Ethics, anger and an act of kindness | TV Blackbox S03E02

Ratings are back and we couldn't be happier. So much fresh smelling new TV and bye bye to all that old stinky stuff.

Finishing up Q1 for the 2019 year means we can start to judge some of the offerings so far and look to how some of those that still have to run might fare.

Who'd be in charge of the AFL Footy Show, eh?

There's also heaps to talk about, including the question "Has Brekky TV lost it's sizzle?".

Special guest Meshel Laurie speaks to us about the night TODAY co-host Georgie Gardner reached out to her in a time of crisis and saved her life.

Plus during a much lighter discussion Sarah reveals why she forced Rob to look at her... ahem... you'll just have to listen to that bit!

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.
