The end of an era in Australian comedy writing offers an answer to the classic “Why did the chicken cross the road?”…”To pay tribute to Mike McColl-Jones” | S09E07

Another big episode tonight, so thanks for tuning in with Rob, Robbo, and Molk as we livestreamed the podcast recording (or catching up via audio podcast).

Every Tuesday night in season from 8pm AEDT/7pm AEST/etc., you can join us live on the TV Blackbox Facebook page or YouTube channel. We’d absolutely love it if you joined in – as many keep doing – by commenting on the livestream…which allows us to include a broad sample in the episode to help punctuate our conversation. For those that join us live-thanks for playing along, friends!

Watch here in glorious technicolour:

So what did we talk about? Check this out:

  • It finally happened…streaming has overtaken linear broadcast TV as the predominant way we watch television (and it happened last year!);
  • Channel 9 Perth (yes, it exists WA – that’s the channel between 8 and 10) shake up their afternoons in a programming tipping point;
  • Molk manages to wedge in some chat about the new VOZ ratings metrics and how everything is travelling (zero surprises, honestly);
  • Sharon Osborne attempts to be relevant by ranting against Simon Cowell and a tree fell over in a forest and nobody heard it so it never happened; and
  • The last of the old-school television comedy writers Mike McColl-Jones submits his last script and heads to the eternal green room for a nightcap with Graham, Don, Bert, and the gang.

Then, as always, we round out the night with another TV BINGEBOX segment, bursting at the seams (some upmolks here and some downmolks there).

So glad you could join us for this episode of the TV BLACKBOX Podcast (the finest in podcasty podcastness that ever podded).
