Homeland (TV3, 8.35pm)
I am so excited that this show is going to be screening so soon after it plays in the US each week! TV3 and Four are really on the ball with this. TVNZ needs to take note, as viewers will start demanding it from them too. Homeland is such an addictive show, and no doubt this season will be as good as the first one. On the season premiere: Brody learns he is the political future of the party, while a recovering Carrie receives a disturbing request from a surprise source.

Californication (TV3, 9.45pm)
It’s the season five premiere of the naughty but amusing Californication tonight, and TV3 are playing the first two episodes back to back. Continue reading »

Happy Days star reportedly homeless
Erin Moran, who played Joanie Cunningham on Happy Days, is reported to be homeless, after being kicked out of the trailer she was living in with her husband and mother in law, the latter of whom grew tired of her hard-partying ways. Moran had been living in a trailer park in Indiana after being evicted from her California home. In July, Moran and her Happy Days castmates were each awarded $65,000 after they filed a lawsuit to get revenue from licensing and merchandise of Happy Days. RadarOnline reports that she has blown nearly all that money already, however.

60 Minutes (TV3, 7.30pm)
I’m really looking forward to tonight’s 60 Minutes, as it has an interview with Anna Guy, the former wife of Ewen McDonald, who was recently found not guilty of the murder of her brother, Scott Guy. I can’t wait to see what she says about him, now that the trial is over. She will address questions from reporter Sarah Hall such as, does she agree with the jury’s verdict? What did she know of the night “missions” her husband was carrying out? How are she and her four children coping? And can she ever love again?

Nothing Trivial (TV One, 8.30pm)
Tonight’s episode looks like it’s going to be a good one: Brian and Emma have babies on the brain, Catherine is in denial, and Mac is feeling the pressure.  Continue reading »

Tamara Drewe (Sky Movies 1, 8.30pm)

The X Factor USA (TV3, 7.30pm)
It’s the final round of auditions tonight. Hopefully there will be another handful of impressive performers. I don’t know how the judges will whittle down the numbers this year. There are so many amazing performers. Looking forward to seeing which group each judge is assigned to after the bootcamp round, as well.

Opening Act (E! 8.30pm)
I saw the promo for this show while watching TV, and even just watching the promo made me feel nervous. The premise of this show is, talented unknown singers who have posted videos of themselves singing on Youtube are selected to be the opening acts for some of the world’s most well-known singers.
