Fake News, voting problems, and a classification f*ckup | TV Blackbox S03E22

Do you like coffee? Why do you not like coffee? You really should like coffee - it's a great pairing with a new episode of the TV Blackbox podcast. COFFEE!

Sarah's still off doing some amazing humanitarian work and Dan is on assignment, so that leaves Rob, Brooky and Molk to deliver the latest TV news and opinions fresh to your ears.

This week Molk & Rob go head to head over Brooky's big issue, and there's some talk of Emmys, Carrie Bickmore not coming to Nine, Executive heads start to roll in Seven's "cost-cutting", and we rip out the crystal ball and have a go at guessing what the premiere episode of THE MASKED SINGER will rate - who will be most correct?!

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.
