ROVE quits TV

by Nathan Taylor

Last night Rove McManus made the shock announcement to the world that his TV show ROVE was ending after ten years... but hang on a sec...The Extra Source predicted this weeks ago! See the link here

While I must admit it is somewhat sad that he is leaving, it is definitely due as his star power has plummeted over the past couple of years and now he can't even crack the 1 million mark in the ratings.

I used to enjoy ROVE from 2000 - 2006, but when he decided to add too many unfunny sidekicks and his jokes got a lot cruder I decided to go the other way and become a real 'Rove Hater'.

Rove provided Australian television with alot of funny moments like What The...? and Flick your Switch but the new direction the show was heading in didn't really excite anyone.

An interesting fact I'd like to mention is:

In 1999 Hey Hey ended and ROVE begun.
In 2009 ROVE ended and Hey Hey begun again.

Expect Rove's next role to be either a stay at home dad (once his wife gets pregnant that is) or co-hosting Sydney's Nova breakfast in 2010 with his mate Peter Helliar and Merrick Watts.
