TRACTOR MONKEYS, ABC1, 8.30pm
DESPITE the garish set, the stupid title that sounds like an ABC3 kids’ show and Merrick Watts’ hamfisted hosting, Tractor Monkeys is a perfectly serviceable way to waste half an hour. It’s Spicks and Specks with silly questions about archival footage instead of music. Team captain Dave O’Neil is reliably funny, so is guest Sam Simmons. The rest of them, not so much. But it’s only new, so give it time.
