The books are called Disgusting McGrossface, which came about after he tried to explain his irritation with litterbugs to Ruby during a trip to the park, and Rocky Lobstar - an idea he initially pitched as a cartoon series to Nickelodeon in the US.
While TV is off the cards for the moment after such a humiliating blow, the three-time Gold Logie winner said he will be back some day.
“TV has been as much a part of my life as drawing,” he said. “So I’m sure I’ll find myself back there again, too.”
Following the axing, a Network 10 spokesperson told TV Tonight in early September, "Unfortunately Saturday Night Rove hasn’t resonated with viewers the way we had hoped, so Rove and 10 have made the decision to remove it from the schedule. Rove is a sensational entertainer and a close friend of 10, and we thank him for all his hard work, and all the laughs, on Saturday Night Rove."
Speaking to the publication, Rove said: "It was clear looking at the numbers that the audience we hoped would find a freewheeling live show on a Saturday night just weren’t there. We spoke with 10 today and we both called it.
"The opportunity to play live in front of Australia again was fun, no matter how brief, and I would like to thank my amazing co-stars, the behind the scenes team and everyone at 10 who got behind Saturday Night Rove."
