Celebrity Tantrums, Shock Resignations and Terrible Ratings - TV BlackBox S01E06

BREAKING: Rob's case settled. Honestly, it was all we could talk about for the first five minutes, so use that skip button liberally if, unlike the rest of us, you are desperately interested in the finer details he is allowed to share. After that, there's the Emmys, more CBS drama for Team Moonves, Bert & Ernie AND even more ratings conversation/argument/chat.

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:

  • Rob announces he's done a deal with TEN.

  • Julie Chen Moonves resigns from CBS's THE TALK.

  • US 60 MINUTES EP booted after text-bullying scandal.

  • Jay talks about pay parity when it comes to QI - 40% difference!

  • Solid Sesame Street chat re: Bert & Ernie's relationship status.

  • Molk shares the ratings woes of Seven, Nine AND Ten.

  • THE EMMYS: The hits, the misses and that proposal.
