[Nine/8:30pm] 1 vs 100. Premiere. Are you ready for Eddie? The Age reckons this show is so big it needed to shoot at Seven’s Docklands Studios. Wrong. Central City Studios isn’t owned by Seven. Bit of a blunder there.

[Nine/9:30pm] Justice. Premiere. “Sneak Peek” Pretty horrible and unlikeable bunch of lawyers trying worthy cases, in this new Jerry Bruckheimer drama. The only person I liked was Oz’s Eamonn Walker. Even the dependable Victor Garber was pretty obnoxious here. It’s been axed in America so why the hell is it replacing Nip / Tuck?

Billie begins to work out more, but discovers the reason behind a girl’s figure. Sam is in pain after his scissors slip out of his hands during personal self- grooming. So funny a synopsis I just had to list it.

[Seven/1:10am Tue] Straight Plan for the Gay Man. STEVEN.Three gay men will straighten up their lives and put themselves in the traditionally blokey roles and try to pull the wool over the ‘straight’ world’s eyes for a day. Terribly unfunny stand up comedians in a bad concept.

[ABC/8:30pm] The West Wing. Rumours start that Fidel Castro is seriously ill, which creates speculation surrounding the situation between communist Cuba and the democratic United States. Bartlet is propelled into a dilemma – to continue secret talks with Cuba’s ailing dictator and lift an antiquated embargo, or yield to bipartisan political fallout and reaffirm 40-year-old sanctions. Meanwhile, Leo and Kate discover they have more in common than politics. After winning the Republican nomination for presidency, Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) begins working on his campaign. Political strategist Bruno Gianelli (Ron Silver) gives the Republican candidate advice about choosing a vice president and handling Vinick’s latest controversy – his failure to attend church. The Democratic candidates are stuck in a three-way race tow in the presidential nomination. Russell (Gary Cole) barely leads Santos (Jimmy Smits), and Hoynes (Tim Matheson) is now a very distant third. Bartlet tries to show unity in the party by wrangling Russell and Santos for a photo opp.
