New Year's Eve 2006 special
31 December 2006, a special episode was broadcast featuring Matthew Newton, son of Bert Newton. It was meant to be different from the telecasts that the Nine Networkhad provided in past years in that it was mainly aimed at a younger audience. However, many of these people did not watch and as a result, the audience was mainly comprised of families and senior citizens who were shown simulations of oral sexand other suggestive activity as well as foul language. Also, some suggested that Matthew Newton was affected by alcohol. Talkback radioreceived many calls complaining about the coverage and other media outlets, such as " Today Tonight", " A Current Affair" and "The Daily Telegraph" [ [http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/story/0,23663,21001182-10388,00.html Ten's smutty party an insult | NEWS.com.au Entertainment ] ] attacked the station for broadcasting the show.
