The nominations for the June 30 awards were announced on Sunday at The Star on the Gold Coast, which is the ceremony for the second time.
Gleeson is joined by the Ten Network's Amanda Keller, ABC gardening guru Costa Georgiadis, Neighbours favourite Eve Morey, Nine Network's Rodger Corser, Sam Mac from Sunrise and Waleed Aly from The Project.
In a twist, Gleeson announced last week he was stepping down from hosting duties his show Hard Quiz, a fact not missed during the announcement.
"Everyone knows to win the Gold you have to not have a show," Gleeson called out from the crowd.
"If I win the Gold Logie, I will put it on the tow bar of my Monaro and park a caravan on top of it."
There are four first-time nominations for the Gold Logie this year - Gleeson, Mac, Morey and Georgiadis.
Veteran journalist Tracey Grimshaw missed out on a nomination this year although A Current Affair was nominated in the most popular panel or current affairs category.
Gleeson was unapologetic about last year's campaign and joked this year he would fight even dirtier.
"Tracey Grimshaw didn't deserve to win, that's why she lost last year and that's why she's not here this year - because I buried her campaign and I'm going to do it again. I fight dirty."
Fellow ABC stable nominee Georgiadis said he would call on his highest composting powers in the battle for Gold.
The bearded garden guru insisted his fellow nominees would fall victim to the "magnetism of his follicles".
Longtime Neighbours favourite Morey, who left the long-running soap after her character died of ovarian cancer, said she was still in shock at the nomination.
Sunrise's Mac said it was a compliment to the entire brekky team while Keller and Corser - a third-time nominee - were both thrilled to be given the nod.
"It is a validation that people are liking it, they watch it and they connect with it," Keller said.
This year, TV Week unveiled a new category for the most popular television commercial .
An early front runner to snare the gong is Tourism Australia's hugely popular Dundee: Australia's Tourism Ad in Disguise.
The ad features some of Australia's Hollywood hottest stars including the Hemsworth brother, Margot Robbie and Ruby Rose.
