TV Week

TV Week

"TV WEEK" is a weekly television magazine in Australia, first published as a Melbourne-only publication in 1957 (as "TV-Radio WEEK"), and bearing a strong affiliation to television station GTV.

The publication is still publishing weekly, each week detailing upcoming storylines for major Australian dramas, American shows, and more.


In 1958, the title was shortened to "TV WEEK" and circulation expanded to Sydney, then the only other TV market in Australia. At the close of that year, Melbourne readers of "TV WEEK" were invited to vote for their favourite TV personalities and programmes. Graham Kennedy and Panda Lisner from GTV's "In Melbourne Tonight" were voted Melbourne's most popular TV personalities. Kennedy then named the awards the Logies, after the inventor of the first working television system, John Logie Baird. "TV WEEK" continued to expand publication as television launched in other capital cities and regional areas across Australia. By 1959, "TV WEEK" had a competitor, "TV Times", published by the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC).

In 1980, "TV WEEK" merged with rival publications "TV Times" and the Australian version of "TV Guide". The revamped publication continued to be known as "TV WEEK", and was now a joint venture between Kerry Packer's Australian Consolidated Press (who had bought out the former TV Times from the ABC) and Southdown Press (later Pacific Publications), with the latter publishing the magazine on behalf of both parties. In 2002, Packer effectively bought "TV WEEK" out of the joint venture. A legal battle over the custody of the magazines Logie Awards followed as both Australian Consolidated Press and Pacific Publications claimed ownership. Pacific wanted to use the Logies to promote their new rival TV listing "What's On Weekly". Packer won the battle and the Logies remain connected to "TV WEEK".
