Voice Troubles, New Shows & Worst Celebrity Guests - TV BlackBox S01E05

PodcastsSteve MolkComment

The numbers are in - TV Blackbox episode five is by far the most recent episode available. At the all-new time of right now we cover off the latest big-name scalp of #MeToo, talk about a raft of new show announcements and cast our eye across Ten's new programming strategy of just saying "yes".

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:

  • CBS announce Chairman Les Moonves is out effective immediately.

  • Grant & Chezzi Denyer sack their manager (now they're back on top).

  • Jay asks if CBS really did decide Ten's newsreaders need additional voice training.

  • We're about to get a new OTT streamer - Ten All Access.

  • Sam Newman and Harvey Silver face off over a car space.

  • Rob & Jay talk about News Corp's EMMYS Red Carpet plans.

  • Seven boldly lines up a new sketch comedy program ORANGE IS THE NEW BROWN.

  • PARTY OF FIVE gets renewed for some reason.

  • New shows announced:

    • TOMORROW TONIGHT - Charlie Pickering & Annabel Crabb (ABC).

    • SUNDAY NIGHT TAKEAWAY - Julia Morris & Dr Chris Brown (Ten).

    • DANCING WITH THE STARS - Grant Denyer & Amanda Keller (Ten).

  • The final series of HOUSE OF CARDS sans Kevin Spacey.

  • We take a much closer look at Ten's new programs with Dan and wonder aloud if they are on the right track.

  • It's a special mailbag segment as Jay asks Rob to reveal who were the WORST guests he had in his time on STUDIO 10!
