In the closing credits of the 2nd season finale (27 November 2001), the following were jumbled in with the rest of the credits: Dear Santa, I want world peace. From Rove Dear Santa, I want chocolate. From Corinne Dear Santa, I want a Bruce Samazan doll. From Pete Dear Santa, forget world peace, I want a monkey. From Rove Dear Santa, LOTS of chocolate. From Corinne Dear Santa, your name rhymes with 'fanta'. From Pete Dear Santa, I want them to shut up and get off the air. From Sandra Sully See more »
I'm going to have to disagree with the popular opinion of everyone that has posted here that Rove Live is a great show. In fact Rove Live is nothing short of joke. Rove manages to rip off the material of other late night hosts, most notably, that of David Letterman. For those of you who think he's is completely original, heres something for you to think about. His 'lists' which he does each week, as well as being not funny, is a complete rip off of David Letterman's top 10. In a recent interview he exclaimed "In my pants!" while looking at the camera, this was repeatedly done by Dave as he wanted it to be his catch phrase. Dave regularly calls the people voted of the show 'Suvivor', the 'lastest Survivor loser' when they appear on his show. And wouldn't you know, thats what Rove calls the Big Brother evictees too! Unbelievable.
His jokes are lame, he manages to screw up every interview he does, his co-hosts Peter Helliar and Corrine Grant are totally unfunny. Their jokes are over-exaggerated, they deliver their punchline and wait for a reaction. The most they get is a few chuckles.
In conclusion, this show is beyond lame. The only reason this show rates well is because there is nothing on tv at the time. Although, it's success is not a surprise to me, as the Australian public seems to eat up whatever Australian tv channels give them(eg. Big Brother and Popstars) no matter how bad it is.
