Okay folks, time for another look at what’s coming up this week – it’s New This Week: The Olympics Are Always On Edition!
The 2012 Olympic Games in London get underway in the morning (Prime, 7.00am) – check out yesterday’s OTB for a list of highlights. Later, Location Location Location returns for a new season (One, 8.30pm). At the same time, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation finishes Season 12; I’ve enjoyed the Ted Danson/Elisabeth Shue era so far, and am looking forward to more (TV3, 8.30pm).
After the conclusion of Planet Dinosaur, local series The Zoo is back (One, 7.00pm).
Last Man Standing and Modern Family are done for the year, which means its repeats of Destroyed In Seconds and a new season of Dog Patrol (TV3, 7.30pm/8.00pm). While we’re here, I thought Last Man Standing lost a bit of steam as the season went along, but it was a decent sitcom – it didn’t push the envelope, it didn’t bring anything new to the table, but it was a bit of a laugh.
A new series of Coastwatch starts tonight (One, 7.30pm), while former cricketer Freddie Flintoff plays doco host in The Hidden Side Of Sport, a look at “the darker side of professional sport” with interviews with Ricky Hatton, Shane Warne and Vinnie Jones, among others (BBC Knowledge, 8.30pm).
Fat-fighting gameshow The Biggest Loser is back for another season (Four, 8.30pm) but the real action is on Comedy Central with the launch of Olympico, an irreverent take on the Olympic Games, hosted by Leigh “That Guy” Hart with help from Jeremy “Newsboy” Wells and Jason “You May Know Him From Moon TV and/or Nothing Trivial” Hoyte (Comedy Central, 9.00pm).
Season 7 draws to a close on Bones (TV3, 8.30pm) while Gordon Ramsay is back to dispense some f**king good f**king advice on a new season of Kitchen Nightmares (TV2, 9.30pm).
What are you looking forward to this week?
