Jono and Ben are leaving their Friday night timeslot.
Hosts Jono Pryor and Ben Boyce announced the news via social media on Thursday morning:
"We wanted to let you guys know first! Next year we are moving to a brand new night – Thursday," the duo told Twitter followers.
The comedians will now air on Thursday nights at 7.30pm on TV3, however it is unknown if the show will continue airing for the full hour.

The relocation of Jono and Ben follows a string of programming changes at MediaWorks.
Last Friday, the network farewelled veteran broadcaster Paul Henry and his early morning broadcast. Prime time current affairs show Story also signed off for the final time.
Henry, who is now 'semi-retired', is set to be replaced by Duncan Garner's The AM Show from 2017.
3 days before Christmas for a show that airs in 2017... perfect timing for a big announcement! Nailed it. https://t.co/03QEIFeyfv— Guy Williams (@guywilliamsguy) December 21, 2016
A localised version of the award-winning Aussie show The Project is also scheduled to replace Story at 7pm.
Jono and Ben at 10 premiered in 2012, airing on Friday nights. The show moved into the 7.30pm timeslot last year.
