The program is notable for not having an anchor or moderator, as the four commentators control the debate themselves and take turns throwing to commercial breaks throughout the program.[3]

The program airs sporadically as a fill-in program on Sky News, and doesn't have a permanent weekly timeslot. Peter Beattie filled in for Keneally on an episode which aired on 2 April 2015.[4]

Despite no official confirmation of the program's cancellation, it has not aired after 2015.
