The Footy Show is an Australian Logie Award-winning sports variety television programme covering professional rugby league in Australia. It is shown on the Nine Network and is currently presented by former rugby league footballers Paul Vautin and Darryl Brohman and Australian former test cricketer Michael Slater. Having aired on Thursday nights since 1994, the programme is largely entertainment-based, with some football-related content included, such as previews of the weekend's fixtures and interviews with players.
The show was originally written to fill the void in the Australian Jackass market, as MTV Australia had failed to follow the lead of MTV Europe with Dirty Sanchez by creating a localised version of the oddly successful show.

Several regular features aside from MLS highlights were present in every show. One of these features was a "translation" of American commentary, called "How to speak U.S. Commentator". This provides a definition of slang used by commentators which differs from that used in Britain. Viewers were also invited to choose an MLS team to support and e-mail their choice t
