The Shovel

Australia's second favourite source of satire, after Today Tonight.

Axing Of Today Tonight “A Massive Blow For Serious Journalism” Says Diet Pill Guru

Today TonightJenny Holsworth – whose company sells FatChance, a miracle pill that helps you shed three quarters of your body weight in just 8 weeks – says Channel 7’s apparent decision to scrap Today Tonight has sent shockwaves through the fad diet community.

“I think they’ll come to realise that this was the wrong call,” Ms Holsworth said this morning. “It’s going to force a lot of companies like mine to actually pay for legitimate advertising”.

Political observer Ron Halls says the timing of the announcement – on the same day Prime Minister Julia Gillard called the Federal election – adds salt to the wound. “We’re going to miss TT’s in-depth analysis of the big political issues as we head towards September. It’s a big loss”.

But not everyone will be sad to see the current affairs program go. Ringwood man Neighbour From Hell welcomed the decision, raising his middle finger, while Australia’s Greediest Landlord said he’s looking forward to being even more greedy. In Prospect, Dodgy Tradie ran away before we could record his comment.

Meanwhile, A Muslim Man With A Beard suspiciously answered our reporter’s questions in a foreign language.

    In news just in, Channel 7 has responded to the outcry exposed by The Shovel and has decided to keep TT. Phew!
