** Also, a "What Have We Learned From History?" segment which involved the Chasers entering a Polish nightclub dressed as [[{{Lederhosen}} stereotypical Germans]], then dressed as [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Wehrmacht/Waffen-SS troopers]], and then Andrew Hansen entered while dressed as '''Hitler himself'''. Complete with swastika armband. He got in. [[note]]The DVDCommentary notes that he was asked to remove the armband, but it got cut from the actual footage.[[/note]]

The show was more relaxed than ''CNNNN'', extensively used parody and satire, and they didn't pull any punches either. The Creator/SevenNetwork and the NineNetwork, both the 'big' commercial stations in Australia, were frequently poked fun at, particularly with regards to their dubious current affairs reporting. They also mock the ABC, which doesn't seem to mind them poking fun at or criticising material produced or transmitted by them. (This is probably because the ABC is entirely government-funded, so there are no sponsors to offend.)

In 2011, the Chaser team returned with their new show ''The Hamster Wheel'', a (relatively) low-key version of The War with more of a focus on discussion of politics and modern media rather than attention-grabbing stunts like APEC. Following the conclusion of ''The Hamster Wheel'''s first (but not only) season, members of the Chaser have gotten involved in other projects across the ABC - Chas Licciardello is currently an anchor of ''Planet America'', an ABC News 24 program discussing American politics, and most of its members sometimes sit on the panel of ''The Drum'', ABC News 24's news analysis and debate program. In 2013, Craig and Julian went on to co-host ''The Checkout'', a consumer affairs show which went on to become an unexpected hit, netting 1.2 million viewers an episode by the end of its run on the ABC (often beating out [[NetworkTen rival network Ten]] for the timeslot), with Chas on board as Producer and Script Editor.

They planned to return to television in April 2011 to cover [[TheHouseOfWindsor the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William]] - In their own words, it was to be "uninformed and unconstitutional" - but the BBC and the royal family [[SeriousBusiness put a stop to that]] a week before the wedding by amending the licencing terms of the wedding broadcast to prevent usage of the footage in comedy. [[InternetBackdraft No-one was amused.]]

* ButtMonkey: Current affairs shows ''Today Tonight'' and ''A Current Affair'' provided a seemingly ceaseless source of {{narm}}ful and [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer incorrect]] material to be satirised; when they dabbled in international stuff, FoxNews was given the same treatment for the same reasons.

** It was rerun on payTV network TheComedyChannel and male aimed digital channel 7mate, although both channels are known for rerunning shows that were previously aired on the ABC, but the first time for a topical, satirical Australian comedy show to be rerun several years after their initial airing.
This list shows the last 10 events of 34. Show all.
