Ten Releases Good News Week as a Podcast


While the the writers continue to strike because the studios won’t give them 4 frickin’ cents, Australian TV network Ten (which comprises of near-100% American shows) is feeling the pinch. Rather than coming up with new and original ideas, they decided to bring back an old TV show they axed 8 years ago — Good News Week.

Not that it’s a bad thing — GNW is as good as it ever was, it just irritates me that it took a writer’s strike on the other side of the world for Ten to produce their own content for a change.

But I don’t want to be too harsh on Ten, because in a surprising move they have started releasing Good News Week as a full-length 40minute podcast download on iTunes. This is most unusual for a commercial station to do this, and Ten should be commended for it. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

      I don’t understant Itunes. I’ve been downloading the podcasts for the past year and a half, and now all the old episodes are gone. Never a response to emails.
