The Voice Australia 2014

@TheVoiceAU S03 Kicks Off On Nine

It's back (saving itself from the ignominy of competing against the last few eps of My Kitchen Rules) and with two new big-name judges along with two returning faves it's looking to be massive. Again. Be prepared as it's all you'll hear about on Nine for the next couple of months (and then it's Big Brother time). From the press release: Kylie Minogue and will.i.am will take to their big red chairs in the highly anticipated return of The Voice on Sunday, May 4, at 6.30pm on Channel … [Read More...]

Recipe to Riches S02

@howcroft Joins #RecipeToRiches S02

Given his form as one of the kings of advertising and brand management from the Gruen franchise including Russel Howcroft in the judging team for Recipe to Riches is a pretty smart move. Also doesn't hurt that he's the Executive GM for Ten Melbourne so he's got an in. Seriously though there are few that would be able to offer as much to the prospective marketers in guidance to help them sell their product. From the press release: Network Ten today announced Russel Howcroft will join the … [Read More...]

Dirty Laundry Live - Brooke Satchwell & Lawrence Mooney

MolksTVTalk the Podcast – S04E03

This week Josh and I sit down to discuss some of the shows coming back "after Easter", including JONAH FROM TONGA, DIRTY LAUNDRY LIVE S02, INTELLIGENCE, WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN, FARGO, THE MILLERS and 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY. There's also a robust discussion on the changes to late night TV in the US (hello JIMMY FALLON vs STEPHEN COLBERT) and what then becomes the inevitable discussion regarding late night in Australia given all three commercial TV Networks are reportedly working up their own … [Read More...]

Fargo - Bill Bob Thornton

Awjeez, Here We Go Again (#Fargo)

"...Or you could just get back in your car and drive away." "Now why would I do that?" "Because some roads you shouldn't go down. Because maps used to say There Be Dragons Here. But that don't mean the dragons aren't there." Fargo comes to TV with a whole lot of snow, Minnesota nice and the perfect amount of menace mixed with murder. The 10 episode adaptation of the Coen Brother's film of the same name slides onto the small screen adapted by Noah Hawley and features more "true" crime in … [Read More...]

Biggest Loser Australia trainers

MolksTVTalk the Podcast – S04E02

With THE BIGGEST LOSER AUSTRALIA finishing up after nine seasons and it very likely not returning, I had the change to lift the lid on the machine that made it and speak with NATE CHALLENOR - contestant in S06. We spoke about his time on the show and what it was like before entering the house, after, and how much the producers did/didn't manipulate what we saw. There's also some frank discussion about why the audience has fallen out of love with the series. Poor CHANNEL TEN - what are they to … [Read More...]

The Biggest Loser: Challenge Australia - The finalists

Farewell #BiggestLoserAU

Season Nine done and dusted and finally after three years of lacklustre ratings The Biggest Loser Australia - in all its variants - is no more. The series made household names out of Michelle Bridges, Shannan Ponton, Ajay Rochester, Tiffiny Hall, "Commando" Steve Willis and offered former swim star Hayley Lewis a second chance at fame. Controversy dogged the show from the outset. Suspicious weight loss methods; claims of emotional manipulation by coaches; obscene amounts of weight lost … [Read More...]
