The series premiered on 6 February 2016 on Sky News Live at 8:30am AEDT, replacing Saturday Agenda and continuing weekly.[2] The program was broadcast live.[3] The hosts were given editorial control over the program, and neither was paid by Sky News for presenting the format.[4][5]

The program moved to Friday afternoons for its second season, in the timeslot To The Point held on other weekdays at the time. The program ended in its fifth season after 105 episodes, shortly after Pyne announced his retirement from politics at the 2019 Australian federal election.

Reception

The program has been lampooned for the "awkward" presenting style of the presenters.[8]
