A very special welcome to Lauren Lee (@laurenlee_) joining Dave & SteveMolk on MolksTVTalk the podcast for the first time. Her level-headed input was required as we ventured into our half-yearly report card on the networks and we’re all quite direct about what we liked and didn’t like in our shows from the first half of 2012.

There’ve been some debacles & horrors, as well as some wins and amazing successes – and not all for the one network like it has been for the past couple of years. We’d also love to hear your thoughts on what you think were wins and losses for the year, so jump over to the podcast page on http://MolksTVTalk.com and leave your comments on this episode and we’ll discuss them at length.

On this week’s show we cover such topics as:

  • 60 second news: HBO release THE NEWSROOM pilot online for free… for the US.
  • 60 second news: Coming soon – GRUEN SWEAT & GRUEN PLANET.
  • 60 second news: Does anyone mind that they may not get to see THE SHIRE?
  • 60 second news: Ch10’s EVERYBODY DANCE NOW has the boss’s wife as host.
  • The first half of 2012 review: Ch9, Ch10, Ch7, ABC, SBS.
  • SteveMolk, Dave & Lauren answer questions and offer this week’s MustWatch TV.
  • Sizzletown.
