Hectic on 3 is a South African daily variety show created as a spinoff from Hectic Nine-9 which is aimed at tweens and offers young viewers aged 8-12 years old a half hour of live television filled with a variety of different content.

Hectic on 3 is exactly the same as Fun-atix!! Totally directionless and appallingly executed. So directionless that the presenters were asking viewers what they want to see on the show within three minutes of it starting!
