QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

The Oprah Win­frey Show, 1pm, Ten Just like lot­tery win­ners who be­come de­pressed when money doesn’t solve all their prob­lems ( money can’t buy you hap­pi­ness, but at least you can park your yacht be­side it), gals who get too skinny too fast can suf­fer con­se­quences. Meet singer Carnie Wil­son, who went from fat to thin to rock bot­tom. 37 Uses for a Dead Sheep, 1pm, SBS Not one of those hor­ri­ble ‘‘ dead cat’’ car­toons ( re­mem­ber the one about the pen­cil sharp­ener?), this is in­stead a se­ri­ous look at the for­tunes of the Pamir Kirghiz, a tribe forcibly re­moved from their home­land in the Pamir moun­tains in Cen­tral Asia. Cat­a­lyst: Don’t Die Young, 8pm, ABC Anatomist Alice Roberts is pas­sion­ate about her sub­ject: our bod­ies. Tonight, the brain: how to keep yours in ter­rific or­der. How does it work and what hap­pens when things go wrong with it? Watch ac­tual brain surgery, if you dare. The Age of Love, 8.30pm ( 9.30pm, Melb, Bris, Perth), Seven With He­roes down and off the books un­til at least 2008, what would be the ideal re­place­ment? How about a re­al­ity show sim­i­lar to The Bach­e­lor , star­ring our own Mark Philip­pous­sis? Yes, fresh from a can­ing in the US where his show bombed like a B- 52, the Poo, pic­tured, brings home the un­likely tale of two camps of lusty women com­pet­ing for his af­fec­tions: the twen­tysome­things and the fortysome­things. Glossy as Ugly Betty with not one ounce of the charm.
