The Death of Television, More Reboots and a Giveaway! - TV BlackBox S01E13

PodcastsSteve Molk1 Comment

How do we solve a problem like diminishing free-to-air ratings? (How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?) Apart from Kochie's news, Kelsey Grammer's news, and Foxtel's cricket news, the team have a significant discussion about the Q4 numbers and we ponder if our expectations are too high. Just a normal existential moment for TV BLACKBOX.

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:

  • Viewers are outraged that the Cricket ODI's are Foxtel exclusive.

  • SNL's Pete Davidson drops a joke about a veteran and it doesn't fare well, though his target's response is classy.

  • Jay reports David Koch signs with SUNRISE for another two years.

  • REBOOTS: Kelsey Grammar talks FRASIER & Fran Drescher hopes for THE NANNY.

  • Molk delivers a ratings rundown on Seven, Nine and Ten's Q4 PERFORMANCE.

  • What did 10's BEVERLEY McGARVEY say to Mediaweek's James Manning that has our collective interest piqued?

  • Dan asks IS TELEVISION DEAD?
