The Australian version of The Today Show has refreshed (again). A couple of weeks ago they announced that Karl Stefanovic wouldn't be returning to the show and announced a new lune up of Georgie Gardner, Deborah Knight and Tom Steinfort. Public reception wasn't great with Sylvia Jefferies and Tim Gilbert being axed despite being popular. It means the show's line up has completely changed since a year ago when Lisa Wilkinson was dropped.

The new show and graphics launched today (or is it tomorrow?!) with the show coming from the US open potentially leaving the studio for a refresh. The studio has been the same layout since the 2012 refresh with a slight spruce up and a new desk a couple of years ago.

Anyway that's enough context, here is the new opener with some disgusting wipes:



Notably the same theme tune.

Some more of the graphics can be seen in this video:



I don't know why they insist on keeping the 9 logo in such an awkward place!

Would be interested to know what you all think!

Presenting from a makeshift set not the best way to relaunch a show but get why with it being their first year at the tennis why they wanted too, even though giving the team an extra couple of weeks to get things right off screen then relaunching on their
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Unfortunately no new set despite them being at the AUS Open for a fortnight. They've installed a new desk with a screen front (10/10 for creativity there) and the background has changed slightly on the video walls. Seems like a wasted opportunity to update what is effectively a 7 year old set when it's been out of use for 2 weeks.




EDIT - Sorry that I have to quote tweets when discussing this stuff. 9 seem to geoblock their whole website so watching TODAY is now very difficult in the UK. If any of our Australian members have any better screenshots then I would appreciate them being posted 👍🏼

With the dropping viewer numbers in Australia I would have thought that they could do with all the viewers they can get!
