Rove McManus' big return to Australian television has gone from bad to worse.

After Saturday Night Rove debuted to dismal ratings in August, Channel 10 have been caught 'lying to viewers with fake fan reviews', according to TV Tonight. 

The network have been airing a promo packed full of positive Tweets from fans, but most of these appear to be completely taken out of context.

The chosen Tweets, which were posted on August 24 during the airing of the first episode, massively misrepresented viewers' sentiments.

'Amazing... FUNNY !,' one Tweet from user @RVenusaur read in the advert, which played across Australia in a prime-time slot all week. 

In reality, the user had Tweeted: '#SaturdayNightRove Soo I kinda liked it, it's not amazing but it's funny and can we get some musical performances please?'
