Sunrise and Today go Home & Away

sunrise palm beachThe imitation game between rival breakfast TV shows Sunrise and Today is really getting out of hand, as they battle for even the slightest edge in the ratings war.

This week Seven’s Sunrise is on an Australian road trip around Australia, and next week Nine’s Today is going on a road trip around Australia.

But this morning both shows have managed to feature live broadcasts from exactly the same location – Palm Beach on Sydney’s northern beaches. Seriously.

On it’s trip Sunrise decided to visit the iconic location of Australia’s favourite soapy Home & Away as it returns to screens, replete with dodgy acting from Kochie and Sam:

Which must have made it pretty awkward for the Nine crew when they turned up to film the hot story of the day, a man called Monty who’s made a bike he can pulled around by his dogs.

Even more awkwardly for Nine is Seven had already done its interview with Monty a little earlier on.

Maybe they could just go the whole hog and share presenters and crew in the future?
