Seven’s The Big Adventure will premiere at 6:30pm next Sunday, head to head with Nine’s new factual The Embassy.
Meanwhile TEN’s reality series Recipe to Riches will air Tuesday October 21 but is unlikely to end before the end of the ratings year (November 29th).
Last week TEN also premiered Party Tricks with Asher Keddie and Rodger Corser while Seven resumed Beauty and the Geek.
New and returning US shows are now also in play with Gotham, Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, The Blacklist, Homeland and The Big Bang Theory. Seven is also expected to screen Resurrection, which returned to the US on September 28, while Nine previously indicated it would fasttrack Stalker, which began on October 1st in the US.
But there’s also some creative programming going on. Nine’s David Attenborough: Life has some excellent promos running given it is a 2009 series that has screened on the ABC (including in repeats in January this year). King’s Cross ER this Thursday has previously aired on Foxtel, as has TEN’s Territory Cops.
Now that Mental As… week has ended for ABC watch out for The Chaser’s Media Circus, Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery, Upper Middle Bogan, It’s a Date, Flying Miners and Happy Valley this week alone.
The pick of upcoming SBS titles is arguably the Free to Air premiere of Irish drama The Fall, which has also aired on Pay TV.
Plenty of choice -enjoy it while it lasts!
