Today Tonight': axed. Plus: Sydney promo

The Channel Seven current affairs program 'Today Tonight' has been axed.

According to this articleChannel Seven has dumped 'Today Tonight' in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, replacing the tabloid current affairs show with a one-hour news service.

But the program will still run in Adelaide and Perth, where it still wins the 6.30pm time slot against arch-rival Nine, with their show 'A Current Affair'.

Seven will launch its extended news tonight. All 'Today Tonight' staff on the east coast have been redeployed to make "news investigations and features" for the bulletin.

Nine's extended bulletin has lifted its ratings in the 6pm to 7pm slot, although Seven's long-running soapie' Home and Away' now beats 'A Current Affair' at 7pm.

This is probably the ONLY time I can ever run this... the promo for 'Today Tonight' last year, starring... me, my friends, and a gorgeous shot of my daughter. We still chuckle at this today... was SO much fun to be a part of showcasing Sydney families!
