Threats, the axe falls and a Hey Dad! reboot | TV Blackbox S02E05

It's 'game on' with the official start of ratings... and there's so much to get across! The axe has already fallen at 10, meanwhile e-mails have been leaked from at least two networks that really must be seen to be believed and when is a story not a story (Molk and Rob really get into that one).

Actress Sarah Monahan joins our little gang to bring her unique insight into the TV industry and she's so good we might just have to bring her back!

Each week the TV Blackbox team take you behind the scenes, wade through the PR spin and launch into the reality that is the Australian television business.
