Osher Gunsberg brushes aside Bachelor ratings drama and says the revamped series is the “best” season in the history of the dating franchise – as he launches a satirical news show

From Australian Idol to The Masked Singer and The Bachelor, Osher Günsberg has hosted some of Australia’s most successful reality shows.

But now the industry veteran is turning his attention to a passion project with the launch of his own satirical news show, Night Time News Network National Nightly New (NTNNNN).

“I’m crazy about politics, I’m crazy about news,” he told Chron Australia on Friday.

Osher Gunsberg is launching his own satirical news show called Night Time News Network National Nightly New, which will have live shows in Melbourne and Sydney

“I’ve always wanted to host a satirical news show, about halfway between The Tonight Show and a news commentary program, and I realized pretty quickly that no television network was going to knock on my doorstep and say, ‘Hey, we’ve got this show planned , can you moderate it?”

“So I decided I just have to make my own!” he added.

Osher explained the concept: “It’s the news of the day like you’ve never seen it before.”

The show, which is currently running in live format with scheduled performances in Melbourne and Sydney, sees Osher as the news anchor alongside real-life news reporters and “some of Australia’s funniest and most brilliant actors” responding to the day’s news.

“We basically take the news we talk about and execute it, creating the most extraordinary reflections and explorations of what’s going on in our country and our world.”

Despite the show’s seemingly serious nature, Osher insists that it’s “very goofy and a lot of fun” and that even people who can’t keep up with the news can enjoy it.

Night Time News Network – National Nightly News with Osher Günsberg and the NTNNNNN News Team will debut weekly at the Factory Theater in Marrickville in Sydney from Friday 27 January.

The show is now set on the Gold Coast, and the women are now competing for three different suitors instead of just one.

“We’ve all worked so hard to make it what it is and I’d like to think it’s one of the best, if not the best, we’ve ever made, aside from Brooke Blurton’s.” he gushed.

“It’s incredible,” he added, stressing that he was proud of how the season had gone and not letting negative ratings rumors bother him.

“They’re all doing a great job and I’m really proud of the numbers we have, but the TV market is changing so much and so fast. The way people watch has changed tremendously since we started work on The Bachelor,” he said.

“I just have to break away from it to do my job because I was there. I’ve had a terrible week or a great week in the past because of an odds number that I ultimately can’t control.

The Bachelors premiered earlier this month to 439,000 viewers across Metro, Regional and streaming.
