QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

Ugly Betty, 7.30pm, Seven The for­mer top- rat­ing Betty has been on a steady rat­ings slide for weeks, now lin­ger­ing at about num­ber 32, lower even than McLeod’s Daugh­ters . Cer­tainly the nov­elty may have worn off, but a straw poll in the of­fice says Betty is too camp and girly to hold male view­ers, who are turn­ing in droves to 60 Min­utes . Tonight’s episode, en­ti­tled I’m Com­ing Out, is un­likely to re­verse the trend. Pyra­mids, 7.30pm, Na­tional Ge­o­graphic The pyra­mids of an­cient Egypt stand like gi­ant sen­tinels watch­ing over greater Cairo. Built more than 2000 years be­fore the birth of Christ, the stone gi­ants con­tinue to mys­tify all who see them. This pro­gram, like so many be­fore it, seeks to sort the facts from the myths about the pyra­mids. Noth­ing new for avid doc­u­men­tary watch­ers, but it may fas­ci­nate those out there who haven’t heard it all be­fore.
