& # 39; The requirements for hosting a show meant that I couldn't spend as much time as I wanted to get up & # 39 ;, he added.

& # 39; I enjoyed making a Hard Quiz and I will miss it. I want to thank everyone who has worked on the show, Thinkative TV and the ABC for their support. & # 39;

He concluded by thanking the participants of the show to always play & # 39; hard & # 39 ;.

Many fans of Hard Quiz were upset with the news and frantically asked if the show would continue without Tom as the host.

The fact that Tom's statement claimed that the program & # 39; would cease production & # 39; however, suggests that it is over forever.

& # 39; This is … the only quiz show I watch, Tom. The interaction between you and the participants is unique for TV, & wrote a devastated viewer.

The dream has come to an end: many fans of the series were understandably destroyed by the news and uncertain about what the future would mean for the show

& # 39; I love the concept of this show. If Hard Quiz continues, it won't be the same chemistry without you as a host. & # 39;

Another addition: & # 39; Tom, I have been studying the history of My Little Pony for a year and now you pull the carpet away from me. What good is my special expertise now? & # 39;

Hard Quiz premiered at ABC in October 2016 and soon developed a loyal fan base.
