HAPPY NEW YEAR! Just because everyone and everything else is on holiday, doesn’t mean that MolksTVTalk is going to let the side down! You’re all shopped out and you don’t want to watch the Cricket? No worries, there’s lots on television to enjoy. As previously mentioned, movies are filling out the schedules of the digitial multi-channels but there’s also some good time-wasting to be found in that as well.

  • (Nothing to report this week)

Lots doing, huh? The Family Confidential series has been another wonderful example of Summer programming from the ABC, culminating this week with a feature on Jimmy Barnesd & his clan. The second AU series of Who Do You Think You Are has also performed well for SBS1, however the feature on Georgie Parker will likely mean you’ll need to wind down the volume. A lot. The final Surivor:Nicaragua means the end to late night viewing for fans – for now. All they can hope for is it moves to GO! or GEM and gets a decent timeslot. If you’re so interested, Richard Wilkins Wilde takes his TV career right back to where it started, by hosting film clips this New Year’s Eve on Party Zone 2010: Hits & Stars. My, how the career worm turns for some.
