Should we list the Warm-ups? 02:23, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Never mind, someone did. 02:26, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Less like an advertisement, I hope[edit]

I've gone and edited the text a bit to make it less like an advertisement. --Popefelix 03:08, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm satisfied with that --Closedmouth 03:36, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks! :) --Popefelix 03:40, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Added differences in judgement[edit]

Someone is very keen that the differences between the judgement in the American version and the Australian version be noted. I have obliged them by working that into the summary. --Popefelix 03:40, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Please do not move[edit]

The Australian version is named 'Tv show' for a reason. The American version adapted from the Australian version. What makes some people think that it should be different? Keep it at 'show' and not at series. Thanks!--Shaggy9872004 00:50, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

What makes people think it should be different is Wikipedia's naming conventions, which state that television shows should use (TV series). I actually don't have a clue what an international adaption has to do with anything. IMO, it should be moved back. —Whomp (myedits) 01:47, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
Furthermore, what do you mean by "the Australian version is named 'Tv show' for a reason"? —David Levy 01:53, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
I mean that before the disambiguation page was made, it was called Thank God You're Here (Australian TV show). Plus, it should use show because The Wedge (Australian TV show) uses show as well.--Shaggy9872004 05:37, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
1. You selected the nonstandard title Thank God You're Here (Australian TV show) when you moved the Thank God You're Here article to create an unnecessary (and convention-defying) disambiguation page.
2. Thank you for bringing The Wedge (Australian TV show) to my attention. I'll move that article and The Wedge (Canadian TV show) to the correct titles. —David Levy 05:52, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
It's not hard to be civil so do it.--Shaggy9872004 07:11, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Who's being uncivil? —David Levy 13:51, 17 April 2007 (UTC)


when i think of this tv show, i dont want it to take me to the australian page, i don't think of the aussy version when i go here, so why does it automaticly go there hm? change it!--Cody6 02:22, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

The Australian show is the original version on which all others are based (and the article contains some information on this subject). If we were to place a disambiguation page at Thank God You're Here, you still would have to follow a link to get from there to here (so it would serve no purpose other than to add an extra step for readers seeking the article about the Australian version). That's why disambiguation pages usually should be used only when three or more appropriate destination articles exist. —David Levy 03:00, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
ANd i don't want ot have t0o go through another page ot get to this one, so either way were incoveinced, why make americans go through one page and aussies get to only go to the page right away? If theres a disamb then its equal.--Cody6 21:06, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
lol! The US show was cancelled after 7 episodes, while the original has been commissioned for a third season. Of course being American makes it more important! MrAngy 05:08, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

also, do you think we shoudl go a little more indepth with the episodes, or mention certain things, mostly with what happend at the end of episode 4--Cody6 02:22, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

No, that's the last thing that should happen. Articles should only stick to the basic facts, not get bogged down in trivia that makes that make them painful to read. Spejic 18:17, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
Whatever. --Cody6 21:06, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Cody6, it is really quite funny and dare I say it "stereotypical" for you to think that America is the centre of the world. Thank God You're Here was created by Australia, and was through a full season and half way through re-runs of that season before ANY other country even wanted to take it on board. The Australian show is the original (and dare I say it, the best). It is really no different to other articles such as the TV Guide which references the AMERICAN version first, and only has a small "other countries have a similar magazine" section, at least the American version still has it's own page. Just let it go, it makes more sense to go through the original anyway, it lets people see the origins of the show. Insomnus September 2007 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:24, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Not to mention if you watch the same scripts handled by both countries, the American one was unfunny and forced. At least the Aussie one was GENUINELY funny. Sam Timmins (talk) 17:46, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

This show originated in Australia. ---TLAKABM 13:16, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Proof that it got axed?[edit]

I see this article has changed to past tense following a kind of dodgy link to a website outlining US series cancellations. I would like to see a major US newspaper or media outlet article or an official NBC press release to confirm it actually got axed. Thanks. I have already done a Google search as well as a Google News search and found nothing reliable. --Lakeyboy 08:16, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

I've pasted in a reference from the Aussie page about the cancellation. ~~ ~~ THE DARK LORD TROMBONATOR (((¶))) 08:32, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
I saw a commercial during another NBC show that said (Not word for word) to catch episodes of Thank God You're Here on NBC just two days ago on August 6th, 2007. Doesn't an official cancellation mean that the show will no longer be re-aired on network prime time?
