Hamish & Andy's Gap Year

We all knew it was coming. We all knew it was gonna be in the UK and likely into Europe. What we all didn’t know was that it “consistently won it’s timelsot” – and for 9 of the 10 weeks it aired in 2011, it did. It will indeed be interesting to see what shenanigans [...]

PREDICTION: The Misses of 2012

Lisa McCune - Reef Doctors

Listing shows here is not intended to be venomous. Not everything works (Live From Planet Earth, anyone?). Some shows need more ‘time in development’. Other shows are simply misguided from the start, or on the wrong network. Either way, I’m sure we’ll see our share of misses in 2012. I hope for the sake of [...]

MolksTVTalk – the Podcast – Myf Warhurst Special

Myf Warhurst Interview

Having now interviewed the delightful Myf Warhurst, we here at MolksTVTalk are two-thirds of the way through our Spicks & Specks interview trilogy. Can Brough be attained? Only time will tell… Myf very generously gave up some rehearsal time from the Spicks & Specktacular Finale tour the team are preparing for to speak with SteveMolk [...]

Penn & Teller's Fool Us (with Jonathan Ross)

With Week 40, thus begins the first week of lots of fast-tracking. Multiple shows across Channels 9 & 10 getting the fast-tracked treatment, though it means different things to different shows. Glee is being shown in Australia within hours of it airing in the US. Survivor: South Pacific is nearly two weeks behind with it’s [...]

Hamish & Andy's Gap Year

With the run to the end of the year in sight, you’d think the networks have it all worked out. From what we’re seeing… some things are still to fall into place. Not many episodes of Top Gear Australia to go, and Channel 9 and shelved it – and they may be considering the same [...]

twentysomething

twentysomething

If I lived my twenties like the characters in twentysoemthing lived theirs, it’s very likely I’d not be alive today to talk about it. While I appreciate that I’m far from the target demographic for this show, very little of it resonated as real to me. Do all Gen Y people really drink that much [...]

Camelot

Just when you think you can’t get enough new shows… Here comes Same Name, Camelot, Top Gear Australia, The X Factor Australia and series two of James May’s Toy Stories. It’s crazy. Mind you, just when you thought reality talent shows were resting, The X Factor comes back with a massive push across 4 nights [...]

Dr Chris Brown - Bondi Vet in Africa

We seem to be having massive finals every other week at the moment. AGT a month ago. MasterChef Australia last week. This coming week is the last of the very successful season 3 of The Block, with the auctions taking place in real life on Saturday and then the final episode/results to air next Sunday [...]

Wil Anderson

One week into The Renovators and the response has been varied. It’s not horrible by any standards, but the 8:30pm timeslot is doing it no favours. Still, this week it’s all about the finals: final week of MasterChef Australia, final of this season of Criminal Minds, the final episode of The Amazing Race Australia and [...]

#HamishAndAndy start their #GapYear

Hamish and Andy start their Gap Year

Channel 9 have been playing the promos ad nauseum, and I’m pretty sure we’d all heard enough of Hamish’s poor rendition of “New York, New York”. Finally tonight we saw the start of what Hamish and Andy are spending all the reported money on, as the first and 10th last episode of Hamish and Andy’s [...]
