Best on the Box

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

ABC, 8.30pm

Af­ter a few mis­fires – like the dread­ful fea­ture film Any Ques­tions for Ben and the stinky quiz show Have You Been Pay­ing At­ten­tion? – the Work­ing Dog team gets its mojo back with this funny satire about bu­reau­cracy and plan­ning in­side the fic­tional Na­tion Build­ing Au­thor­ity. Tonight, the sup­pos­edly sim­ple ex­er­cise of chang­ing the NBA’s logo turns into a dis­as­ter, not least be­cause of its re­sem­blance to a fa­mous al­bum cover. While they’re still find­ing their feet in this pre­miere episode, next week’s is an in­stant com­edy clas­sic.

ABC, 9pm

Tom Ballard ( pic­tured) hosts Re­al­ity Check, a Gruen Trans­fer- style ex­am­i­na­tion of re­al­ity tele­vi­sion, ex­pos­ing the sneaky edit­ing, fake sto­ry­lines and be­hind- the- scenes drama of the big re­al­ity fran­chises. This new eight- part se­ries looks at why it’s be­come such a po­tent cul­tural force and the dom­i­nant form of TV. There will also be jokes, and lots of them.
