Wednesdays, 6:30 AM ET on ABC-AU

30 minutes

A news comedy show, tonight show, and chat show all in one, allowing Charlie to return to his comedy roots while being a general nuisance to newsmakers, politicians and other charlatans. Charlie won't be launching The Weekly alone. Joining him every week will be two of Australia's funniest – Tom Gleeson and Kitty Flanagan.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

The Weekly with Charlie Pickering has just aired its 4th episode of season 3, in spite of Sidereel claiming it is on hiatus.
I like this show. It is obviously Australian, but I keep current with a number of Aussie shows. The writing is great. The regulars Tom Gleeson and Kitty Flanagan are always enjoyable.
Charlie usually has a guest "celebrity" and his interviews are very different from the usual fluff we are used to on American talk shows. For one thing, Charlie actually researches his guests and draws out unknown facts about them. Political satire and send ups of Aussie TV. After watching this show you wonder why America doesn't do this.
