ChangesEdit

On 24 October 2014, TV Week announced that it would be restoring the Most Outstanding Comedy Program category to the 2015 Logie Awards.[7] The industry-voted category had been absent from Logie ceremonies since 2009 and TV Week said the decision to bring it back came after consulting with the industry, as well as listening to feedback from readers, viewers and voters.[7] TV Week editor Emma Nolan stated, "The standard of Australian comedies has been outstanding in 2014 – and we felt that shows in that genre deserved to be judged up against each other in their own category.[7] In recent years, comedy nominees had competed with other genre shows in the Most Outstanding Light Entertainment Program category.[7]
