& # 39; I think the biggest problems have been the boring legal issues & # 39 ;, said Rove, who organized his eponymous talk show between 1999 and 2009.
He explained that times have changed since he was last in the broadcast and said: & # 39; We used to be able to show sets of other (TV) shows or send a camera to someone's home. & # 39;
But nowadays there are & # 39; hoops to jump through & # 39; and other legal considerations that mean that some & # 39; sharper & # 39; ideas do not come up.
Legal considerations: the comedian, 45, told Mumbrella that making fun and spontaneous television will be harder in 2019 due to & # 39; boring legal issues & # 39;

Although he came across more legal roadblocks than 20 years ago, Rove said he is committed to making a funny, entertaining and engaging show & # 39 ;.
Although Saturday Night Rove was not a review hit last year during Pilot Week, the comedian is convinced that there is still an audience for Saturday night TV.
He markets the show to people like him, that is, parents with children who do not go out at the weekend and want to look at something family-friendly.
Challenges: Despite encountering more legal roadblocks than 20 years ago, Rove is committed to making & # 39; a funny, entertaining and engaging show & # 39; with Saturday Night Rove. Shown during a notorious episode of Rove Live in 2009 with Kevin Rudd and Sacha Baron Cohen
Too hot for TV! The episode of Rove Live with Sacha Baron Cohen, in character like Bruno, had to be censored after the actor made a potentially libelous joke about a big Hollywood star
Rove Live premiered in 1999 and won the most popular popular entertainment program five times at the Logie Awards in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009.
Part of the content of the show would be considered quite risky according to current standards.
Segments were & # 39; Sex Office & # 39; and & # 39; Who would you become gay for? & # 39;
A notorious interview with Sacha Baron Cohen's character, because Bruno even had to be censored after the actor made a potentially disgraceful joke about a Hollywood star.
