are either reality, drama or game shows, such as Home and Away and MasterChef Australia.
