PodcastsSteve MolkComment

Ratings, ratings, ratings. It rules everything! This week as we wade through the news even it can't escape the influence of ratings figures (and even some politics). We've got views on the Melbourne Cup, Karl Stefanovic & Pauline Hanson... buckle up.

Each week a washed-up TV Producer (Rob McKnight), a TV writer and executive (Dan Bennett), an EMMY award winner (Jay Cagatay) & TV enthusiast and commentator (Steve Molk) take you behind the scenes, wade through the pr spin and launch into the reality that is the Australian television business.

On this episode:

  • Nine not impressed with KARL STEFANOVIC's attempt to rebrand.

  • Pauline Hanson & chair interviewed on STUDIO 10.

  • SNL addresses the Dan Crenshaw controversy with aplomb.

  • The downturn in Australian drama.

  • 10 BOSS logo forced to change after embarrassing error.

  • No BRUCE McAVANEY on 10's Melbourne Cup.

  • Ratings for HOW TO STAY MARRIED and ORANGE THE NEW BROWN.

  • Will 10 finish FOURTH this ratings year? Molk crunches the numbers.

  • Dan, Molk & Rob dissect the final FOUR CORNERS for the year, all about the Michelle Guthrie/Justin Milne debacle.
