Things have been a little quiet on the Paul Henry front of late. Since his final episode of the late night Paul Henry Show last year, there has been a serious shortage of Paul. No smug grin. No hysterical laughing at rodents. No description of impoverished countries as shitholes. There was a weak online attempt at finding him an online intern, but the Internet was left with more questions than answers.
@Zagzigger Who is Paul Henry? What is he? Do we care any more? Is he worrying? No, he’s driving around the USA for 6 wks.

That’s right, we have it on good authority that Paul has been galavanting around the States whilst the team back home scrabble together to assemble his cutting-edge multi-platform daily morning show. Whether you like it or not, he will rise again sometime after Easter. Just like Jesus.
Please stop trying to make Paul Henry a thing. — jsrnz (@jsrnz) January 25, 2015
TV3 have quietly realised these new promos for his show, that confirm that Paul Henry is definitely more than a “thing” – he’s an astronaut:
One small step for Paul, one giant leap for New Zealand’s breakfast entertainment. Whether it’s forwards or backwards? We’ll find out soon enough.
