Must watch:

The Newsroom (Soho, 8.30pm)
Tonight’s episode sounds like it’s going to be a good one (mind you, they pretty much all are, in my opinion). The staff’s anniversary party is cut short when they learn the President will be making an impromptu national address on a matter of national security.

Private Practice (TV2, 9.35pm)
Fans of Private Practice won’t want to miss tonight’s episode. Continue reading »

Must watch:

60 Minutes (TV3, 7.30pm)
In the ‘shudder’ stakes, this one is right up there. On tonight’s episode, 60 Minutes talks with a woman who discovered the reason she couldn’t get pregnant was that a parasite was living inside her. Sounds a bit like the movie Alien. There’s also an interview with Gordon Wood, who was convicted of murdering his girlfriend by throwing her off a cliff close to Sydney. Then, in February this year, after three years in jail, Wood was acquitted by the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal. Continue reading »

Must watch:

The Free Range Cook (TV One, 7pm)
Annabel Langbein is back for an all-new season of her cooking show, based at her lakeside cabin in Wanaka. This show makes me very hungry!

Masterchef Australia (TV One, 7.30pm)
If you’ve been following this show then you definitely won’t want to miss the final episode tonight. The final three face a series of difficult (to say the least, I’m sure) challenges, to see who will win the title of Masterchef Australia. Continue reading »
