The proceedings in the studio were also halted, with the show's production staff being immediately fired and the stunned studio audience being told by security to go home. - This sounds dubious, considering most television programs are recorded in advance of their screening date. Can anybody confirm this? I don't believe it to be true. Firstly, it was only TCN-9 that pulled the plug after 30 minutes. GTV-9 ran the program until the last commercial break (about 9.20pm) and then went into "Cheers" instead of the last segment of the program. And regional affiliates (eg. VIC-TV) ran the one-hour (not 90 minutes) program in full as it was still going out on the Nine Network feed. --Andjb 13:39, 17 August 2006 (UTC)


The article implies both that the show went to black and never came back, and that it never resumed after a commercial break. Was the sitation unique in Melbourne, or did it go to black everywhere, or to an advert everywhere? Article text is below. Asa01 03:18, 22 January 2006 (UTC)

The studio operators complied, and the show immediately pulled the plug and went to a black screen saying the network had "technical difficulties" (in Melbourne, the show went to a commercial and never came back), with two reruns of Cheers filling the show's remaining air time.

Cheers or Married with Children?[edit]

On this page it says that it was Married with Children. On the List_of_television_shows_canceled_after_one_episode page it says it was Cheers. Which was it?

I remember it as Cheers.

I seem to recall that back in the day, Married with Children was screened on Network Ten not Nine Network. Asa01 06:07, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

I believe it was cheers as well. I was going to change it, but it looks like someone already has.--Auger Martel 15:15, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Married with Children! I remember it exactly, the show was Married with Children, two episodes back to back, and not Cheers. Unless, likely, different states aired different fill-in programs (MWT here in Vic). MWT aired on Channel 9 at that time. 08:30, 7 January 2007 (UTC)


Personally, I think that it's more interesting that this page about an obscure TV program has a detailed account of the show's cancellation and not one sentance about the show's premise. Master Deusoma 23:22, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Not one sentence? Try reading the article, the first paragraph contains "Australia's Naughtiest Home Videos depicted videos of sexual situations and other sexually explicit content."

That sums up the show well, and the description has been in the article more or less unchanged for nearly two years. 03:40, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

Gentlemen, you seem to forget that the Internet isn't located in your back yard and hence 'sexually explicit' has a wide variaty of meanings to different people. The original complaint is valid, the description of content could be fleshed out with atleast a sentence of examples. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:02, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Actually not all the content was sexual, unless eating maggots is your thing. I'm not sure how to best word it, other gross acts, might do. There was embarrasing or indecent situations, like the girl revealing her knickers on the tyre bridge that are not really in the sexual category and the donkey or seal's member which isn't kinky, just typically not shown on tv. - Shiftchange (talk) 23:11, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Uncut version by Bert Newton =[edit]

Is the torrent for the uncut version available on the net?

Also, since I live in regional queensland did WIN Television QLD air the whole thing uncut or was it cancelled since it receives the Nine Brisbane feed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:56, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Written by Doug Mulray?[edit]

I must say that this article is immeasurably better than the last time I read it (a number of years ago). However, I still see one glaring fault - and not a fault of any of the editors. It is claimed that the host of the show - Doug Mulray - wrote all his lines himself. And this is referenced to an article in a Sydney newspaper. If that is true, then it makes me wonder what I and two other writers were doing sitting in our office at Channel 9 and banging away at two computers and one typewriter (one of us was a bit of a luddite - or maybe a technophobe, not sure which). I know that having first-hand experience of the production makes me ineligible to actually change the article. Still, I'd just like to note the work of Ken Sterling, Rowan McGillicuddy and Party Parslow and their contribution to a notorious event in Aussie TV) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:26, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
