WIN, 7.30PM

It was Mel Brooks who said, “Tragedy is when you cut your fin­ger. Com­edy is when you fall into an open sewer and die”. You can’t help but think Hamish Blake and Andy Lee ( pic­tured) feel the same way. Like Brooks, they sim­ply refuse to grow up even though there are people who think they’re get­ting a lit­tle old to be pulling dan­ger­ous pranks. In episode two of Gap Year, they hook up with a tour group that spe­cialises in giv­ing a “Mex­i­can bor­der cross­ing ex­pe­ri­ence”. That doesn’t sound dodgy. Then they head into the Ama­zon jun­gle to blow some darts. What could pos­si­bly go wrong?

7MATE, 9.30PM

Paul Fenech’s cross­over from out­ra­geous com­edy ( Housos, Fat Pizza) to tongue in cheek re­al­ity ( Bo­gan Hunters) has been a touch awk­ward, but the grand fi­nal edi­tion of this show is the ul­ti­mate in car crash TV. You sim­ply can’t look away as the seven fi­nal­ists from around the coun­try bat­tle it out to be crowned Aus­tralia’s Great­est Bo­gan. The hot favourite is Andrew from Tassie, who has eight kids and no teeth ( the only way he can eat a ke­bab is by throw­ing it in a blen­der and drink­ing it).
