The House of Tiny Tear­aways, 10.30am, LifeStyle A new se­ries of this pro­gram about, shall we say, dif­fi­cult kids. Three des­per­ate fam­i­lies, each over­whelmed by par­ent­ing prob­lems that have turned their tod­dlers into tear­aways, move into a treat­ment fa­cil­ity for six days in the hope that they can turn around their lives for­ever. Pi­rate Mas­ter, 7.30pm, Ten Shiver me tim­bers, does ev­ery­body want to be a pi­rate? This is re­al­ity fluff, a cross be­tween Sur­vivor and The Amaz­ing Race . Be­ing at sea, the scenery is spec­tac­u­lar, and I’m not talk­ing about the re­lent­less pa­rade of ex­posed flesh. It also has a Daddo ( Cameron, pic­tured) in the host role, I sus­pect be­cause he sounds a bit like Rus­sell Crowe in Mas­ter & Com­man­der. As you may ex­pect, there can be only one pi­rate mas­ter, so reg­u­lar elim­i­na­tions are to be feared. Argh, me re­mote con­trol, on the dou­ble, if ye will. Law & Or­der: Crim­i­nal In­tent, 9.30pm, Ten The pol­i­tics of deaf­ness take cen­tre stage tonight as Goren and Eames in­ves­ti­gate the mur­der of an ear sur­geon. It seems the guy tes­ti­fied at the trial of an­other es­teemed doc­tor. The plot thick­ens. Lost, 9.30pm ( 8.30pm, Melb, Adel, Perth), Seven The the­ory that the folks on this is­land are dead al­ready looks more cred­i­ble af­ter tonight’s episode. Locke and Sawyer re­alise they have a bond in their mu­tual ha­tred of an­other Sawyer. James’s re­li­able fury suits Locke’s pur­pose per­fectly.
