How Tom Gleeson trolled Australia: ABC denies comedian & # 39; s claim that Hard Quiz has been canceled – as a shock Logies conspiracy theory emerges
Tom Gleeson caused a stir last week when he stepped down from his hosting role on Hard Quiz.
But ABC has now refused the comedian's claims that the show has been canceled – with rumors that Gleeson's decision to & # 39; leave & # 39; is just a publicity stunt for the Logie Awards of TV Week.
& # 39; Tom & # 39; s statement that he fired himself from the hard quiz is new to us, especially as we are broadcasting 10 new episodes later this year & # 39 ;, a network spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.

The representative added: & # 39; It sounds like Tom needs a good old HARD chat with himself. & # 39;
The network stated in addition to the 10 episodes scheduled for next year, they are also looking for participants.
The rumors are about Tom, 44, nominated for the coveted Golden Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian television.
After the Exciting announcement, the TV star added fuel to rumors that his departure from the hard chat is just a joke when he promised he would & # 39; un-ax & # 39; himself if he won gold.

All a big joke? Tom added fuel to rumors that his departure was a publicity stunt when he said he would & # 39; remove himself from Hard Chat & # 39; if he wins the Gouden Logie for which he has been nominated on Sunday
& # 39; I AM IN FOR THE GOLD SHEET! Last year you proved that you can only win if you don't have a show. That's why I kept myself aloof, & he wrote on Twitter Monday.
& # 39; If I win gold, I promise to remove #HardQuiz immediately. Forgive me HARD! Voting starts on June 24. # Gleeson4Gold #tvweeklogies. & # 39;
Tom has also been nominated for Most Popular Presenter and his program Hard Quiz has been nominated for Most Popular Entertainment Program.
Joke? The nominations come despite Tom & # 39; s sudden departure from Hard Quiz, which he said he was working on, so he could only concentrate on his stand-up comedy
The nominations come despite Tom & # 39; s sudden departure from Hard Quiz, which he said he was working on, so that he could fully concentrate on his stand-up comedy.
Tom tweeted on Friday: & # 39; I have decided to step down as the host of Hard Quiz and to stop production of the show.
& # 39; This was not an easy decision to make and I appreciate that there are many fans of the show for which I will always be grateful. & # 39;
He concluded: & # 39; The requirements for hosting a show meant that I couldn't spend as much time as I wanted to get up. I enjoyed making Hard Quiz and I will miss it. & # 39;
Going for gold: in a similar scenario, during last year's nominations, Grant Denyer (photo) was also nominated for a Gouden Logie despite the fact that his ailing Family Feud was taken out of the air due to bad reviews. He continued to win
In a similar scenario, during last year's nominations, Grant Denyer was also nominated for a Gouden Logie despite the fact that his ailing Family Feud was taken out of the air due to bad reviews.
Tom actually stopped having fun in Grant & # 39; s nod last year and said in June about The Project: & # 39; I used to be angry with the Logies because Denyer was voted gold for the popular personality on TV for a game show who was rejected because of low scores on the third highest rating network and I thought this was an idiot & # 39 ;.
Tom made it amusing # Denyer4Gold campaign responded as follows: & # 39; Let's push the Logies to the most absurd extreme ever and give the Gold Logie to a man who doesn't have a TV show. It's beautiful. & # 39;
During his acceptance speech last year, Grant thanked Tom by saying: & # 39; Thanks for the hard chat friend, I appreciate that. & # 39;
Denyer4Gold: Tom created the fun # Denyer4Gold campaign in response and said: & # 39; Let's push the Logies to the most absurd extreme ever and give the Gold Logie to a man who doesn't have a TV show. It is beautiful & # 39;
