I could only understand about half of the words they said, but that was still hilarious. I had to pause when he started arguing with him over who sang Sound of Silence I was laughing so hard.

I'm a big fan of that frog in Star Wars, just like NZ McLovin is.



He's either very tall or there really are a lot of hobbits in New Zealand.

This show is hilarious. A bit contrived towards the end of the episodes, but the first half is consistently funny.

Agreed. The first half is usually great and the second half is too set up, with some funny bits still.

Bad news: New Zealand Today has been cancelled due to the channel it's on having financial issues.
Guy Williams wrote: For almost 10 years I’ve worked on all sorts of weird and crazy kids’ shows and cooking shows and I thought: “I’m definitely not coming back next year!” But I do! And this year, with New Zealand Today, I finally think: “Man this is actually really good!” And I’m cancelled!? I owe a lot to TV3 and this was kind of my chance to pay them back!

By all accounts New Zealand Today has been a huge success: It won its time slot almost every week, except for when it was up against the World Cup opening ceremony. It did really well on demand. Only five clips from the show have been posted online but they already have over 2 million views combined! And each of those clips are 12-minute segments which is the perfect length to support advertising. My “plan” now is to beg for money. Is that a plan? I’m convinced I’ve got a programme that not only has an audience in New Zealand but could be sold overseas. The show is popular on “Reddit Videos”, a subreddit with over 20 million followers mainly in the US.

The David Brent in me wants to storm into TV3 with a whiteboard and pitch a show with “great funding prospects, obvious advertising opportunities, and a large established audience in the key demographic…” and they’re like “Guy, what is it?” And I’m like: “The name of that show… (pulls off red curtain)… Is New Zealand Today!” And they’re like “Woooaaah” and they take me back and we kiss.

I can’t imagine it doesn’t get picked up by someone.
