10 says variety is dead, 9 makes a big mistake, and 7 prepares for war! | TV Blackbox S03E20

WE'RE ALL BACK! Brooky survived Europe, Dan survived his nieces and nephews, and Sarah survived the hurricane. As for Rob and Molk, well... let's just say it's great they're still here.

We move deftly from a TV Blackbox exclusive on what's happening with MKR to news Seven are going ahead with their dog grooming show (good grief) and swing past 10 announcing they want the NRL while Stephen talks about what Ita said. BIG WEEK. HUGE.
