Seven Sharpco-presenter and comedian Jesse Mulligan will also host the second season of local TV ONE comedy,Best Bits.

No stranger to comedy, Jesse has spent a large part of his professional life as a stand-up comedian, writer and presenter, and is excited to take a look at the best and worst of New Zealand television on a weekly basis.

"As I've come to learn, watching and critiquing television is almost a national sport for New Zealanders. I'm very much looking forward to hosting Best Bits where, for half an hour a week, I can help dish it out as well as taking it."
Scouring through the tapes with Jesse each week will be panellists Vaughan Smith (former The Edge Drive show presenter) and Billy T Award winner Rhys Mathewson (7 Days) to take the mickey out of our personalities, our latest pre-occupations and pop culture in general.

Also dropping by will be special guests Matt Heath (Radio Hauraki Breakfast show presenter, Back Of The Y), Guy Montgomery (U Live), up-and-coming comedienne Heidi O'Loughlin and Billy T Award winner Nick Gibb.

This year,Best Bitscontinues to find the funny, strange and weird clips from the week's TV and internet, for the amusement and ridicule of our panel, who will discuss the good, the bad and the strange.

Best Bitsbegins Thursday 27th March, 9.35pm on TV ONE.
