Wildlife Down Un­der With Nick Baker, 7.30pm, An­i­mal Planet On Queens­land’s Mis­sion Beach, young English wildlife whip­per­snap­per Nick Barker is on a mis­sion of his own: to track down a cas­sowary. Will he be suc­cess­ful? I reckon he might. Des­per­ate House­wives, 8.30pm, Seven It’s mid- July and many of our favourite shows are head­ing for the show­ers to make room for new play­ers. In this third- sea­son finale, Des­per­ate House­wives has a few sur­prises in store. Sui­cides, be­tray­als, sur­prise wed­dings, that sort of thing. Susan, who was go­ing to marry Ian a cou­ple of weeks ago, is hap­pily pre­par­ing for her wed­ding to Mike, even as Gabrielle mar­ries Vic­tor. With Rick dis­patched, Lynette has a med­i­cal cri­sis of her own just as her hus­band is get­ting back on his feet. When Bree re­turns from Switzer­land, the four main house­wives are re­united for a dose of in­dus­trial- grade wed­ding sen­ti­ment. But are things as sweet as they seem? Brothers & Sis­ters, 9.30pm, Seven This show, too, has its finale tonight. A dif­fer­ent an­i­mal to its net­work sis­ter ( above), B& S goes for the emo­tional jugu­lar in­stead of the weird and funny bones. Justin ( Dave Annable, pic­tured) has his de­par­ture for ac­tive ser­vice in Iraq moved for­ward and doesn’t want it to ruin his sis­ter Kitty’s en­gage­ment party. The sen­a­tor’s fam­ily pro­vides comic re­lief at the party, most un­be­com­ing for a pres­i­dent- in- wait­ing. Kitty sums things up best: ‘‘ It’s been an aw­ful year, but it’s been the best aw­ful year of my life.’’
